Why Scream 7 Makes Sense For The Scream Franchise
Scream (2022) took the beloved meta-formula that Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson first introduced in 1996’s scream and offered its own modern take as the franchise entered all-new territory. Scream 6 looks set to continue this trend, as well as promising to feature the most brutal version of Ghostface yet. Having well and truly reignited theatergoers’ dormant love of the slasher franchise, it’s unlikely to stop now.
With Scream 6 taking the gang out of the familiar surroundings of Woodsboro, the scream The universe has been opened up to a number of new possibilities. Additionally, with the absence of franchise lead Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), the focus is expected to shift onto Barrera and Ortega’s characters, marking a brand-new path for the franchise to now continue down. Early reviews have praised Scream 6 for continuing to honor the franchise while still offering a genuinely terrifying movie, and with box office projections predicting a successful opening for this much-anticipated sequel.
Anticipation for Scream 6 is high for what looks to be an incredibly gory entry into the adored franchise. Just what will happen within the events of Scream 6 remain to be seen, particularly given that the film will play host to this leveled-up Ghostface killer. With Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett eager to make Scream 7 happen, perhaps it’s best to first wait and see just who manages to make it out of Scream 6 alive.
