Scream ★★

The Scream franchise has become trapped within its own meta-ness. It’s stale and predictable; I guessed the killer early on. It’s once sharp meta commentary has become a dull echo, getting weaker with every new sequel.

I’d love for the franchise to do something radical, like going full New Nightmare and putting the Scream movie and its real life cast at the centre of a movie. There’s so much history with the franchise and between the cast. It would be a gold mind.
