Scream VI: Directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett. With Courteney Cox, Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Jasmin Savoy Brown. In the next installment, the survivors of the Ghostface killings leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter in New York City.
My wife and I watched all five of the Scream films in an exceptionally coordinated effort in the 3 days leading up to our AMC reservations for Scream VI. Watching them all nearly back to back like that really shows how the franchise and the genre itself has evolved from a navel-gazing, self referential treatise on slashers to something that’s more than the sum of it’s goofy parts. There’s a few things that make no sense whatsoever in #6, but those things are within the wrappings of a well made film, with some serious star power doing their best to be the most alluring targets of Ghostface yet.
Honestly, this was a good film, just sad that they’ve started to reduce the body counts so low now.
