Back in the 90s, the face of horror and suspense thriller was reinvented by Wes Craven's Scream. Now in 2011, the franchise gets a second green light with three of the remaining casts returning for what they say is a final blood bath and stabs.
"Scream 4" reunites Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) with former friends Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox) and Dewey (David Arquette). Sid returns to Woodsboro as a promotional campaign for her new book but alas, the killing spree just started as soon as she stepped her foot back to her hometown. The newest addition to the Scream franchise introduces a new line of fresh talents that include Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin and Emma Roberts.
Godo thing to see them back but the desperate attempt to actually revive a franchise did not really do well. Instead of having audiences super scary or fright moments, I actually did laugh at some of the movie scenes. The surprise factor was still there but not as much as the original. And though this sequel is way better and way well-thought than Scream 3, it still did not do much to the franchise. I believe that they should have let it finish on part 3. The guessing part on who the killer was was just too obvious. Still 3 popcorns out of 5.
