A new trailer has been released for the upcoming sequel Scream 4, and it’s filled with cliches. The teaser trailer centered on the suspense and horror factor, but the theatrical version is all about the jokes. Do you remember Jamie Kennedy’s character from the first two movies? In Scream 4 everyone has turned into him. Everyone is obsessed with the rules, and everyone is a comedian. Take a look…
We were actually looking forward to seeing what the new Scream had to offer, but this trailer is a major turn off. It’s overly campy. These movies are supposed to be a satire of horror films from the seventies and eighties, but they’re going overboard. The first trilogy had moments of humor, but it still managed to scare the crap out of you. That’s not the case here.
Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox), who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.
Scream 4 is scheduled to debut in theaters on April 15.
