Final films by great filmmakers. I won't be including works by directors who are still alive, even if they've announced…
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.
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.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Hoop-Tober 2.0 # 6
Another film I haven't seen since it was released but this is a real return to form for the series and what looks like a fitting end. The film is just so much fun, so many film references and call backs to previous films in the series, from the appearance of the Dimension logo to the opening sound of a ringing telephone we know we are back on familiar territory, we then get 3 fun film within a film style false openings full of cameos (I kindo wish Kristen Bell had a bigger role) and Kevin Williamson's (who's back on scripting duties) rapid fire, meta dialogue.
The opening proper see's us re-introduced to the three…
New decade, new rules, more gore, more classic Scream. “Consider this an alternate ending”
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.
Sidney Prescott the survivor is just wrapping up the tour for her newly published book and what better place to finish than back in Woodsboro. Last stop on her book tour and first stop on her journey to a new life living without fear. Unfortunately for Sidney and her friends another Ghostface killer has emerged…with a bit of a modern twist. As Woodsboro is once again thrown into panic from a psycho killer this time the killer is making the movie.
I know this didn’t get a very warm reception when it came out, but like the rest of the Scream franchise I watch this all the time it feels like…at least every October. Sure at the beginning I could…
15 years after The original the series is as good as ever
Lo que hace grande a esta película es ser conciente de si misma, un montón de buenos e ingeniosos diálogos y un tono cómico, un inicio sorprendete y de una brillantez absoluta y un buen final, los asesinatos en su mayor parte son típicos pero estan aderezados por todo lo anterior comentado
Wes Craven regresa a Woodsboro 15 años después del primer “Scream” para (según él) reinventar la saga… me sentí insultado al ver que los trailers me decían que los tres protagonistas principales de la saga Campbell, Cox, Arquette cederían su puesto a carne fresca, cosa que yo si quería porque ellos ya me tienen aburrido y ¿Qué paso? NADA.
La apertura donde se ve claramente la alusión a la saga “SAW” es lo único que vale la pena, es graciosa y solo un verdadero fan la puede entender (totalmente inesperada), Craven cumple de la mejor manera posible y sorprendiendo a los espectadores en más de un momento. El guión viene firmado por Kevin Williamson y se nota que es suyo…
Still remains one of my favourite guilty pleasures.
2nd re-watch of them all done this year, probably doing another next month. HELP.
I think this one is pretty great. It really plays around with the idea of horror remakes in a way that feels true to the spirit of the original. And it's fun.
Meh. It's better than 3.
After the abysmal "Scream 3" which I really wasn't a fan of. It was a movie that had many re-writes. Kevin Williamson was not the writer, the killers reveal was terrible and it was just an atrocious mess. Yes Wes Craven did direct but even he wasn't happy with all the re-writes and changes to it.
I'm so glad we got "Scream 4" because this was a return to form for the Scream franchise. Back to being very self away and back with Kevin Williamson writing again.
It also is one that keeps you guessing right to the end, does some very interesting things to work with the new generation and does everything you would want in a slasher and…
