We're about half way through the Underrated Series and have finally reached one of the big genres. I'm expecting lots…
New Decade. New Rules.
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.
Great start for the new trilogy! Twist upon twist, crisp wit and one hellacious scene involving the girl next door!
Timely material reflecting the times we live in!
Overall I had one heck of a good time! Bring on Scream 5!
Oh my god, they like totally reinvented and modernised the franchise 'cause they added webcams and blogs and stuff!
I had 3 films ready to watch this night on my WD Play box, but it turned out all 3 had problems displaying subtitles! Oh well. On TV was Scream 4 which I'd seen before, but was better than anything else that freeview was offering. Like the original, this was directed by Wes Craven and starred Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell.
The story - Sidney Prescott is now an author and has just released her new self-help book. She returns to her home town of Woodsboro after a ten year absence in order to promote her book as part of the book tour. Unfortunately her return coincides with the return of ghostface. Sidney teams up with her old…
Aw man I don't know why this film is getting slated, it's a whole lot of fun! After Scream 3 I was all "I hope they never make another one" because I thought it was done to death, but actually Scream 4 was REALLY GOOD, better than 3, possibly better than 2 (I know a bunch of people are really into 2 but I don't get it?)!
This basically had everything I wanted from a Scream film, and I fucking love Sidney. She's like a goddamn superhero.
Wes Craven returns to form after his dreadful 'My Soul To Take'. Scream 4 contains all of the wonderful wit and intelligence from his previous (good) films, and delivers a fresh but traditional horror flick. It's been many a few years since I've seen the previous Scream films, so others might predict the twist and turns better than I did. But still, Scream 4 is one of the most entertaining horror films of previous years, and is full of sarcastic and self-referential humour.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Hoop-Tober Challenge (For Beginners) Film #19
"Surprise, bitch. I bet you thought you'd seen the last of me."
Jump scares. Ghostface. Extensive meta-jokes. Self-referential writing. Plot twist. More jump scares! More meta-jokes! Peeping tom and Alison Brie. That's about it.
Decent though. Would have given it 3 and a half or maybe four stars back in the year two thousand and eleven.
After the crap storm that is Scream 3, Wes Craven put the brakes on his beloved horror franchise. Until the popular trend of remaking horror movie classics and making them either unique and amazing like 80's Thing, Evil Dead and Dawn of the Dead; or really unoriginal and crappy like The Thing, The Fog, The Haunting and countless others. Scream 4, while isn't as bad as most is in the middle franchise wise. Better than Scream 3, somewhat better than Scream 2, but not as good as Scream. Scream 4 takes a grittier approach that I think the franchise needed. The kills are more brutal, the movie made me jump more than once. The opening is surprisingly scary, probably the…
Better than Scream 2 and Scream 3, at least
The last installment reinvented the whole thing in a positive way, the best since the original scream, the script is sharp, the acting is great, found a balanced way to mock it's genre, the references to the own franchise are unbelievable, also they added some very interesting plot twists to the mix which actually made it sound fresh, I heard they're planning on a new trilogy but I honestly hope they don't, this movie would be a great way to go out with a bang.
Για κάποιο αδιευκρίνιστο λόγο έχω δει και τα τρία πρώτα Scream στο σινεμά (το αδιευκρίνιστος πάει για τις δύο συνέχειες).'Ολα στο σινέ Μαργαρίτα εάν θυμάμαι καλά,το οποίο παρόλο που έχει κλείσει εδώ και αρκετά χρόνια,δεν έχει γίνει σούπερ μάρκετ ή κάτι άλλο,αλλά έχει μείνει έτσι όπως ήταν, δίνοντας ελπίδες ότι μπορεί κάποτε να ξανανοίξει.Δεν θα ανοίξει ποτέ βέβαια πιστεύω,αλλά κουβέντα να γίνεται.Όπως βέβαιο είναι πως Scream μια φορά γυρίζεται και μετά απλώς κάνεις την ίδια ταινία τρεις φορές ακόμα. Ένταξει πλάκα είχε,θυμήθηκα τα νιάτα μου,αν και πάνε χρόνια που τα έχω δει νομίζω είναι καλύτερο του δεύτερου,περίπου στα ίσα με το τρίτο (το οποίο όμως είχε την Parker Posey),αλλά ρε γαμώτο είχα καταλάβει ποιος κάνει τους φόνους με τη μία.Αλλά του πούστη,άμα δεις κάτι τέσσερις φορές κάποια σωστή μαντεψιά θα την κάνεις.
The first and 3rd are definitely the best ones, still liked it though!
First scream movie that i watched till the end and was hilariously entertaining. Also, Emma Roberts. That is all.
has grown surprisingly strong with age especially in the satire department, a grand giant middle finger to reboots and reimaginations.
I actually like this one more than I originally thought I would. I think they were able to update the original in a smart way and integrated modern technology well with riffs on more modern horror trends.
Seeing middle-aged Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette running around with the kids puts a new spin on "fear of dying"...
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
