Scream 3 (2000)Review:
Scream 3 presents itself as the conclusion of the Scream trilogy (even if we all know that there is a fourth movie now), thereby rousing the audience’s curiosity about how the epic story will be concluded. Well for me, it was only disappointment because Scream 3 didn’t feel like a conclusion at all but just a repetition of the first two movies.
The story is once more the same one, and reusing the Stab concept from the second movie kind of bored me, even if it gave rise to a couple of interesting « goes back to the original » scenes, such as the replica of Sid bedroom.
The worst part of the movie was by far the ending, an awkward and failed attempt to build a conclusion that ruins the all movie. The action scenes are another repetition of the first two movies and lack novelty. To compensate, Scream 3 drifts towards comedy, but was ends up being more annoying than funny. At times, I felt as if I was watching Scary Movie instead.
Whereas Scream was a homage to classic slashers and Scream 2 to their sequels…this third opus is logically about horror trilogy and their rules in cinema. It also incorporates more thriller elements than before, with a police investigation aspect that wasn’t so important in the first two movies.
After two successful movies, this one feels like a fail attempt at writing a powerful third scenario. Since the novelty aspect is long gone, is makes this sequel dull and repetitive.
