Joan Crawford in Possessed (1931)
82 years later and it’s still relevant
Maureen finally gets it: the killer brandishes a knife and skewers her, and continues to do so even as she futilely tries to get away. The rowdy crowd doesn’t notice because they’re too busy raving as the on-screen Casey Becker is getting similarly filleted. In a last, desperate bid to get everyone’s attention, Maureen heads to the front of the theater and stumbles in front of the screen, the image from the projector overlaying her bloody, wounded body. Maureen lets out a blood-curdling scream that finally has the crowd pausing, trying to understand the sight before them.
As much as it gleefully bathes in its own meta-horror, the Screamseries never explicitly breaks the fourth wall, but it’s interesting to think that in a subtle way it does here. While Maureen is standing in front of the screen, for a moment the camera switches to her perspective: the audience of the theater watching her, the near-blinding brightness of the projector light obscuring some of her vision. If someone from within the movie could somehow look through the screen, this view of the audience would be exactly what they would see.
The next shot faces Maureen as she sobs. Obviously she’s going through a harrowing experience, but it’s not a cry of terror or pain she’s letting out here, it’s a mournful wail, a lament at having realized the horrible truth: she in fact is in a horror movie, and that the reason she’s dying is because a crowd of people have paid money in order to be entertained by watching her get killed. In-movie, it’s a pseud hallucinatory rationalization of a dying person, but it’s ironically the unvarnished truth. Maureen is the only character, including Randy, who ever understands that the presence of the killers has turned reality into a horror film, not just metaphorically, but in literal terms.
