The most terrifying words the people of Woodsboro could ever hear are – Ghostface is back. And this time, it’s true. In the new Scream featurette from Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group, we get a closer look into the next installment of this iconic franchise and a chance to see Ghostface in action. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are serving as the directors on the film alongside executive producer Kevin Williamson.
The Scream featurette gives us quite a bit of helpful information for the upcoming film. This time, Ghostface isn’t after Sidney (Neve Campbell) (that we know of) but actually after Sam Carpenter (Melissa Barrera). In the featurette, we see her sitting in front of Stu’s (Matthew Lillard) house from the first film. We know from the first trailer that Ghostface targets the relatives of the original killers, so I am guessing Sam is related to Stu somehow. Could that be the secret Ghostface references? Or is she hiding something else?
So, of course, Sam turns to Dewey (David Arquette) for help. He looks like he has seen better days, but I can only imagine what he is going through after everything from the last four films. With Dewey involved, of course, we get Sidney and Gale (Courtney Cox), who have plans to end this Ghostface once and for all. During the Scream featurette, we get some more tidbits from the cast about how this movie doesn’t just tie together the original generation with the new one but takes things to a whole new level.
I am here for everything Scream has to offer. This new film looks like the proper comeback we have wanted to see. The skeptic in me was worried that this latest installment wouldn’t live up to the hype I have built around the franchise and Wes Craven‘s work. But, everything we have seen so far is proving otherwise. The new film stars Campbell, Barrera, Arquette, Cox, Jenna Ortega, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sonia Ammar, Jack Quaid and Mary Shelton.
Scream will hit theaters on January 14, 2022. We’ve dropped the new featurette below for you to enjoy! What do you think Sam’s big secret is? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
