Plot: A killer known as Ghostface begins killing off teenagers, and as the body count begins rising, one girl and her friends find themselves contemplating the "Rules" of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

So I'm just now getting around to watching this flick.  I haven't been all that interested in seeing it.  When it came out it looked like another dumb teen horror movie.  OK, so I was wrong.  It's actually pretty good.  I was pleasantly surprised.  One thing I loved was that Craven and writer Williamson did a great job at setting up everyone as the potential killer. It had me guessing all the way to the end and boy was I surprised.  Another great thing was the Ghostface mask and simple outfit.  Cool shit.  What wasn't cool was the lack of nudity.  Sigh.
