They say that all good things come to an end, and in this case, it’s true. The fifth installment of the Scream series, Scream 5, is just on the verge of its release. This final chapter of the horror franchise includes a new killer who is being pursued by Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), and Dewey Riley (David Arquette).
Scream has had a long and legendary journey. The original Scream was released in 1996, following the story of Sidney Prescott as she becomes victim to Ghostface – an unknown killer who targets her and her friends on Halloween night. This film led into two sequels: Scream II (1997) and Scream III (2000). These three films brought horror back to movie screens with their shocking twists that were both unexpected yet satisfyingly familiar at the same time. In 2004, Wes Craven took us all by surprise when he announced there would be four new chapters added onto his groundbreaking trilogy: Scream IV through VI…and now it’s over!
The opening scene of Scream V is set in Woodsboro, California. We watch as Sidney’s long-lost cousin Jill (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) moves to town and seems to want nothing more than a fresh start. But when she makes some new friends at her high school, she finds herself thrown into the middle of another mystery: someone is killing students in their sleep!
The second scene starts off with teenager Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere), who was revealed on Scream IV to be Ghostface’s daughter, receiving an ominous phone call from “Daddy” telling her that it will all end this time…and then we are pulled back six months earlier where events take shape for what will eventually become one of cinema’s most talked-about franchises ever.”
The cast also includes Sydney’s daughter Jill who just moved back to town after being away for many years, Dewey Riley Jr., Sidney’s onetime boyfriend from high school who became chief of police at age 19 but left his post six years ago, Gale Weathers – an investigative reporter and author from Stab magazine whose true identity remains unknown…and you can’t forget Randy Meeks, Sidney’s faithful childhood friend who became a deputy in the Los Angeles Police Department and now serves as one of Dewey Jr.’s trusted confidants.
Release date of Scream V
January 14th, 2022 marks the release date for the newest horror film in cinema history – Scream V; and it seems appropriate that this will be the final chapter of Sidney’s story as well. The cast includes Sydney’s daughter Jill who just moved back to town after being away for many years, Dewey Riley Jr., Sidney’s onetime boyfriend from high school who became chief of police at age 19 but left his post six years ago, Gale Weathers – an investigative reporter and author from Stab magazine whose true identity remains unknown…and you can’t forget Randy Meeks, Sidney’s faithful childhood friend who became a deputy in the police department.
“The new Scream is a love letter to horror fans.” A quote from the film’s director, Gale Weathers – who also just so happens to be one of our lead characters in this thrilling story.
– One of the most anticipated films for 2022; with an all-star cast and crew including Sidney Prescott–played by Sydney herself!–as well as Dewey Riley Jr., Gale Weathers, Randy Meeks….and you can’t forget their onscreen daughter Jill (Sydney’s real-life daughter).
The newest installment will serve as a satisfying conclusion.
Sidney’s daughter Jill is the killer.
The original Scream will always stand as a classic horror film that changed the landscape of horror films for decades to come, and its sequel will go down in history too–but now it’s finally time for this story to end.
“Scream has been such an iconic franchise,” said Gale Weathers at San Diego Comic-Con when asked about her character’s evolution over the years since she first portrayed Reporter Gale Weathers in 1996 – “and I’m so happy to be able to play myself again.”
The new movie won’t just be filled with thrills but also laughs. “It’ll have all the humor you expect from a Wes Craven movie,” Gale added with pride while filming location in South Africa.
A final chapter of a legendary journey, Scream, will take you on one last terrifying ride and show that horror has no boundaries while exploring the beauty some things have to offer when life ends!
