Plot 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. Neve Campbell (“Sidney Prescott”), Courteney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) and David Arquette (“Dewey Riley”) return to their iconic roles in Scream alongside Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar.
What do you all think of the trailer? No pun intended, but the original “Scream” is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. I’ve enjoyed this franchise even if I felt the sequels were all inferior to the original. Now, with “Ready Or Not” directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillette at the helm, I’m curious to see where this franchise could possibly go without feeling redundant. Yes, there is a sense of nostalgia cast over the whole trailer, with the original leading trio of actors being self-aware of the terrifying situation they, once again, find themselves in. While a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor is applied, I’m slightly concerned that the fifth installment in this franchise won’t deliver anything new that we haven’t already received with the previous four films.
