It’s almost Halloween, which means we have horror movies on the brain. And one of our favorites here at Nerdist is Scream. The 1996 film—penned by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven—is a classic in the teen slasher genre. It follows a high school student named Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who becomes the target of a masked serial killer known as Ghostface. And it was also loosely based on a true story.
