Special Notes:

Story Synopsis:
Already a cult classic, Scream tells the horrifying tale about a serial killer in a quite community. The emotionally disturbed Sidney (Neve Campbell) and a group of friends rally to unlock the deadly secret behind the double murder of a high school couple. A sizzling cast including Courteney Cox, Skeet Ulrich, David Arquette and Drew Barrymore

DVD Picture:
The non-anamorphic 2.35:1 DVD exhibits the same image quality as the previously released DVDs. Images are generally sharp with some scenes nicely detailed, though aliasing problems that shimmer throughout the film are bothersome, and pixelization is apparent. Colors are nicely balanced throughout. Though the previous discs earned higher scores, this DVD is not up to par with today
