Tonight I wrap up reviewing Wes Craven’s Scream franchise with Scream 4. Wes Craven takes a morbid tongue in cheek look at the remake craze in the horror genre. Craven has spawned many iconic pop culture lines and its my opinion that Scream 4 drops “What’s your favorite scary movie,” in favor of Sydney’s line in the climax, “You forgot the first rule of a remake don’t f$^k with the original!”
Scream 4 is right up with Scream 1, the original Nightmare, the original Halloween, and The Fog as some of my all time favorite horror movies. Scream 4 is definitely one of the best movies Craven has to offer.
Sunday Spotlight is a head of schedule and issues in a variation on the sequels series currently being reviewed by Kristina Stancil. You can not do a series on remakes without touching on a classic iconic horror franchise. As Scream 4 wraps up the Scream series Sunday Spotlight issues in yet another masterpiece of Wes Craven by taking on Freddy Krueger.
There are two spotlights today. The first introduces an upcoming series and the second concerns our magazine Blood Reign Lit Mag.
Only two more remakes are on our countdown list! This week is a review of 2013’s Fright Night 2 remake.
