What’s your favorite scary movie?
A month ahead of the release for the fifth movie installment to the Scream franchise, the final poster for the movie has been unmasked. Featuring the playful yet sinister tagline “the killer is on this poster,” the full main cast appears in the foreground with Ghostface looming behind them. In addition to the cast, we also see the iconic house used for the final party in the original Scream (1996).
While it was initially a nail-biter for directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett to see if three integral members of the original cast would join, their dreams came true with the return of Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette. The fifth installment, Scream, is the first movie in the franchise’s 25 years that is not directed by the late horror giant Wes Craven. Thankfully, audiences will get to see final-girl Sidney Prescott, resourceful journalist Gale Weathers, and the brave lawman Dewey Riley face off against Ghostface once again. No promises the trio will all make it out alive this time, despite having lasted four movies up to now.
Jack Quaid (The Boys), Melissa Barrera (In the Heights) and Jenna Ortega (You) join the ensemble headed by Campbell, Cox, and Arquette. Dylan Minette (Goosebumps), Mason Gooding (Let It Snow), Kyle Gallner (Ghosts of War), Jasmin Savoy Brown (Love), and Mikey Madison (Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood) are also bringing new faces to the franchise. Marley Shelton is returning from Scream 4 as Deputy Judy Hicks.
The final poster reveal marks the first day of “12 Screams for the Holidays,” a series unraveling on the Scream movies’ social media accounts leading up to Christmas. As promised by Campbell and Cox in the promotional video below, there will be a new shocking surprise everyday. Instead of leaving the chimney open for Santa this year, you might want to board it up to keep Ghostface out. The Scream franchise is on Twitter and Instagram @ScreamMovies.
Scream will be in theaters January 14, 2022. You can find our continued coverage for the movie here.
