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

Product Description

In Scream 4, Sidney Prescott, now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (played by Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghost Face, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.

The newest installment in the acclaimed franchise that ushered in a new wave of horror in the 1990s is written by series creator Kevin Williamson and directed by suspense master and director of the first trilogy, Wes Craven. The film stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Anthony Anderson, Adam Brody, Mary McDonnell, Marley Shelton, Nico Tortorella, Marielle Jaffe, Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin, Lucy Hale, Shanae Grimes, Aimee Teegarden and Brittany Robertson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected 24 Sep 2013
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
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!

The reason I have given this film the full 5 stars here is simply because it is so awesomely ridiculous that far from being a horror it actually becomes a laugh out loud comedy! All of the old horror movie teen- slasher cliche's are here and whats so great about this film is that the characters actually spend time talking about 'old horror movie cliches' themselves as part of the plot!

With more murders, blood, gore and predictability than the holiday season in Midsomer, Scream 4 is perhaps the ultimate piss take of the horror movie genre and as such is essential viewing. In fact, I would go as far as to say that if you really tried to make a movie as bad as this on purpose you would be hard pushed. This is right up there with the classic 'Wacko' where the father is perpetually 'mowing the lawn' while spying on his teen daughter getting dressed (half way up a ladder!) and you will rejoice each slashing as the characters in the film are SOOO stupid ( the scene where Sydney goes out onto the patio in pitch darkness to untwist a wind chime that has become tangled when most of her friends have been butchered is a classic!) that they deserve what they get 100%.

Yes folks, Scream4 is so excrutiatingly awful that it is genius! So as long as you don't want to genuinely watch a horror/scarey film you should buy it and enjoy the butchery!

After the genuinely epic third film I didn't think that they could top that one for sheer awesomeness. Boy was I wrong. From the amazing trick opener(s) right though to the fantastic closing battle this film improves on what went before it. Neve Campbell is as lovely and kick ass as ever. The action set pieces are genuinely dazzling. I was robbed of the surprise re the killers identity reveal due to imdb users but that didn't seem to make the darnedest bit of difference to my enjoyment at all. To top it all off you've got the gorgeous and handsome Adam Brody and he's so fine. One particular scene is exceptionally brutal and savage but that's what the film is meant to be about. If you needed any further incentive to experience one of the finest horror comedy slasher movies of all time? Heather Graham reprises her role from Scream 2. A supremely special sequel. Recommended for anyone who enjoys a good romp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valley of the Painted Stepford Teens. 14 Mar 2014
The latest victims of this instalment are looking more and more like mannequin clones.What is Hollywoods obsession with ageless actresses that have more layers of makeup than layers of acting abilities?Even Courtney Cox was looking like an anorexic drag queen.
However this film still delivers what I enjoy from this series-humour,twists,good kills and great set ups!Just a shame that the rest of this proposed trilogy never happened.

Scream should of realised when they were onto a good thing and stopped at the first one. That is a classic and will live on in horror genre forever. This however......

Will not. It's same old s***, different cast. There are a few surprises and I think the actual killer or killers ( not telling) is a surprise.
Courtney cox is bizarre she has messed with her face big time and doesn't even look like her. She also talks different and so does her hubby. Dooley.

Worth a watch but don't pay a lot.

I bought this in addition to the 1-3 box set since there is not a 1-4. An interesting addition to the trilogy though a little flat on plot

The movie is slightly like a reboot, but its a decent entry to the series and I think hardcore scream fans will either love it or hate it. I liked the movie and wanted to love it, but I have to be true in my own opinion and feeling on movies.
