Scream 4

Scream 4
Starring: Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox
Rated: R
Release Date: April 15
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.

   They still do stupid things like let each other wander off alone when there is a psychotic killer on the loose but I never felt like I was laughing AT the movie but WITH it. Wes Craven has been involved in the faceless killer slasher-horror since its beginnings. He practically invented it! 

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 clich├ęs 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.

Wes is definitely a genius when it comes to horror movies.

I bet it was interesting/tense on set with Dave and Courtney together, considering he cheated on her. I'm surprised they agreed to do the movie.

I'd watch it, if onyl to be able to scream "do not go out alone!"

I loved this movie. The first three were great and this one didn't disappoint. Like you mentioned, I was laughing with it from the first two fake trailers to the ending. Amazing!

I'm a big wuss and hate horror movies but I have watched the first three Scream movies. I probably won't watch it in theatres but my sister will make me watch it with her when it comes out on Blueray.

I loved this, especially how it really did come back to Scream 1. Wes really knows what he's doing.

This sounds like a fun one. I don't actually watch scary movies tho.. hee hee... *hides under the covers*

I love this series and can't wait to see this one! :)

Unknown said...

I agree. It was a totally awesome movie. I enjoyed it more than the other three. Wes does a great job scaring us through suspense.

I don't think I'll be watching this. I really never got this type of humor.

Lola said...

I was really looking forward to watching this with my boyfriend, and then we broke up. I really want to see it still. Great review. Now I just have to find someone who'll watch it with me!

I like scary movies, but have just never understood the appeal of the Scream franchise (I've only seen the first one and didn't care for it).
I'm glad you enjoyed it, even if its not my kind of movie. :)
