Quite good movie on a Blu-Ray. Good price as well.
Scream 4 is a coming of age horror movie that, as always, is totally self aware of both its satirical nature and its own film history. Story Through critique of the likely evolution of slasher movies the characters work together to establish who the killer behind the mask is. Whilst it may not always be surprising or alternatively even make sense, such is the nature of movies like these. The parody flies quite close to the sun in terms of mimicking an art form so much as to almost become it, but if you take the story as it is, it's unlikely that you'll be disappointed. Characters An array of both old and new characters appear, working well together to bridge the history of scream to the murders being committed modern day. Music Exactly what you expect, a tense dramatic piece that suits well the atmosphere. The 'H' (Horror) Factor Scary, sure. But the parody element takes shine off it. But really, scream without parody would just make it just another slasher movie, and frankly, the film has strived, and succeeded, in becoming much more. The R (Rewatchability) Factor Certainly this is a film where you are going to notice sometime nuanced and new beyond the first viewing. I saw it in the cinema and on blueray and enjoyed it both times. MATM (Me and the Movie) A small piece of personal trivia: when I saw this in the cinema there was no audio for the first 10 minutes or so. I thought this was intentional for maybe 5 minutes but like the others realised, it was clear that the extensive character dialogue was certainly meant to be heard and not just seen. The cinema staff rewound the film and restarted it. Overall A good piece of history that certainly knows it's 21st century place. 4/5 awarded for a slightly confusing ending and a feeling that the originality of the film could have been pushed just that bit further.
It is not good as the first one, but better than the second or the third one. I enjoyed watching it. Wes Craven did a good job.
Scream 4 is a good rehash of the original Scream! If you enjoyed Scream the first time around, this is more of the same, but just not original. The Blu-ray is great!
I really didn't know what to expect from this film as it had been eight years since part three and fifteen years since the first film. Plus, the reviews of it had not been very good but I thought it was a really good reinvention of the franchise and it was good to see the remaining original cast back together again. I like what Craven has done to bring the film up to date ie, using the internet, etc. I also like the start of the film even if it does rip of something the film 'American Werewolf in London' did 30 years earlier. Also for a 15cert it does contain a lot of violence and gore. I'm not comparing to the gore classics of the 80's but I thought it was gorier than the original film. All in all, I think this film fits perfectly with the originals and hopefully Craven will be making another one soon.
Not a patch on the first one, but it has some fun moments (most of which are in the trailer). The chick from Heroes is actually one of the best things in this and gives it a bit of life. Worth a watch. Shame there's no extras though.
I had been very weary of Scream 4, panned by critics and fans, and said to have lost the magic of the original trilogy. Well....... Personally I think that's not the case. Pretty much a remake of the original as well as being a sequel. It's fun, entertaining and even manages to throw a twist or 2 here and there. It's everything the original Scream was and more!, Buy it!
Just when you thought the franchise has had its day, its back! Reborn and revamped full of suspense, twists and turns that keep you guessing till the very end! I loved this film and its definitely worth every penny in adding to your collection!!!.
