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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 2, 2012
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.

As a commentary on the ongoing (d)evolution of horror cinema and infotainment culture since the last film, it's sharp, perceptive, and funny.

... Basically back to the same old, same old. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing in this age of endless "Saw" sequels.

Scream 4 bucks the horror trend by retaining a level of quality rarely seen this many sequels in to a series.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 22, 2011
even more self-regardingly postmodern than the earlier films, although Williamson is smart enough to include a gripping whodunnit frame to prevent viewers from becoming totally lost in his hall of mirrors.

It's great fun.

Made more for fans of the original than for new audiences, this installment has plenty of fun and horror goodness to please them while possibly picking up a handful of new converts.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

The Scream movies are generally thought of as horror-comedies, but one of the things that makes them such fun is the fact that they're also mysteries.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Like its predecessors, it's the horror movie for people who don't want to be on the edge of their seats throughout the whole film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

This fourth instalment will please the older fans of the series and should make some new ones amongst the audience who were too young to catch Scream on its first go round.

[They've] taken the ideas of the first film and twisted them in on themselves, using the technological advances of the last decade and society's celebrity-obsessed culture to give the series an invigorating kick.

Compared to director Wes Craven's previous horror outing, last year's unforgivably awful My Soul to Take, Scream 4 is one of the greatest horror movies ever made.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 22, 2011
The 'meta' cleverness of what may be the talkiest slasher film ever made may annoy viewers who prefer their scares straight, but the movie works as both a well-cast horror-comedy and a multiple-suspects mystery thriller...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Scre4m will please those who want the same old movie dressed up in Primark clothes.

April 20, 2011
Bright, bloody and enjoyable, and completely worth seeing when you stand back and look at what the filmmakers have done to subvert a beloved but played-out genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Scream 4 is thankfully a strong, if imperfect, return to form.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

This movie is going to have more than its fair share of detractors. I'm not one of them.
