What’s your favorite scary movie? Well, if you like your scares with a side of snark, then you’re probably a Scream fan. Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven’s slasher flick was both an homage to classic slice-and-dice fare like Halloween and Friday the 13th and a terrifying thriller in its own right. The continuations that came after, Scream 2 and Scream 3, followed in the original’s footsteps — they included plenty of wry commentary about horror movie sequels even as they contributed to the franchise’s own bloody mythology. Plenty of self-aware scary movies — and Scary Movies — cropped up in the post-Scream years, but none were as fresh or as innovative as Williamson and Craven’s magnum opus.
Now the saga continues as Scream 4 enters theaters. But if you’re nostalgic for Ghostface killers past, the original trilogy is now out on Blu-ray — and EW has ten copies of the set to give away to lucky readers. The discs are courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment and will be available while supplies last.
