Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill and her Aunt Kate. Unfortunately, Sidney's appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.It's been 11 years since the third installation of the original Scream Trilogy and the time has come for the inevitable "Reboot". I will be honest here, this may be the best reboot of a horror series. EVER.
Once again directed by horror master Wes Craven(A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes, and yes the ORIGINALS) we're taken back to the town of Woodsboro where the anniversary of the killings that happened 10 years ago is mostly a reason to party than to mourn.
You get exactly what you'd expect from a movie like Scream 4 and so much more. Their are stupid bimbos, cut phone lines, questionable judgement, but also good acting, great twists, and humor. Not the "WOW, this movie is REALLY bad!" kind, but genuine, smart humor.
What made Scream 4 work is that it realized what made the first one so great. It didn't take itself too seriously. The characters all argue about "The Rules" of horror movies with lines like "The only cop that never gets killed is Bruce Willis!"
|He could have fake boobs, long blonde hair, the IQ of a parakeet, always wear 6 inch heels and he still wouldn't die.|
|I am going to terrify you, make you question every noise you hear when you're alone, and you'll never answer a call from a blocked number again. And your going to pay me money to do it.|
He of all people would know what the clichés are yet instead of trying to avoid them, he embraces them and incorporates them in a way the makes for the best horror film I've seen in years.
