    Well-directed kills and cute meta-commentary don't excuse idiotic story beats and corny puns and dialogue. Not terrible, but don't believe the hype. 2 years 5 months ago

    I have never not been entertained by a Scream movie, and that doesn't change with 2022's requel. Even though we see all the old familiar faces, Melissa Barrera (In the Heights) is well set-up to be the next Sidney Prescott (with a twist), and like Scream 4, the meta-commentary is of the moment. What's it like to be a horror fan today, plus a take-down of fan culture that extends beyond the horror genre. This Scream recharges the franchise by consistently commenting on what it is doing and how it fits in tropes and techniques used in other revivals, and the humor lands well, definitely a lot of giggles. It's not quite as strong with dramatic delivery, I admit. Scream movies are also meant to be crazy whodunits, and I think this one works pretty logically (there's one decision I question, but it has nothing to do with the mystery). So I think Wes Craven, who is very much eulogized in this, would have been happy with it. It definitely has the vibe of the previous films, while also modernizing the formula, giving the legacy characters a lot to do, but still building a memorable new cast for whatever sequels they want to include in this new cycle. 2 years 5 months ago

    You will get everything You would expect from a Scream movie:

    + Ghostface and knives
    + scary phone calls
    + multiple horror movie references
    + fun discussions what should happen next in a typical horror movie

    Top quality acting and directing so this is not just a copy. Good to see old characters back and even some scenes are exactly as in the first Scream.
