The 50 Best Movie Dialogue Samples in Hip-Hop

46. Prophet Posse & Three 6 Mafia Sample Scream

Song: "Favorite Scary Movie" (1998)


"Favorite Scary Movie" sounds so low-budget you might wonder if it was recorded with a cheap Radio Shack tape recorder next to the TV set while the opening scene from director Wes Craven's Scream (1996) plays on. There lies the appeal, though. This homemade homage from the Three 6 Mafia camp is coming from a real horror fan's perspective, as if it were concocted after a long night of weed smokin', sizzurp sippin', and movie marathon watchin'. Rehashing bountiful sections of the phone call from the other Ghostface killer to Drew Barrymore's hapless victim (including that recognizable ringing from the cordless that grows more and more ominous the more you hear it), the song will have you either repeating the dialogue along with it or tempting you to reach into your DVD collection to peep the flick again.

Even as "teenager" Casey (Barrymore) attempts to be brave by standing up to the antagonizing voice on the other end ("Listen asshole!") she is cut off (figuratively...for now, at least) with a nasty retort of "No, you listen you little bitch! You hang up on me again and I'll gut you like a fish!" Unfortunately for the poor girl, that ain't a threat but a promise.
