Scream to Extend Franchise with Fifth Film

Scream to Extend Franchise with Fifth Film

Tony Reynoso, Senior

The Fifth installment of the series Scream will be released next month.

After a quarter of a century since a dash of fierce homicides stunned the peaceful town of Woodsboro, another executioner picks up the Ghostface mask and starts focusing on the gathering of young teens to revive mysteries from the town’s dangerous past in Scream 5.

The cast of Scream 5 features well-known stars alongside upcoming celebrities. Courteney Cox, Neve Campbell and David Arquette, who starred in 1996’s smash-hit Scream, will be making a return to the series after almost 25 years. Dylan Minnette, Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega will be introduced into the Scream cast.

Actor Matthew Lillard is rumored to be making a special appearance in this new film. Matthew played Stu Macher in 1996’s Scream, where he was killed early in the film, but that hasn’t stopped Lillard from making surprise cameos in past Scream sequels. Fans are excited to see if and how he’ll pop back up into the story this time. 

Senior, Robin Banuelos is looking forward to seeing the new film: “I love horror movies so much, and the Scream movies are my favorite ones because it’s a mix of horror and comedy, which makes a great combo.”

Scream 5 is set to release on January 14th, 2022, and is rated R for horror violence, foul language and suggestive themes.
