Scream 3 (2000) Review

by Yo Adrian on March 18th, 2019 | | , ,

Scream 3 was directed by Wes Craven (who also directed My Soul to TakeNew NightmareVampire in BrooklynCursed and Red Eye) and stars David Arquette (from Bone TomahawkOrionThe TripperRavenous), Neve Campbell (from The DarkThe Craft) and Courteney Cox (from Scream 2ScreamScream 4). It’s about yet another guy in a mask who runs around slashing teens.

Someone has taken their love of trilogies one step too far.

Scfream 3 Review

Scream 1 was about a slasher terrorizing everyone in Woodsboro California, Scream 2 was about a movie called Stab based off the Woodsboro slasher and Scream 3 was about the filming of Stab 3. Scream 1 made fun of horror movies, Scream 2 made fun of movie sequels and Scream 3 makes fun of trilogies.

Scream was original, suspenseful and humorous. Scream 2 was less original (it was basically the same movie), but still suspenseful and funny, it also featured an all star cast. Scream 3 felt recycled, had less humor, fewer movie references (the closest to horror was a Vertigo reference) and less of an all star cast (there was only a brief Jay and Silent Bob cameo).

Overall Scream 3 felt recycled and bland. And it’s long 1:50 run time didn’t help. It stayed true to the franchise, but so did Craven’s Dream Warriors, and that was awesome. It effectively reinvigorated the franchise, where Scream 3 just kinda milked it.

Worth Watching?

If you’re a big Scream fan than yes, it definitely gives you more of what you want. More Ghostface, more Deputy Dewey and more of Neve Campbell’s tragic eyes. But if you’re looking for a good standalone slasher I’d have to recommend virtually anything else than this. Dream Warriors comes to mind.
