Critically Acclaimed #48: The 'Scream' Movies

Wes Craven's "Scream" revitalized the entire horror industry in the late 1990s, returning the genre to its box office glory, earning Craven some of the best reviews of his career, and spawning a four film franchise (and tons of imitators). 

It's a series of slasher films about people who know all about slasher films, and it's not just a funny joke; the "Scream" movies are rich in character and subtext and speak volumes about the genre and the people who both make and inhabit these popular stories.

How do the "Scream" movies hold up? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into the whole series on this week's Critically Acclaimed! They also review the new releases "Venom" and "The Hate U Give!"
