Trivia

While scouting for a bookstore to use in the film, Wes Craven spotted a new bookstore that had not yet opened in downtown Northville, Michigan named Next Chapter Bookstore Bistro. Craven instantly loved the building as well as the name and decided to use both in the film. He also hired the owner's chef to prepare the food and pastry for a scene in the film. See more »

Fun, twisted fun!
16 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

To the younger generations of movie reviewers: Take the stick out of your ass before watching this movie! Thank you.

Scream is Wes Craven territory. It's comedy-horror, it's suppose to be twisted fun and that's what this is. Unlike the 3rd film, this didn't try to insult our intelligence with over-the-top gags and an overly serious ending. This film stayed very true to the first two films and yet, at the same time, did not feel like just another sequel. Having the ten years between really made this a one of a kind, intimate experience with these three unforgettable characters. The fear for their lives was as real as the first time we met Sidney, Gale and Dewey.

The entire films was and stayed tongue in cheek and for a sequel, it was just as refreshing as the original.

Hands down to directors like Sam Raimi, Robert Rodriquez and Wes Craven, for making horror movies fun!
