Surprise, Sidney. Guess who’s back?

Unfortunately for her and the rest of the residents of Woodsboro, it’s old Ghostface, that masked, horror-movie-obsessed killer from four previous Scream films. Granted, in each movie, Ghostface has been a role inherited by a different (or multiple different) psychopaths. And so a decade since the last Scream, a new Ghostface emerges to terrorize Sidney (Neve Campbell) and the rest of Woodsboro all over again. Also returning for this new Scream are original cast members Courteney Cox (as reporter Gale Weathers) and David Arquette (as bumbling police officer Dewey Riley).

The previous four Scream movies were all directed by horror legend Wes Craven, but he sadly passed away in 2015. In his place, this latest film is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, the filmmaking team known as Radio Silence. (Their other movies include Ready or Not and Southbound.) Here’s the trailer for their new Scream:

There’s also a whole new batch of images from the film as well...
