Scream Yet Again
4 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

*No Spoilers*

Sidney, Dewey, and Gale are back together yet again for another fight with Ghostface. The survivors of the Woodsburrow murders are back, but this time they may not all make it. The Scream movies have been revamped, and this fresh take brings a loaded young cast together for more blood and more gore. Wes Craven brilliantly rewrites the rules on the horror genre yet again, and makes you doubt all you thought you knew about scary movies. Goosebumps and chills will overcome you as you attempt to unravel the identity of the Ghostface killer. But "he unexpected is the new cliché'", so don't try to analyze it, just sit back and enjoy the ride. There are twists, there are turns, and only one things is certain: you better be ready to scream.
