Do you like scary movies? Because the horror genre is having a serious resurgence right now due to tantalizing genre films like “It Follows” and “The Babadook,” and of course MTV’s own new slasher series “Scream,” based off the classic horror franchise of the ’90s.
In fact, the slasher genre owes a lot to “Scream,” Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven’s 1996 hit. The gory R-rated horror film was groundbreaking at the time. It was a slasher flick that successfully crossed over into the mainstream, spawning three sequels and one of the most iconic killers in movie history. Without the success of “Scream,” the horror genre wouldn’t be much of a thing these days (sorry, Babadook).
