today during class something happened. My friend got there late and so missed the beginning of it so, once she…
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.

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.
Actually quite fun to watch all this character development and dark humour
Este filme que marca a retomada da franquia 'Pânico' não sai do lugar comum, sendo que até mesmo as "novas idéias" acabaram soando antiquadas.
I was a little worried when this film came out back in 2011. I was hoping it would mirror the original and be nothing like it's predecessors. I was very happy and though it incorporated the ways of the world at the time, it stayed true to it's blueprints. Like the original it was unique and forged it's own path. Scream 4 was dark and suspenseful with witty dialog and a clean and flowing type cinematography. It's years later and Sidney returns to Woodsboro to wrap up her book tour. Upon her return. She stirs up mixed emotions among her family, friends and the law. Everyone returns for the fright fest and also introduces some new, young faces. I think…
So 5 years later this still doesn’t play particularly well, but I’m much less annoyed by the old man screaming at the clouds aspect of it this time around, probably because watching the whole series in a day makes me remember how much the first film was already an old man movie about teenagers (that doesn’t excuse how little feel for teenage life Williamson script has). What most limits it is how little punch Craven’s direction actually has, as very little stands out. He always had a tendency to get lazy in his “for them” movies and even more than part 2, one can feel how much this is just marking time (maybe it was Craven’s distaste at having to…
five stars for the intro alone jesus christ what a fuckin rib
yep! already forgot
Tras diez años desde la masacre, Sidney Prescott regresa a Woodsboro y al parecer trae la muerte a la espalda, pues pronto comienzan a aparecer nuevas víctimas de Ghostface.
La película póstuma de Wes Craven es a un tiempo la mejor de la saga de lejos. Las referencias al cine de horror vuelven a ser constantes pero aquí se desbordan al grado de una caja china en la secuencia inicial. A partir de ahí seguimos una trama espejo de la primera entrega en tanto los personajes se la pasan quejándose de los remakes; encontramos guiños que en un momento dicen que una de las cintas Stab fue dirigida por Robert Rodríguez y que en el quinto episodio había un viaje…
Will we ever really get tired of ''all this meta shit'? No!
Wes Craven once again showed us how genious he could be. And we loved it. Definitely one of my favorite films of all time and, dare I say, my favorite Scream.
Did one of these 3 years ago. So much has happened since, we're all different people yada yada.
