Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast: Scream 4

Posted: Updated:

2011-04-18-Scream4_400.jpgPoor Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell). Not satisified with the ordeals she suffered in Screams 1 - 3, she's gotta go and tempt fate by returning to Woodsboro and courting the attention of psycho killer Ghostface, who it turns out is still kicking around and slaughtering high-schoolers with manic glee. And if the main protagonist of the Scream series (along with her co-stars David Arquette and Courtney Cox) hasn't taken to heart that old saw about not being able to go home again, could it be possible that neither has director Wes Craven nor writer Kevin Williamson, who with Scream 4 attempt to reboot their long-nascent satirical horror franchise with an installment that pokes fun at -- surprise, surprise -- reboots of long-nascent horror franchises? Join Cinefantastique Online's Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons as they debate the issue.
