The fourth Scream film, either called Scream 4 or Scre4m, depending on where you look, is rapidly approaching. But even with the April 15 release date coming relatively soon, the film is still in the midst of the post-production process. Test screenings of the Wes Craven-directed horror sequel are underway and the flyer for the test screening has a brand new plot synopsis. There’s nothing too revealing about this, especially if you’ve seen the trailer, so feel free to check it out after the jump.
Thanks to Bloody Disgusting for the heads up. Here’s the new plot description.
Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), 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 (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox), who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.
Since the test screening is happening this week, much bigger spoilers are sure to start popping up so be forewarned. In fact, I really hope that Craven puts some sort of alternative or false ending on the test screenings because I would hate for the identity of the killer to leak out. In the cast of the past few Scream movies, I always made sure to go opening night so that no one could spoil the ending. But if it’s news that a test screening is simply happening, though most test screenings make you sign a non-disclosure agreement, odds are someone is going to write a review and send it into a movie blog.
In the off chance that happens, maybe it’s time to reflect on a simpler, more innocent, pre-spoiler Scream 4 time. Check out the trailer once again.
Are you as excited for Scream 4 as I am? Or do you think the franchise is over and done with?
