The best thing about New Scream It all knows.
It knows you’re skeptical. It’s the fifth film in a franchise. It makes you wonder why the title is just “no”.Scream 5“ To maintain continuity. It knows that thanks to streaming / internet / movies like the first one Scream, 2022 viewers are much more aware of the film than 1996. And, most importantly, it knows that after 11 years away (Scream 4 Released in 2011), And 11 more before that (Scream 3 Released in 2000), Scream The big screen might not be the powerhouse that once was and it is It’s good to do something new to keep yourself relevant. Whether or not it succeeds at the last point is of course a matter of debate but we are happy to report that it provides a way to be wonderful and clever for the above and many more. Add lots of devilish mysteries and lots of horror Horror, And the fifth Scream A worthy addition to the popular suffrage.
The Scream The franchise was created by original author Kevin Williamson who is back this time as an executive producer. Unfortunately, his accomplice in the crime, the legendary director Wes Craven (who directed the previous four movies), Died in 2015. S.Craven’s irreplaceable shoes are Matt Betinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillette, two-thirds Film making group called Radio Silence. They are best known for their 2019 films Ready or not, One of those self-conscious movies Scream Each hole in its DNA makes the pair a better fit. There was a screenplay By James Vanderbilt (The zodiac) And Guy Busick (Ready or not), What do you mean? Scream Originally a movie by a team Scream Fans movie with an important member of Williamson’s past. It’s a ratio and norm that also carries on screen.
Although it is a secret Nev Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette re-established their roles as Sydney, Gail, and Dewey, respectively, making up about 20% of the plot. The main plot revolves around Sam (At height‘Melissa Barrera), a young woman who came out of the infamous town of Woodsborough after high school for mysterious reasons. She and her boyfriend Richie (The boys‘Jack Quaid) came back though when Sam’s sister Tara (Jane the VirginIts starring Jenna Ortega) and her friends (Dylan Minette) 13 Reasons Why, Of Jasmine Savvy Brown Yellow jacket, Mason Gooding Off Booksmart, And Mikey Madison’s Once upon a time in Hollywood) Begins to panic by Ghostface.
Even right there you see how this is Scream Proceed from the previous ones. Cast delightfully varied, Which gives the 2022 Woodsboro a more modern, realistic, relational feel. This is not the same place where Billy and Stu were horrified in the first movie and as a result, Ghostface may and will appear in places where we are not accustomed to Ghostface. Show or show. Managers also make great use of the uncertainty, intimidating them where we don’t expect them to and faking them out where we are. Other times, that flips. Throughout the movie there is a necessary, welcome, uncomfortable feeling as the rules have changed at this time. Of course, they really aren’t. Ghostface is still going to show people and brutally kill, but still, the film has a groundedness that links it closer to the original rather than sequels. Deaths are horrendous and increasingly brutal, not to mention in that joke Horrible-The movie way.
Like all previous installments, most Scream Ghostface is about finding out who and why they are killing all these people. At various points throughout the movie, you will swear that you have realized this, only to change completely after one scene. In fact, after watching the film, I was convinced that I realized that I had written a name and an explanation in my notes so that I could understand “Ha! Understood!” All my friends. As it turns out, I was very, very wrong.
However, here’s the way Scream Really sets himself apart from the rest. In this film, I argue that the motives for the murder are more interesting and predatory than the identity of the killer. Seriously. I could tell you (but I won’t tell!) Who the killers are and you must be wondering but if I tell you why he / she / they are doing it, you will be equal More Surprised and stunned. It’s all wrapped up this way Scream As well as paying homage to the franchise’s past, 2022 is a film that seems to be deeply related. Don’t worry, it’s not political or anything, but you can argue about it when you walk out of the theater. It’s like politics. This potential division and the desire to engage the audience in such an open, direct way is, I think, the greatest gift of the film. However, it must also be his biggest offense. Some people are really going to be annoyed, which is exactly the point.
Along the way, the new cast really feels like a confined house Scream Movies. Barrera’s Sam is capable and confident while providing zero fucks on almost everything. Savvy Brown and Gooding are unique, fun twins playing with each other Throat but there is that special sibling love that is always under the surface. Quaid is always perfect as a suspicious lover and sympathetic as the minutes are sweet. Everyone is great, right down the line.
It also goes for the original cast. Although they have little to do at this point, Campbell, Cox and Arquette improve the movie whenever they are on screen. Part of that is how the script moves the characters forward, not just since Scream 4, But all the way back to the roots, and part of it is a vague level of comfort. Campbell and Cox are about 10 years worse this time around, coming to the movies and just falling in with skill and class. But it is Arquette in particular, who will have to play a more complex duo here, That ultimately stole the show.
Scream A worthy, horrible, bloody addition to the franchise. It plays with your expectations in a way that keeps you guessing from start to finish and goes into the pockets of pop culture that you almost certainly don’t expect but make perfect sense of. You may like it, you may hate it, but if you are a fan of the series you can appreciate it because you are laughing and rejoicing.
I saw io9 Scream At a low-capacity press screening at a movie theater, the necessary vaccinations and health forms must be filled out first. We understand that not everyone will have that option and we urge you to stay as safe as possible if you want to go to the theater. Scream Only opens in theaters on Fridays but Paramount + will be available 45 days later.
