Do you like scary movies? That question has been haunting fans of the “Scream” movie franchise for 25 years.

Incredible as it is that a quarter-century has gone by since the first Scream debuted in 1996, you can celebrate the classic this weekend at a theater near you.

This Oct. 10-11, at 7 p.m.,  at the most spooky month of the year Fathom Events will throw a nationwide celebration of this horror/thriller.

Most are familiar with the main character, the killer known as Ghostface, a mysterious person in black clothing and white and black  “screaming mask” with a knife. Directed by Wes Craven, the movie has the classic scenario: a small town where several random kills have happened and soon enough a group of young friends who find themselves in a game “cat and mouse” and become a new target of a serial killer. 

“When it comes to suspenseful horror films of the ‘90s, ‘Scream’ revitalized the genre and created a global franchise,” said Tom Lucas, Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations. “Film fans should get ready and buckle up for a fiendishly clever ride this Halloween season at their local theater!”

The quality of movies has risen since 1996, so Paramount Home Entertainment will improve it by Oct. 19 and for the first time fans can watch a released version in 4K Ultra HD.

For big fans of horror movies. This time after the film, actors who featured in the scenes of “Scream”, Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures will present vintage interviews with Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and others.
