NOW WE HAVE came to film six and the 27th year of the shout franchise, and despite the death of original director Wes Craven in 2015, and despite the departure of franchise star Neve Campbell ahead of the 2023 production scream VI started, the franchise is actually stronger than ever. Seriously, once again in the hands of co-directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillettscream vi has
received rave reviews and you are looking for a high franchise Opening weekend at the box office.
Why is that? It is likely that the rotating nature of the shout series. While franchises like Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, other Hallowe’en keep trotting with their signature villains, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers,out again and again shout he has a ghost face Ghostface looks the same in every movie, yes, but there’s always someone new under the mask of him, who he keeps stabbing like a maniac. the mystery of shout has always been the draw, and in an age where movies like knives out have been mega hits, horror fans have loved to hold on to a bit of mystery with their horror. Holding on tight to the armrests while wondering who’s wearing that creepy mask this time is just a good movie moment.
ace scream VI hits theaters, it feels like the perfect time to look back on those who have donned the cape and mask before. There have been many stabbings in the shout movies, and while it all makes for a great fun horror movie, there’s also a lot to each different Ghostface. Obviously, it’s a bit hard to judge what happens when our killers are camouflaged, masked, and largely silent, so we’ll judge them based on their entirety of character: their motivation, the logic behind it, and of course. Of course, how convincing are the actors as absolute maniacs.
Let’s do it.
