With the 25th anniversary screening of the original Scream happening tomorrow (so excited to actually see it in theaters and then see the exclusive debut of the Scream 2022 trailer!) I figured this was the perfect time to read this one. Found it thanks to a friend on Instagram and ordered it immediately

With 30 interviews from cast and crew members, It All Began with a Scream provides readers with an unauthorized look at the franchise.
