From Amazon.co.uk

Without a refresher viewing, the details of Scream, the 1996 collaboration between horror-meister director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson (who also famously chronicled the ways of wayward teens without so much bloodshed as creator of the TV sensation Dawson's Creek) might be a little hazy. But even through the fog of memory, it's a pretty sure thing that texting, Facebook, live video streams on smart phones, and references to the Saw movie franchise were not major narrative devices. Even so, there is a common thread that yanks this inventive resurrection of the series back to life and ties it quite cleverly to the first, second, and third Scream installments. Summed up, that reach is captured in the word meta, which is pretty much what makes Scream 4 such a hoot as it scampers along on such a high plane of conceptual ingenuity. That several characters use the word in describing the action they're participating in makes the entirety of circular plot points, referential dialogue, and general level of self-reflexive action all the more exuberant. There are a few causes for honest screams in the action, even though the obvious raison d'être for Craven and Williamson's reteaming is to make audiences yelp with delight that trumps genuine fear pretty much every time.

Original cast members Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and Neve Campbell have all returned for the reunion, which also introduces (and largely kills off) a new set of young but very familiar faces recruited for the festivities. The sizable ensemble cast includes Anna Paquin, Kristen Bell, Alison Brie, Hayden Panettiere, Marley Shelton, Rory Culkin, Adam Brody, Mary McDonnell, and Heather Graham, among many others who make up visitors or inhabitants of the imaginary town of Woodsboro, USA, scene of the meta-movie carnage that began 15 years ago. The excuse for this round of action is the return of original surviving victim Sidney Prescott (Campbell), who is making a hometown stop on her book tour. As the heroic survivor of the various incarnations of Ghostface, the knife-wielding killer in Scream's first trilogy, Sidney has become a celebrity and purposefully shrugged off the victim label, but still lives on as a folk hero. Turns out she's especially popular with Woodsboro's high-school population and the many horror film buffs who constantly analyze their every activity in relation to the behaviors of movie characters and the rights and wrongs of what to do when there's a killer on the loose. It therefore surprises no one that Ghostface has returned to haunt Sidney, including retired reporter Gale Weathers (Cox), her now-husband Sheriff Dewey Riley (Arquette), and the assortment of teenage dopes who saturate the entire venture with theatrical gouts of gooey, black blood. The movie-within-a-movie franchise Stab is also a major player in Scream 4. Its sequel count is now up to seven as we discover in the briskly crafted and very funny opening scenes. In fact, Scream 4 is constructed with smarter precision than any of its predecessors and would require a lot of brain power for someone who feels up to the task of trying to figure out who Ghostface is this time and why the killing has started again. But taking the story seriously pretty much defeats the purpose of the absurdly entertaining formal achievement that Craven and Williamson have created. All the stabbing and screaming and intricate (il)logic of horror movie conventions are simply part of the mysterious amusement of a concept that will not die, now delightfully retooled for a new generation. --Ted Fry

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected 24 Sep 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I love scream, so was excited when I saw this had come out. However I was sceptical about it, thinking it would be a cheap cash in, Sydney is now in her early thirties so there is a new set of Woodsboro teenagers, including Sydney's cousin Jill.
Gail weathers and Dewey are also back as Ghost face once again terrorises the peaceful town of Woodsboro. This time there is an online- element and heavy use of cell phones as scream truly enters the digital age. I was left guessing right until the end who the killers were and I was not disappointed with the plot and pacing. I now hope there will be a scream 5 if it can be made to the same quality standards as this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars What's your favourite scary movie? 17 Jun 2013
By Miss AL Holloway TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Mine's not Scream 4, sadly.

As a horror movie fan, I enjoyed the Scream Trilogy a lot, particularly enjoying the self aware, self referencing dialogue which made them stand out from other films in the teen slasher genre.

My opinion is that they should have left it as a trilogy. There is nothing really bad about Scream 4, it is quite an enjoyable film for one watch, but despite the boast of new rules, I did not feel that it offered anything new to the series. It was to me, just not different enough and all the new rules are, is a load of references to the internet, social networks and more up to date horror movies.

That said, it was quite a fun watch, the acting was decent and the story was not too bad, having watched all the others it was perhaps a bit predictable. I still prefer the original trilogy, maybe it's just my age!

4.0 out of 5 stars what a hoot! 7 July 2014
By C.Elder
Format:DVD
Structured in a similar fashion to the first 3 Scream films, but much smarter, and makes full use of the "new world" we live in - of smart phones; social networks; and teens who are blasé about risks and danger as they have become inured to the real horror that exists around them. Lots of in-jokes about horror films; the Scream films themselves; various horror directors (notice the flash Robert rodriguez??) and a delight to watch as the veterans of the first 3 films are put through their paces once more. Arquette hasn't become any smarter and is now the sherriff; a "monica from friends" Courtney Cox " whose features may have been adjusted or bo-toxed? and the great Neve Campbell who is clearly a natural successor to "Ripley" of the "Alien" movies (talking of which why not cast her as such??)
But some cameos do not come off well, largely because the actors involved are so far beyond high school teens- unless this is done purposely as part of the joke???I wonder.... Anyway Kirsten Bell can't pass anymore and Hayden Panettiere, while vertically challenged is possibly twice the age being portrayed; Heather Graham looks as innocent as ever. But the film is quick moving, and Wes Craven still understands how to make a "scary movie" (another in joke).
