A little subdued today. Just found out one of Mum's old high school friends died on Mum's birthday. Still no news from Dad's best friend who is in hospital. Ugh. And one of Mum's work friends might have lung cancer. I just. I know they say these things come in threes, so I hope that's it for now. Say a little prayer for those three.

#19. Scream (1996)

““You sick fucks. You’ve seen one too many movies!”
“Now Sid, don’t you blame the movies. Movies don’t create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!”

SYNOPSIS: One year after the death of Sidney Prescott's (Campbell) mother, two students turn up gutted. When a serial killer appears, Sidney begins to suspect whether her mother's death and the two new deaths are related. No one is safe, as the killer begins to pick everyone off one by one. Everyone's a suspect in this case.

WHY IS IT ON THE LIST: This is not just a good movie, but a good series. I love these movies so much, because not only do I find them genuinely scary, but they're also funny. They don't take themselves that seriously, and are able to point out and laugh at all the tropes of horror movies that have come before them. Neve Campbell is brilliant as Sidney; watching this movie, you will find yourself constantly rooting for her. It's awesome to see a capable female hero in a movie that takes care of herself and kills the bad guy and doesn't need a man to help her.
