Scream 4

Ten years since Scream 3, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and the Ghostface Killer are back. The original writer (Kevin Williamson) and director (Wes Craven) also return. New knife fodder includes Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Adam Brody and Rory Culkin.

Sidney (Campbell), now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (Arquette) and Gale (Cox), who are now married, and their family. But Sidney's presence in town stirs the return of Ghostface...

The picture delivers enough of the expected goods, if seldom with the wit or panache of the series' best.

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.

All through the movie, Scream 4 lets us know that it knows exactly what it's up to - and then goes right ahead and gets up to it.

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.

A desire to Know What You Did Last Installment is likely to be the biggest draw for Scream number four, but if this proves to be the last in the series, it's a bloody shame it ended not with a Scream but a whimper.

This movie was Brilliant! It was perfectly relevant to today's new & constantly growing multimedia world not to mention it was just as 'self aware' as all the other movies. This movie was EXACTLY what this decade's generation of teens is all about. Maybe that's why so many {older} critics have been giving it so much sh*t. There is a huge difference in...

I don't know anyone who's been Craven for a new Scream, but like it or not, the self-aware slasher series is back. Promoting that the "rules" of horror have changed for a new generation, Scream 4 takes pride in labelling the new set of horror cliches, only to commit most of them moments later. The film opens up with an brilliant stab at shark-jumping...
