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.

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.
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.
October 11, 2011
Scream 4 bucks the horror trend by retaining a level of quality rarely seen this many sequels in to a series.

It's great fun.
June 9, 2011
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.
May 27, 2011
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.

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.
May 16, 2011
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.
