Is Scream 4 worth your time and hard earned money?
The Hollywood Reporter has weighed in with a review of the fourth installment in the franchise.
Here’s a sample of what they have to say:
Individual scenes have passing energy and jokiness, even if nearly all of the latter is highly insular in the way it self-consciously references horror genre tropes and the series’ own history. But the narrative doesn’t build the way it should in a good suspense film; just as it seems that the climax has arrived in a big Stab-A-Thon night at which dozens of horror geeks have congregated to watch the series while Ghostface is on a new tear through town, the film downshifts as it prepares to string out the last series of murders as long as it can before the final revelations (not bad) about who’s behind the mask this time and why.
