Richmond Hill's rating of the film Scream – Schrei!

For a frequently gimcrack genre that thrives on gimmick - then repetition - the meta-play at work melds both, deftly riffing on expectation - and then bloodily delivering on it. In-jokes aside (see Scary Movie for that: spoofing a pastiche...), this rises or falls on structure. However this is classically delivered with precision, being Craven’s most polished work with a genuine love for this most maligned of genres.
