Scream ★★★★½

As a huge fan of horror and especially the Scream franchise, I was very excited for this film but also very optimistic as this is the first Scream movie without Wes Craven who sadly passed away in 2015. But I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this. 

I had a few issues with the film, mainly just a not good first act and some iffy acting, but aside from that I had a great time watching this film. Ghostface was once again fantastic and it was a welcome return, the original characters coming back was also really nice to see and I thought were handled much better than the legacy characters in Halloween Kills, and even the new characters I thought did a great job. And the final act was a ton of fun and it actually took me awhile to predict who the killer was, but I thought It was a really good reveal. 

Overall, while I’ll always prefer the original film and Scream 2, Scream (2022), which should be called Scream 5 is a really good addition to the franchise and is a welcome return to a franchise that I felt had been dormant for too long.
