Beautifully done “requel😂” … everything I loved about the original with a fresh twist and of course humor at their own franchise and horror in general sprinkled throughout. This was super fun to watch and it reminded me of my love for these movies. Turn the lights down and grab the popcorn, this is cheesy good fun!

Right off the bat I have to say, this is about as perfect of a sequel as I can remember. I had a smile on my face for most of the movie, except the parts where my jaw dropped. High-quality filmmaking all around.
They managed to make a fresh new entry in the franchise while somehow keeping the same feel as the originals. Everything feels natural, nothing feels forced. You would think the meta aspect is old by now, but nothing is old if it’s done well. It has one of the most meta scenes in movie history, and I loved it. It’s funny, awesome and creepy, constantly keeping you at the edge of your seat.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this fifth entry in the franchise is my favorite. I liked them all except for Scream 3, but this feels better in so many ways…”
-Review on IMDB, rated movie 8/10
“An arrogant presumption of filmmakers with no originality of their own Wes Craven’s ’90s cult horror film “Scream” (1996) was a groundbreaking flick that set numerous trends for the future of the horror genre. It was charming, well-acted and coherent, so it was also simply well-written. …blah blah blah… Those responsible should be ashamed of this film, but since shame obviously hardly seems to be a thing these days, that’s not to be expected either way….blah blah blah…Arrogant, stupid and certainly without such “unfashionable” values as respect and discourse skills. ”
-Review on IMDB, rated movie 1/10
Please note that I inserted the …blah blah blah’s in place of the super long garbage that was written. I actually think this movie was made for you patrick and alas, your spewage does not surprise me. Maybe take an icepick to your eyeballs so you don’t have to inflict your flaming crap on the rest of us.
