Anyway, this Scream trailer looks damn fun. There are teens to stab, Sidney Prescott once again drawn home by yet another copycat killer, and certain rules to survive the meta horror extravaganza.
Here’s a synopsis:
Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past.
Scream features a ton of returning players. (How did they all last this long?) We have Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, and Marley Shelton all reprising their roles. They’re joined by a new generation of Woodsboro teen murder victims like Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, Dylan Minnette, Jack Quaid, and more. It’s a veritable murder buffet for Ghostface.
Wes Craven passed away in 2015, so he obviously can’t return to the helm for the fifth installment, but it does look to be in good hands. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the duo behind Ready or Not, who are also known as Radio Silence, take over the big chair, which is a promising development.
We’ll see who lives, who dies, and how it all shakes out when Scream hits theaters January 14, 2022. It will probably ask what our favorite scary movie is, so think on that for a while.
