Scream 4 (2011)

So after many years of absence, the Ghostface Killer is back for yet another edition of the Scream saga. The fourth installment to be specific! Many people immediately disregarded the movie for it's poor advances especially in the third sequel, however, being a franchise with some potential and directed by horror master Wes Craven, you should always give the benefit of the doubt! 

Scream 4 (2011) comes in it's traditional Slasher form... well... to certain extent! 

You see... more than being an typical slasher movie, this one works out as more of a satirical film, that analyzes the development of the genre to our days, while paying homage to some of the great classics (with a lot of cultural references and trademark sequences), but also criticizing and pointing out some of the biggest flaws and cliches. But its a healthy criticism, as Scream 4 assumes itself to be one of that kind! Horror is not (at all) what this movie is about... It's not about making you jump out of your chair or to shock you with gruesomeness! Is in every shape in form a slasher as earlier mentioned, with a lot of killing, chills and thrills. That made this one a lot more fun to watch then the previous two...

Add to that the fact it gathers some of the original cast. Neve Campbell is back as Sidney Prescott, as well as Courtney Cox and David Arquette. Add to those names some other well known actors with significant relevance to the plot or just small participation and cameos. Hayden Panettiere, Adam Brody, Kristen Bell, Anna Paquin or Rory Culkin are among the list...

I've enjoyed this movie very much, especially the sharp dialogues that could either be tense or sense of humor, using sarcasm and naivety as it's key factor!
