Trivia

In this film, Deputy Hoss, played by Adam Brody, laments that it "sucks to be a cop in a movie unless you're Bruce Willis". One year prior to the release of this film, Brody co-starred (as a cop, ironically) alongside Willis in Cop Out (2010). See more »

Goofs

When Charlie shows Sydney the footage of Ghostface stabbing the girl in her bed on the cellphone, it completely contradicts the earlier shot of Jill removing the camera from the 1st person perspective from inside the mask. See more »

I really liked Scream 4
13 April 2011 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

I recently saw the movie Scream 4. I really liked it. Coming in to the movie, I was like "Well, how many sequels have been any good?" But I really liked this movie. The movie had great suspense with intense twists and turns. This movie will take you through all kinds of emotions. You'll laugh. You'll cringe. You'll jump out of your seat. Everything. There is one scene in particular that will probably give you nightmares for a while. The cast was awesome. A great blend of young future stars and seasoned veterans. Kudos to Wes Craven and everybody involved with this movie for doing such a good job. I really liked this movie and I think that you'll like it too. I highly recommend this movie.
