Scream 4 – Film Review

Returning to cinemas on Friday 15th April, sees the return of a horror franchise that started it all in Scream 4.

Over a decade after the series begun, Wes Craven returns working along side a bunch of recognisable faces, along with a fresh case in this long anticipated follow-up to 2000’s Scream 3.

Starring Courtney Cox, Neve Campbell, David Arquette and newcomer Emma Roberts, Scream 4 sees the return of masked serial killer Ghost face. Ten years have passed since Scream’s previous outing, and audiences see the return of Sidney Prescott (Campbell), who returns to her home town of Woodsboro on the 15th anniversary of the first Woodsboro murders, in celebration of her new book.

Whilst back in town, Sidney stumbles across former allies Sheriff ‘Dewey’ Riley (Arquette) and journalist Gale Weathers (Cox), along with her younger cousin Jill Roberts (Roberts) and several of Jill’s high school friends. However shortly after her arrival, the past she longs to forget comes back to haunt her when several people in the Woodsboro area start to relive the terrifying events mirrored more than a decade ago.

Returning to our screens in true modern form, Scream 4 looks set to offer plenty of scares that had audiences throughout on the edge of their seats during the previous three outings. Taking reference from horror-movie remakes, with specific twists on 21st-century horror, Craven’s latest project is the start of what will become the first of a new trilogy to the Scream collection.
