A fun and witty reminder of an old horror master's unparalleled talents.

Combining the three constant players from the original trilogy with a new cast of fresh faces, this is a fun little flick that will surely entertain fans of the genre.

Old meets new in the best, most genuine kind of way.

Where the film works best is in its sharp, self-aware attitude toward the rules of the horror genre, and can perhaps be forgiven its occasionally unexciting dialogue and ridiculous one-liners.

It doesn't always hit the vital organs, but it comes pretty close, and sometimes that's all it takes.

The films true strength, though, lies in the young cast. Alongside [Hayden Panettiere's] Kirby are Kieran Culkin and Emma Roberts. Their performances elevate the film from simply a great movie to a rewatchable classic.

Its gimmicks haven't grown up, although its older fan base has.
May 3, 2015
A half-thought-out lark, the movie mocks and rejects every current trend of the genre.
June 30, 2013
Easily rises up its peers in the genre and is a suspenseful sequel worth screaming about.
April 21, 2013
Weak plot, half-assed performances and lacking any originality make this a lame and uninspired film.
January 15, 2013
Fails at chills, stumbles as satire. Tired. Played out.
October 2, 2012
Everybody is still a suspect and everybody is still a victim, but narrowing down our Ghostface has become easier than ever.

Returning horror fans should enjoy Scream 4. The series remains smartly unapologetic in toying with meta-references and horror-film expectations.

Brutal? Funny? Clever? You get the feeling that maybe, just maybe, Randy would have approved after all.
September 20, 2012
"Scream 4" continues to show that the series has passed its prime.
January 30, 2012
As a commentary on the ongoing (d)evolution of horror cinema and infotainment culture since the last film, it's sharp, perceptive, and funny.
January 29, 2012
If you only watch Scream 4 once, it might prove satisfying. But the film fails to hold any value beyond its first screening, largely thanks to a sloppy script that feels like a rough draft.
November 5, 2011
... Basically back to the same old, same old. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing in this age of endless "Saw" sequels.
October 20, 2011
The characters grapple with the 'rules of horror' films, but the number one rule that I am sure everyone involved with 'Scream 4' knew but refused to say: The fourth installment always and forever sucks.
October 11, 2011
Scream 4 bucks the horror trend by retaining a level of quality rarely seen this many sequels in to a series.
