7: “Some Wes Carpenter Flick” – Scream


What’s your favorite scary movie? If you grew up in the 90s, there’s a good chance your answer is SCREAM. In Episode 7, WHEN WE WERE YOUNG plunges bone-deep into the millennial teen horror craze with the franchise that (re)started it all, the meta horror-comedy written by then-unknown Kevin Williamson and directed by shock maestro Wes Carpent- er, Craven.


So burn some popcorn, lace up your generic black boots, and prepare to see what your insides look like, because we’re about to discuss why the Scream movies are the ultimate slut shame and bicker about which one has the best Gale Weathers hairdo. (It’s definitely Scream 2.) Then, in an ironic “gotcha!” twist, you’ll discover that this is all just a podcast within a Stab movie within a Scream movie that Tori Spelling is listening to. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to go out to the backyard to investigate a strange noise. We’ll be right back!


WHEN WE WERE YOUNG is a podcast devoted to the most beloved pop culture of our formative years (roughly 1980-2000). Join us for a look back to the past with a critical eye on how these movies, songs, shows, and more hold up now.
