No one had tried for a million years to make a cheeky teenfun horror movie (kinda like Clueless but with a gnarly demise for all) and then Wes Craven did, and then EVERYONE DID and it stopped being fun, it started being annoying (save for The Faculty which is a HIGHLIGHT of the era, TRUST!)
But before it was annoying..Poor Sidney Prescott was being hunted !!!! And although Party of Five was beloved by many, I LOVE YOU, NEVE CAMPBELL, for Scream (and its multiple sequels).
PS, It may be too long ago for many of you young'uns to know/remember but it was sort of awesome to have Drew Barrymore be in the first scene- she was a crazy naked posing Dave Letterman tittie-flasher with random movies at this point..I feel like Scream re-legitimized her? (I mean really, I hope she sends Wes Craven a bloody fruit basket every year as a thank you).
But back to Neve: HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I can't wait to see your freckles and semi-stuttery indignance in Scream 4 (out in April 2011).
