Plenty of time for one more slash.

Scream VI--the next chapter in the classic horror series–is just a little more than a month away now, and fans can look forward to the longest entry in the franchise.

The horror pic–slated for theaters March 10–will clock in at 123 minutes, a full 12 minutes longer than Wes Craven’s 1996 original, according to Regal Cinemas and Paramount Pictures. More face time, no doubt, for Ghostface.

Scream VI is helmed by returning directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. Gillett said the new film “moves like it’s on rocket fuel. You sit down, it starts, and you get off two hours later feeling like you haven’t taken a breath.”

Returning for all the mayhem are legacy stars Courteney Cox, Hayden Panettiere, Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding–joined by newcomers Dermot Mulroney, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra and Henry Czerny.

Scream VI follows the survivors of the last Ghostface killings as they travel to New York City, where Tara starts to experience “manic psychological breakdowns–while seeing the ghosts of past killers,” according to the synopsis.

And Tara’s sister Sam tries to manipulate her by pretending to be Ghostface, but when those plans go awry, “three masked killers appear on the scene–posing the question of who will survive and who will be the final victim.”
