Buy it... if you simply can't resist hearing Marco Beltrami procedurally delve into his 1990's bread and butter once more, even if that taste has become somewhat stale during the interim.

Avoid it... if you expect to find an interesting or engaging extension of the thematic narrative for the franchise, for Beltrami revisits ghosts from the past without developing them in engaging new directions.

Beltrami
Beltrami
Scream 4: (Marco Beltrami) Once thought stabbed to death and buried as a relic of the slasher era's resurrection in the 1990's, the Scream franchise is up to its old tricks in the 2010's once again. Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson return from the first two features to reprise their roles for this fourth entry, along with other crew that include actors Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox. While there was originally no intent to bring the franchise back to life, Craven was convinced of its renewed viability based upon Williamson's fresh script, and, undaunted by a lawsuit from the producer of the original three films, the Weinsteins and Dimension Films pressed forward with the idea of creating an entire second trilogy if grosses permit. Performance by Scream 4 at the box office was initially considered disappointing, critics and audiences both respectful of the concept's important role in the history of modern slasher films but lamenting a lack of originality and a story that doesn't seem to really take itself seriously. That plot details the return of Campbell's character, Sidney Prescott, to the town of Woodsboro on the fifteenth anniversary of the killings so she can promote her new book. Upon her arrival, however, a mysterious reprise of murders conducted in trademark form by the "ghostface" killer immediately causes Sidney to become a suspect. The situation is complicated by both a plethora of new characters (many of them simply extras to thrust sharp objects into) and a new era of technology at play. The entire scenario is entirely pedestrian and predictable, an attempt by Craven to recapture old glory without enough revision in the basic premise to retain much interest. Continuing his role as the composer for the franchise is Marco Beltrami, whose career owes much to his ability to excel in the modern horror genre during the 1990's. The announcement of his return to the concept was met with general applause and fairly heightened expectations.
