Scream 4 (2011)
Movie Review by The Mortician

Scream 4 (2011) Wow, it's hard to believe this one was made back in 2011, time just flies, doesn't it? And so sad that it is Wes Craven's final film, since he passed away in 2015 from cancer. But it's great to see that his last film was such a high note in the SCREAM franchise- upon re-viewing this movie, it holds up as great entertainment! To me, it's the best in the series other than the original film. Sidney Prescott (played by a really good-looking Neve Campbell, who is aging not at all!) is back in her home town, pimping her new book about surviving harsh times...like the first three SCREAM films and all their murders. She's re-united with her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) and her teenage friends and of course Dewey and Gale and all the survivors of the first three films when the Ghostface murders begin to happen again---taunting Sidney and attacking Jill's family and friends. Sidney tries to protect her cousin, but all bets are off this time on who will live or die! Although the attack with a knife and gore scenes in this episode are pretty routine this time around, the story still holds together, there's great use of all of today's fun technologies in the murder scenes (like texting, Facebook, social media, etc.) and cast and crew look like they're having a great time being back in action. You can really feel the joy behind the making of this film, especially from Craven, who holds everything together in a tight, suspenseful reign as director. Kevin Williamson's script works great and the twist ending- loved it, and came out of left field for me, very unpredictable! All in all, the thrills and chills and funhouse ride work like a charm, and the new teens being stalked are realistic and super-fun to watch, so had a great time with this episode. Again, a great high note for Craven to go out on if he had to go, this is the stuff he will be remembered for, his legacy, and it will live on for years to come. Again, though, it's hard to do much different in the slash genre these days, I mean, how many different ways can you stab someone, so as good as this movie is, I just don't see where it can be taken from here in the future. Will be interesting to watch the cycle of parodies and remakes as the genre struggles to reinvent itself again- but without masters like Craven, it's hard to tell if it will ever be as good as it has been in the past.
