Courtney Cox's face is scarier than the killer's mask.

I wonder why they opted for a January release? I suppose that date puts it closest to its 25th anniversary, but not in December like the original.

I always figured that one or both would have died in Part 3 had Neve's schedule not basically forced them to make the two of them the main characters.

There are spoilers on reddit.

Scream and Halloween are both trying to pass the baton to the younger generation. Time will tell if they are successful. It'll be hard to beat Laurie Strode and Sydney Prescott.

I loved the first half of the trailer and seeing Neve again. But they revealed too much. The locking/unlocking of the doors was creepy but why reveal it?

And they should have built up Neve's return until the end.

Courtney's face looks better than it did in 4. Arquette's gotten old but it might suit the character and everything he's been through.

I was hoping at the end of Scream 4 that Emma's character (even though I HATED her in this movie) would get away with it and the sequel would have been about copycat killers going after her character. It would have been a subversive spin but, nope, we got that bullshit 'tagged on' ending where Gale and Sydney both survive. Also, Hayden Panittiere (msp?) was terrific in 4 and should have been saved for the reboot.

From what I understand, you can't trust this trailer. They shot a lot of extra footage to throw people off and there are multiple endings.

Ok Scream 4 was supposed to reboot the franchise and pass the torch onto the younger crowd, but Cox/Arquette refused to die and Campbell was willing but they didn’t want Sidney dead yet.

It then flopped at the box office so that killed all steam.

Then they tried with a tv show. Didn’t work.

Let’s see if this time it works.

The original was also a surprise sleeper hit.

People forget that the slasher genre was dead by the time Scream came, and the movie debuted with only $6 million at the BO. Word of mouth made it slowly grow and it ended up being a hit and cultural phenomenon.

I remember everyone was speaking about the opening scene, which seemed to terrify and/or shock people. My mother included. She thought she would hate the movie but took us to see it (we loved horror) and the opening shocked her. She couldn’t stop speaking about that after to my stepfather and her friend on the phone.

She didn’t care for the rest of it as much.

by Anonymousreply 88October 19, 2021 2:33 AM

IMO Scream doesn't get the buzz/numbers that Halloween does because Scream is the same damn movie every time. Halloween has had some variation with Jamie Lee Curtis dropping out of the franchise for a period of years, long enough for people to miss her, and then creating some new stuff. First she was Mother Laurie, and now she's Granny Laurie. Jamie Lloyd was a good main character for a couple of movies, too. Sidney Prescott hasn't aged, doesn't appear to be traumatized, etc. Maybe she's an android?

Neve Campbell has survived all four Scream movies and I'm sure she'll survive this one, too. We already know it, and we know that she'll be back for more because NC has to build her retirement fund. Zzzzzzzz. Killing off Dewey or Gale won't necessarily add to or detract from the franchise. What will they call subsequent films, if there are any? Scream Again? Still Screaming? NC was on Party of Five and was already something of a name when she made the first movie. I don't see any of the younger characters being able to carry the franchise like that.

Scream 2 was a good sequel and one that mostly made sense (Billy's mom wanted revenge and hired someone to help her). Scream 3 and 4 were unnecessary. They should have stopped after 2 and then waited until they had a solid idea to go forward. But people wanted to make some fast, easy money...

by Anonymousreply 89October 19, 2021 2:36 AM

Yes, the Drew scene was iconic and considered one of the greatest horror scenes in a slasher film by many horror filmmakers/screen writers etc.

I know there was a luncheon with tons of the screenwriters and directors etc. who’ve done horror films a few years ago, and there was a vote of what is the greatest direct sequel to a horror film (meaning the second film, not a third etc.) and they voted Psycho 2, to many’s surprise. That one won. But Scream 2 was one of the other most voted.

by Anonymousreply 90October 19, 2021 2:36 AM

Idk why people always compare this and Halloween. Halloween originated the genre and came out 18 years before Scream.

Scream revived the genre and changed it, but Halloween is the main bitch here.

Sidney's family & close friends:

-Murdered (mom, aunt, two best friends, college boyfriend, incel movie buff friend)

-Unceremoniously dead off-screen (dad)

-Murderer who tried to kill her and killed many friends/loved ones in the process (cousin, half-brother)

I actually thought the preview looks good. The comedy and humor was fun with Scream, but I like that they are taking it in a darker direction for the reboot. Darker times. Never actually looks great. Whatever she had done looks natural. Courtney Cock doesn't look so bad either. Dave Arquette, who I love both personally and professionally, looks rough. He's had some hard years.

by Anonymousreply 97October 19, 2021 2:56 AM

So, do the spoilers say the trio lives?

Scream was always meant to be fun. 2,3 & 4 were fun. 4 should have had a better opening waiting so long. That was why it didn’t get better word of mouth. You wait that long for a sequel it better have a great opening and better killer. Also, it came out in April which was stupid. An Oct release would have made it more money.

Looking back Scream 3 is a bit of a strange film. It's all over the place. Miramax/the Weinsteins interfered a lot. Neve could only film on certain days so she wasn't in the film for certain portions. Apparently Miramax wanted more humour which would explain Parker Posey (thank God, though, since she was very funny).

For a director as respected as Wes Craven was, he had to deal with a lot of problems from studios trying to reshape his films.

I like that Scream doesn’t kill off the 3 amigos. It doesn’t appear any of them are in this one for long. Keep them alive and allow them to pass the baton.

Someone above mentioned "charisma-free", and I have to agree. So many younger actors now are indistinguishable from each other too. In these movies of this type we grew up with, Neve Campbell, Sarah Michelle Geller, Skeet Ulrich, etc. etc. etc. they all had something distinguishable about them. They weren't even all good actors (ahem, Freddie Prinze Jr), but you wouldn't sit there going: "Which one is that again?"

I've got bad vibes over this latest installment. It doesn't have that Wes Craven feel to it, he's sorely missed.

I just watched Scream 2 tonight for the first time since I first saw it in 1999. It was very enjoyable, more than I was expecting. Lots of big names in it and was very funny, I laughed a lot. Also had some very good setpieces. The opening of this one was really good, and it must've been hard to do when up against the classic of the first film.

Also just watching it I thought: "this is a fun horror movie". I appreciated that very much, you don't seem to see a lot of fun ones these days.

Speaking of Scream 2, what references did it have in it to older films. I thought there was a reference to Final Exam, the Slumber Party Massacre, and [italic]maybe[/italic]Pieces. Oh, and the first Friday the 13th too. But I'm not as well versed in the history.

That's why these remakes like Black Christmas, The Craft, Charmed, etc. I just don't care about these characters or performers because they have no charisma, no personality and the films/shows look like they have no creativity or vision behind them. The films look drab and dull. They don't have a Wes Craven or Bob Clark to guide them and provide visual flairs and direct the actors to stand out.

The Charmed remake has been an absolute disaster and of course they lost one of their lead's after 3 seasons. The Craft sequel was just stupid. What was the point of having a trans character? Or making one of the guys bi and then killing him off 🙄

When I watched Scream 2 the other night, I noticed how even just random scenes like Dewey and Gail talking as they met up again were fun and entertaining, like you could see how much everyone was just enjoying making the film. It's hard to say why exactly, but it's that quality I find missing in a lot of film.

These hybrid sequel-reboot movies please no one. Either continue the story with Neve and Courtney and some new folks (sequel) or do it all over again with new people (reboot) but when you try to please both old and young audiences (Ghostbusters, Star Wars) everyone complains.

It's like the new L Word, where no one I know is interested in the new cast, we just turn in to see Bette, Shane and Alice.

by Anonymousreply 152December 6, 2021 6:02 PM

Agree they’ll never find actors who connect and are as memorable as Neve, Courteney, David….That’s why I think it is a shame to kill any of them off.

by Anonymousreply 153December 6, 2021 9:38 PM

r153, I think the problem with that is the budget: Neve, Courtney, and David earn a lot of money and even get a cut from the profits, that means there's not much money left to get some up and coming cast with established name recognition. So the producers roll the dice and hope for the best, casting no-names who might give such great performances that the viewers like them and turn them into stars.

Also, an audience is less likely to connect with newbies when the old are still around and get all the good scenes while the new ones are bland, glorified extras.

Scream 4 should have worked. The casting was good. I’m not sure why it didn’t. I think they gave Gale, shockingly, the weakest part. She’s a franchise favorite. She had a few good scenes and that was it. I think it had a few too many stupid kills. I still find it enjoyable.

Screenwriter Kevin Williamson just chimed in recently stating that he feels the Scream series definitely have gay undertones to them.

A second trailer has also recently been "leaked" or prematurely aired on Youtube. A few people caught it and recorded it then shared it on there. In it, we're shown someone wearing a metallic version of the classic Ghostface mask as well - not sure what that's supposed to mean, other than perhaps there will be multiple Ghostface's in this one as well.

R159. But she wasn’t a bad choice and there were others who were good choices. Kirby and Alison are two huge examples. I think the kills were just boring and bad. Nobody wants to see the 3 AMIGOS die. But they’ll kill one of all. Stupid.

by Anonymousreply 160December 7, 2021 11:10 AM

4 has its bright spots and the killer's motive seems more relevant now than it was a decade ago. It's just that it felt unnecessary and never really very suspenseful, scary, or all that funny.

How am I the first queen to see this?

Yes, it’s not great. Scenes with the lead actress just die on screen. She has no presence. Neve Campbell was never a great actress but she had a vulnerability and strangeness that made her compelling to watch. Say what you will about the Weinsteins, they never would’ve let this movie get to release with a central star that shitty.

The supporting cast is hit or miss. Jack Quaid is great, as is Jasmin Savoy Brown who plays Taissa on Yellowjackets. There’s a character named Liv who is the most overbearing character since Tina in Halloween 5. The less said about Mikey Madison the better.

The trio are barely in this and clearly don’t have their heart in it. It’s a paycheck job through and through.

The direction is actually pretty good. The opening and the finale are well executed. The kills are intense and creative. That’s where the benefit of a fresh set of eyes comes in…but it ends there. They lack the experience and craft of even the shittiest Wes Craven movie.

The screenplay has some good jokes but the plotting and the characters and the serious dialogue is just awful and nowhere in the league of the other films. The motive is very generic too. (MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD) There are two killers as usual. One is pretty solid and somewhat saves the movie — I’d rank them above Mickey and Charlie — but the other turns in an awful, amateurish performance post reveal that is totally out of character from these films and I’d rank them dead last after Charlie in terms of Ghostfaces (END SPOILERS)

Dylan Minnette has an extended shower scene that provides more male eye candy than the series has ever shown so I’m sure all you fairies will love that.

All in all, you might enjoy it if you’re new to the series but if you’re a long term fan, the drop in quality is noticeable.

This already makes me apprehensive. I saw Halloween 5 for the first time only a few weeks ago and I was [italic]aching[/italic] for Tina to die, she was so fucking annoying ("Tina" is also a REALLY annoying name to have other characters scream over and over again).

R176, I wouldn’t make or break your decision to see it based on her. The characterization is very slim this time around. She doesn’t dominate the edit. But when she is around, she’s very obnoxious.

I read on Wikipedia that this is her first role and her father is a European film investor so her casting makes more sense now.
