This was.... 0kay? I enjoyed the parts with the original characters, I think hardcore Scream fans will have fun. I like the Scream series, but I'm not a fanatic like some people are, I genuinely hope those people enjoy this one. It made me wanna rewatch the series. I was annoyed by one death which I felt was unnecessary, but that's horror, people die, I guess. Idk, I don't wanna be a killjoy.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Thought i would love-hate this, but it was mostly middling. Seems to always miss the meat of the shot, which I guess is why it's acclaimed. A lot of crazy shit keeps happening, but it's somehow framed in the most boring way possible (sooo many filler shots, very bland color palette besides like two scenes, generic camerawork, shot over the shoulder through the doorways always at an inconvenient angle but never an interesting one, etc). Gore is rare, primarily implied.…
didn't like the dumb mopey scene near the end, laid on way too thick, too sympathetic to the blind man, the crying was embarrassing
batshit fun overall! way messier than the first, madcap exploitative vibes with a series of over-the-top characters who all get nasty deaths.
def in bad taste, but i have bad taste :)
