KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The fifth movie in the “Scream” franchise opens in theaters this weekend. FOX4 Film Critic and Great Day KC guest host, Shawn Edwards, ranks all five movies:
5. Scream 3 (2000) – This was originally set up to be the “final” installment. But you know how horror movies go.
4. Scream 4 (2011) – The triple opening sequence blew people’s minds. The rest was standard issue “Scream.”
3. Scream (2022) – Yes, this film fittingly falls in the middle. Neither great nor bad. It’s the talentless middle child that you still have to love, well because…
2. Scream 2 (1997) – How do you follow a phenomenon? You usually don’t. But Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson did just that.
1. Scream (1996) – This is the original and by far the best “Scream” movie. This film revolutionized the horror genre and changed the game. One of the best all-time scary movies.
