By the late 90s, horror was a tired genre - think remakes of old franchises going straight to VHS, and the same old scares.In 1996, Wes Craven, master of the form and director of hits such as The Hills Have Eyes, Nightmare on Elm Street and The People Under The Stairs reinvented the horror genre with Scream - ruining a thousand teen sleepovers and launching a small industry in tacky plastic halloween masks in the process. With Scream - Craven scared the living hell out of a whole new generation and revitalised the scary movie industry, with a smart and darkly comic take on the slasher movie. Scream was quickly followed by Scream 2, the two films shot back to back with the same cast of 90s stars - and many critics argued Scream 2 was the better and scarier film.
