REVIEW I'm not the type of person to see horror flicks. Actually, I hate them. But strangely enough, I love reading about the premise of horror flicks. It sounds lame, but when a buzzy horror movie comes out, I want to read about the storyline that everyone is talking about. Well, the more and more I kept reading about the Scream movies, the more enticing I found them. I ended up marathoning the first three Scream's back to back to back last weekend. At that point, I couldn't not go out and see this movie.
Of course, I knew about everything that was going to happen with all 4 movies since I read into them. I sort of regret doing that, but at the same time, I wouldn't have gotten so enticed if I hadn't read into the plots of all movies.
Anyway, as for Scream 4 (or SCRE4M), I would rank this on par with the first two. For all Scream fans, we all know that that the third one is definitely the worst one. But the fourth one makes up for it. The franchise was originially written as a trilogy and only a trilogy, but after 11 years after Scream 3, this one didn't feel out of place. The plot actually felt believable -- well, as believe as a horror movie can get. And the performances are pretty solid.
My suggestion? Definitely go see it if you're ever in the mood. Just watch the first one before going, at least. I would watch all three, but the first one is the most necessary.
