There are few horror franchises more influential than the Scream series.
First launched in 1996 with the excellent Scream, the meta-comedy slasher franchise from horror master Wes Craven broke box-office records and spawned a host of imitators, very few of which could get even close to Scream’s electric mix of slasher thrills and actually funny self-aware genre commentary.
In the decades since, four more Scream movies have been made, each offering their own take on the state of the horror genre, and operating as time capsules for their respective eras of horror. Wes Craven directed the first four movies in the series; after his death, direction duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett took over for 2022’s Scream and the upcoming Scream VI. The new one, coming out in March, looks to shake things up by bringing Ghostface to New York City, and it seems like this one’s coming for the fans.
