Horror Movies of the 90s: Part One

Written by Emily Rokke

The horror movies of the 90s were awesome because they were fun and timely. They lacked that truly scary real life horror but had that comedic and entertaining movie tweak. Here are two of the best. 

Scream

The Scream series was fun, scary, and so good it turned into a trilogy. Then a fourth movie came out and a spin-off show, that was different from the movies. Scream was a traditional slasher film turned self-aware and comedic, while still a slasher flick. Sydney is under attack by “ghost face” who terrorizes her and her friends. He kills along the way and as you can see by the sequels, his role is ever changing. Scream was one of the high grossing films of 1996 and is  the highest grossing slasher film in the world. Everybody loves it.

I Know What You Did Last Summer

I Know What You Did Last Summer was similar to Scream with its style and cast of good-looking people. The movie had a second and third come out, making it a trilogy as well. The movie starts with an accident that four kids cause and then vow to keep secret. A year later, the kids start getting pulled back together with threatening letters and the return of their big secret. This movie is noted along with Scream as the new type of comedic slashers of the 90s.

These two movies from the 90s are horror movies but in a very different and new way as compared to the 60s, 70s, or 80s. They have a comedic side and almost make fun of themselves all while being stuck in the same situations they mock.

For more awesome and different horror movies of the 90s, watch for article two to come out. What’s your favorite 90s horror flick?
