Scream stole the beginning!
I just watched When a Stranger Calls tonight and I could not believe how similar the beginning was to Scream. The baby sitter, the persistent phone calls, the playful-in-a-scary-sort-of-way dialogues and the final line that reveals the killer is nearby... closer... seeing her... in the house!
Scream is lighter and funnier, there's less tension, but Kevin Williamson definitely stole the idea from that film. Has it ever been acknowledged? It has to be! It's so blatant! I can't be the only one who noticed it. Scream is one of my favorite horror movies and I still love it, but its perfection just took a hit.
