Scream 4 (2011)

I always remember enjoying Scream 4 more than the previous sequels but a recent rewatch for Halloween proved otherwise. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve watched this, and honestly I’ve already forgotten the majority of the plot. That can’t be good.

It’s worth noting that this is the goriest of the Scream films. I’ve watched some of the grimmest and most questionable of exploitation cinema, but something just feels incredibly wrong and jarring about the extreme graphic violence of Scream 4. There’s one scene where a girl is literally hacked to pieces and her intestines are all over the bed and I really can’t put my finger on it but when high school dickwads are just laughing and joking in the next scenes it feels wrong. Yeah, that’s badly put, but something didn’t feel right for me here.
