Scream (1996) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
"Scream" has one element that is repeated over and over: jokey false scare followed by bloody murder. I didn’t find the in-jokes funny, nor did the murders amuse me in that so-twisted-it’s sick-n-silly way. I just found it all to be insufferably smug and insensitive to the audience(this is a movie with no respect for film-watchers, just filmmakers, particularly the one behind the camera). It wants to believe we don’t really care about the low-lifes-in-suburbia involved, and so therefore can laugh at their grisly deaths, but I really have trouble with cartoony violence(especially bloody murders served up tongue-in-cheek)that I didn’t buy into "Scream". It left me with a sour aftertaste and a general dislike for director Wes Craven, who shows no growth as a moviemaker, only his incompetence while trying to juggle two distinctly different movie styles. He drops both balls here.was not really a good film 5/10
Synopsis:A masked killer begins killing teenagers in the small town of Woodsboro. One young girl and her friends realise that as the number of deaths go up, to survive they must follow the rules or horror movies.
