An awesome end to the greatest horror series ever!
11 December 2001 | by (Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA) – See all my reviews

First of all, if you think I'm some twelve-year-old who thinks "Scream" is the greatest horror series ever, you're wrong. I'm a twenty-three-year-old who thinks "Scream" is the greatest horror series ever. The first two films in the series were excellent, with the original being the best horror film of all-time, and the third brings the series to a great finish. The final chapter of the trilogy takes a lot of crap from moviegoers all over the planet, but "Scream 3" is an excellent film.

I love the fact that they left the school setting from the first two. "Scream" took place in high school and "Scream 2" took place in college, mainly because there is so much horror to parody from those two areas. It is no secret that K-Will looks very highly upon teens, so with him out of the picture, the series could cover new ground. One, they would finish with the third film to complete a rare horror trilogy, and two, the film takes place on the set of a film based on the "real-life" events of Woodsboro. This creates a movie within the movie storyline that proves effective. The film doesn't really improve upon the deaths, but the characters introduced in this film are an improvement on the characters from the second film. Well, at least Parker Posey's "Jennifer Jolie" was. Anyway, a solid story is developed around the set of the film and the actors in "Stab 3."

All of the loose ends from the first two are tied up with the revelation of the final Ghostface. They chose the best character to play Ghostface, and the selection makes the choices from "Scream 2" make a little more sense.

Returning stars include David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Liev Schreiber, and the voluptuous Neve Campbell, and Jamie Kennedy's "Randy" makes a special appearance from beyond the grave, but none of those stars even compare to Parker Posey, Indie Queen and the breakout star of the film. Her performance was the single best performance of the series, and it is her work in "Scream 3" that enables me to give the movie a perfect score.

"Scream 3" ends the best horror series of all time and is another individually excellent film in the trilogy. "Scream 3" receives **** and Parker Posey deserves to be a headliner. She is incredibly talented and extremely attractive.
