Scream 4

Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson are back with another installment of  "Scream", the franchise that revived the teen slasher genre in the late 1990's. Now this franchise is attempting to revive itself in 2011. Craven and Willamson do this successfully by keeping the humor and suspense of the previous films and contemporizing them by poking fun at the recent horror trends of "torture porn" like the Saw series and the countless classic horror remakes. The film also retains the "who dun it?" approach of the previous three which is also updated with much more graphic death scenes, another aspect of the horror franchises of the new millennium that keeps true to the series but with a fresh cutting edge (no pun intended!). My only gripe with this film is that I expected a little bit more. But to explain this, I would have to spoil the ending and kill the suspense! So, don't miss this one! It just may end up being your favorite scary movie! Grade A-
