The Scream franchise breathed new life into the quickly dying 'slasher' genre of film in 1996, and has been a fan favorite ever since. Here's my list of the top 10 kills from the Scream series, and I think it goes without saying - Spoiler Alert!

10: Kirby Reed (Scream 4)

9: Tom Prinze (Scream 3)

8: Kate Roberts (Scream 4)

7: Phil Stevens (Scream 2)

6: Maureen Evans (Scream 2)

5: Randy Meeks (Scream 2)

4: Olivia Morris (Scream 4)

3: Tatum Riley (Scream)

Although she originally thought it was all a joke, Tatum was able to give 'ghostface' a run for his money! Saying this, she had the stupidity to try and fit through the cat flap instead of attacking him when he was down! Tatum is lifted up by the garage door, having her neck broken when she reached the top.

2: Cici Cooper (Scream 2)

Ugh. Why is it that girls in slasher flicks always run up the stairs? I mean seriously, it's a death wish.

Fun fact: When Cici is thrown off the balcony, we very briefly see a crew members head pop up over the side! Watch the video, and see if you can spot him!

1: Casey Becker (Scream)

The first kill of the series, and in my opinion, the best! Never would we expect to have a star like Drew Barrymore killed off in the first 10 minutes of a film, so Wes Craven really set the bar for opening scenes here!

It's nerve wracking because we see Casey helpless and trying to scream for help to her parents who were just around the corner! I would honestly list this scene as one of, if not the best, movie opening scenes I've ever seen as it certainly gets the audience's attention.

Agree with my list, or are you infuriated by my choices? Tell me in the comments below!
