Scream 3 leaned more into the campier side of slasher movies by retconning the past and making the origins of Ghostface and the Woodsboro murders a little more complicated and cheesy. It’s still full of suspense, but perhaps the scariest thing in Scream 3 is the terrible new haircut sported by Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers. How did something this terrible make it to the big screen? It turns out we can blame her ex-husband and co-star David Arquette for that poor hairstyling choice. Read More »

Note: This review was originally published earlier this week.
The Scream series has always been a great, commercial representation for our love of cinema. They’re the rare movies that said, “If you are a fan of movies, this is for you” and actually found success. The problem with that, however, was as the films got more and more self-aware, character and storyline took more and more of a back seat. There in lies the problem with Scream 4. It tries so hard to be smarter, funnier, gorier and scarier than all of its predecessors that it often misses the mark. When it hits the mark, it hits it hard and in a near totally redeeming manner, but it’s impossible to totally redeem a lazy narrative structure that’s almost devoid of scares. Fans of the franchise will find plenty to enjoy, but others might find themselves frustrated.
