About two-thirds of a creepy, unsettling story that comes unglued in the final 30 minutes.

The movie feels like it was assembled from an unready draft even though visually, there’s no denying the film’s strengths.

An unnecessary, joyless affair, it plods along offering “canonical” tidbits to fans but very little to casual viewers.

The kind of bland, by-the-numbers origin story that shows comic book movies at their least innovative.

When an old property achieves new life, it’s because of better creative decisions than the ones made by the men and women behind the fifth "Scream".
