The meta aspects of the original Scream felt fresh and inventive; the writing and directing were sharp enough to elevate the film beyond a simple gimmick. Plus, that film had a terrific young cast who worked to make it a genuinely scary horror movie in its own right. None of which can be said for this tedious, incoherently photographed “requil” that is as stale, repetitious, and creatively bankrupt as the reboot culture it attempts to comment on.
