Scre4m Review

Last Sunday, it felt like my birthday. No, it had nothing to do with the weekend release of my book...I was going to see Scream 4!

IMDb Synopsis: Ten years have passed, and Sidney Prescott, who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the Ghostface Killer.

I really didn't know what to expect. It's been ten years since the last installment in franchise and I really hoped it would live up to the hype. Honestly, I still don't know what to think. When the movie was over, I left knowing I enjoyed the movie, but I couldn't come up with anything more than that.

Not wanting to give up any spoilers, I will discuss characters: LOVED Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell as the obligatory celebrity cameo. Gail (Courtney Cox) and Dewey (David Arquette) have always been one of my favorite odd couples, but I was a bit disappointed in their lack of screen time. Emma Roberts did absolutely nothing for me. But the one actress/character that caught my attention was Hayden Panettiere. She did a fabulous job as the cool side-kick.  

Maybe it's because I saw it in the theatre, something I don't do often, that left me feeling wanting a bit more. I will no doubt watch it again when it becomes available On-Demand. I'll enjoy it much more without the added soundtrack of laughing teens.

ROW80 Update:

Sunday: Aside from watching Scream 4, I did manage to write most of the morning. I finished two scenes and I felt pretty good about it.

Monday: I edited one sentence.

Tuesday: Since Heir is set in alternate realities, I actually had to sit down and outline each universe and its respective characters. I also used the outline to draft some more scenes, so that I don't get confused!

Wednesday: Haven't had a chance to write, but I have a scene I need to tackle after Modern Family and Cougar Town tonight. :)


  1. The blog is very good!

  2. Stupid laughing teens! Were they also texting while laughing? That sort of ruined seeing horror movies at the theater for me. Part of the fun of sitting with a sold out crowd is everyone reacting to the movie. All the cell phone screens lighting up make me want to chat up Ghostface for advice.

    Good job on all your world building and one sentence edit! One is better than none.
