Scream 4 Review
The first one was a cult classic, the second one was a little dry, the third one milked it. How will Wes Craven's fouth installment fit in with the rest of the series?
"What's your favorite scary movie?"
This movie was part comedy, part thriller, and part social commentary about the horror movie insdustry. The story is about the sole survivor of the original Scream coming back to her hometown where the ghost face murders took place. And of course, now that she's back in town, the murders are happening again.
With most flasher flicks, you have to be creative or else stabbing someone in the stomach with a knife can get really old really fast. Scream 4 falls into the latter category unfortunately. With the prequels to act as a spine for its story and very little to almost no character development, this movie was almost a flop. What saved it was a great ending, which surprised me to say the least.
Watch it if you have time, but don't expect any creative stab scenes.
FluffyBunnyPwn gives it 6/10 overall.
