    With SCREAM 4 right around the corner, let's look back at the movie that started it all, or more specifically, the new wave of slashers it inspired. After SCREAM came a ton of hip, tongue-in-cheek, The WB-ish slashers aiming to cash in on the Wes Craven-Kevin Williamson breakout. Which of the pack is your favorite?

    Urban Legend for me. Love the music, the cast and gothic vibe some of the sets have. Too bad they shot the movie in summer when the script took place during winter.

    Valentine. It's the most reminiscent of the 80's slashers and a whole lot of fun.

    Halloween H2O. Although not a great film by any stretch, at least it had Jamie back.

    I personally hated Scream and all of the films it inspired. I think the 90's had some of the worst dreck in horror film history.

    Valentine for me. Has the most replay value and there's just something special about it. I also love how it ends.

    A close second would be I Know What You Did Last Summer. I still remember seeing that in the cinema and completely loving it. When I think about it nowadays, it's still a pretty classy, well-shot and tightly written slasher.

    Halloween: Resurrection. I know...everyone hates this one, but I had a lot of fun with it. Busta is annoying but his screen time can't be more than 5 minutes.

    Bride Of Chucky is awesome ! It's a lot of fun, a pretty original sequel that more than keeps up with the original.

    Halloween H20 for me. Its not as great film like the original or its first sequel as it has some failings, but it also has some great aspects. Of that list, the only other ones I enjoy are Urban Legend and Bride of Chucky. Both films are quite fun. The first I Know What You Did is a movie that I was fond of many years ago but have since developed a distaste for... same goes for Jason X... however, the sequel is rubbish. I haven't seen Valentine.

    H20. Definately hasn't aged well but in 1998 seeing Jamie Lee Curtis and Myers together again, hearing mr. sandman and the begining of the film and Michael getting his head cut off at the end all together gave me a horrorgasim.

    I hate going against Jason X as it's easily the funnest film on the list, but I think Urban Legend is the best on the list. Bride of Chucky gets honorable mention, but UL works on different levels and is tense in a few parts.

    Bride Of Chucky was pretty funny, but man, talk about garbage movies! Those titles are just horrendous, pathetic excuses to cash-in

    I still haven't even seen the Scream franchise in full (Bits of part one, none of part 2, and all of part 3), and probably should do so before Part 4, but my favourite of the slashers it ushered in: I Know What You Did Last Summer.

    Scream 2 is the best outta the series so far. The opening sequence, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Cici in the sorority house, Sydney and Hallie in the cop car and the surprise ending are great! I look forward to seeing Scream 4 but Syndey, Gale and Dewey better not die. LOL

    IKWYDLS, because Type O plays in the opening credits. Otherwise, not many redeeming qualities in a lot of these--although, they can be mindless fun.

    I'm unfamiliar w/ Cherry Falls, tho.

    I have a very love/hate relationship with the "New Wave" slasher films of the late 90's and early 2000', but here is how I would rank these from best to worst:

    Jason X
    Bride Of Chucky
    Halloween: Resurrection
    I Know What You Did Last Summer
    Urban Legend
    Valentine
    Halloween H20
    Cherry Falls
    I Still Know What You Did Last Summer
    Urban Legend: Final Cut

    Bride of Chucky is the only one of those I'd consider a solid movie. It's one of the best in the series.

    I went with H20. Although not one of the better sequels, it was still better then anything on that list (From what I've seen) and it was nice to see Jamie Lee going against Michael Myers one last time. The only other movies on that list that I don't mind are Urban Legend and Valentine. Again though, I haven't seen everything on their, and in the case of I Know... I haven't seen it in a long time, although I don't remember liking it too much. Resurrection and Jason X are just horrible! Jason X is the only Jason movie that I don't own, and I would rather watch just about any other slasher before it again.

    I Know What You Did Last Summer!! If that movie had been made in 1982, it would be considered a classic!
