Blu-Ray Review: First Three ‘Scream’ Movies Prepare You For ‘Scream 4’

Scream

CHICAGO – Wes Craven’s “Scream” is one of the most influential horror films of all time. And it’s one of the best of its era. The film has held up remarkably well in the fifteen years since it was released and is a must-own for fans of the genre, especially with an extras-laden Blu-ray release timed to coincide with the upcoming April 15th release of “Scream 4.” The sequels are inferior but more worthwhile than average horror sequels. Why not own ‘em all?

By the time the film gets to its explosive climax, most viewers will be too bored to care and a sub-par Blu-Ray release doesn’t help the overall package.
