Summary: I think fans of the original Scream will like this one - certainly better than the third entry. I has a lot of throwbacks to the original (and the opening is hilarious). The mix of old characters and new is appreciated and the story about how people get famous in a digital age is all too true in so many cases. Worth a watch for fans of the Scream franchise or horror in general.
Excerpt: Remember that first phone call to a teenage Drew Barrymore that started it all? Even those who have never seen a single Scream film know the famous five word question that became a staple of teens in the 90's, Horror geeks, and popculture alike. Fastforward two sequels, and fifteen years later, and here we are. Call it a reboot, ot a plain old sequel. Scream 4 is a solid sequel, worthy of its place in the series.
Excerpt: I don't see all the love for this. I think its a mediocre Blu-Ray release. I love the Extras and Audio, but the Blu-Ray transfer is very mediocre. Everybody buys Blu-Rays for the HD, and these movie really lacks HD, but everyone loves the transfer! I really don't get it.
Summary: Scream 4 does exactly what is expected, roll the first three movie together, add a twist (although hardly a surprise when it does happen) and let the body count rise. Worth a watch if you enjoyed the first three.
Summary: When it was first released in 1996, the original 'Scream' was an intelligent, and fun horror film that gave the slasher genre a big boost of much needed energy. 'Scream 2' was an entertaining sequel that cleverly built upon what the original film started. 'Scream 3', although not as bad as some people say, was admittedly a bit of a let down.
