Scream VI Movie Review: Requel Sequel Supreme

Watch this movie right now:

Ghostface is back and this time he is in the Big Apple. This sixth installment was bigger and nastier than its predecessor and we absolutely loved it. This was a Ghostface at his most primal and at his best resulting to an experience that was the scariest and most thrilling "Scream" film yet. While it may not be the best in the franchise, it sustains the momentum that its predecessors have built up in almost three decades of screams.

Following the Ghostface killings, the four young survivors decide to leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter in New York hoping that this may help them move on from their tragic experience. But with Sam Carpenter (Melissa Barrera) being the focus of internet conspiracy theorists, she is unable to escape notoriety. And as murders linked to Ghostface start to happen near them, Sam and her sister Tara (Jenna Ortega) must not only escape the clutches of their relentless killer but also the judgements of those around them thinking Sam is the real killer.

At this point, the success of the "Scream" franchise is just ridiculously inspiring. You would think that they would have ran out of ideas at this point but their films just keeps evolving to the times staying relevant and true to its formula without fail. "Scream VI" was no exception to its forerunners and this was the most brutal "Scream" yet. On its first scene alone, you know that this is going to be a familiar yet different kind of experience as the sixth film was able to mold together its legacy and its present seamlessly (much like "Scream (2022)" was able to achieve) sprinkling in its own flair and surprises to keep its fans up on their toes. As expected, "Scream VI" will be a guessing game on who the killer is and this was one aspect that made this film a whole lot of fun. It was silly at points and yet as satisfying as any other film before it. But the strongest point for "Scream VI" was its unrelenting nature. This is the bloodiest, goriest, and most brutal Ghostface yet and Ghostface wasn't scared to kill anyone along its path - much like how Michael Myers operates. If previous Ghostfaces had a tendency to be clumsy, this time it brought its A-game and it was angry and furious towards the Carpenters that upped the tensions and thrills. Overall, "Scream VI" is another winner for a franchise that has produced a consistent stream of great thrills since 1997. Love live "Scream" and long live Ghostface!
