Ghostface (Scream) (2/6)

Scream was the horror film that really put the horror genre back on the map in the 1990s following the downturn in popularity for traditionally violent works of horror that had been so dominant in the 1980s. Combining elements of the slasher genre with a self-satirising and black comedy aspect that both mocks itself and the horror genre on the whole, the gripping ‘whodunit’ nature is what makes Scream such a cult classic. ‘Ghostface’ plays as the film’s chief antagonist, terrorising the local town with gruesome murders and constantly pursuing the lead heroine, Sidney.
