What’s your favorite scary movie? It just might be the new Scream film. The fifth in the franchise is the first without Wes Craven on board, but is very much in homage to the great filmmaker… and it shows.
It appears that Directors, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are the absolute right guys for the job of putting Scream back on its feet. Their film Ready or Not was a blast and mirrors a lot of the same energy that we see in the teaser.
We still have some way to go till the film’s release (Jan. 2022), but this is a nice bit of Scream to tide us over. It gives fans exactly what they need to ride out the rest of the journey.
The synopsis for Scream goes like this:
“The film follows the story of a young woman who returns to her old hometown, only to encounter horrific murder cases connected to a notorious masked serial killer.”
Scream stabs its way into theaters on January 14, 2022.
