The sleepy little town of Woodsboro just woke up screaming. There’s a killer in their midst who’s seen a few too many scary movies. Suddenly, nobody is safe, as the psychopath stalks victims, taunts them with trivia questions, then rips them to bloody shreds. It could be anybody… Sidney, the quiet high school beauty with an ugly past… Billy, her faithful boyfriend with a frustrated sex life… Tatum, her cute best friend with a answer for everything… Casey, the lovely blonde who knows her thrillers… Geeky Randy, the scary movie fanatic… Stuart, the wild partier… Gale, the overeager TV reporter… even Dewey, the syrupy-sweet police officer. The only hope is to stay one step ahead of this crazed slasher–know your trivia. The clues are there; are you good enought to see them?

  1. Clueless is easily one of the most quotable high school movies of all time – up there with Mean Girls, and the Breakfast Club (which I can’t believe wasn’t on this list!)

  2. Talk about a trip back in time! Love all of these movies. Oh, and completely agree on The Breakfast Club. One of my all time faves. Big fan of the Brat Pack. 😉

  3. I remember putting off Heathers off for so long because of the cover. It looked like another teenage rom-com. So glad I finally watched it. Clueless was my go to movie for a very long time, love that movie!
    I’ve never been a fan of Ferris Bueller though.
