Director Edgar Wright Pays Tribute to Wes Craven

Edgar Wright Wes Craven tribute

Horror director Wes Craven, the man responsible for A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, among many other films, passed away over the weekend, succumbing to a battle with brain cancer. It’s a loss felt by many horror fans and cinephiles, who are taking stock of Craven’s significant influence on the movie landscape.

In case you need any more evidence that Wes Craven was a filmmaker who inspired many directors working today, Edgar Wright has chimed in on his own personal blog with a fond remembrance of Craven and what his work meant to the director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

One of the staples of the Scream franchise is the huge twist before the opening credits and that trend continued with Scream 4, which hits Blu-ray Tuesday. In fact, I think the first few minutes are by far the best of Scream 4. They’re clever, surprising and filled with the type of self-reference and cameos that made the series great. Unfortunately, the film slowly drops off after that.

We now know one of the changes director Wes Craven made to the film thanks to the extras on the new disc. He radically changed a segment of the opening. Is it for better or worse? Decide for yourself. Read More »

In retrospect, over a decade removed from its previous installment and plagued with lukewarm reviews, maybe it’s not that big a surprise Scream 4 was a box office bomb. The first three films each made around $100 million but Scream 4, released 11 years after the third film, has so far grossed under $40 million. Still, Harvey Weinstein, who has executive produced all the films in the franchise, seems confident that we’ll get a Wes Craven-directed Scream 5 in the future. And after that Scream 4 ending, we really deserve it. Read his quotes after the jump. Read More »

‘Scream 4’ – What Did You Think?

There are a lot of questions surrounding the release of Wes Craven’s Scream 4 this weekend. Can Craven still pull off a solid horror thriller? (Obviously the man is a legend, but 2010’s My Soul To Take wasn’t exactly his most impressive work.) Even if Craven succeeds as a director, can he reinvigorate a moribund franchise? And can said franchise, which itself was a shot-in-the-arm to the horror genre during its initial release in 1996, still maintain its relevance in the midst of increasing cynicism in today’s horror cinema?

Be sure to check out Germain’s review of the film, and share your thoughts in the comments below. And assume SPOILERS lie after the jump and in the comments.

Movie Review: ‘Scream 4′

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Scream 4 is done. It’s out there. And as we ride a wave of publicity, press screenings and more leading up towards the April 15 release, fans will have to dodge an obstacle course of spoilers revealing who dies, when they die, how they die and, of course, who or what is Ghostface this time around. For the record, I have no idea – I’m also avoiding spoilers at all costs – so feel free to read on.

Besides the onslaught of spoilers, one of the film’s biggest controversies was the reported creative differences surrounding franchise creator and the screenwriter of this fourth film, Kevin Williamson. We heard that sometime in the middle of production he left and Ehren Kruger (who wrote Scream 3 and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) came in. Director Wes Craven has finally spoken out on these issues and while you can read his comments below, beware that we’re also going to include some new photos, one of which is surely considered a spoiler. Feel free to read the quotes below but then watch out for the spoiler warning. Read More »
