New “Scream” Trailer Promises a New Era of Scares

October or not, 1996's Scream (and its sequel) is by far my favorite horror film. I've been to a Scream-athon at the New Beverly in Los Angeles, attended the premiere of Scream 4, and constantly obsess over the most minute occurrence involving the franchise.

With that said, it should come as no surprise that the first trailer drop for the new film, also confusingly titled Scream, has me both anxious and giddy.

Will Neve Campbell's Sydney Prescott die? How will directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett fare without Wes Craven? And how does a film centered around a caller transition to a culture where few people actually pick up their phones?

David Arquette, Courtney Cox, and Marley Shelton join Campbell as franchise returnees. Joining them in Woodsboro are newcomers Jenna Ortega, Dylan Minnette, Jack Quaid, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sonia Anwar, Mikey Madison, and Mason Gooding.

It's a new film with a new set of rules. Find out what they are when Scream hits theaters January 14, 2022.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
