Battle of Movie Moments: Opening of Scream vs. When I Was On Top of You

Your Champion
Opening of Scream (Scream)


Your Challenger
When I Was On Top of You (Cannibal: The Musical)

The Case for Opening of Scream (3):
Few movies have so effortlessly revitalized an entire genre the way Scream did back in 1996, and a major factor in that success was the opening of the film:  The now-iconic question 'What's your favorite scary movie?' followed by the brutal murder of the (at the time) biggest star in the film - Drew Barrymore.  By the time Casey's mother walked out the door, moviegoers knew they were in for a treat - one of the best slasher films ever made.
The Case for When I Was On Top of You:
Sometimes a man loves a horse so much, he sings a song about it.  And maybe, if you have a dirty mind, the song reads as being about something else entirely.  Shame on you for thinking that!

Which do you pick?
Opening of Scream
When I Was On Top of You
