Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is a classic Halloween film, Scream.
Scream came out in 1996 and re-launched America's love of being scared at the movies. Scream stars Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, a high school senior who is on the verge of experiencing the anniversary of her mothers brutal murder. Her father has to leave town for business but she's left in good hands with her best friend Tatum (Rose McGowan) and her boyfriend Billy (Skeet Ulrich). Unfortunately, tragedy and terror strike their town when two teens are brutally murdered by a mysterious ghost face killer. 
Sidney will have to face old demons and possibly new ones, while the town goes on lockdown until this ghost face killer is found. A mandatory curfew has students getting out early and without some parental guidance they decide to celebrate with throwing a party and begin to debate the "rules" to scary movies. Of course the party is being held by her boyfriend's best friend so Sidney and Tatum have to attend. Sidney is slightly on edge but is trying to be strong during this reminder of her mom's death.

Since tragedy has struck this town before the news media jumps on the town and brings along the famous face of news anchor Gail Weathers (Courtney Cox) to cover the story. Gail has been to this town before and has covered Sidney and her mother's death. Neither really wish to see each other again but Gail always wants the story. If Gail isn't careful she'll   she'll become the story as well.

Will Sidney get through this anniversary of her mothers death? Will the town survive more tragedy? Watch this classic to find out. There is now 4 Scream movies in total.
