    For the initiated, the third time's a charm. For everyone else, it's just a scream.

  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I enjoyed every moment of this densely plotted final chapter, and most other fans will too. Full Review
  • John Patterson

    It's a pleasure to report that Scream 3 is an absolute riot, jammed with spicy cameos.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Ernest Hardy

    It's a pleasant surprise to note how good Scream 3 really is. Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    Genuinely scary and also highly amusing.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Funny and brisk, with enough good lines to make the comedy more satisfying than the somewhat routine but still unsettling jolts to the spine.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    A crafty and well-crafted wrap-up that really does bring a satisfying sense of closure to the franchise.

    Variety Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    (Craven) and his Scream dream team have done a frightfully good job of killing off and wrapping up the popular horror series.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jim Peterson

    Scream 3 also has wit and intelligence, but at their core the Scream movies are still slasher films and this one is no exception.

  • Gemma Files

    But it IS enjoyable. Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    A lot more fun than "Blair Witch," and it's more relaxed and goofy than its two predecessors -- a farcical bloodbath.

    Slate Full Review
  • Rita Kempley

    It's plenty entertaining, but the ending is disappointing, given the buildup.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Just isn't very scary.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It's the chemistry between the Arquettes (they met on the first film and married after the second) and their rapport with Campbell that sustains Scream 3 through its overly convoluted plot.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    At its savviest, Scream 3 is a cheeky conceptual conceit, cheaply executed for the sake of achieving trilogy status. Instead, it's like a carnival that's been in town a week too long.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Richard Schickel

    Not so good is the absence of hip cross-references to the classic horror tropes.

    Time Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Essentially an interlacing of irony and gotcha! Scenes.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Marc Caro

    Although Scream 3 is often clever in the way it interweaves the worlds of "Scream," "Stab" and life outside the theater, it's not exactly groundbreaking.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Edward Guthmann

    Campy, overwrought and gleefully cannibalistic in the way it references and regurgitates horror flicks of yore, Scream 3 fulfills its modest ambitions by delivering a glib slasher spoof for the mall crowd.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Even if Scream 3 lacks the punch and verve of the first two installments, it manages to wring some ironically metaphysical comedy from the movie-within-a-movie motif.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Where Scream 3 triumphs is in its wacky, take-no-prisoners, I am a Juggernaut of Terror, Hee, Hee attitude, which wisely makes room for some downright surreal moments amongst the carnage.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    About the only thing the movie kills with any decisiveness is your time.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • John Hartl

    Simply can't sustain interest for much of its final hour. Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Slower, more earnest, and not as gory.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    It's got turns, it's got an attractive cast that gets shish-kabobed with ruthless regularity. It's just tired.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    At 116 minutes, this third installment lumbers along like a serial killer in shackles.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    A lame little flat liner.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Cowardice and cliché - not a tasty combination.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    What's left is a husk with all the superficial features of a Scream movie and none of the heart, brains, guts or laughs.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Logic, motivation, suspense -- anything that might make the film frightening or resonant -- is buried under Dolby blams, medulla-shaming dialogue, and a rain of overdubbed hunting-knife schwings that grate like a 3 a.m. car alarm.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    It's time to run, screaming.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Christopher Brandon

    First rule of a film trilogy: Part 3 sucks. See "The Godfather 3,"" Alien 3,"" Jaws 3." Even "Return of the Jedi" was just a rehash of "Star Wars" with muppets. Add Scream 3 to that trend.
