From Amazon.co.uk

When Randy the video geek rattles off the rules of surviving a horror movie in Wes Craven's Scream, he speaks for a generation of filmgoers who are all too aware of slasher-movie clichés. Playfully scripted by Kevin Williamson with a self-aware wink and more than a few nods to its grandfathers (from Psycho to Halloween to the Friday the 13th dynasty), Scream skewers teen horror conventions with loving reverence while re-creating them in a modern, movie-savvy context. And so goes the series, which continues the satirical spoofing by tackling (what else?) sequels while sustaining its own self-contained mythology. Catty reporter Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) turns grisly murders into lurid best-sellers, a cult of killer wannabes continues to hunt spunky psycho-survivor Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell) for their 15 minutes of fame, and a cheesy movie series (Stab) develops within the movie series.

Scream remains the high point of the series--a fresh take on a genre long since collapsed into routine, but Scream 2 spoofs itself wittily ("Why would anyone want to do that? Sequels suck!" opines college film student Randy), and delights with more elaborate set-pieces and all-new rules for surviving a horror movie sequel. The endangered veterans of the original film reunite one last time for Scream 3, which plays out on the movie set of Stab 3 (it's a trilogy within a trilogy!). With Williamson gone, replacement screenwriter Ehran Kruger tries to mine the formula one more time. It's a little tired by now, and pale imitations (Urban Legend, I Know What You Did Last Summer) have further drained the zeitgeist, but the film bubbles with bright humour and director Craven is stylistically at the top of his game. As a trilogy, it remains both the most consistently entertaining and self-aware horror series ever made. --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com

Product Description

Wes Craven's smash hit horror trilogy is a post-modern take on the slasher cycle of the late Seventies and early Eighties, which included the director's own 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'. In 'Scream' (1996), a psychotic freak with a love of horror flicks murders teenager Casey Becker (Drew Barrymore) in the small American town of Woodsboro. The killer then begins terrorising Casey's classmate, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), whose mother was murdered a year earlier. When Sidney encounters the stalker and escapes, her boyfriend Billy (Skeet Ulrich) is arrested. However, the phone calls and killings continue. The sequel, 'Scream 2' (1997), takes place a year on from the events of the first film. Survivors Sidney Prescott and Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy) are now students at the same college. A movie based on the Woodsboro murders, 'Stab', sparks off a series of copycat killings, and soon the nightmare is beginning all over again. While Sidney wonders who she can really trust, Randy teams up with former police deputy Dewey (David Arquette), still recovering from the effects of his stabbing the first time round, to work out the rules of a real-life horror sequel. One thing's for sure: the body count has to be higher. Also back on the scene are reporter Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox Arquette), who has successfully published her own account of the original killings - sacrificing her romance with Dewey in the process - and Cotton Weary (Liev Schreiber), the man Sidney had wrongfully imprisoned for her mother's murder. The third and final instalment is 'Scream 3' (2000). When talk show host Cotton Weary - the man once wrongly suspected of carrying out the first of the notorious Woodsboro killings - is himself murdered by a masked figure, plenty of free publicity is provided for 'Stab 3 - Return to Woodsboro', the third in a series of films based around the real-life events. When two of the film's cast are also murdered production is called to a halt, and the three remaining Woodsboro survivors - recluse Sidney Prescott, television reporter Gale Weathers and fomer police deputy Dewey Riley - join forces to find the killer.

This boxed set is a definite must buy! The inside art work alone is impressive. All three films are fantastic, and they all have their own special, edge of your seat moments that wont be forgotten in a hurry. The films are extremely smart and scary and all manage to bend round each other so the killers all have something to do with each other.
Scream - An urbanised, local town is the victim of gruesome murders all down to one (or two?) killer/s wearing a scary ghost mask and hood. This film is much more original than the others, and doesn't require the need for any car chases, or huge explosions like in the other two. This one is extremely clever and gory which basically started the francise off. The scene to look out for is the first scene, where Drew Barrymore falls victim to the killers terrifying pranks and haunting phonecalls. One not to watch alone!
Scream 2 - A much bigger scale. This tells the tale of Sidney coming to terms with two recent murders of a couple attending her college. Despite some excellent scenes (the opening, the killer car chase) You cant help but think that this is the usual killer chases young girl sort of film. This is more of a cash in on the original and has an extremely disappointing ending. It has its moments, but isnt as good as the original.
Scream 3 - This final installment is a breathe of fresh air. It is set in big Hollywood on the set of Stab 3. This movie concentrates much more on the comedy, but still manages to be scary and sexy. When u compare this to the original, its quite a shock to see how much the movie has changed. The actors have matured and it's scenes are dealt with on a much bigger scale.
Basically all three films are brilliant. They come in a excellent value for money package that has some amazing extras. This is also ... cheaper than in the shops, which makes it a compulsary buy. You'd be stupid not to get this action packed horror package!

5.0 out of 5 stars The only way to Scream 14 Mar 2003
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
The Scream trilogy brought fresh new blood (in copious amounts) to the horror film genre. Mixing humor, pop culture, and horror, the original Scream laid the foundation for a series that carried a lot of energy through two sequels. Scream 2 was something of a step backwards from the first movie, but Scream 3 marked a turn back in the right direction. Fortunately, Wes Craven knew when to stop, as Scream 3 evidenced some decline in the novelty of the concept, leaving us with three movies we can appreciate over and over again throughout the coming years. The only problem I have with Scream 3 is the fact that it looked and sounded like a movie, whereas the original had enough of a hold on reality to make the experience seem like something at least remotely plausible in the everyday world.
... Scream 3 is not great but it is a lot of fun. The absence of writer Kevin Williamson is noticeable in a script that tries too hard and ends up overreaching. The attempt to complete the circle and redefine our understanding of the first movie in particular is a little off the mark. Making us rethink what we thought we knew is one thing; suddenly dropping new facts and heretofore unknown elements into the mix poses a problem for me. I really don't understand why Maureen's supposed ghost is called upon here, nor do I find complete satisfaction with the drawn-out explanation of everything in the end. Much of the action in this final chapter centers on the set of Stab 3, the third movie based upon Gayle Weathers' account of the original Woodsboro murders haunting Sidney Prescott. I do like the concept of the horror movie within the horror movie, and having a Stab 3 actor play each of our Scream characters is a lot of fun and provides for some of the film's funnier moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 and 2 are awesome.. 3 is a bit crappy though . 30 Oct 2003
The scream trilogy revived horror in the 90's . It is basically a huge homage to others such as Friday 13th and Halloween .
Scream 1 is the brilliant and one of my fave horror movies . A killer is killing people in the small town of woodsboro . The killer seems to be after one girl in particular , Sidney Prescott . All leading to a thrilling climax in a party in a farmhouse . 5 stars .
Scream 2 - If your looking for a scare fest your not really gonna find this very good . However as a movie i think this is extremely entertaining and i like it better than the original . More deaths , more blood . Sadly it kills off my favourite character Randy . :( . It sees Sidney and the survivors from Scream in college but not safe from danger . I think that it's impossible to guess who the killer/s is . 5 stars .
Scream 3 - I really don't like this film much . The cameo from Randy is cool and the intro is kinda suspenseful . It just seems cheesey . I don't like the plot , setting or characters . Set on the st of Stab 3 , a movie based on the murders of previous films killings start . 2 stars .

5.0 out of 5 stars Value for money excellent features 5 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This is a fantastic box set a must for all horror fans. I was egally waiting for this box set and was not dissapointed, each DVD has an array of features and build up on each one. The first DVD SCREAM has 4 features and the best must be the behind the scenes documentary with Drew Barrymore. The second DVD SCREAM 2 had more features and the best ones were the outtakes, great to see some happy moments as the films are so intense. The third DVD SCREAM 3 has more fetures than the others and are really good, the best ones are again the outtakes but the alternative ending, best viewed with audio commentary.
This is a fantastic set and worth every penny, I do have some advice. If you have not seen any of the films them watch them first and don't play with the features as lots of the audio commantary will spoil the endings.
The only one bad thing with these films are, once you have seen them once and you know the endings it makes it less special. However when you watch them again you can look out for the clues and subtle hints. And with the audio commentary on the DVDS it gives you a better understanding from the director.
