Scream 3

Template:Infobox Movie

Scream 3 (2000) (theatrical name "Scr3am") is the final installment in the successful Scream trilogy of satirical horror films. It follows Scream 2.

The film stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox, each reprising their roles from the first two films. This part is the only one within the Scream trilogy not to be written by Kevin Williamson.

Having experienced the trauma of the first two pictures, Campbell's Sydney Prescott now lives in a secluded area of California where she works as a rape crisis counselor from her home. Her whereabouts are unknown even to her surviving friends (save for Dewey, played by Arquette). Gale Weathers (Cox) has become a hugely successful news reporter (of a sensationalist style) thanks to the books she wrote revolving around the murders of the first two films (and subsequent films based on the books).

The film begins when Cotton Weary (Liev Schreiber), the man long-ago suspected of killing Sydney's mother, is slaughtered (along with his girlfriend). Suspected of being related to the original killings, Los Angeles police (including Mark Kincaid, played by Patrick Dempsey) want to contact Sydney to question her. It seems a photograph of Maureen Prescott, Sydney's mother, was left at the murder scene.

Meanwhile Gale Weathers visits the set of the latest film in the "Stab" series, "Stab 3: Return to Woodsboro." There she discovers a set that looks identical to the scene of the horrific 'real' events that plagued her in the first "Scream". She also meets the various performers portraying the real people she knew or knows: Angelina Tyler (Emily Mortimer) as "Sydney", Sarah Darling (Jenny McCarthy) as "Candy", Tom Prinze (Matt Keeslar) as "Dewey" and Jennifer Jolie (Parker Posey) as Gale herself.

Soon these actors are being killed off in the same order as they are slated to be murdered in their script. Sydney is brought in to help unravel who is behind these killings, but she is barely holding onto her own sanity because of the trauma of past events. This leads many to question whether she herself may be responsible for the new batch of murders.

The film features cameos by Heather Matarazzo, Carrie Fisher, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes.
