Director: Wes Craven
Stars: Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette
It has been 15 years since horrormeister Wes Craven and satiric scripter Kevin Williamson first teamed up to reinvent the slasher flick and produced the original Scream.
It succeeded in spades by slicing and dicing the genre’s clichés.
Now comes Scream 4, which hits the mute button on this once-great notion. The sardonic laughs are mostly gone in this wheezing cash cow. The greatest shocks are the ones facing the now middle-aged main actors when they look in the mirror.
