The trailer for the fifth installment of Scream has arrived, and it’s time to feel petrified in your kitchen all over again.

The legendary horror franchise is returning in early 2022, and Ghostface is back for another found. 

.

The first trailer for the movie shows the return of OGs Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), as they warn a new group of teenagers in Woodsboro who are being targeted by Ghostface. 

And although the killer is after a new group of youths, they still have their eye on Sidney, as we hear them say: ‘Hello Sidney… it’s an honour’ – seemingly at Stu’s house from the original movie.

Chills. 

The original film’s opening gets an up to date twist as Ghostface manages to unlock the doors of his victim’s house remotely – and we’re guessing Jenny Ortega is in for a very Drew Barrymore ending.

Dewey calls Sidney to tell her: ‘It’s happening. Three attacks so far. Do you have a gun?’, with our final girl replying: ‘I’m Sidney Prescott. Of course I have a gun.’

Our originals are on hand to help save the teens being terrorised, with Dewey warning them that there are ‘rules to surviving’.

And they’ll stop at nothing to get Ghostface at last, as Sidney says: ‘I won’t sleep until he’s in the ground.’

It has been 10 years since Scream 4 came out – and 25 since the original – and it was expected that was the end of the franchise following the death of director Wes Craven in 2015.

Campbell told Variety: ‘I had been really apprehensive about doing another one. People had asked in the past whether I would do another one without Wes or whether I would make another one. I always felt like it’d be too difficult to do it without Wes. He was the master of these films. He did such a beautiful job on them. We were a family.’

However, she was convinced to return by directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.

She said: ‘They actually wrote me a letter and they said they basically are directors because of the [Scream] films. They are directors because of Wes Craven and they’re really so excited to be a part of these films and what an honour it is to do them, and that they really want to do justice to Wes and honour his legacy.’

Scream is out January 2022.
