"Do you like scary movies?"
Scream 3 has hit theaters with a bang as the final act of the
Scream trilogy. The ever-popular horror films have delighted
audiences and had them terrified for over three years.
Scream 3, sadly enough, is the last film in the Scream
franchise. However, the film comes in as great as its predecessors and even
a little more twisted.
The Scream films have always been known for their ability to confuse
the viewer about the identity of the killer until the last moment;
Scream 3 brings this together with an even more complex plot.
Sydney (Neve Campbell) is now living in a secluded home, protected by a
tight security system, and shut off from the entire public view. She works
at home, taking calls for a women's support line.
As with Scream 2, the inside movie, Stab (now called Stab
3), is in production. This time, director Ehren Kruger takes the
audience on the set of Stab 3 and reveals all characters that portray
the original cast of Scream..
The real Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox Arquette) and Dewey (David Arquette)
are brought back on the screen with the murder of one of the cast members
As the plot thickens, it is up to Sydney to once again save herself and
others from a sick and twisted killer in that ghostly masked costume.
Scream 3 is as fine a movie as Scream and Scream 2. The
movie adds a few more extras and special effects, and still has that
special element where it pokes fun at horror movies, and even itself.
The actors are excellent, as always. Jenny McCarthy, who played in
Stab 3, was exceptional. Of course, Neve Campbell stole the
show; she still has the riveting ability to catch the audience in her fear
and emotional distress.
Scream 3 was exciting, scary and intense. It was virtually well
written and twisted just enough to leave the audience confused and wanting
until the climatic moment. Box office records have shown that three was not
too many films in the franchise, seeing that the film took in around $34
million dollars on its opening weekend. This horror trilogy has made its
place in film history.
Horrifying trilogy ends with bang
