Scream changed the horror genre for the better or the worse, depending on your viewpoint. It certainly left its mark on cinema.


Since the first one did so well, there was then a sequel, then another, then another. All of them had the same premise. Ghostface chases Sydney around and people get stabbed. The killer is annoyed at Sydney for some reason. As you can tell, I was a fan of the first one. The sequels are just churned-out turds from the unimaginative in Hollywood.

The beginning of 2022 saw the fifth Scream hit the cinemas and not everyone thinks like me, since it took over $100 million worldwide at the box office. Paramount and Spyglass have ordered another sequel, Scream 6.

Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyle Gillett are set to return as directors when production starts this summer. James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick are back as writers. The original creator of Scream, Kevin Williamson, will serve as executive producer since it is money for old rope. Spyglass and Paramount have said in a statement:

“We are tremendously grateful to the fans around the world who enthusiastically received our film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy and Project X have in store for our Woodsboro family.”

The company Radio Silence, who are executive producers, said:

“Working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators — and in the lineage Wes and Kevin so expertly built — has been the thrill of a lifetime, and we’re so excited to bring the next chapter in the Scream saga to life.”

‘Talented family of creators’ who cannot think up their own IP.
