Overview

Someone's taken their love of Scream one step too far... and written a book about it!

Having earned the respect and accolades of critics and audiences, generated more than half a billion dollars in revenue, and inspired a gaggle of imitators, it's safe to say Scream is millions of people's favorite scary movie. While the Scream films have scared and entertained moviegoers worldwide, they've also invited us to closer examine the movies we watch: to deconstruct them. This book aims to do just that.

Scream Deconstructed: An Unauthorized Analysis puts all four Scream movies under the knife to examine the meaning, themes and philosophy of the movie series that brought horror back from the dead by breaking all the rules. Take a close look into the heart of this pop culture phenomenon and what its characters - including Sidney, Gale, Dewey, and each film's killer - represent. Find out what reality, film, fantasy, and sex have to do with it all. Scream Deconstructed is sure to please any fan of Scream, horror, or film in general.

    Perfect for Scream fans and Movie Lovers

    I throughly enjoyed Scream Deconstructed. It thoughtfully deconstructs each film (including the 4th) in a manner both approachable and thought-provoking. Surprisingly well-written and enjoyable. Highly recommended!
