It's decent. When I saw it at the midnight showing in Michigan, I left SOOOOOOOO disappointed. The tone of the film completely changed from the original trilogy. No longer did we have any intense scenes, or scary moments -- it sadly turned into a self-parody. I left the theater saying "Omg, I didn't think I would say this but this is my least favourite one."

Then the next day I was able to reflect on it... I forced myself to get over the fact that it had turned into a self-parody with little real scares. When I went and saw it that night for the second time, I actually really enjoyed it. The ending could have went so much better though... sadly, if you've been reading up on it, Kevin's original ending was completely different... so his ideas for the trilogy he had planned are now impossible.

P.S. Are we actually allowed to spoil anything in this thread?

But yeah, go in expecting nothing more than a fun movie and you'll have a great time.

Also, the movie is way too rushed. There's so many scenes they edited out for no good reason... it's the shortest film of them all, so I don't see why they couldn't add in the extra scenes we wanted. When we see a Scream movie, we want character development. Those extra scene would have given that to us. So I'm PRAYING for an extended cut on the DVD/Blu Ray release.

I like to know that, too.

My opinion about the movie:
I think it was really really good. Not as good as 1 but better than 3 & 2. But it's definitely not the bloodiest (bloodier than 2 & 3 but not as bloody as 1).
About the scare-factor: I never thought that any Scream-Movie was really scary but all of them had tension and so did this one.
About the kills: I am very dissapointed with the "real" opening kill and some others. I expected them to be more brutal and bloodier (hoped for it).
About the fun-factor: It is definitely the funniest of them all. I laughed a lot of time.
About the killer: On the one hand it was really predictable on the other hand it was totally shockin (ppl who saw the movie know what I'm talkin about).
About the story: I really love how they turned a 90s horror movie into a 2010s horrormovie, that worked really well, especially how the teenagers acted and all that stuff. But everything happened way too fast. The movie could've been 20 minutes longer with more hunting the killer and thinking about everything scenes if you know what I mean. Also the motive of the killer is kind of lame, even though it really fits the 2010s. I wouldn't come up with a better motive in this situation but they could've worked the movie out in a different way. Also I can't see how they make 2 more parts.
Overall: One of the best Scream movies but it still feels like they could've done it better, soo...

my rating is: 89% (I'd give Scream 95, Scream 2 80 and Scream 3 85)

I agree with ScreamKing. I was just a bit disappointed with the movie, but it was still good and I had a fun time. Here’s my review:
1. It completely and totally changed in tone from the original trilogy. I don’t really consider the Scream series to be slasher films because of the plotlines, backstory and character development. THIS was pretty much just a regular old slasher in my opinion because it barely had ANY of that.
2. I was so confused by the beginning and I didn’t like the ending. Ending coulda been better.
3. Ghostface appeared to have a plastic mask in this instead of rubber! WHAT THER FUCK!? Am I the only one who noticed that. It may just be me, I don’t know, but it looked pretty plastic.
4. Sidney was barely in this movie. WHAT THE HELL!? SHE’S THE MAIN CHARACTER!!!
5. There were so many new characters, yet, we knew NOTHING about them.
6. We all know why KILLER 2 was attacking because he/she was jealous of Sidney. But why the heck was KILLER 1 hacking people?

I am confused and disappointed by so Many things in this film. I was disappointed just a bit. It wasn't a terrible film, but it wasn’t a great film either.

SCREAM 4 gets a 6.5/10 from me!

It was a fun film...
I'm feeling a mixture of disappointment, and also really wanting to watch the film again.
I don't know whether I feel disappointed because it's all 'over' now, or whether I genuinely feel like the film wasn't good. There are some bits that I really enjoyed, like Olivia's death, and the opening sequence - it was fun. It will probably get better with age, if that makes sense. I'll try not to dwell too much on it and just enjoy the film in its own right.

Ok, now... Tell me I'm not the only one that teared up at Sidney's first appearance? It was pretty emotional, right?

Well, in my opinion it was pretty good. It's not the best out of the first 3, but it was at least Scream. The critics claimed "Scariest one since the original". I didn't find this one to be that scary. The reason that it probably wasn't as enjoyable for me, I somehow knew Charlie was the killer, or rather now, one of the killers. he just seemed to have that kind of vibe coming from him. Although it was a surprise for me that Jill was the main killer. The other surprise was when the police officer, Perkins, got stabbed in the forehead. That was awesome! I've never seen anything like that before. So, that's all of the surprises and non-surprises.
The opening, ok, this was different. While I was watching it, in the opening to Stab 6, when the 2 girls got killed that quickly, I was like "NO WAY! That opening Sucked!" And then we found out that it was 2 girls watching Stab 6. Then when the girl in the pink shirt stabs the gitl in the blue shirt, I was thinking "They really reveal the killer this early?" Until it was the opening to Stab 7. And the real opening, more suspenseful. I thought it was pretty good. Although, if there is a Scream 5, I hope it makes up for this one.
The "false" ending, as they put it in the movie, brought back so much memories from the first one. Jill is a freaking Psyco. I knew Charlie was gonna stab Kirby after she untied him. In the hospital, I wanna know how the hell Jill survived that many jolts of electricity in the head? I'm not sure if it's even possible to survive that!! But, of course, a gun shot kills the killer in the end.
On to the funny parts. My favorite one was when Perkins is about to die, and his famous last words were "Fuck Bruce Willis!" That was Hilarious! Also, I liked it when Gale says "Clear" When Sydney is about to electricute Jill. I also thought it was funny when all the Reporters were asking jill what it felt like to be the hero. I give this movie 8/10 stars.

Ok, review time, a year later.
I felt strange watching this film in the theatre, as I watched the original as a teen myself and could relate to the highschool theme. 2 was brilliant and as a young man entering my 20's I felt a bond with Syd and her College chums. 3 was out there and I enjoyed it in a different way. But 4, I felt a little old watching it.. Like I was now thinking 'is she going out dressed like that''? (This is probably down to my two baby daughters arriving in the last 2 years.) But I felt younger than our holy trinity, so it worked in the end! But I thought it was even better a few months later after I purchased it on DVD. I love the movie, and the comedic moments were outstanding. The kills were brutal, but alas, I too did not have a single jumpy scare moment as I had in the originals.
So all in all, its Scream for a different generation, but as part of the old school, I feel there's still something there for us too.
Now bring on 5!!!! RNDY2
