    impossible not to dwell upon Holly Hunter saying in interviews how protective she felt over the gay boys she met while doing summer stock in high school

    Scream

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    feels so preoccupied with its broad self-referential conceits, commentary, and themes (which I am extremely down for — this is Scream, after all) that it neglects to nurture its basic story beats (scene-building with breathing room, hanging out with and getting to know the core characters, a sense of reality interrupted by sudden invasion, casting.... not great that both killers can be seen from a mile away) - in all honesty I’ll probably watch it again at Halloween time
