    Awesome in-depth video on SCREAM! It did re-define the genre and it is hard to imagine it existing without the origins of Psycho or John Carpenter's Halloween. In addition, Wes Craven directing Scream with it's references and meta nature when he did New Nightmare shortly before. Great video! Keep it up! Scream sure is one of my favorite scary movies.
