Seeing as I hadn't seen any films in the Scream series until just last night, I can't profess myself an expert of Wes Craven's more recent film franchise. What I can say is that it does not feel like a horror series so much as a comedy with emotional content. The first two films have a brilliantly demented and hip sense of humor, even if the third film does completely fail on any and all promises. It was an inglorious end to a previously interesting series, so a continuation isn't the worst thing in the world. Anything to get the bad taste of My Soul to Take out of our mouth. Craven needs to get some street cred back, and you always head back to your home team when you need it.
