#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!”
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.
