Scream Franchise Ranked (Fan Vote)

Ghostface in Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group's "Scream."

Tonight is the night.

I remember going to the theater in 2000 to see Scream 3. I was so excited and it did not disappoint. I completely missed Scream 4’s theatrical release and Scream 5, I was more hesitant than excited. But now, there is some kind of fever pitch and I’ve never been more excited about a film, a horror film since 2004. That film was Dawn of the Dead.

So the way this ranking will go…It is based on your scores from out 5-star reviews on Facebook. You were asked to rate each Scream film between 1 and 5 stars. I know this may upset some of you, since Scream VI is now out, but I may do my personal ratings of the Scream Franchise at some point in the future. Tomorrow we are ranking the Scream movies on our show THS Up All Night and reviewing Scream VI.

So this is a basic list with your THS audience score. I went with percentages over average, why? Because of Rotten Tomatoes. Everyone looks to those scores these days, I’m coming up with a THS score, so we can have a proper ranking of franchises and the 250 greatest horror films of all-time.

On with the list!

5. Scream 3 (2000) 60%

4. Scream 5 (2022) 68%

3. Scream 2 (1997) 76%

2. Scream 4 (2011) 77%

1. Scream (1996) 84%

There you go. Based on the way our followers rated the Scream films. This is actually how I rank them. Scream 4 is just a really fun movie and I love Jill. Scream VI is a few hours away for me. I hope you see it soon and enjoy the movie.

I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
