Scream

CBS | 9:00 pm

Veteran horror director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson created a new film genre with this 1996 thriller: the horror parody. But we're not talking over-the-top parody in the "Naked Gun" vein; this is a real horror movie with a sly wink toward the conventions of the genre, populated by characters who have seen enough slasher films to know all the tricks. But if they're so smart, why are so many of them getting killed? Neve Campbell stars.
