Below is the synopsis of "Scream," per IMDB. 

A year after the murder of her mother, a teenage girl is terrorized by a new killer, who targets the girl and her friends by using horror films as part of a deadly game.

"Scream" reinvented the slasher genre in the '90s. Besides nuanced slashers like "Candyman" and "New Nightmare"—the sub-genre suffered in the early '90s. But Wes Craven caught on to something—he and Kevin made a more nuanced film that was self-aware and meta.

Below is the synopsis of "I Know What You Did Last Summer," per IMDB. 

After a nasty accident, four friends begin to drift apart. One year later Julie James gets a anonymous message and then a slicker wearing, hook wielding killer begins to rip apart her life.

"I Know What You Did Last Summer" took a different approach than other slasher horror flicks. The film's killer—now called the Fisherman—decided to toy with the teenagers who hit with their car before offing them. It's a more entertaining take on revenge slasher horror—unlike the revenge stories from the early '80s.

Watch the iconic opening scene from the film below.
