SCREAM 3 (2000)

Yep, they're beating a dead horse with this one. Sidney is now in hiding and in an attempt to draw her out a copycat Ghostface is killing the actors of the film-within-a-film STAB 3, which is currently in production. Yawn.  Why the fuck does this story have to be so complicated?  Despite six returning characters from the original film and an impressive cast of new characters (Lance Henriksen, Roger Corman, Parker Posey, Emily Mortimer, Patrick Warburton) SCREAM 3 is a snoozer that wouldn't please even the most forgiving of horror fans.

The surprise ending is telegraphed a million miles away, zero tits, stupid kills, zero gore, very little blood, lazy script filled with unfunny (and unneeded) jokes like a cameo by Jay and Silent Bob (Hahaha...so funny.), a cameo by Carrie Fisher where she references Princess Leia (Oh man that's hilarious!) and a Terminator-like statue in Lance Henriksen's office (ho-ho!  What a knee-slapper!). Honestly, I can't think of a single reason to watch this. I was actually looking forward to reviewing the SCREAM series, but this energy vampire turd sucked all the excitement out of me.
