Gotta be a Scream fan to enjoy...but I liked it
16 April 2011 | by ecjones1104See all my reviews

I will say, Scream 4 was pretty generic, you saw certain things coming a mile away, but I still loved Scream 4, as I loved Scream 1-3 before it. I'm glad the movie contained the original cast, and the regulars were still their normal old selves.(Won't go further into that one) Honestly, even though I was a fan I really hope they don't make a fifth. This specific type of horror movie is in the past, and just doesn't keep up to pace with the genre anymore. I wish that the fourth movie hadn't been made at all, just in that the third gave a plausible ending and a motion that the characters themselves were ready to move on. I don't think the plot of Scream 4 was good enough to compete with that.
