After 25 years of the original Scream releasing, they are finally back with a new movie. This is their 5th Scream movie and it will be released on January 14th, 2022. The movie is around the 2 hour mark and they released their last trailer for the movie on January 11th, 2022.

The directors for this movie are Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, this is the first time that Wes Craven is not the director for a Scream movie since he passed away in 2015. Wes Craven was an amazing director for iconic horror movies such as Nightmare On Elm Street, Scream, Freddy Vs Jason and many more. The directors are of course bringing back the stars from the first movie and some new characters as well.

Neve Campbell is playing Sidney Prescott, David Arquette is playing Dewey Riley and Courtney Cox as Gale Weathers. This movie was shot back in November of 2020 and was in Wilmington, North Carolina.

In the new Scream trailer, they reveal how knowing the Horror Rules is not enough to survive. So far reviews are saying that this upcoming Scream isn’t your typical scary movie, instead it’s a nostalgic feeling since it is from the mid-90s.

¨Its very much your fathers Scream. You’re not going to be scared by it.¨ stated by Joshua Rothkopf from

A lot of Scream fans had mixed feelings and didn’t know what to expect when they heard they were rebooting Scream.  The reviews now are filled with different sides. Some say that the film was amazing, while others say that there is potential for the movie to be better.

¨I was ecstatic to know the original cast would be returning, but with Wes Craven’s passing in 2015, who would beat helm, and would they be able to live up to Craven’s vision?¨ stated by Dave Millet on google reviews.
