SCREAM 4 DVD

Couldn't resist this as SCREAM 1 - 3 just recently watched and mostly enjoyed. Glad I did. Excellent transfer, correct ratio, good clear picture, sound and subtitles. It's sometimes an odd experience reading other reviews. There are quite a few ONE star ones, and bizarrely perhaps, I find myself agreeing with a lot of them. Tired? Poorly written? Badly acted? Unbelievable?? Maybe, but I thoroughly enjoyed this 4th venture, ably directed again by Craven and written by Williamson, with 3 returning stars Cox/Arquette, and Campbell (who I must say did not look overly happy, but then she isn't supposed too!( Loads more blood and gore. An awful lot of "F" words could spoil the film for some, but the sheer cheek and pace, and the fact I didn't have a clue who "Ghostface" was, just made the 100 mins fly by. Lovely to see Hayden Panattiere in a nice part. Read the 1 and 2 star reviews and some of the many 5 star ones. Difficult? Hard to decide? At the current price (£6) go for it.

First up, I'm way too old for these updated slasher shenanigans so apologise first and foremost for this review. I've been a 'Scream' fan since the release of Wes Cravens' original - even through the downward curve of the sequels. However, I'm always hopeful that maybe they can recapture that lightning in a bottle moment from 1996. Maybe.

In the quiet Californian town of Woodsboro, all has been quiet for the hapless locals who have endured 4 random bouts of serial killer slayings. Now, on the 25th anniversary of the original murders, it appears a new killer has risen to don the 'Ghostface' mantle - targeting a new group of teens in a bloodthirsty rampage which again adheres to a set of particular filmic 'rules'. However, the killer isn't simply content with the usual slice 'n dice basics of the genre, instead turning their attention to original 'legacy' players; Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox) and David Arquette's Sheriff Dewey in a desperate attempt to bring down the final curtain on their lives...

Radio Silence duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett ensure the visual look and feel of Wes Craven is kept intact, yet seem to drop the ball when it comes to character development, tension and genuine intrigue. To be fair though, they aren't overly aided by the dull, A to B screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick that's content with simply rehashing the past in a sub 'The Force Awakens' schtick except with more F bombs and stabbing. The returning duo of Campbell, Cox and Arquette are fine but they are mere cyphers to ensure those juicy memberberries are all present and correct. There are no real achievements with their characters and one wishes a few more polishes in the screenplay department would have given them more meaning. The new teenage cast aren't as happy-go-lucky as previous victims, seemingly a little more po-faced by their fascination with (groan...) 'elevated horror' and again, a predilection for dropping that F bomb more times than I care to remember. At one point, I inadvertently assumed they had mistakenly overlaid the audio soundtrack from 'Goodfellas' so aggressive was the language. But, y'know, I'm old. So yeah. There's that.

All in all, it may work for some and I'm happy for that. However, for me I just wish contemporary filmmakers would give modern generations a better class of horror movie. I'm an '80s kid and was pretty much spoilt by the abundance of original ideas - yet today all that seems to appear is empty, recycled dreck. I was hoping this new 'Scream' may buck that particular trend, but it seems I better keep hoping. Shame.

Enjoyable movie for fans if not a little unnessecary
Verified purchase
This was a solid addition to the franchise if you're a fan, and growing up with the originals always means scream has nostalgic value that always colours my view slightly. I enjoyed this movie as a solid addition but I must admit it did feel a little unnessecary. It doesn't really add much into the franchise outside of the existing movies other than to give us a glimpse into the life of Sydney, Gayle and Dewey again after another ghostface killer appears. Kind of like the previous entry.

I liked that the movie is self aware and there is a good scene with the new characters and Dewey where they almost summarise the plot of the movie and the value of legacy characters in a franchise.

But other than that solid movie if nothing remarkable. Original fans will enjoy, new fans may find it bang average.

It’s ok

This is a continuation of the scream franchise. Without adding spoilers there are what’s called “legacy” characters and new people in the film connected in some way to those legacy characters. As expected the plot involves a series of murders where the group need to figure out who the killer is before it’s too late. For me the focus was heavily on the past films and the relevance to the murders in this one, talking a lot about the fans. It did not bring anything new or especially enjoyable so for me it’s 3 stars.

Classic… continued

This latest instalment has everything you loved about the original slasher/stalker movie series. The story follows on directly from the original series so there are some stellar appearances from some of the original stars plus a whole new cast to get to know.

The exploration of the machinery of the plot that was so much a part of the original series is back as we romp through this reboot/sequel or ‘requel’.

If you loved the original you will love this requel, brilliant fun from start to bloody finish.

I've always loved the Scream movies, but Scream 4 (the previous one) was pretty bad and because of that I didn't have much hope for Scream 5. Luckily, Scream 5 is amazing. It feels a lot like watching the first scream for the first time! It leaves you guessing right up until the end. I'll definitely be buying it on Blu-ray!

A NEW TAKE ON THE ORIGINAL FILMS. ITS GOOD TO SEE THE ORIGINAL CHARACTERS WITH NEW, UPCOMING ACTORS AND ACTRESSES.

IT HAS WIT AND HUMOUR, BUT ALSO A GOOD PLOT. USING UP TO DATE TECHNOLOGY AND SHOWING HOW MEDIA OBSESSED TEENAGERS ARE. THIS FILM HAS PLENTY OF ACTION AND DEAD BODIES. A GOOD TWIST AND A KILLER WHO IS REMAKING THE ORIGINAL FILM WITH A DIFFERENCE.

I THINK THIS COULD BE THE BEGINNING OF A NEW TRILOGY?

This was fun!

I liked the way this movie brought back the legacy original cast, and almost made fun of itself by talking about all the horror movie clichés. But aside from all that we enjoyed it and spent time guessing who ghostface was (we didn't guess right lol). If you are a fan of the original movie this is worth a watch
