‘Scream’ Video Shows Roll Call Of Characters To Watch

As ever, it’s always someone you know…

On the eve of Thanksgiving, Paramount Pictures wants horror fans to be grateful that the next Scream installment is just weeks away. To keep everyone in the mood, a video was dropped that shows all the usual (and some new) suspects popping up in the new film. Check it out on this page, courtesy of JoBlo.com.

Scream–slated to hit theaters Jan. 14, 2022–stars the returning Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers, David Arquette as Dewey Riley and Marley Shelton as Judy Hicks. New kids on the block include Dylan Minnette, Kyle Gallner, Jack Quaid, Mason Gooding, Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mikey Madison, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Sonia Ammar.

The R-rated slasher flick–directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick–is set 25 years after “a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro” when “a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past,” according to the official synopsis.

The original 1996 Scream–from director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson–follows high school student Prescott as she becomes the target of the mysterious Ghostface. That first film earned $173 million on a $15-million budget and set the stage for a franchise that has–to date–raked in more than $600 million worldwide.
