As the Scream reboot trailer shows, the killer in the Ghostface mask is back again, and it’s once again a mystery who he or she is. Ghostface is targeting a group of teens connected to all the original film’s deaths and is set to uncover some more deadly secrets about the town. Pulled back into the action, as they always are, are Sidney, Dewey, and Gale as they try once again the solve the mystery of the killer. Just how this film will stand out from Scream 4, which was released in 2011 and already took a meta-meta slant to the franchise in deconstructing its own history, isn’t too clear, but it does look like it could be pretty scary.

Joining the original cast members are Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar. The film is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who most recently directed the enjoyable Ready or Not.

Scream will release January 14, 2022.
