Friday night trailer: The officially official “Scream 4” trailer

“Scream 4” had a trailer that got pulled earlier this, but this one appears to be for realsies.

This looks kind of fun but also way too cute. I liked the “I’ll be right back” joke, but then I’ve never seen the point of repeating this movie idea — indeed, I’ve only actually seen the first one. (I sped through the opening scene with Drew Barrymore, because Wes Craven is a kind of genius and I’m a big fat cinema chicken sometimes).

H/t /Film, appropriately enough. Oh, and my favorite scary movies are probably “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Silence of the Lambs.” “The Haunting,” “The Innocents,” “The Bride of Frankenstein,” and “The Abominable Dr. Phibes” are all up there.

This may be why people keep complaining about sequels

I admit that as a bit of a cinema chicken with my famously mixed feelings about horror, particularly of the slasher variety, I’ve only actually seen the original “Scream” — and only made it past the brilliantly terrifying opening with the help of the fast forward button. Still, and I hate to keep bagging on Wes Craven, who I respect, this teaser trailer for the long-awaited-by-someone-I’m-sure “Scream 4” really feels warmed over. How far can you keep building up this kind of self-awareness before you lose all human feeling? Or, maybe I’ve got it wrong. Or maybe it’s just a hastily rushed out, poorly put-together trailer to try to make everyone forget about Craven’s fiscally and critically disastrous “My Soul to Take.” See for yourself.
