All right! This is EXACTLY what we like to hear!
Under a shroud of secrecy, Scream 4 was test-screened last night to an audience in Pittsburgh, PA - and although there were reportedly strict confidentiality agreements in place, the film's first SPOILER-FREE review has hit the web - and it sounds AMAZING!
The viewer writes:
It was phenomenal! What can I say.
I was the first in line, and my friend and I waited in the line for about an hour and a half. They let a bunch of ethnic minorities in first (I fail to realize how this is relevant), but once we got in, the excitement hit.
This outshines the 3rd one easily.
Definitely the bloodiest of all of them, but I feel like they’ll edit some of it down. An unrated DVD would be nice to have though.
All the acting was superb. Not one flaw.
The opening scene was hilarious and brutal.
Definitely a lot of great Williamson writing.
The characters all felt very genuine. Gale was back to her bitchy self, and had a bunch of great one-liners.
The music seemed to be recycled Beltrami music from 1-3 but it worked well.
The ending was insanity.
Easily the best of all the series, in my opinion, anyways.
It didn’t end when I thought it would, and they even commented on that in the movie.
The crowd experience was great, and everybody was totally into it. Cannot WAIT to see this in theaters come April. Hopefully they don’t change anything. Loved it loved it loved it.
We didn't HATE the third one, but it definitely left much to be desired, so we're thrilled to hear that this one is back to form!
April cannot come fast enough! Gah!
What do U think?? Any other Perezcious readers at the screening?!
