Welcome back to Woodsboro: a spoiler-free review of Scream

1996 Screaming has been an emotion and is often credited with making horror movies (especially murders) popular again. It was so successful that it spawned four sequels and a movie series, and, unless you’ve spent the last year (for which no one can blame you), you know that the most recent sequel was released last week on Jan 14 .

I can clearly remember watching the original Screaming (inspired by a real sin) in December 1996. I’ve always been a nerd of horror, and hadn’t met a good killer in years at the time. About ten minutes into the movie, I felt excitement flutter in my stomach. This is a great horror movie! It’s fun, scary, smart, and funny. The murders are bloody and inventive, and the characters are great.

I’ve also enjoyed all the sequels and have seen the first of the series, so I was excited about the new sequel, especially since the “old gang” of Dewey, Sidney, and Gale were back. again. I have ventured to a theater for the fourth time in the past two years, looking forward to visiting Woodsboro again.

Like most trips back to your hometown, it’s a mixed bag. As with the last two times Halloween next part, Screaming 2022 packs a lot of nostalgia in the plot, which I appreciate. In addition to the divine trio of Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox, several other actors from Screamingin the past, come visit us (including a visit you might not expect to see), and pay tributes to Randy’s characters (who was killed in Screaming 2) and Tatum (Sidney’s best friend in the first film, remembered as being killed by the garage door).

We even revisited Stu’s house where there was a murder party for the first time Screaming. And some of the new characters have connections to some of the old gangs, so it’s clear that the filmmakers really want to reach out to fans of the series.

Does it work? Yes and no. The movie was at its best when Campbell, Arquette, and Cox were on screen, and I felt as though they didn’t get enough screen time. That might not be fair to me, because the newer characters are already well-acted; it’s just that most of them don’t really capture my interest.

Maybe it’s not fair to compare this with the original Screaming, but those characters are GOOD. Even nasty people are loved, and I don’t want them to die. Honestly, I don’t really mind that some of the new characters were killed or seriously injured by Devil face.

There’s just something warm and comforting about seeing our old friends again, now more mature and certainly wiser.

The plot goes back to Woodsboro where Tara (Jenna Ortega, always welcome addition to any movie) is called into the phone, and is then attacked by a man wearing a Ghostface mask. Her older sister Sam returns to town after running away a few years ago, and teams up with Tara’s friends Wes, Liv, Mindy, Amber and Chad to track down the killer, and some secrets. hidden is stirred.

Of course, this new killer is spreading the news, and Dewey, Gale, and Sidney rally an army to help; after all, they’ve played this game before. And of course, there were plenty of assaults and murders before the finale. The killings are bloody and brutal, and Ghostface takes a few hits along the way. It’s also fun to fall into the “this is going to be a big jump scare” trap over and over again, as we expect Ghostface’s iconic mask to be behind every door.

While in 1996 Screaming provided us with the rules for horror movies, this new version deals with modern terms like “fan fiction” and “enhanced horror”, with one of the characters favorite in horror movies is Babadook. I found that clever and amusing, and another call back to the original.

So even though I don’t think this is the strongest movie in Screaming franchise (that honor goes to the original), it’s still pretty cool to revisit Woodsboro and its early inhabitants. If you consider yourself a true fan of Screaming and its sequel, I also recommend you to watch this one.
