The first two "Scream" movies were clever, building great suspense while poking fun at other horror movies. This one attempts to wrap up the trilogy and remain as sharp as those entries, but falls a bit short. It gets too frantic near the end and tidies things up too neatly. But a worthwhile rent anyway. (as with many horror franchises, this one was resurrected in 2011 with a plan for 3 sequels, starting with "Scream 4")
Enter the world of Beatniks and BoHos in this crazy Corman flick. Pathologically shy artist (#!@%*# Miller) finds his way to artistic fame by accidental means, and soon the freaks, druggies, self-absorbed poets and slumming socialites of the coffeehouse are all over him as the 'next' big thing? But how is he actually creating his ghoulish looking works?
Great fun, poking fun at the coffeehouse late 50s set while being truly campily original.
