We are finally heading back to Woodsboro for perhaps one final rip with the Ghostface killer.
A franchise that has spanned 4 decades, seen countless murders and 4 films. The Scream franchise is going back to its roots. Ever since the first instalment haunted teens, Scream has terrorized people for years on end. While some sequels have stumbled a bit, it appears that director Matt Bettinelli is reverting back to what made this franchise special. This trailer feels like classic Scream.
The killer is always someone you know, that’s the tag-line for the next film that is brining back the powerhouse trifecta of Sidney, Dewey and Gale, perhaps this time it’s one of them, or even worse, one of them will finally bite the dust. Reinventing this franchise is hardwork, the premise of calling someone on the phone before you kill them seems so outdated, yet, they’ve made it work this entire time. Holding back on the whole meta idea of Scream, this just feels like we are back in the beginning where we will be getting a classic slash em up type of movie that promises no one is safe and the reveal of the killer will truly be rewarding.
We haven’t visited Woodsboro in over a decade and now we are back and everything is going horribly as usual. But this time it’s different. Ghostface is picking off one by one and those people happen to be related to those original victims of the Woodsboro murders.
A great young looking cast, with the help of the dream team. Scream promises to be one hell of a sequel.
