It was alright but definitely not even close to the older “scream” films. I think the film tried to appeal to younger audience too much and in the process it lost it’s wit and originality. It was simply not smart anymore and that is what I liked the most about the old ones. The film tried to explore some interesting themes but it failed doing so because it does not have the patience for it. The film was made purely for the purpose of generating a large amount of money and nothing else, which is very sad. Overall, I did not like the film.
I am a huge fan of “Scream” movies and I have been waiting with for this film with such a huge anticipation. I am sad to say that I was greatly disappointed with “Scream 4”. It was not scary, not funny, not smart, and just not good at all. It was confusing as well because it was a movie within a movie within a movie, it was exhausting to watch. I also hated that the film does not offer clues who is the killer, it was my favourite thing about the old “Scream” films. Overall, if you are a fan you will be disappointed with this film.
The original Scream launched a new type of horror film: one that was self-aware and self-referential. Scream took the rules of horror, laid them out for us, and still managed to be scary. It was also a lot of fun. The Scream franchise has suffered from the law of diminishing returns, and unfortunately, this reboot of the series doesn't do much to change the fact that it should have died a long time ago.
Neve Campbell is back as Sydney, making her last stop on a book tour in her hometown of Woodsboro. Dewey and Gail are still there, and married (at least on screen they are). Guess who else shows up? Yep, Ghostface (unfortunately, not the rapper from Wu-Tang, who would have been a lot more entertaining). He proceeds to scare and sometimes disembowel a new generation of teens.
I couldn't help but feeling that the filmmakers were going through the motions with this movie. When Scream was released in 1996, it felt incredibly fresh. Now, they seem to be retreading. They completely laid out the rules of horror in the first few films, so we now know exactly what will happen every step of the way. They make no effort to do anything new, so the shocks aren't that shocking and the horror no where near horrifying. It's time for this film franchise to get killed off.
