First Review Of Scream 4 - And It's POSITIVE!

Filed under: Film FlickersCourteney Cox

scream-4-test-screening-positive-review

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.

Excellent!

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?!

Did Wes Craven Accidentally Reveal Courteney Cox's Fate In Scream 4??

We hope not! But this could be very telling!

We reported earlier that Scream 4 director Wes Craven spoke out about his time on set with troubled couple Courteney Cox and David Arquette, but upon further reflection, his words may actually reveal something about the fate of their characters in the much-anticipated slasher flick!

Craven is quoted as saying:

"I’m glad to hear that David is going into rehab. I saw him a little bit more because he was present during more of the shoot than Courteney. He was in a lot of pain, so it’s good that he’s getting some help.”

Oh boy! So what could that mean exactly??

Only that Courteney was in less of the shoot than her husband, which COULD imply that her character, Gale Weathers, meets her maker in the latest installment!

And given the footage of her character's attack in the trailer (above - at the :40 second mark), it certainly does not look good!

On the flip side, we should give Wes Craven and the editors of the trailer a little more credit! Would they really want to spoil such a huge character death so blatantly?!

We have a feeling that there's a little more going on than what the surface suggests!

What do U think?? Is Gale Weathers having her last encounter with Ghostface in Scream 4??

Pain-In-The-Ass Confirmed For Scream 4!

hprcscreamjb.jpg

Hopefully her obnoxious ass will be killed off in the first ten minutes!!

Yesterday, it was announced that Emma Roberts was cast as the new lead in Wes Craven's Scream 4, and today, we're very sad to report that the rumors were true - Hayden Pain-in-the-Ass has also snagged a role!

As we reported earlier, the irritating twit will be portraying Roberts' best friend, who is apparently a film geek. If she's anything like the original's horror buff character, Randy, we'll be stuck with her until at least the sequel! BARF.

Rory Culkin has also been confirmed as the male love interest, and as we all know, the Arquettes and Neve will be back as their iconic characters Dewey, Gale, and Sidney!

Let's hope that Kevin Williamson switches up the character dynamic so we're not watching a rehash of the first one!

We've still got faith in this flick - even if SHE'S in it!

Thoughts???

Scream 4 Gets Poster, Release Date!! Director Wes Craven Spills The Deets!!

scream-4-poster_344jb.jpg

AMAZING! We are so, SO excited!

Check out the just-released poster for the MUCH-anticipated Scream 4, which not only showcases that old, self-referential spook, Ghostface, but a release date!

Mark your calendars! It's rolling into theaters April 15th, 2011!

Entertainment Weekly also sat down with director Wes Craven about the project, and he gives some pretty interesting deets on the story:

So how did Scream 4 come together?

Bob Weinstein [the head of Dimension Films] felt that 10 years was enough of a wait. He felt it was time to give the original three films their due, so he called Kevin Williamson, who started coming up with ideas. For some years, Kevin had the notion of the general course of the next three movies. There was a point where Bob came to me and said, “We want to start showing you pages — do you want to do it?” And off we went.

Did you have any trepidation about revisiting the series so many years down the road?

No, I’m fascinated by what this movie is. I can’t think of another film that has not only a true trilogy, where you’re following a single central character over three pictures, but has the complexity to the story and other characters that also have continued along. And then 10 years later, to come back to those same characters and same actors, and continue that story in a way that’s totally organic. It’s kind of unprecedented.

Are Sidney, Gale, and Dewey still going to be the central characters, or are they on the periphery this time?

It’s a total integration of those three and new kids. The story of Sid, Gale, and Dewey is very much a part of the movie.

And Sid’s still having problems with Ghostface?

There have been 10 years of no Ghostface, but there has been the movie-within-a-movie Stab. We have fun with the idea of endless sequels, or “sequelitis” as Kevin calls it in the script. Sid goes through these three horrendous things, and Stab was based on those horrible things. And then they’ve been taken by a studio and run into the ground in a series of sequels. She has been off by herself and living her own life, and she’s even written a book that has gotten a lot of critical acclaim. She’s kind of put her life back together in the course of these 10 years. But, certainly, there would be no Scream without Ghostface, so she has to confront him again, but now as a woman who has really come out the darkness of her past.

Can you tease what’s happening with Dewey and Gale by this point?

I don’t think Bob Weinstein would be very happy if I disclosed anything. We have been playing CIA with trying to keep everything secret, and we haven’t put any pages out from the current version of the script, except for things we’ve already discarded. Our first experience with casting this time around, the sides [portions of the script used for auditions] that we used were put on the Internet the same afternoon. It was bad back when we made the other movies, too. On Scream 2, we had the first 40 pages of the script show up on the Internet the night they arrived from Kevin, and we had to do backflips to rewrite the opening.

Speaking of openings, are you at least going to continue with having a couple killed at the beginning of the film?

That’s a strong possibility. [Laughs] Certainly, you will recognize what Bob calls the DNA of the film: a very complex murder mystery, a shocking action picture, wonderful humor based on character, and lots of surprises, as well as a movie that kind of copies itself. It’s a pretty amazing script.

What is your opinion of where the horror genre has gone these past 10 years?

It feels like the end of an era of a certain type of film. There are series of films, a lot of sequels, and a lot of remakes, and part of the humor of Scream 4 is when characters comment on that. “Enough of Saw 25 and all!” [Laughs] A lot of films, directors, and studios are the butts of some of the jokes. In order to figure out what’s happening around them, the characters have to figure out where the genre of horror is. So this is a look at horror after 10 years of a lot of sequels rather than original films coming up year after year. One film is successful, and then they make 25 of them. I think it’s time for something new. I’ve done remakes of my own films, too, with The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes, but we feel it’s time for something new and different, and that’s what this film is going to be.

But then is it ironic that this is the fourth film in a series?

Yeah, but I’ve never felt like these are sequels. This is a film about the progress of, at this point, three core characters, and how all of these events have changed their lives, and how the events in their lives have been reflected in the movies around them, which they might like or might really not like at all. I think that makes it really different.

As for the poster’s tagline, “New decade, new rules,” are the new rules going to specifically comment on what’s happened these last 10 years with horror movies?

It’s very much about the last 10 years, and where we are right now. “New decade, new rules” is very much the keynote of the film, that is, trying to figure out what sort of rules (the new Ghostface) is following. How do we fight this killer without a road map? We have to figure out where we are.

Are you returning to Santa Rosa, Calif., to shoot?

We’re actually going to Michigan. We found a wonderful small town that looks very much like the town we had in Northern California. Frankly, the tax breaks in Michigan are enormous, so we’ll be able to put a lot more movie on the screen.

But this Michigan town is still supposed to represent (the series’ fictional town of) Woodsboro?

Yeah. I guess I just gave something away. [Laughs]

Can we count on Scream 4 remaining an R-rated movie with blood and guts and all that fun stuff?

I think that’s safe to say. I’ve very excited about it. At this point in my career, Scream is one of the longest running stories I’ve told. It’s fascinating to still have actors who are very much into continuing their roles and have great chemistry. Part of the reason these three characters are still alive is because they’re so great. We haven’t wanted to kill them.

And, should Scream 4 become a hit, you are signed on for Scream 5 and 6, right?

Yeah, I’m signed on for the duration.

If anyone can pull this off, it's Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson! We are THRILLED to see this happening!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Scream 4??
