Scream cleverly plays with movie conventions and the audience's expectations so that we're kept constantly guessing.
MaryAnn Johanson, The Flick Filosopher bridges a gap between two genres that should have overlapped long ago: horror and murder mysteries...The self-referential tone of the movie allows us to step back from the horror...for those looking for a good scare, Scream is an excellent choice...The killer is more human than in most horror films, and therefore more terrifying...The killer's humanity and thus his potential vulnerability makes him all the more frightening.
Marty Mapes, Movie Habit

...brought back the "slasher flick"..."Scream" is a surprisingly great flick..."Scream" opens with one of the best openings in a movie I've really ever seen...a gripping, hysterical, and satirical little frightfest...a deliciously fun world of whodunit, as well as some good old cliche-ridden scenes of goriness..."Scream" is, essentially, a fantastically fun flick to watch, even after repeat viewings..."Scream" is basically the best horror film I've seen since..."The Shining."
Ted Prigge, rec arts movies reviews

...Craven's brilliant use of film-within-film-within-film is taken to new's impossible not to sit back and go grinning into this dark, gory ride.
Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle

...three whole words: Totally. Fucking. in-depth study of the genre that terrifies at the same time as it good-naturedly pokes a little fun at itself...Thank God Craven has imbued Scream with witty dialogue, fine plot development, and an ending that actually seems remotely plausible...It's a... well... a scream.
Christopher Null,'s party time for horror-movie fans...a chilling opening sequence designed to make the faint of heart rush for the exits...turns the jabs at horror formula into wicked fun with flickers of intelligence. It will have horror fans howling..."Scream" is exceptionally violent...For many who have lost sight of how entertaining a horror thriller can be, this one aims to get folks hyped.
Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle

Scream is the scariest thriller in ages. It's a genuine jump-from-you-seat, cover-your-eyes, scream-aloud, warn-the-characters thrill ride. When you're not howling with laughter, you'll be shrieking with fright.
Louis B. Hobson, Jam! Movies

The pic's chills are top-notch.
Leonard Klady, Variety

"Scream" is funny, scary and self-mocking
Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire

...a gore-fest for your holiday dialogue is riddled with stabs at other horrors and fantasies...Slasher movies were deemed dead after a string of recent failures. Yet, like their own maddening villains, they rise again...don't close your mind to such an inventive concoction. One last time, despite all your better instincts, go ahead--open that theater door.
Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
