SCREAM 4

Wes Craven’s recent horror movies have made one thing perfectly clear: he needs to win fans back, and soon. What started off as exciting quickly took the route of disappointing, relying too heavily on nostalgia than exploring any new and interesting territory. The Franchise’s biggest draw is the audience’s development of a list of suspects and, as the movie progresses, the narrowing of your list makes it perfectly clear that the pay-off will be as terrible as the film’s being branded a re-boot.  My Soul to Take and now Scream 4 have certainly set Craven back a few steps and sends the message that perhaps the veteran horror director is losing steam.
