Ok firstly if you not a fan of the franchise or even the first film why write a review in the first place? The fact that you had to watch Scream again does ultimately show your lack of knowledge on the subject. I'll let you in on a secret I don't like Star Wars I have possibly seen 1 and a 1/3 of the Star Wars movies. So when/if/whatever...another film comes out I won't be the first person in the queue to buy a ticket.
You're comparing Scream to Psycho which also lets everyone know that you actually didn't get the point of these slasher movies. They are not lazy they are different. They are not Psycho, they are not The Ring. They are a totally unique brand of movie. The reason they fall under the horror category is because of the undeniable concept (people being chased and tormented by masked killers) and also because of the age rating. They shouldn't be compared to such films as The grudge, Paranormal Activity or The Fog. Your review is redundant as you have no idea what your reviewing.
As for 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' you must have been p*ssed when ghost face visits Omega, Beta, Zeta in Scream 2! Lol
Comparing this film to TV show garbage is an insult to Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson, Me, Anyone that reads this spill and Scream 4. At least do some real research and watch the correct Vampire series such as Vampire Diaries to give us an honest review of Kevin Williamson.
I enjoyed the movie. They kept the three main characters (from the trilogy) alive while resurrecting the format. They changed the rules without us feeling cheated. They developed the new characters without losing the main feel. There were plenty of red herrings to keep us interested and they poked fun at not only themselves but the horror genre and victim fails of yesteryear. I'm glad they didn't resort to the big boobed showering death scenes which is what you would have them do. Come on it's been done. It's tried, tested and tired! And if the third B would have been balls this movie might as well have cut off their own.
You shouldn't be nitpicking when your not a fan and as someone who doesn't like these films you should think about how bad it actually could have been? 10 years down the line, Woodsboro, new killer. It could have been awful. And it wasn't. Like at all.
Go back to your Buffy boxset and leave films you don't understand alone. Review The Reader orSaving Private Ryan or any of the various torture porn movies available AND in the words of Sidney Prescott "Don't f*ck with the original!
