‘Scream’ 2022 Cast: A Vague Visages guide for every performer and character in Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s franchise movie.
“‘Scream’ conjures up a fast-moving, razor-sharp, viciously violent and sufficiently surprising modern slasher of which Craven himself would be proud.”
“In their own ways, Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger all go beyond the real world, and beyond mortality.”
“Regardless of how one chooses to view it, H20’s legacy will always have Laurie/Keri’s character and Curtis’ performance in its favor.”
“‘Freddy vs. Jason’ is — like almost all horror movies — a signpost for the anxieties of an era, looking much like the prestige horror movies of today will look from the vantage point of the next decade.”
Mike Thorn and A.M. (Anya) Novak look back at the series entries and provide their thoughts on the newest addition.
“It’s rare to find a movie that pays homage to the good ol’ days while also paving its own way, but ‘Hatchet’ is that.”
“I can’t make any grand pronouncements or bold proclamations, except that I need to either learn to read program descriptions more critically or invest in a plane ticket to Montreal next July.”
Mike Thorn and A.M. Novak discuss the ‘Halloween’ franchise.
“As the second last film in one of the great contemporary horror filmmaker’s careers, it’s an extraordinary example of artistic self-reflection and development.”
“‘Under the Shadow’ is an admirable film, albeit not wholly original.”
“Where ‘Scream’ comments on how to play the game, ‘Cabin’ comments on who actually gets to play.”
“A surprisingly funny and sharp-witted caricature of mass-produced horror, The Final Girls is the product of cult film iconography and our culture’s obsession with the ironically good.”
