SCREAM trailer – the franchise gets another sequel in 2022, and here’s your first look

As far as horror franchises go, SCREAM is right up there with some of the most popular, and one of the few to regularly bring back its key players, not just the masked killer motif. The first film hit way back in 1996, spawning three sequels so far, and now comes the fifth, simply titled SCREAM… how does Hollywood not find that confusing? The new HALLOWEEN did it, and CANDYMAN did it, despite being sequels and not specifically reboots. But the new SCREAM is a sequel with the same characters, yet still uses the basic title of the first film. This might be the result of SCREAM 4 or “SCRE4M” being a bit of a let down with critics and fans. Wes Craven started the franchise, but passed away in 2015, and many wondered if the legacy of these films died with him. In this new take, the case includes franchise alumni David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Roger L. Jackson, and Marley Shelton, and adds in Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Mason Gooding, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Dylan Minnette, Mikey Madison, Sonia Ben Ammar, and Kyle Gallner. This comes from the directing team of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (READY OR NOT), and hits theaters in January. Check out the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
