Scream 3

5.61 h 56 min2000X-Ray18
The first film set the rules. In the sequel, the stakes got higher. In the third installment of the hit franchise SCREAM, all bets are off. It's an insidious game of horror movie mayhem with surprising twists and turns.

Springy script, but why have the screams gone?
Verified purchase
On the set of Stab 3 the cast are targeted by a serial killer using the same disguise as with Sidney Prescott (Campbell) who is once again brought into the equation.

In the third instalment of the most renowned serial killer series in the world we see Wes Craven once more use an exquisite horror slasher motive to get the adrenaline pumping and once more the stakes are higher as Neve Campbell is once more at the centre of attention for the masked villain.

Opening with the annoying Cotton rushing through traffic to save his girlfriend and the motive is set as the killer reveals his desire to kill Sidney and once more the central character from the franchise is up against the odds.

Sidney has developed throughout the screams to be a developed protagonist. The first film depicted her as a nervous wreck and thanks to her difficult life has progressed to be a profound figure in the series. This film encodes quite a bizarre usage of her mother coming back and is rather uncomfortable than scary.

Courtney Cox's Gale is as mouthy and uncaring as ever and though this film encodes some more sentimental scripting on her part, the friends star adds that necessity bite to portray her as the stubborn cow the reporter should be.
But thanks to many films having many horror ideas this is never about the acting and is all focused on what mayhem the killer can ensue.

Thanks to a clever part revival of the best character in modern horror we see more rules demonstrated and acted out but critically this film isn't scary.
When you watch a film you usually know what you're getting into. If you watch a Richard Curtis flick you'll know automatically its trashy love and if you pick up a Stanley Kubrick picture you're going to see something other worldly. And the connotations of scream you obviously aspect to be on the edge of your seat clutching desperately to the cushion. Whilst the first two films weren't especially groundbreaking in terms of scares they were certainly profound in demonstrating the motives and activities of a psycho, which this 2000 release does not accomplish.

There are frequent appearances of the white face and predictable jumps. And the fact that he keeps falling over and bashing into things make him appear as a clown rather than an established murderer and so your scare factor is down basically to the situation.

And yet that does work as once more the scripting is effective enough to keep you guessing right until the final stages and this is the franchise's strong point. With all 3 films you never know till the end and you simply have to keep viewing.

The first scream was definitely the best and since then the screams have dwindled but ultimately the films keep you guessing and this is its purpose, to entertain, which it does.

The Scream films are my favourite slasher horrors. Used to have them on DVD but as sometimes happens I went to watch them and couldn't find the DVD's anywhere so purchased on Amazon and now I can watch them on any device whenever I like and won't lose them again.

The third installment of the ghost face killing spree fanatic. Who is it going to be this time? Buy it & find out. Filled with twists to keep you guessing and still jumpy in places even when you know it's just someone in a mask and cloak. BRILLIANT FUN. GORY & GRUESOME.

Perhaps a step down from Screams 1 & 2, this is still a great sequel. It seems less scary or brutal as the first two films, with more humour permeating through, although Scream 3 has a bravura start and twisty finale. Wes Craven's direction is solid. The characterisation is still great, (especially the parts played by Scream regulars Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette), as is the sly critique about acting in horror films and Hollywood in general. Very enjoyable.

Fantastic addition to the Scream franchise
Verified purchase
This is one of the better Scream films (in my opinion). The characters have grown up a bit, as have the actors. It's lovely to see them all again (the survivors). This film utilises a little of our 21st century technology and has an amazing twist at the end. If you haven't seen this movie yet the ending will surprise you, but it's so good.

Scream 3 is average but not bad.

Scream 3 is the weakest of the four movies but it is not so awful that many of people use to describe it.Yeah it is kinda's like a parody of himself and the Hollywood system in general but it is not a waste of time.

Not as good as the first 2, but still good. Good cast and did follow on well. Death scenes a little more silly and by the end of this film wondered if the next one would be her being the killer, you know as she seems to be so involved with all the killers lol!
