Scream 3

Scream 3

Synopsis

Murders in Hollywood provide a suitable setting for the climactic part of the definitive postmodern slasher trilogy

About

This original and exceedingly entertaining series of comedy-horror movies climaxes in its third instalment. A horror film is being made in Hollywood based on the true-life events depicted in the earlier Scream films but the actors are being knocked off in the same order that their characters in the movie die.

Campbell, heroine of the first two movies, is dragged out of her isolation when the killer seems to be leaving pictures of her mother at the scene of each murder. The self-referential humour of the original Scream is the strongest element here, though the Hollywood setting does allow for fresh material, including some amusing cameos.
