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 murdering teenagers in a small town, and as the body count rises, one girl and her friends contemplate the "rules" of horror films as they find themselves living in a real-life one.
