Goofs:
Continuity: The car chase is full of errors in continuity. The action switches back and forth from a single lane road to a double lane highway and at one point Keith overtakes a blue car ahead of him in the road to the right and the police car follows. A few shots later, Keith overtakes a brown car and the scene cuts to Supt. Bellaver saying, "All right, let's take him." We then cut to one of the two cars overtaking the blue car and not the brown one.See more »

Great atmosphere, great plot, fair otherwise, 24 December 2001
Author: silversprdave (davefranu@aol.com) from Washington DC suburb

'Scream and Scream Again' is one of my favorites, even though it is ratherly poorly put together. The director tried to make the movie mysterious -- and succeeded too well, making it nearly incomprehensible. However, if you have patience, the final explanation at the end will tie enough of the film together to make rewarding sense.

The main attraction for this movie is its subtle atmosphere of horror. The movie mainly consists of fragmented images that come to gether to paint a darker picture than just what the movie shows. A good example of the texture and flavor of the film is the scene which, to my disappointment, was removed from the version I rented (I originally saw the film in a college Halloween movie festival). A coroner while alone investigating the death of a lovely women begins to move forward as if to kiss the corpse but is interrupted by the inspector entering the room. The surprised coroner quickly straightens up and tries to look very official and busy, but obviously is upset at having almost been caught being amorous to the corpse. No further reference was made to the scene.

This is an example of the extremely dark and upsetting images that lie just beneath the surface of the film. It is unfortunate that the director's attempt to involve the audience by making them work hard to piece together fragments of action into something comprehensible was mostly unsuccessful. Still, I think the film is worth the patience. My rating: 8 of 10.
