Now this is my kind of coming of age. There isn't any like it I've ever seen. A refreshment of nostalgia. An adolescent, pubescent slice of white suburban insecurity. It's difficult to put into words the insurmountable strangeness of the film. It's a straightforward script to be clear, but the effictiveness of its simplicity, the natural performances from each character, and malaise of daily life is captured beautifully.
It's always a blast watching a Scream film a second time. There are no expectations anymore, it's just you and a bloody good film. However, watching a Scream film a second time, or third time, or however many times after your first viewing, will never be as thrilling. It's great to see the dynamics of the killer before the reveal and seeing their motivations in play, but unfortunately it's a franchise that never has me going back.
