Scream cast reveals their favorite scary movies

What’s your favorite scary movie? It’s almost impossible to read that line without hearing Roger L. Jackson’s iconic Ghostface voice. Who could ever forget the way Jackson delivered that line in the 1996 film Scream?

Unfortunately, this question is usually followed by stabbings rather than a spirited discussion of horror films. Luckily that’s what conventions are for.

During a Scream reunion panel at Emerald City Comic Con 2023, the cast were asked about their favorite horror films. It must have been refreshing to hear that question coming from fans, rather than a serial killer at the other end of the phone. “Paranormal Activity kind of changed it for me a little bit in terms of the way it was laid out and the way it was shot,” Skeet Ulrich said. “I loved The Exorcism of Emily Rose, it didn’t change horror, but those are two of my favorites.”

“I saw Blair Witch at its first screening midnight at Sundance,” Matthew Lillard recalled. “I will never forget that experience, it was incredible.”

Always the class clown, Jamie Kennedy gave an unexpected answer. “Showgirls…absolutely frightening,” Kennedy said.

“I don’t watch horror movies, I’m so sorry,” Neve Campbell confessed.

The next time Ghostface calls and asks for their favorite scary movie, the cast of Scream have the perfect answer in their pocket. Instead of stammering or shaking in fright, they simply have to say, ‘You would know if you had attended Emerald City Comic Con.’
