Trivia

Rarely has a film franchise made it to four films with the sequels consistently remaining numbered titles, without subtitles or any kind of variation: Scream (1996), Scream 2 (1997), Scream 3 (2000), and Scream 4 (2011). This is especially noteworthy because most of the franchises spoofed in the film (Halloween, Friday The 13th and Nightmare on Elmstreet) are known for their use of creative subtitles. See more »

Goofs

(at around 10 mins) When the girl crawls away from Ghostface while bleeding, he moves to the garage door controls to close the door while she's crawling under it. We see a shot of the girl crawling, and in the last second before the camera shifts, the garage door starts to go down seconds before the camera switches to Ghostface hitting the "Close" button on the controls.

World Premiere
12 April 2011 | by Niek_verbiestSee all my reviews

If you liked the first 3 movies you will like this one too. It has the same feel as the other Scream movies, but i don't want to spoil any story so i won't say anything about that.

I am a fan of the scream movies but not a HUGE fan that is why i would rate it an 8. Story wise (like every horror movie) it could sometimes be a bit better, but I found this story better then the typical horror movie. The kills were more realistic and the gore levels were appropriate in the scenes in my opinion.

If your a fan of horror movies i would really recommend it though. And if your a fan of Scream movies go see it!
