Where to watch every Scream movie
Four kids put their hands in from a scene from Scream VI.

What's your favorite scary movie? 27 years ago, that question was posed to Casey Becker (Fever Pitch's Drew Barrymore) by a masked killer named Ghostface in the opening scene of Scream. It - spoiler alert - did not end well for Casey. However, the course of slashers changed with the release of Scream. The film brilliantly satirized horror clichés and featured characters who openly spoke about real horror movies. But at the end of the day, Scream was still a slasher that did not shy away from blood, gore, or violence.

The Scream franchise is now amid a resurgence thanks to Scream, the fifth film in the series. The 2022 film helped relaunch the franchise and introduced Ghostface to a new generation of horror fans. Scream grossed over $140 million worldwide, spawning a direct sequel, Scream VI, which hits theaters on March 10.
