Scream

Scream ★★★½

An excellent reboot that addresses the obvious new genre targets (legacy sequels, elevated horror) but also the increasingly toxic online fandom that seems to drive Hollywood decision making these days. Once again it benefits from the very formula it's playfully mocking, bringing back characters from the series and replicating many story beats that audiences loved in the first film. Doesn't pack quite the same deliriously over-the-top punch when it comes to humor but makes up for it with a more gruesome approach to violence that has you alternately laughing or covering your eyes. Let's do this again every decade or so.
