Best Opening Scene

Will anything ever compare to Drew Barrymore dying in the first scene of the 1996 movie after moviegoers were led to believe she was a main character? This is still the best opening scene of the franchise.

Coolest Supporting Victims

Sure, Jada Pinkett Smith was killed at the start of Scream 2, but her cameo remains one of the best. Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar also got a memorable death in the sequel.

Most Meta Moment

A secret half-brother?! That was the biggest plot twist of Scream 3. Plus, the making of Stab kept us all wondering who would play us in the movie version of our own lives.

Killer Twist

Emma Roberts looked innocent at the beginning of Scream 4, but that didn't last long. Just remember it's not always the boyfriend who's the killer.
