The scream you’re hearing is growing louder.
Only a year after the newly-revived Scream franchise killed it to the tune of $140M, the Ghostface is back and stabbing again with Scream VI. This being the first film without Neve Campbell as “final girl” Sidney Prescott, we’ll have to see if the new generation of prey, along with a couple of holdovers, can carry the momentum forward.
Another new aspect of this latest sequel? No more Woodsboro. While previous films have left that familiar killing ground, this time we see that Ghostface is taking a swipe at New York City, which is where siblings Sam and Tamara Carpenter (Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega) have fled. But can any place be far enough away for Sam, who was revealed to be the illegitimate daughter of the original Ghostface, Billy Loomis?
Also returning are Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers, Jasmine Savoy-Brown and Mason Gooding as twins Mindy and Chad, and back for the first time since Scream 4 is Hayden Panattiere as Kirby Reed. Betting odds have to be on her as the new Ghostface, right?
Or perhaps it’ll be a new addition to the franchise, such as Dermot Mulroney, Samara Weaving, Henry Czerny, Tony Revolori, Liana Liberato, or Avatar 2‘s Jack Champion?
Scream VI is once again directed by Radio Silence duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, and hits theaters on March 31st 2023.
