Scream ★★★

I gotta be honest, I’m a little torn. The meta humor that is necessary to the franchise is cleverly updated with modern horror references, and the casting was stellar… but unfortunately I wasn’t completely sold on Melissa Barrera as the lead. What I am absolutely not torn on is that each kill was fantastic and Jenna Ortega is a god damn star. As far as movies that don’t need to exist go, this is definitely one of the better ones. The fan service stuff isn’t laid on too thick and the movie respects Wes Craven’s legacy. Scream works more often than it doesn’t and it’s a slasher that’s sure to satisfy.
