31 Days of Halloween

Scream 4 (2011)

Directed by: Wes Craven
Written by: Kevin Williamson
Starring: Neve CampbellCourteney Cox and David Arquette

What’s happened to Wes Craven?!

The original SCREAM was a thrilling cross between a whodunnit and a slasher. It was witty, scary and funny. SCREAM 2 was more of the same, but still well done. SCREAM 3 was a joke. I mean, Jay & Silent Bob have a cameo! What the hell?!

Now we have SCREAM 4 or SCRE4M. More like SCREAM BORE. This plodding mess has no reason to exist. It had a perfect opportunity to add a fresh spin and even comment on today’s “torture porn” and “found footage” flicks, but it doesn’t. Instead it’s more of the same and slightly better than SCREAM 3.

What an utter disappointment. Wes Craven’s dead to me.
