Scream 4

Last week we highlighted a higher quality version of the newest trailer for Scream 4, the tongue-in-cheek slasher sequel from director Wes Craven. Frankly, I think the next installment looks to deliver more of the same with an eye towards highlighting the new clich├ęs of this last decade of horror. Now their marketing is in full swing as a new poster for Scream 4 has been revealed that throws back to previous franchise posters with the glowing, frightened face of a female victim inside the sequel number. As the tagline so graciously points out this is a new decade with new rules and plenty of new victims for Ghostface Killer to slice 'n dice.

Here's the new poster for Wes Craven's Scream 4 courtesy of Yahoo! Movies:

Scream 4 Poster

Ten years have passed since the first series of killings, and Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who has put herself back together thanks in part to her writing, is visited by the infamous Ghostface Killer once again. If you haven't seen the latest official trailer for Scream 4, you can watch it in high-def right here. He's back!

Scream 4 is once again directed by horror mastermind Wes Craven, of The Hills Have Eyes, Swamp Thing, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Shocker, Red Eye and the original Scream trilogy. The screenplay was written by franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who wrote Scream 1 & 2 and I Know What You Did Last Summer. The Weinstein Company / Dimension Films is bringing Scream 4 to theaters on April 15th. Thoughts?
