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…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
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.
Not awful, just ordinary... those in-jokes and meta-references that once seemed so clever and fresh now just feel tired, and it's way too drawn-out and repetitive. Still, Craven delivers a few suspenseful sequences and the 'teen' cast provide some youthful energy even if the old-timers (Campbell, Cox, Arquette) clearly just turned up for the pay cheque.
Scream 4 had lot of hype. Did it live up to it? Well, for the most part. It's definitely bloodier and more fun than Scream 3 but the format just seems so familiar that it was impossible to reinvent itself. I do like the idea of new rules for a new generation horror fans and the ending is actually pretty awesome. It's a solid entry in the series and I'd be interested to see a part 5.
I don't need friends, I need fans.
I still consider this a great sequel and it's my second favorite of the Scream franchise! Nice to finally rewatch this.
Terribly fun with a great sense of humor, particularly pointed at the remake-heavy horror scene, and a big dose of evil.
Great flick. Belongs amongst the ranks of it's predecessors.
Increíble que una cuarta parte de una saga de terror mantenga aun el tipo, me ha parecido la mejor después de la primera, pero que lamentablemente llega en una época donde no creo que interese mucho este tipo de cine. Le veo la misma capacidad de auto critica que a las anteriores, Ghostface esta mas sangriento que nunca, el inicio es cojonudo y técnicamente sigue estando muy bien.
Los nuevos personajes lamentablemente están lejos de los originales y no todos los orinales están completamente aprovechados, sin embargo se agradece su presencia y aunque a veces cae en los clichés que la misma cinta critica su capacidad de reírse de si misma la hace salir adelante.
Recomendable pero solo para los que disfruten de la saga y para las nuevas generaciones pues no vayan esperando otra Saw u Hostel porque esto no tiene nada que ver.
Divertida y entretenida, aunque no es brillante como las 2 primeras.
Another strong instalment in the Scream franchise (with returning writer Kevin Williamson) that sees the original core cast giving solid performances along with a younger cast that seem to be enjoying being there. At this point, it just doesn't seem as scary anymore but the twists and turns are always as entertaining.
I love this film I don't even care it's brilliant
You know, I will probably forget this by next week, but I still had a lot of fun with it. As someone who saw the original three times in theaters, and all the sequels as well, I can say I enjoyed it more than the previous two. There really isn't much to write about, the performances were ok, the story is the same, but the direction by Craven is great, and the jumpscares are effective. I also liked the twist. If anything, it was a tad overlong, but I liked how they acknowledged that as well. Very "meta", they would say.
