My feelings are true for all slasher movies – even if they are bad, but a lot of them – but there is something extraordinary in the movie Yell movies. The cast, the fashion, the music, the unbridled dedication to revive the genre … it's the quintessence of the campiness par excellence of the 90s.
The four films flourish by playing riddles games loaded with tensions that vary according to the identity of the murderer associated with the identity of the serial killer nicknamed Ghostface. Yet there are moments of tangible satire, introspection and reflexivity of pop culture in the midst of bloody horror.
Yell Creators Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson are often credited for leading a revolution. They built a set of iconic films that continue to impact viewers and filmmakers from 1997 onward. I know what you did last summer to 2017 Happy feast of death, another college-based slasher, but with a time loop puzzle.
The first three Yell The films were released between 1996 and 2000 and were marketed as a trilogy, but fans are eager to continue. In April 2011, Scream 4 presented for the first time to mediocre critics and presented the return of surviving protagonists Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox).
On the occasion of the eighth anniversary of the franchise's latest film (so far), I've looked at what she does best and how. What's a slasher movie without a strange innovation? These 15 dead are classified according to their macabre, of course, but also because they are ridiculously exaggerated, Yell specialty

15. Tom Prinze (Matt Keeslar), Scream 3
Cause of deathInflated by a gas leak explosion
The weapon of choice in every Yell the film is usually a knife. That's why Tom's fiery death stands out.
Tom, Angelina and Jennifer hang out at Jennifer's, crying the canceled production of the movie in which they were supposed to play. Stab 3 Ex-cop Dewey and journalist Gale are also present. Ghostface is starting to send threatening faxes (what is it, the year 2000?) To taunt them about the upcoming death and suggest that it is up to date. 39, inside the house. Everyone is running outside. But the faxes come up all the time, so Tom goes home to see if they reveal the name of the possible victim. Before you know it, boom! The house is in flames, just like a naive Tom.
14. Cotton Weary (Liev Schrieber), Scream 3
Cause of deathStabbed, stabbed and stabbed again
Cotton has been around since the first movie, but I emerged as a nice character when I saved the life of Sidney and Gale Scream 2 Unfortunately, he did not survive longer than Scream 3 & # 39; s opening scene. At least I had his last wish and I became a popular TV show host.
The killer calls him and pretends to be a big fan before admitting that he is about to kill Cotton's girlfriend, Christine, what he's doing . Then he chased Cotton around the house before finally emptying it. The killer even uses a voice modulator to say goodbye to Cotton in his own voice. Dark, yes, but remember – this list rewards innovation.
13. Olivia Morris (Marielle Jaffe), Scream 4
Cause of death: Stabbed, pushed through the window for a dramatic effect
The only Scream 4 Dead on this list, Olivia's bags remove a punch. This is the first time that Ghostface does not contact his victim directly, but rather passes through Jill and Kirby, his best friend.
Jill is on the phone with Olivia, who lives in the opposite house, when the killer calls Kirby and suggests that he's hiding in the closet. After a confirmation at a slow pace that he does not know, Kirby realizes that Ghostface is hiding in Olivia's closet. Then they see their friend being clubbed. Ghostface is more show, less narrated – so he pushes his victim out the window for his friends to see him coming up close.
12. Sarah Darling (Jenny McCarthy), Scream 3
Cause of deathStabbed in a scene straight out of an obvious trope
Sarah's death is on the list, not only because of the way it happened, but because of what caused it. She receives a call from the director Roman for him to come to the studio to queue. Once there, she realizes that Ghostface used a voice modulator to trick her and she now has to hide in the costume department. The killer is already present and she was stabbed. D & # 39; agreement
But this order, because it turns out – spoiler alert – Roman is Ghostface in Scream 3, and the answer was there all along.
11. Jennifer Jolie (Parker Posey), Scream 3
Cause of death: Stabbed and fallen in a mirror
This scene is on the list because of its fun and nonsense. Let me explain.
Jennifer finds herself behind these mirrors and sees Dewey and Gale in the room, even though they do not see her. She is looking for help while the killer stabs her, but they see the mirrors move. Dewey starts shooting at them one by one; a dead Jennifer falls through. What matters is that Ghostface disappeared with the skills of a magician, even as he stood there in the previous scene.
A continuity error caused the death of Jennifer Jolie. She would probably have approved if she was alive.
10. Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich), Yell
Cause of death: Stabbed with an umbrella, shot in the head
Billy was the main murderer of the first film – he was helped by Stu, but we get there in a minute – so naturally, his death had an impact on the larger Yell universe.
First, I asked Sydney, his girlfriend, to dismiss any suspicion. He came back and revealed his true nature with the now epic line: "We all go crazy sometimes." Sidney stabs him with an umbrella and it weakens him, he is then touched by Gale and everyone thinks he's screwed up – but surprise he's not, so Sidney puts him a last bullet in the head.
Billy's death established the notion that the killer has superhuman strength and will not be easy to kill. This trend continues for all films.
9. Phil Stevens (Omar Epps), Scream 2
Cause of deathStabbed in a bathroom
Phil is the first Scream 2 the death. Ghostface kills him when he is in the bathroom hiding in the next stall and prompting him to listen through the door while he emits … strange sounds. Disgusting and sad, but also, there is a lesson to remember: do not be a monstrous!
8. Principal Himbry (Henry Winkler), Yell
Cause of deathStabbed but in a classic way
There is nothing wrong with using the tropes fully. In the first Shout After a series of murders, Chief Himbry suspends classes and imposes a curfew. He is the only one attending school except the janitor, for whatever reason.
Fonzie Himbry has the intuition that someone follows him, but after a few laps, shrugs to the idea. If only. The killer hides behind his door and rushes at Himbry, stabbing him to death. His body is then suspended on the football field in the sight of all. yuck
7. Casey "Cici" Cooper (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Scream 2
Cause of death: Thrown a roof
I'm afraid of heights, so Cici's death is personally hard to watch. The girl is straight thrown from a roof dramatically.
The entire dorm is a party and Cici is designated to stay indoors in case anyone needs help or a ride. This also makes it a perfect bait. The killer calls him with his mark "What is your favorite horror movie?" phone call She is almost out of the house before Ghostface pursues her until the roof. And then, as shown in the gif above, splat!
6. Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy), Scream 2
Cause of death: Repeatedly stabbed cuts, slit throats
Randy's death was unexpected and sad. One of the tracks of the original, he did not survive as a result, which Randy himself predicted, as we know from the video of his found in Scream 3 I told you, these movies become meta.
Ghostface [in this case, Mrs. Loomis] the busy guard being on the phone. It's funny because they talk about famous murderers when she picks him up in the pickup truck in broad daylight in the middle of the campus. The damn trust! The last famous words of Randy were: "Manson, Bundy, OJ?"
5. Derek Feldman (Jerry O'Connell), Scream 2
Cause of death: Binds and shot.
Sidney's boyfriend has a symbolic Biblical death. It's traumatizing, certainly, but what's funny about this scene is that the killer knows that when he follows Sidney, she'll go straight to the theater. We knew that Ghostface was strangely strong, but now he / she is also omniscient. A deadly combo, especially for Derek.
To torture Sidney, who mistakenly believed that his boyfriend might be the killer, one of the current killers take out a captured Derek and carry the final blow to the heart.
4. Maureen Evans (Jada Pinkett Smith), Scream 2
Cause of deathStunned, dies in front of a whole movie theater full of morons
Oh, Maureen, we lost you too early. After pointing out that the heroines of the slasher movie are sometimes stupid, she gets stabbed by Ghostface in her seat.
It's a pretty simple killer, but, with Pinkett Smith's guttural cry, the reason he's so high on the list is for the killer's audacity. Ghostface is convinced that even if Maureen calls for help, it will be useless. Everyone around her amuses herself noisily watching the movie in the movie Stab, based on the events of Shout 1
3. Stu Macher (Matthew Lillard), Yell
Cause of death: The television has thrown on the head.
In the last fight between Billy and Stu, the two serial killers of this film, Sidney dominates the film after he has already been destroyed. She then electrocutes her by leaving her on television, a.k.a. A makeshift weapon on him. She got by with what she had and it really put Stu's death in evidence.
2. Tatum Riley (Rose McGowan), Yell
Cause of death: Broken neck / electrocution by the garage door
Listen, Ghostface tried to kill Tatum by stabbing her, but she was a fighter. A damn good. She could even throw him bottles of beer. But then she thought that it would be wise to escape by a tiny pet door.
The killer does not have much in addition to leaving the garage door and lighting over the work for him. It is certainly a frightening and unexpected method of killing someone, which is why it is the second price of this list.
1. Casey Becker (Drew Barrymore), Yell
Cause of deathStabbed in the heart
The best performance of Barrymore (sorry, Santa Clarita diet!cemented Yell with an opening scene for books.
Ghostface's first on-screen murder, Casey is tormented by the movie "What is your favorite horror movie?" phone call, followed by a game to save the life of his boyfriend. She must watch him die before being killed, arms hanging with his organs.
The first movie made a statement by killing its biggest star in the first 10 minutes. It was a twisted trip ever since.
With the raises, the sequels and the restart of the latest Hollywood trend, there is perhaps hope that we will arrive at Scream 5 In the meantime, we'll be here to watch again our (I guess it's collective because who can not take advantage Yell?) favorite horror movie.
