Seeing the New Scream Movie!

Obsessed much? Even Ghostface looks like he wants me to buzz off.

Needless to say based on my Photoshop work featured above, I was BEYOND excited to see the new Scream film!!!! I’d actually been counting down the days! (Not joking…I literally have been, for months.)

I saw the first Scream film at age 9 and it’s a franchise I grew up with. Being 34 now, it’s surreal to think of how much time has passed since the first film came out in 1996!

Before I get into my thoughts about the new film, here’s the outfit I wore to go see it! I was in full Ghostface fan girl gear:

Now for the movie!!!!!!!! I will not discuss too much because this film is so new and I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who plans to see it. But let me just say:

The movie EXCEEDED my expectations, and played with my emotions more than I imagined it ever would. It really kept me on my toes through the end, and there were many times I jumped in my seat, or my mouth was just hanging open from shock. I FELT SO MUCH DURING THIS FREAKING FILM!!! Loved it!

Lastly, can I just say, I was OVER THE MOON WITH JOY from the fact that Ghostface utters the words, “Hello, Samantha” in this movie. Can I just fan girl over that for a moment?!?!?!?!!?!? Or maybe for the rest of my lifetime? Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! *ear-splitting squeal ensues*

That’s about it, folks! See ya next time!! I’m going to go bask in the glow of how happy I am having seen this movie. ๐Ÿ’–

It’s a Scream, Baby!

I saw Scream the year it came out in 1996, and I was 9 years old. Ironically, my babysitter would play the movie A LOT, so that’s how I first saw the film.

Was it scary to me as a child??!! Of course! I’m actually not a scary movie person at all; I just can’t handle that genre, typically. However, since I saw Scream as a kid so many times and it’s such a classically 90’s film, I still enjoy the movie to this day because of the nostalgia factor, and the fact that it still scares me even at 33 years old! (And I admit, I have always loved Ghostface’s costume!)

My favorite character is Stu, played by Matthew Lillard. He is outrageously hilarious throughout the film and that’s a huge reason why I enjoy it!!! Honestly, the humor is a big win in this movie, and then just as swiftly as it will make me laugh, it will make me clamp my hand over my mouth in fear and insist I turn on every light on my way to my room to go to sleep once the movie’s over.

As an homage to this horror film that is forever etched into my childhood memory, I purchased a Ghostface shirt on Etsy!!! Paired with the hair clips, it’s a total 90’s throwback. And to truly capture the nostalgia, I watched the movie on the original VHS, as I still own an old VHS player!

I was watching the movie and I had to stop and pause it on a particular scene where two girls are gossiping about Sidney (Neve Campbell) in the high school bathroom. WAIT A SECOND, I thought. GIRL, I HAVE THOSE SAME HAIR CLIPS!!! I bought them at Sally Beauty many years ago.

I was ecstatic. That gave me the idea to wear them with my outfit, as it is subtly Scream! I added butterfly clips to the mix for extra flair. Because there’s something so innocently nostalgic about the colorful hair clips of the 90’s. Scream is also nostalgic, even if it’s a not-so-innocent scary movie. Ghostface is my one and only favorite scary dude, and for that, I salute him.

So cheers to the nostalgic things that transport us back to a different time, whether it be a movie or a hair clip!

As Stu would say, “It’s a scream, baby!” ๐Ÿ’œ

See ya next time!!!
