The humor here is derived from slapstick and caricatures and the occasional semi-entertaining cameo rather than witty self-awareness.

If Scream was like a funny joke, Scream 2 was like somebody telling you, 'here's how I heard that joke,' and Scream 3 is like somebody who won't believe you've already heard it.

Unfortunately, there's nothing here that even the most inexperienced horror film fan would call innovative, and the predictable result is a movie that pales in comparison with its predecessors.

A hollow and pointless retread. Wasn't the first film a satire of this stuff?

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.

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

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.

A lame retread.

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

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...

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

Scream 3 is like the party guest who stayed too long and wore out his welcome.

The franchise has officially run out of scream -- er, steam.

The minute Kevin Williamson said no to writing Scream 3, that should have been the end of it.

Es justo y necesario que en aras de mantener el éxito que hasta ahora ha tenido la serie, el asesino de la máscara se apuñale a sí mismo

Wes Craven's tongue in Scream 3 appears to have completely missed his cheek and is sticking out at the audience.

Wes Craven já brincou com este tipo de história - muito melhor, diga-se de passagem - em 'O Novo Pesadelo: O Retorno de Freddy Krueger'.
