It was on this day in 1996 that Scream premiered.
Wes Craven gloriously returned to the genre by playing upon its tropes, even killing Drew Barrymore in the opener, a la Janet Leigh in Psycho.
The movie spawned sequel upon sequel. Scream 3 (2000) even gave us this brilliance:
Also on this day in 1978, Invasion of the Body Snatchers premiered.
Donald Sutherland stars in this remake of the 1958 classic as a health inspector who realizes people are being taken over by aliens. The movie also has Jeff Goldblum, Leonard Nimoy, and Veronica Cartwright.
And Dog Man. Yeesh.
Tomorrow: The Black Hole.
