Scream 3 is a fine ending to the trilogy. The teen horror franchise that ate itself.

...a rather anticlimactic finish to a series that started out with such promise...

Scream 3 is a crafty and well-crafted wrap-up that really does bring a satisfying sense of closure to the franchise.

A pretty funny gore-fest that delivers the goods with a few new twists.

Fulfills its modest ambitions by delivering a glib slasher spoof for the mall crowd.

One of the best scary movies in years, full of deadpan humour, red herrings and some very good jolts.

Fans will enjoy, but will be to confusing for newcomers and lacks scares for horror buffs.

Go see it. It's fun. See if you can spot the "homages" also known as "satirical rip-offs."

While Scream 3 is only an above-average film in its own right, as the conclusion to the trilogy it works more effectively than anyone had a right to expect.

Unfortunately, this final installment, while answering some lingering questions, still doesn't feel essential.

Still satisfying comedic shlock horror, but the premise is starting to wear a bit thin as the trilogy draws to a close.

New-kid-on-the-block screenwriter Ethan Kruger acquits himself admirably in filling tapped-out creator Kevin Williamson's big, black boots.

Undeniably well-done, thanks to director Wes Craven's masterful sense of the horror/comedy combination.

The third time's a charm. Scream 3 is nearly on par with the first and far better than the dull second installment.

No matter what its weaknesses may be, however, Scream 3 is easily as much fun as parts one and two, and just as suspenseful.

There's still enough gas in this old buggy for a moderately entertaining final ride.

If slasher films are your cup of tea, Scream 3 will probably leave you fairly satisfied.
