I haven’t seen the new movie yet but my favorite films in the series are:
Scream
And
Scream 4

I actually didn’t care for 3 at all….and 2 was pretty good.

I just saw it and it was, eh, okay. Definitely wasn't the best of the Scream franchise but watchable. I had the killer(s) totally wrong

I finally saw the new Scream a couple of weeks ago, and boy do I have things to say about this one... While I enjoyed the original for what it was, it was the type of movie I never felt needed any sequels... The point was made, but money talks... Of course I've watched them all, but never could get invested in the rest of the series. It's like that joke in the Honest Trailer, how many times can you deconstruct a genre that was never all that complex to begin with? It's ironic that the movie created to deconstruct the Slasher Genre, created it's own short-lived sub-genre of 'Teen Scream' Scream clones. Originally, I didn't have much interest for this installment, especially after some of the things I heard about it, but I prefer to see for myself and form my own opinions.

Overall, I enjoyed the movie a lot more than I expected I would. It was the first time I've actually gotten invested in a Scream movie since the original.

There were a couple things I didn't like for starters... Like the totally unsubtle fan-blaming session where, to me at least, they were ripping fans who love these films and don't like the unnecessary changes being made to 'fix' these franchises to cater to the sensibility's of modern audiences. Maybe I was reading too much into it, but it's that much of a trigger subject for me. Fan shaming is the main reason I tend to skip a lot of modern films, I'm just tired of being told I'm a horrible person for liking or disliking a particular movie or TV show. I also wasn't too thrilled about the killer reveal... One I saw coming a mile away, and the other was so far out of left field that I couldn't care about it. I literally forget that character even existed since they were so irrelevant to the story up until that point. Ironically, I did enjoy their reasoning for being the killer despite my previous point, but I can't really explain without getting into spoiler territory.

Despite my complaints about the fan-blaming, I did get a kick out of what I perceived as a friendly backhanded swipe at Halloween (2018) for bringing back legacy characters and forcing other franchises to feel like they had to do the same to drum up fan interest. Kind of makes me wonder if they called the Movie 'Scream' for the same reason. The original was kind of known of doing crap like that. I also liked when the Wes character was killed, they threw the farewell party with the 'For Wes' banner hanging prominently. Very classy move to honor the franchises legendary creator.

*Spoiler alert Below*

I do have to spoil this part, but I think we all saw this coming anyway. I was surprised/not surprised to see the film 'reverse fridge' Dewey. Kudos though for having the balls to do something most fans didn't want to see.

Overall I give it a 3.5/5... Probably my second favorite in the franchise, though that can be a case of the film coming out at the right time for me personally.

The movie was pretty decent.

Scream 6 apparently has a script already. It's supposed to start filming in June.

Have any of you watched the series?

I watched the series…..all the seasons and I would say the 3rd season was the better of the 3 however neither really met the expectations I had for a Scream series to be honest.
The first two didn’t feel right at all with the hokey mask and strange history story line that didn’t really fit the Scream “formula.” I almost feel it could have been better if it wasn’t called Scream at all.

The 3rd season feels more like Scream “who dun it?” especially with the return of the GhostFace costume…..but still dragged quite a bit in places and I remember not enjoying the motivation of the killer during the reveal at the end of the show…..

I enjoyed Season 3 over the other two.

We need a new whodunit franchise.

Just re-watched the entire franchise.

1. Scream 2
2. Scream (1996)
3. Scream (2022)
4. Scream 4
5. Scream 3

I really liked the first season of the TV show but didn't care for the next two.
