15 things you (probably) didn't know about Scream

Ridicule it if you may but without Scream, horror would probably not be much of a thing these days.

The early 90s saw the genre die an embarrassingly public death with one DTV turkey after another, only for Wes Craven's 1996 smash to bring it back to life with a refreshingly sly tone to support a steady stream of scares.

With another three films helping to complete the much-rewatched franchise, we decided to go back to the beginning to uncover the things you (probably) didn't know about the original Scream.
