Horror fans can catch the Scream that started it all on the big screen before Ghostface slashes his way through the latest chapter in the franchise.

The Wes Craven masterwork will hit theaters Oct. 10, as reported by screenrant.com, to celebrate its 25th anniversary in a grand way. Hosted by Fathom Events, fans can sign up to be notified for the date and time tickets will go on sale. Theater locations and screening times have yet to be announced.

The upcoming Scream–from directors Tyler Gillette and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick–recently wrapped post-production and will land in theaters Jan. 14, 2002.

The original 1996 Scream–directed by Craven from a screenplay by Kevin Williamson–is credited with revitalizing the horror genre in the ’90s. The classic film earned $173 million on a budget of just $15 million, making it the highest-grossing slasher film until the release of 2018’s Halloween.

Scream–starring Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Courteney Cox, Matthew Lillard, Rose McGowan, Skeet Ulrich and Drew Barrymore–follows high schooler Sidney Prescott (Campbell) who becomes the target of Ghostface, a mysterious killer in a Halloween costume.
