Trevor Tillman's rating of the film Scream – Schrei!

Paradoxically, the movie has an elusive sense of realism that's a byproduct of it being a spoof. When the news cameraman reacts goofily to abruptly getting his throat slashed, or when Matthew Lillard cries, "my mom and dad are going to be so mad at me!", it feels real because it plays out almost as absurdly as it might in real life. It pulls off this tightrope act largely thanks to its meta storytelling.
