Scream ★★★★½

HORRORx52: 2022 Edition
A horror film released in 2022!

Arguably the best installment in the series since the original, Scream works beautifully as a meta slasher in its own right, with viciously gruesome death scenes, fantastic performances, fun characters, slick cinematography, and razor-sharp dialogue, but beyond that, it’s also a wickedly spot-on satire of toxic, entitled fandom and Hollywood’s recent obsession with franchise remake/sequel-hybrids, and best of all, it’s a loving tribute to not just the late great Wes Craven’s prior work on the franchise but also his body of work in general as well as the legacy he left behind.
