FILM REVIEW: Scre4m
Share This Article:
Scream 4 (or Scre4m) revisits Woodsboro where Sidney Prescott has returned to promote a self help book written about her past experiences. No prizes for guessing, the homecoming doesn’t go exactly as planned and with Sidney, returns the infamous Ghostface killer back to slice and dice a whole new cohort of unrealistically attractive teenagers. Scream is back: same franchise, new generation, smarter twist. The same old faces are still around, Courtney Cox as retired reporter Gale Weathers, David Arquette as Sheriff Dewey and Neve Campbell puts in another undeniably strong performance as the eternally unlucky Sidney Prescott. But this time we are introduced to a whole host of fresh faces, including the incredibly watchable Emma Roberts (Julia Roberts niece who obviously inherited some of her aunt’s acting magic) Hayden Pannetierre, fresh from playing Amanda Knox and Maculay Culkin’s cousin (and lookalike) Rory Culkin, who serves as one half of the horror fanatic geeky duo, Charlie and Robbie who provide some of the best moments and many of the hundreds of movie references that Scre4m is stuffed full of.
