Clever but not scary

The first two Screams were pretty good, especially the first. They walked a line between tongue-in-cheek Hollywood commentary and terror. With the third and final installment, the formula falls apart. The commentary has faded into indulgent self-referentialism, and the density of plot supporting it is too much to believe, edging out the scary moments almost entirely.
