The year was 1996 and I was in high school when Scream came out. I wasn’t a big fan of horror movies, but I somehow saw this one.
Then there was Scream 2 and Scream 3. Each move a not quite as good as the one before it but at least the characters stayed the same and they all follow the same basic storyline.
And now there is Scream 4; or Scre4m.
Once again the movie isn’t that great, but it’s Scream. Yea the acting is cheesy and the plot is basically the same but at least all the main characters, or more importantly actors, are there.
One of the best parts of the movie is how it makes fun of itself. From the characters to the plot, there are plenty of cheap shots. They even work in a scene that includes Facebook and Twitter. How progressive.
If you grew up with the originals, then this is a must see. For $0.99 at Redbox, you can’t go wrong. Just keep your expectations low.
