Scream 3 is a fine ending to the trilogy. The teen horror franchise that ate itself.
September 7, 2011
Tthe movie belabors the idea that it's the last of a trilogy rather than the third in a series.
May 20, 2011
Merely adheres to the very convoluted whodunit formula that it outwardly addresses via a from-the-grave video recording by Jamie Kennedy's genre know-it-all.

The self-referential setup is in place, but not the ingenuity or wit to take advantage of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 4, 2011
...a rather anticlimactic finish to a series that started out with such promise...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 24, 2011
A limp movie-within-a-movie parody that closed the trilogy with a fizzle instead of the bang it deserved.

An embarrassing carbon copy of its previous films...

End (hopefully) to the hit slasher saga.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 8, 2009
Missing from the third installment are many of original scribe Kevin Williamson's self-referential genre jokes and a lot of his energetic bravura.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 10, 2009
A bad slasher movie, made by a talented man who brought hardly a one of his talents to bear.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
March 26, 2009
Scream 3 is a crafty and well-crafted wrap-up that really does bring a satisfying sense of closure to the franchise.
August 7, 2008
A truly tired sequel.

August 18, 2007
The other Scream films were also tricky and convoluted, but I don't remember them playing like the WB version of Murder, She Wrote, as Scream 3 too often does.

There is nothing particularly clever to make all the bloodshed -- and time spent in the theater -- worth it.

Craven has produced a poor carbon copy of his own New Nightmare.
November 20, 2003
Ultimately, this is the question: How often can you send up the same thing? By a series' third film, you should actually care about characters. It's hard, though, when the odds are that everyone's either a killer or a goner.
May 22, 2003
I hope to forget about this one's existence quickly. It pains me to think of a superb franchise hitting relative rock bottom.
February 8, 2003
Wes Craven should have quit when he was ahead.

December 8, 2002
A pretty funny gore-fest that delivers the goods with a few new twists.

The new movie strays pretty far from the original idea -- that the Scream characters are horror-movie savvy.
