The horror genre was bleeding out before Scream came along. The franchises were fatigued and if a film wasn’t going straight to video, its box office was pretty dismal. Kevin Williamson’s slasher/mystery breathed new life with its self-aware characters spewing hip dialogue while referencing the classics. And Drew Barrymore’s wig is more horrorfying than Jamie Lee Curtis’ Halloween II wig.
Scream was filmed in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Glen Ellen and Tomales, CA
Unfortunately the houses were located on farms or vineyards so getting up close was not possible. I did my best from the road.
