Scream 4 (2011)

“This isn’t a comedy, it’s a horror film. People live, people die and you’d better start running. ” – The Voice

Number of Times Seen – 1 (24 Oct 2018)

Brief Synopsis – A decade after the previous attacks, a new killer shows to wreck havoc on a new generation of teens.

My Take on it – One of the things that have always bothered me about sequels and remakes is the fact that they rehash things from previous films and lose so much of the uniqueness and originality of the film.

There is a definite degeneration of the premise of the films in this series as they move along and this film is clearly the worst of the franchise.

One of the things that they do with these films that is interesting is the way that they constantly try to make the storyline as relevant as possible to the time when it takes place.

The trio of stars from the previous 3 films (Courtney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell) are all back and despite attempts to make this storyline feel new and improved, it fails to seem that way at all.

I really hope that they have stopped making these films because as can be seen by the way this one is done, they no longer have innovative and interesting places to go with this storyline.

Bottom Line – No where near as good as the previous 3 films because it feels as if they are rehashing the same ideas over and over yet trying to make them more relevant to the times that they take place in. The trio of stars from the previous films are all back again and despite the fact that the film tries to make it feel as if things are new, it’s unfortunately not. Hope that they have finally stopped making these films because they seem to have run out of original ideas.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – As seen in the gag reel, there was an on-going prank on-set where somebody dressed in the Ghostface mask would jump out and scare an actor or actress at a time when Ghostface wasn’t scripted to appear. For example, an actor or actress would open a door expecting nobody to be behind it, and instead somebody in the mask would jump out. In at least one instance, this prank was pulled on an actress during a scene where she was scripted to be chased by a killer, rounded a corner and met an unscripted appearance by Ghostface. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
