Scream VI is a prequel to 2022’s Scream, yet directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett as well as screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick don’t let that stop it from being innovative. It’s an entertaining horror film that subverts audience expectations and cinematic conventions in an enjoyable manner.
Starring Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega and Hayden Panettiere.
It’s a Scream Movie
In 1996, Wes Craven’s Scream revolutionized the slasher genre with its meta commentary on horror movies. The movie introduced Ghostface, a masked killer who seeks to eliminate Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) after her mother’s controversial murder in Woodsboro, Vermont.
The Slasher movie franchise has since spawned numerous sequels, with an eighth film currently in development. This time around, it takes place in New York City.
Director Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and screenwriters James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick return with a remarkable sequel that builds upon everything we loved from the first film while becoming even more self-referential than ever before in the series’ history.
This film’s plot is more intricate and captivating than anything we’ve seen before, creating a compellingly complex world. Hayden Panettiere returns as Kirby Reed in an impressive return performance. While not perfect, Scream fans should definitely give this movie a watch.

It’s a Scream Requel
In this long-awaited sixth installment of the Scream franchise, Sam (Mississa Barrera) and Tara Carpenter have left Woodsboro behind them and moved to New York City; twins Mindy Meeks-Martin (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Chad Meeks (Mason Gooding) also made a fresh start here as well.
Scream VI is filled with classic B-movie thrills, including a humorous take on the requel genre. Writers Guy Busick and Jamie Vanderbilt create an interesting meta twist on the Scream series that pays homage to its past while also poking fun at it, even as they keep up with its gory death rates.
Requels are becoming an increasingly common trend in Hollywood, where reboot-sequel hybrids bring legacy characters together with fresh faces and blood to rekindle the old flame. Examples of meta-reboots include Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Ghostbusters: Afterlife or Blade Runner 2049.
It’s a Scream Franchise
In 1996, Scream (and its several sequels) launched a new genre of horror movies that parodied and subverted some popular tropes in modern horror cinema. Since then, this series has become an integral part of our culture.
Scream VI takes place 25 years after the original film and follows four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsboro behind and start a new chapter in their lives. This time around, they’re joined by directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from the original crew.
Scream VI also features an insightful meta-commentary about horror movie sequel rules, with characters reflecting on their own experiences within the genre. Unfortunately, Scream VI feels a bit familiar and overly trite by the end, yet it remains enjoyable with plenty of charm – particularly its final reveal spill! With more leeway, however, Scream VI could’ve been even better.
It’s a Scream Reboot
The original slasher film franchise, Scream, is now riding a nostalgic wave. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett have capitalized on this sentiment by rebooting the plot in Scream Reboot.
This episode follows the survivors of the Ghostface killings — Sam (Mississa Barrera), Tara (Jenna Ortega) and Richie (Jack Quaid) as they embark on their college careers in New York City. Unfortunately, all four siblings become stalked by a slasher known as Ghostface during their college tenures.
Though it may appear the franchise is moving away from its core elements, Scream V provides plenty for fans to enjoy. James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick bring all of what made the last installment so great to this sequel, including great new characters, sharp dialogue, and brutal kills. Furthermore, this Scream manages to feel unique within its own universe while still paying homage to the original – an impressive feat for any horror franchise.
