Ratings & Reviews

  • For genre geeks, this can be fun - although nothing in Scream 4 is quite as clever as the filmmakers seem to think it is. show more

  • The generational mix of actors works well enough, although Campbell too often seems stranded with little to do until the climax. show more

  • Between a diabolically funny start and a surprise climax, Scream 4 offers nothing more than a series of gory deaths that grow tiresome with repetition. The rating is a hard R, but Craven and Williamson keep it soft at its core. "Scream 1" is still the only keeper. show more
