Scream (1996) has the following synopsis:
Wes Craven re-invented and revitalised the slasher-horror genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. Craven is happy to provide both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts – but the victims aren’t always the ones you’d expect.
Wes Craven directed the film from a screenplay by Kevin Williamson. The film stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Rose McGowan, Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich, Jamie Kennedy, Henry Winkler, and Drew Barrymore.
