Scream 4 – Movie Review
A new decade, new rules... but Scream 4 is definitely the same game.
Knifes, cordless phones, voice changers, wind chimes, heck even the distant bark of the neighbor’s dog are all back with a semi-new coat of paint. Actually semi-new is a generous term, let's say reworked - ok you've seen it before x 3.
The beauty of the Scream's is that you know how it starts, the opening scene where the first phone rings and someone becomes victim to the knife. It's what sets the whole movie up, it’s the trademark, so when it started taking the piss out of itself in a parallel universe kinda way you knew it was all downhill from there.
10 years on and we’re back in Woodsboro, the original scene of the crime. With a hint of Saved by The Bell; The College Years the original cast is back with an injection of fresh blood (for the slashing). Joining the town on the anniversary of the original murder some ten years on you'll be happy to know we're past the making of the in-movie sequels ‘Stab’, in fact they've pumped out 7 while we've been gone. Sidney (Neve Campbell)is back living in town after having written a book about her ordeal, as are the married Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) and Dewey (David Arquette).
