The sixth installment in the iconic horror franchise surpasses last year’s comeback film by being a more suspenseful, gruesome, and impressive story that will leave you guessing from beginning to end. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett return to the director’s chair. They direct a stronger film by raising the stakes to the point where anyone can be the killer and tricking the audience into trusting their favorite characters. This movie also features the most dangerous version of Ghostface to date, and that is thanks to his original kills, brilliant voice-over work by Roger L. Jackson, and the choice to set this film in New York City was a smart decision because the film offers a dark atmosphere in a setting that’s bigger for Ghostface to cause trouble compared the town of Woodsboro. Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, and Jenna Ortega reprise their roles as the group of survivors now dubbed “The Core Four,” their performances and chemistry in this film are excellent. Courteney Cox and Hayden Panettiere also return as Gale Weathers and Kirby Reed, giving great performances in the movie. The supporting cast features a new list of suspects delivering great performances, which includes Jack Champion, Henry Czerny, Liana Liberato, Dermot Mulroney, Devyn Nekoda, Tony Revolori, Josh Segarra, and Samara Weaving. Thanks to its brilliant direction, creative kills, and incredible performances by Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, Courteney Cox, and Hayden Panettiere, “Scream VI” breathes new life into a franchise that was thought to be over and prove to have exciting new material to offer. The film also showed fans that last year’s “Scream” was the start of something special, and this film manages to be even better, making it the best Scream film since the original, which was released in 1996.
