Film Review - "Scream 4"
It's Been 11 years since the last "Scream" movie and Wes Craven wastes little time bringing the nostalgic feeling to the game as the opening scene, as well as many other moments, are reminiscent and flat out throwbacks to the original first film. Many are saying "Scream 4" is the best film in the series since the original, and it's hard to disagree once seeing it with an audience. The kills are much more simplistic than most of the over the top kills horror fans have gotten used to in recent years, but they're just as brutal as any kills in recent horror history. It's also clear from the very beginning that this is also probably the Darkest film in the series. For those die hard scream fans that had a bad taste left in their mouth from "Scream 3", this installment more than makes up for it. As with every Scream film, it's all about figuring out who the killer is this time around, and once revealed, turns out to be a good solid reveal. "Scream 4" is a great Welcome Back to the Scream franchise and shows that this series of one of the most popular slasher flicks still has plenty of life left in it. If "Scream 5" happens, we'll be there happily and could only hope for a film as good as "Scream 4".
