Better than the woeful Scream 3, partly thanks to the influx of new faces and the return of Williamson. But really it’s more of the same, as the franchise slips further towards total self-parody.

The central conceit of the characters' fates being determined by the "rules" of horror movies feels irredeemably tired; a clever idea that was worth one movie.

The kills themselves are both bountiful and bloody, the movie references are brilliant and bloody, the funny is very frequent and very frequently bloody, but to say any more would ruin the boo.
