Seeing as how I was unimpressed by Scream 4, I decided that for this Iconic Horror Scene I would talk about the first Scream film. This is the scene that started it all, and really brought horror back to the mainstream in the mid 90s. It starts with a girl home alone by herself making popcorn, getting ready to watch a movie. She is played by Drew Barrymore, who was the biggest star in the film, which makes you think that she is going to be okay.
This scene is what the Scream franchise should be known for. It is scary and suspenseful, and doesn't try to add elements of humor. While there are humorous parts of Scream, they know to keep them separate. Even though Scream might not be considered scary by todays standards, especially since you see the Ghostface mask every Halloween (I totally rocked it one year...), and it has been parodied in films like Scary Movie, but this movie came out when I was 6/7 years old and I remember being terrified!
