Review:
Four chapters in and almost 15 years since the original opened, the Scream franchise still has bite.

In a cannibalistic fashion, the series needs to feed off of its own kind to be relevant and, by the time Scream 3 was released, the series had been exhausted. Thanks to the last ten years of Asian ghost stories, torture horror and remakes, Scream 4 has found a way to make the series relevant again, smartly commenting on not just the genre and itself (or in this case the wildly popular "Stab" films - "Scream's" cinematic mirror image) but on the sad decline of media-fixated, narcissistic youth. Of the series, this could be the most cynical chapter to date, bringing with it a welcome, subversive message.
