An image from Scream 2022 shows Ghostface brandishing a knife while standing over a perceived victim played by Kyle Gallner as the new character Vincent.
The new Scream The movie shared an image from the upcoming movie, with Ghostface standing over a perceived victim played by Kyle Gallner. Scream 2022 is the fifth installment of the Scream franchise and the first film in the series not directed by horror icon Wes Craven following his death in 2015, featuring Ready or not directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett taking the helm. Series mainstays Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox are confirmed to reprise their roles, along with new cast members Gallner, Melissa Barrera and Jack Quaid.
the Scream The films follow Sidney Prescott (Campbell) as he tries to uncover the various identities that take on the persona of Ghostface, a masked assassin who stalks and murders his victims with a knife. Director Gillett has indicated that the new film is slated to be the first of several. With the movie called Scream instead of Shout 5It is clear that the writers intend it to be a new beginning for the franchise.
the Scream Instagram (Screams) posted a picture from the Ghostface movie standing on Gallner’s character Vince in a parking lot at night. Vince is lying on his stomach with Ghostface brandishing a knife, looking like he’s moving towards Vince to deliver a killing blow. The legend says: “Play dead to me“Which implies that this is what Ghostface is saying to Vince when he approaches his victim.
Scream is famous for revitalizing the slasher genre with his mix of horror and comedy, bringing a touch of self-awareness to his performance. The new movie seems to have a more serious tone than the previous entries. The trailers and released material do not contain any charming self-referential comedy that has made previous films memorable. The decision to take a more serious tone could also reflect that the film is trying to be a new beginning for the franchise. However, there is a lightness to this recent post that hints at a funnier movie than the one being advertised.
When the original Scream It came out in 1996, it was a hit for being self-aware and genuinely terrifying. Subsequent films have attempted to replicate the success with decidedly mixed results. Still, the idea of combining elements of horror with comedy has proven to be a hit in the years since, with Shall, The end Girls, and Shawn of the dead as examples. Although with so many horror comedies, it could be beneficial to Scream 2022 to bring a more serious entry into the franchise, with straight slashers being an increasingly rare movie class. Sidney Prescott is not the character she was in 1996, and the public has changed with her, and perhaps she can take a more serious tone. Scream the edge you need to stand out.
