One of the cruelest pranks the world played on Scream fans is that the entire series of movies isn’t ever on Netflix at the same time. If more than one Scream movie is on the streaming giant, there’s always a key entry in the franchise missing. For instance, right now, you can watch Scream and Scream 4 on Netflix, and beginning on the first of July, you can always watch Scream 3. So close, yet so far. At any rate, we’ll take any of the Scream movies on Netflix that we can get.

Scream 3 takes place in the aftermath of the Windsor College Murders in Scream 2, which have sent Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) into hiding and working as a crisis counselor for a hotline. But as Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) work as advisors on the Stab 3 set in Hollywood, Sidney’s pulled back into the world of Ghostface as a new string of murders plagues the production of the film within a film, leading to a code only she can crack.

Following its release, Scream 3 received mixed to negative reception from critics and holds a mediocre 36% on Rotten Tomatoes. Some critics noted the third film relied too heavily on the horror movie tropes the franchised typically poked fun at. The film still managed to satiate fans, who drove the then-conclusion of the franchise to a $161.8 million worldwide gross. Next year, Scream 3 will turn 20, but you can celebrate early when it streams this July on Netflix.
