We all know that movie cliché where the girl bumps into her ex at the supermarket and is totally embarrassed and falls over and makes a damn fool out of herself. But what about when you are offered a part in a film only to find out that acting right opposite is your old “racket buddy”?
Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson bring together a cast of new and returning faces for one more stab at the post-modern Scream franchise. With an abundance of recent horror history ripe for the picking, they succeed beautifully in rebooting the formula while staying true to the mission statement that started it all.
With the fourth installment in Wes Craven’s Scream saga due next year, it seemed that this franchise – like its protagonist, Sidney Prescott – would not be one easily killed off. And now it appears that its life has been prolonged even more, with the director openly admitting that screenwriter, Kevin Williamson, launched this latest film with a second trilogy in mind.
