Agree.

I think if I have any ill will towards it, it is because of all the insufferably lame copycat films that came after that misunderstood what Scream was doing. Scream was great, but it ruined horror (of course it also saved it from direct-to-DVD oblivion).

It is one of the more perfect horror films of it's time and in the context of what was happening then in entertainment and culturally, pretty brilliant.
