Drew Barrymore was making popcorn, Britt Robertson is making Hungarian goulash or something. Yeah, we’re not getting the thematic resonance either. But this shot sure does visually harken back to the opening scene of Scream in subtle ways.
With all the modern-as-possible communicatory tech in Scream 4, Lucy Hale’s clunky cordless seems out of place. Unless what we’re really seeing here is one of the older Stab sequels.
Ghostface removing wiring to disable the vehicle recalls the scene in Scream where Sidney trapped herself in the car, only for the killer to dangle the keys in front of her.
Allison Brie tries her best Ghostface impression to scare off her attacker. Don’t do that girl, it’ll just make him madder.
A hidden camera in the eye socket is the type of realistic technical advancement that the voice duplicator/changer in Scream 3 failed to be. We’d be surprised if this shot wasn’t culled from the requisite “unmask and explain my motive” part of the climax.
Don’t just stand there Courteney, look who’s hiding behind you – Debbie Salt’s vengeful mini-me!
Someone let one go. And Anthony Anderson is on the case. Hint: it was Adam Brody.
“So what do you want to do, bonehead? Just sit here and wait to see who drops next?” Sure beats being the one who gets dropped.
Ah, the return of a sneaky-sneaky Ghostface stalking around a house ala Casey’s house. If indeed it is the pale-faced one – the shape of the moving shadow in the window suggests someone maskless out there.
The lighting seems like a visual reference to Dario Argento’s Suspiria but probably just wasn’t color-timed yet. But look at where there’s no lighting – perhaps Aimee Teegarden should be worrying about that door ajar into darkness.
The Friday The 13th films taught us that anytime a character is standing too far to one side of the camera frame, it means a dead body is about to come crashing in to fill the open space. Also note a possible secondary threat shadowed in the window behind.
Despite persistant rumors, Kirby is not a lesbian. She’s practically drooling over the geeks on stage in this shot.
