5cream Isn't Very Good.
Welcome to the Demiseoffilm.com, a site where the owner is retarded and likes complaining about movies long after anyone cares.
If you're here for an unbiased spoiler-free review of this movie, go somewhere else. However, if you're looking for the ramblings of some lunatic who has made a couple movies and written a couple books, well, you're in the right place.
First of all I would like to acknowledge Billy Loomis, I am sure glad that while he was a serial killer in the first movie, I'm glad to know that he wasn't a racist. He may have also cheated on his girlfriend, but again, at least he's not a racist piece of shit. We all know that being a bigot is the worst thing that someone can do.
I do not know where to begin with this movie. I don't know what it is about the Scream series but it seems to get worse with each movie, thus making us appreciate the last one. I never thought that I would appreciate Scre4m, but here we are.
Yes, I have seen all of the Scream movies. Why? I don't know. The only good one is the first one but this series is like a train wreck that I can't look away from. I gotta know how bad they're gonna fuck it up.
I say that I don't know where to begin because I really don't, I watched it a week ago and don't remember anything about it other than reddit and 4chan references. Can we please stop this? My parents watch this show called Evil and recommended I check it out. The first episode was complete and utter cringe with some guy meeting someone on 4chan and exchanging emails. Maybe I'm the fucking retard, but I'm pretty sure that's not how the anonymous image board works.
I'm not here to talk about Evil though, I'm here to talk about 5cream. I watched this film with my daughter, she has only seen Scream and Scream 2. While we were watching this she asked me a very important question: "When did Scream stop being funny?" I think this question is important because the first movie had a lot of humor, it didn't really feel like a horror film. Every film since then has tried coming across as a standard horror film without the laughs of the first.
I'll just break down the movie really quick for those who haven't seen it: Girl is chilling at her house and gets a phone call from Ghostface. She's like "I like Hereditary and The Babadook, I don't like Stab." The killer busts in and goes, "you don't like Stab? I'm gonna STAB you." She survives. Her sister (Billy Loomis' daughter) comes back to Haddonfield, I mean Woodsboro, and tries to find out who the killer is. She is assisted by Randy's niece and nephew, her boyfriend, Resting Bitch Face, the Legacy trio, and Billy Loomis' ghost.
I know he's supposed to be a hallucination, but the way they use Billy is more like he's a ghost than anything else.
This doesn't look or feel like a Scream movie and even though I'm glad to see Skeet Ulrich reviving his iconic role, this just feels kinda dumb. Why not pull a Jason Voorhees and bring him back as a zombie?
I've been trying really hard not to bring this up because it feels like bait. Here we go. The killers are Billy Loomis' daughter's boyfriend and RBF. Why are they killing people? Because they're mad about a shitty Stab sequel that was directed by Rian Johnson. No, I'm not kidding. In the movie they say, "the last Stab movie was awful and directed by the guy who made Knives Out."
Holy shit Hollywood, you're still upset about people not liking a fucking children's movie? I have no horse in this race since I haven't seen any of those movies, but holy fuck! I know the majority of people aren't going to catch this, but I caught it. Unlike the majority of the Internet, I actually like Rian Johnson.
Outside of my opening joke, I'm not going to talk about the forced diversity because again, it's bait. You know it's in this movie, I know it's in this movie. Let's just move on.
Overall, this doesn't really add or subtract from the original Scream, still the ONLY good one. There are a lot of weird plot holes, too. Like RBF living in Stu's old house but not one of her friends ever acknowledged this? Or how Boyfriend's plan was to seduce Billy Loomis' daughter, attack her sister, get her back to Haddonsboro, fight the killer, and then surprise at the end of the movie. Just sounds really convoluted.
If you like Scream and were curious if you should see this one, just pass it. If you like the Scream franchise, you've already seen this and now want to tell me I'm an idiot. Well, you've reached the comment section.
