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.

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

Trivia.
1)With four installments, this landmarks the Scream franchise as being one of the only horror franchises to have its main characters return for all its sequels.
2)Wes Craven stated he was not going to return as director unless the script was as good as the first Scream (1996).
3)For the first time in the series, a CGI-added knife was used because Wes Craven wanted to avoid using prop knives that are rubber, cardboard or collapsible.
4)The first Scream movie not to include Jamie Kennedy (as Randy Meeks), not feature or even mention Cotton Weary, & not include a main love interest for Sidney.
5)The only horror movie franchise with an (R) rating to not feature any nudity.

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).

SYNOPSIS

In the wake of the 15th Anniversary of the notorious original Woodsboro murders (never mind the higher bodycount in SCREAM 2 or what happened in SCREAM 3...) Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) returns to promote her book (everybody's an author now?). Unfortunately for her Ghostface returns.

THE PROS & CONS

The original SCREAM still remains the best part of the franchise, SCREAM 4 is not going to change that, but part 4 is definitely an improvement over SCREAM 2 and a huge improvement over the abysmal part 3.
Kevin Williamson is back, too, as the script writer. It still is a weak script, as it is only an unoriginal rehash of the previous movies. There clearly was much more potential here, after so many years I was expecting something more original like SCREAM 1. He's made good on one issue of the previous sequels, though: the characters are better. Mostly gone are the forgettable, expendable canon fodder characters of SCREAM 2 & 3, the new characters Jill Roberts (Emma Roberts) and Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere) are just well-written and do their acting parts surprisingly well, even managing to sometimes steal the show. Campbell's performance is on top as usual and her character has gotten tougher - I liked that. I also liked the addition of Marley Shelton as Deputy Judy Hicks and Anthony Anderson as Deputy Perkins, David Arquette is back as Sheriff Dewey Riley and so is Courteney Cox good performances here.

Format: Blu-ray
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.
