SCREAM
1996, Paramount, 111 min, USA, Dir: Wes Craven

Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson re-invented and revitalized the slasher genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. A Saturn and MTV Movie Award winner that spawned 3 big-screen sequels and a TV series, the box office hit provides both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts - but the victims aren't always the ones you'd expect. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Drew Barrymore are among the stars contending with the lethal Ghostface.

2007, Lionsgate, 117 min, USA, Dir: James Mangold

Christian Bale plays a wounded Civil War vet who sees a chance at prosperity in thief Russell Crowe, for whom Bale hopes to collect a reward when he delivers him to the prison train of the film’s title. In director James Mangold’s riveting remake of the 1957 classic, Bale and Crowe engage in a compelling battle of wits and guns that is both thoughtful character study and kinetic action film.
