It’s hard to believe that this year marks the sixteen year anniversary of the original Scream’s release and that it has been eleven years since the final film in the trilogy, Scream 3 was released. Well now the film series that single-handedly revitalized the teen horror film genre and became one of the greatest film parodies of all time, returns with Scream 4. The three main protagonists of the film will be returning with David Arquette and Courteney Cox playing the couple Dewey Riley and Gale Weathers, respectively and Neve Campbell reprising her role as Sidney Prescott. But with the beginning of a supposed new trilogy, the Ghostface Killer is gonna need some new blood to attack. So to introduce yourself to this new cast of potential victims, here are some under-ranked films from the cast of Scream 4.

This week features a pretty solid and varied collection of movies. I’m not going to say some don’t look offensively bad, but I think the good outweighs them this week. The Warner Brothers Archive has some fun looking movies and Netflix continues to add some better than average movies to their instant watch service.
Tetro (DVD and Blu-ray)
The thought of sitting down and watching a new Coppola movie gets me giddy. For some reason every one of his recent movies seems to me like a long lost Hitchcock or Hawks movie. It just seems like this huge event from a long-lost talent, even though he’s (thankfully) still with us. He’s done a great job cocooning himself and his style is so pure that it feels like we’re uncovering these wonderful lost masterpieces from long ago.
