In 1996, director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson revitalised the horror genre with Scream, an edge of seat thriller that poked fun at the conventions of the slasher flick, asking "Do you like scary movies?" before famously killing off Drew Barrymore in the nail-biting opening sequence. Such was the success of the first film at the box office, Scream spawned two sequels in 1997 and 2000, pitting regular cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette against the sinister, knife-wielding Ghostface. You just can't keep a deranged psychopath down and the masked terror returns in Scre4m, directed and penned once again by Craven and Williamson respectively.
