Plot

Having experienced the trauma of the first two pictures, Campbell's Sidney Prescott character now lives in a secluded area of California where she works as a women's crisis counselor from her home. Her whereabouts are unknown even to her surviving friends (save for Dewey, played by Arquette). Gale Weathers (Cox) has become a largely successful news reporter (of a sensationalist style), thanks to the books she wrote revolving around the murders of the first two films (and subsequent films based on the books). Official language(s) English Capital Sacramento Largest city Los Angeles Largest metro area Greater Los Angeles Area  Ranked 3rd  - Total 158,302 sq mi (410,000 km²)  - Width 250 miles (400 km)  - Length 770 miles (1,240 km)  - % water 4. ... Sensationalism is a manner of being extremely controversial, loud, attention-grabbing, or otherwise sensationalistic. ...


The film begins when Cotton Weary (Liev Schreiber), the man long-ago suspected of killing Sidney's mother, is slaughtered (along with his girlfriend). Suspected of being related to the original killings, Los Angeles police detectives (led by Mark Kincaid, played by Patrick Dempsey) inform Gale Weathers of Weary's murder, asking if she may know anything about a picture found at the murder scene. When she identifies it as a picture of Maureen Prescott, Sidney's mother, it becomes apparent the killings are linked to her murder. Liev Schreiber (born October 4, 1967) is a Tony Award-winning American actor. ... Los Angeles and L.A. redirect here. ... Patrick Galen Dempsey (born January 13, 1966) is a Golden Globe Award-nominated American actor who first became prominent in Hollywood during the late 1980s. ...


Meanwhile, Weathers visits the set of the latest film in the Stab series, Stab 3: Return to Woodsboro. There she discovers a set that looks identical to the scene of the horrific "real" events that plagued her in the first Scream film. The visit also provides Weathers with the opportunity to meet director Roman Bridger (Scott Foley) and the various performers who are portraying the real-life people she knew or knows: Angelina Tyler (Emily Mortimer) as "Sidney", Sarah Darling (Jenny McCarthy) as "Candy", Tom Prinze (Matt Keeslar) as "Dewey" and Jennifer Jolie (Parker Posey) as Gale herself. Scream is a 1996 horror film, directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. ... Scott Kellerman Foley (born July 15, 1972 in Kansas City, Kansas) is an actor, best known for roles on Felicity, A.U.S.A., and Scream 3 (for which he was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for Film - Choice Sleazebag). ...

Matt Keeslar in the mini-series Stephen Kings Rose Red Matt Keeslar (born October 15, 1972 in Grand Rapids, Michigan) is an American actor. ...

Soon, these actors are systematically killed off in the same order as they are slated to be murdered in the Stab 3 script. Sidney is brought in to help unravel who is behind these killings, but she is barely holding onto her own sanity because of the trauma of past events.


It turns out that Roman (who had faked his own murder) is the killer known as Ghostface, the connection being that he is the son of Sidney's mother (her half-brother). He was born because Sidney's mother had slept with a well known director to get parts in his movies (Gale and her movie counterpart discovered Sid's mother's acting career, which brought forth somewhat a short-lived friendship, as fake Gale was killed towards the end). Roman tells Sidney that her mother left his father and cheated on him with Hank Loomis, causing Mrs. Loomis to leave her husband. So Roman told Billy Loomis why his mother had left his father, and told him to kill Maureen. Roman also told Billy to have an accomplice that was weak and easily willing to help him out, which turned out to be Stu Macher. Eventually, when Sidney confronts Roman, she "kills" him by shooting him with a gun she snuck in, but he was wearing a bullet-proof vest. He manages to shoot her in the heart, but she was also wearing a bullet-proof vest (one from the police station), and kills him. As usual, Roman, being the main villain, wasn't really dead and Dewey kills him for real after being told (by Sidney, the only one who knew of Roman's bulletproof vest) to shoot Roman in the head. Ghostface is the name of a fictional character and the main antagonist in the Scream trilogy. ...

Satirical/Self-Referencial Style

Once again, Scream 3 uses self-aware characters and generally references itself as a movie most of the time.


Most of the story is set in Hollywood, and focuses on the making of Stab 3, the Scream franchise's parody of itself. For instance, actors (Parker Posey and Matt Keeslar) are playing characters that are actors (Jennifer Jolie and Tom Prinze) playing characters based on Gale and Dewey respectively. There is a constant comparison between the "movie Gale" played by Jennifer and the "real" one.


"Jennifer Jolie" is a combination of Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. "Angelina Tyler" is a cominbation of Angelina Jolie and Liv Tyler. "Tom Prinze" is a combination of Tom Cruise and Freddie Prinze, Jr.


Jenny McCarthy's character of Sarah complains that she is playing a bit character that is killed off after two scenes. This is exactly what happens to Sarah, and the number of scenes she has in Scream 3.


The characters believe Randy's rules about surviving a trilogy, and by the end even Sidney herself believes she is in a trilogy. Several scenes take place on movie sets which are actually sets of the first film. The climax takes place in a producer's house, with various movie props and filming equipment figuring prominently. Finally, the movie literally ends with "the door being left open" for future installments.


There are also celebrity cameos (Carrie Fisher, Nancy O'Dell, Jay and Silent Bob), and general Hollywood references (Brad Pitt, Connie Chung, Seinfeld, etc).

The Rules

A signature device, started in Scream and continued in Scream 2 and Scream 3, was the typical "rules" for that type of horror movie being stated by the characters. In Scream 3, Sidney, Dewey, Gale and Randy's sister (Heather Matarazzo), watch a video made by Randy (Jamie Kennedy, in a cameo role) before his death in Scream 2; he states that if the third movie is just another sequel, then the standard rules for a sequel (given in Scream 2) apply. However, "If you find yourself dealing with an unexpected backstory, and a preponderance of exposition, then the sequel rules do not apply. Because you are not dealing with a sequel, you are dealing with the concluding chapter of a trilogy." The rules for the final concluding chapter of a trilogy are different: Scream is a 1996 horror film, directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. ... Scream 2 is a 1997 film, the second part of the Scream trilogy. ... Image:Matarazzo. ... This article is about the actor. ... Scream 2 is a 1997 film, the second part of the Scream trilogy. ...

  1. "You've got a killer who’s gonna be superhuman. Stabbing him won’t work, shooting him won’t work. Basically in the third one, you gotta cryogenically freeze his head, decapitate him, or blow him up."
  2. "Anyone, including the main character, can die. This means you, Sid."
  3. "The past will come back to bite you in the ass. Whatever you think you know about the past, forget it. The past is not at rest! Any sins you think were committed in the past are about to break out and destroy you."
  4. Basically... In the third movie? All bets are off.

Cameo appearances

Jay and Silent Bob, the popular characters from Kevin Smith's movies, appear as tourists visiting Sunrise Studios. In the original Scream, a VHS copy of their first film Clerks can be spotted in Stu Macher's house. Kevin Smith would later go on to include Wes Craven in a cameo as the director of a fictitious Scream 4 in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back; in addition, a copy of Scream 3 can be seen in the background of a scene taking place within a video store in Smith's 2004 film Jersey Girl.

Reception

The film set a record in its opening weekend for the number of screens in the United States: 3,467. This was later surpassed by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) with 3,762. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, known in the United States as Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, is a 2001 fantasy/adventure film based on the novel of the same name by J.K. Rowling. ...

Though the film had a sizeable opening weekend of over $34 million, it was the only entry in the series that failed to gross over $100 million, falling just short at $89 million.


Critically, the film received mixed reviews. Some critics appreciated the tone of violence (the film contains much less gore than its predecessors), but were disappointed with the plot. The movie was criticized for actually becoming the very thing that the SCREAM series spoofed upon.
