Scream, 1996

Welcome back to another brand-spanking new episode of Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers! This week J. Blake and Dion Baia are heading back to high school and chatting about a genre classic (though it seems like it was out only yesterday), reliving senior year as they dissect the Wes Craven horror film Scream, from 1996!

The boys talk about the era in which this movie was released, discussing the popular idea that Scream revitalized a dying horror genre. They chat about other films of the 1990s that are similar in tone or that are as ‘meta;’ even bringing up the little known underground movie There’s Nothing Out There from 1991, which has some interesting similarities. So sit back and make sure you have your caller ID on, as Dion and Blake swing back to 1996, in this all new, exciting and hilarious edition of Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers!


As discussed in the podcast, check more out on the little known horror film There’s Nothing Out There 1991, which bares similarities to Scream.

    SO much of the popularity and subsequent rise of this film was because of the teenage rom-com culture that was happening in entertainment at the time. The Buffy film had come out a few years before, which starred Luke Perry from 90210. Following that was the rise of Party of Five and Dawson’s Creek, which was created by Kevin Williamson, and heavily promoted his interest in film and horror story telling. Scream was essentially the first “teenage rom-com horror movie,” and it was based on a Matthew Lillard/Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy!) universe that was already hugely popular.

    Hey guys,
    love the podcast, since stern has become unlistenable in the last few years I need something to fill my time at work. So when I find a good one I breeze through em pretty quick but I gotta tell ya I’ve never went through a library as fast as I did yours. You really know how to broadcast in a professional manner and the list of films from my youth makes me long for the good ol days of havin to rewind or be fined. If I could can I ask that at some point you guys do Soylent Green. When it comes to movies that fucked me up as a kid that’s at the top of the list. Plus chuck Heston and the history of that film is legendary.
    Keep up the good work and thanks again

      Hey Daniel, thank you so much for listening, and thank you even more for taking the time to message us. We’re so glad you’re enjoying our catalog and were able to get through it so quickly. Lol It certainly makes us doing the show that much more rewarding.
      I for one absolutely love Soylent Green, love Chuck Heston, and was just as terrified as you were of seeing that movie when I was little, understanding the implications within, and the horrifying ending. I’d personally love to do that on the podcast at some point- it certainly is a quintessential movie of the era and something I grew up watching as a child. I love Heston’s post-apocalyptic catalog. LOL So we will add it to the list of recommendations, and maybe one day tee it up and give it a shot. But thanks again for listening and we hope you keep enjoying what we put out. We have a very exciting summer coming up so we hope you find it as fun as we will recording them. Thanks. -Dion
