Scream 4 new trailer… Anna Paquin

By Scott Mendelson Shouldn’t there be a regulation in Woodsboro against Sydney Prescott returning to town around or on the anniversary of the original 1996 massacre? Oh, and most people don’t buzz in before before the entire question is read off on Family Feud, let alone when a psychotic killer is quizzing you over the phone. This is a slightly more stylish and entertaining trailer than the generic teaser that was released late last year. There is a token amount of witty dialogue, everyone looks awfully pretty, and the film seems to be advertising a healthy body count. But, in the end, this doesn’t look any less like the desperate cash-in that it probably is. And BOO on the seemingly major spoiler at 1:15, although said performer was obviously far too busy with a lead role on the best comedy on TV and a supporting role on the best drama on TV to join the Scream franchise on a regular basis.

And the arbitrary new rules seem just that: arbitrary. Why must the killer record his murders this time around? Can you think of more than one or two horror movies offhand in the last ten years that involved the villain recording his killings (I can’t think of any)? Referencing the Internet doesn’t make your movie ‘hip’ or ‘fresh’. And ‘expect the unexpected’ is not the new cliche, it’s merely the mark of any decent horror picture.

    Actually, there have been plenty of films where killers film the murders. (The Last Horror Movie, Alone With Her, Murder Set Pieces) They don’t have to be good horror movies or well known horror movies, but they are still horor movies that have come out in the last 10 years. Also, Saw 2 reveals that he has the people he’s captured on cameras, so that also counts. And they say that he should filming the murders because it’s trying to make fun of all the shaky cam mockumentary films that have been released in the last decade.
