Rated R · 112 minutes · 2011

Although it is a slight improvement over the terrible Scream 3, the fourth installment in Wes Craven’s oh-so-clever horror series is still a drag. Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) returns home on the anniversary of the Woodsboro murders for what winds up being another Scooby-Doo-like mystery. This is a routine horror slog that brings nothing new to the party, and by the time the killer is revealed, the film is just laughable. There is lots of stabbing, lots of puking blood, and very little to involve your mind. This one did not do well at the box office during the opening weekend, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the last time we have to watch one of these things.

The Coast Halifax Bloody, funny Scream 4 Rule number one: there are no rules in the latest Scream installment. A Facebook-savvy murderer reenacts the serial stabbings of the first Ghostface Killer when Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell) returns to Woodsboro as a bestselling author. Updating the cultural allusions, director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson round up the original Scream team in this nostalgic comedy/horror movie. It’s right at home with the trilogy, despite the lapse of a decade---horror movie references and disemboweled bodies to boot. And where it lacks the low-budget kitsch of the original, it lives up to the humour of its predecessors. But the “self-aware post-modern meta shit,” to quote the movie, finally becomes overbearing---the joke runs thin when explained too many times. –Molly Segal by Molly Segal 04/16/2011
