Scream (2022) | Reviews

Wes Craven would be proud of how this biting commentary on contemporary film culture juggles self-awareness of being a "requel" with genuinely disturbing knifeplay.

The new Scream, in all its meta-for-a-modern-time goodness, is the best installment since the Wes Craven original.

The new Scream may be the first horror movie that turns the mockery of fan service into its own fan service. Is it fun? Mostly, yes.

Strong enough to suggest the franchise isn't ready to die yet.

Scream nicely mines modern movie discourse in a way to justify its own existence.

In addition to being the best of the sequels... the new Scream is very much a movie for this moment...

Expertly blends reverence for the source material while creating something that feels almost completely new.

For the most part, this is a ‘re-quel’ as fast, funny and ferocious as a Scream movie should be.

Well crafted, but really just the same old-same old.

Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillet clearly understand the need to deliver tension, gore and straight-up scares alongside the clever references. On this aspect, Scream delivers – big time.

For all its cheeky self-reflexivity, this Scream actually has a lot on its mind, even if the series’ ideas and kills used to cut much deeper.
