Marley Shelton is a nice addition to "Scream 4"

Marley Shelton as Dr. Dakota Block in "Planet Terror" (2007)

"I feel like some old-school screen diva when I talk about this stuff, but I've been watching dailies lately, and I realize that my eyes are kind of...large. If I turn them too far, I look like I'm possessed."
-Marley Shelton

"The film is well paced, well shot and and has a fantastic supporting cast, including Anthony Anderson (Transformers, The Departed), Allison Brie from TV's Mad Men and Community, Adam Brody (Thank You for Smoking, Cop Out), Mary McDonnell (Independence Day, Donnie Darko), Marley Shelton (Sin City, Grindhouse), Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Fanboys) and Anna Paquin (Almost Famous, X-Men).
Scream 4 offers something new, while not deviating too far from the formula. While overall it reminded me of Scream 2, it is not quite as strong as the original two films". Source:

“Scream 4″ opens with one of those oh-so-clever (but at this point, expected) movie within a movie within a movie gags, and features cameos aplenty from big names in small roles. Kristen Bell and Anna Paquin show up in essentially one-scene-one-kill appearances, probably because they grew up on the first three “Scream” movies and just wanted to get in on the action. An amusing Mary McDonnell is wasted as Jill’s mom, but Marley Shelton as Dewey’s comely Deputy is a nice addition. “Community’s” Alison Brie is also deliciously bitchy as Sidney’s PR flack, while Culkin and Knudsen, as the A/V geeks, are just irritating. Most of the characters in “Scream 4″ are disposable, with most of them meeting gruesome, audience-endearing ends.
There’s a reason the previous “Scream” movies continue to pull in new audiences, and “Scream 4″ is no different. It’s the kind of movie that you enjoy watching with some friends and then introducing new people to. The franchise’s main selling point -its biggest draw -is that it confirms its core audience’s opinions of themselves as clever horror movie buffs.

In any case, longtime fans of the franchise will enjoy watching the new bloods spill theirs (in buckets and gushers, oh my) while still appreciating Williamson’s careful, even reverential handling of Sidney. Sure, “Scream 4″ is basically more of the same, but it LOOKS newer, and it’s still as clever as you are, so let’s not dig too deep, alright?" Source:

In the clip, the girls confirmed that they got weird phones calls,asking them what’s their favorite scary movie. Kirby (Hayden Panettiere) said it was a killer’s voice from Sydney’s life story. Then Kirby said she didn’t get a call,but the other two girls did,and started to wonder if that meant she’s next to die.
