Scream 4 (2014) Review:
after how bad the third movie was, I really wasn’t expecting anything but crap out of this fourth chapter. Thankfully for all of us, I turned out to be wrong, Scream 4 is a great movie and, to me, simply the best of all three Scream sequels. The great thing with these sequels is that they have enough budget to stick with the same actors (and director) since the beginning, therefore creating a great feeling of continuity throughout the franchise. Watching a new Scream movie after all these years will certainly make some nostalgic.
The scenario in this one is best described by the movie line: “this times, he makes the movie”. A new killer, a new set of potential suspects, and a lot of gory kills. Despite being the fourth time the story is repeated, there is a real will to innovate here. The story is creative enough and manage to respect the original movie while doing a decent job at being unpredictable. I especially liked how it reuses common horror clichés, such as “the killer appear in the door front”, “killer appear in the victim’s back” and twisted them to surprise the audience.
The bunch of new actors is also very good, including many rising stars from our favorite TV series such as Emma Roberts (American Horror Story) Hayden Panettiere (Heroes), Anna Paquin (True Blood).
To me, Scream 4 is one of the sole proof (and hence very important) that even a fourth sequel can be great if it is made by talented people who actually care.
