The year is 1996 and horror films have become a parody of themselves. This state of affairs provoked Wes Craven – a master of modern horror – to make Scream, a film which worked as a horror film while also satirising genre conventions. It also made it commercially viable for a film to be self aware and successful. Then we had Scream 2 in 1998 and Scream 3 in 2000. Successful they may have been, but eventually the parody series became a parody of itself. Fast forward 11 years into the future and Wes Craven has returned to Woodsboro to bring us Scream 4.
