My main problem with the Scream series, is that their all pretty much products of their time. While I applaud the first one for reinventing the slasher genre, I also blame it for the wave after wave of pointless, insipid, teen horror films of the late 1990s (I Know What You Did Last Summer, Urban Legend, etc.) The sequels haven't aged well at all either, Scream 2, while entertaining, suffered from a complete uninspired ending, not too mention killing off likeable characters (Randy) and not killing off unlikeable characters (Dewey). Scream 3 came out during the aftermath of the Columbine Massacre, so the violence and the gore were toned down, which severly diluted the film's impact. As for the new entry, while I applaud it's "stab" at poking fun at the new recent remake craze, it's still left a disappointing taste in my mouth. So on that note, hear are my picks I suppose.

1. Scream (1996): 7.5/10
2. Scream 2 (1997) 6/10
3. Scream 3 (2000): 5/10
4. Scream 4 (2011): 5/10
