Movie Summary

Director:
Wes Craven
Released:
2011
Rating:
R
The original star-studded cast reunites a decade later in this spine-chilling fourth installment of the $300M-grossing Scream franchise. Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell of THE CRAFT), now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette of NEVER BEEN KISSED) and Gale (Courtney Cox of TV's FRIENDS), who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts of VALENTINE'S DAY) and her Aunt Kate. Unfortunately Sidney's appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends (including Hayden Panettiere of TV's HEROES), and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger. Legendary director Wes Craven (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) "guides us expertly down a series of blind, bloody alleys" (Slate Magazine)

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    The kills themselves are both bountiful and bloody, the movie references are brilliant and bloody, the funny is very frequent and very frequently bloody, but to say any more would ...

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    The picture delivers enough of the expected goods, if seldom with the wit or panache of the series' best.

  • 40

    The New York Times Mike Hale

    The central conceit of the characters' fates being determined by the "rules" of horror movies feels irredeemably tired; a clever idea that was worth one movie.
