Ghostface slices through the big apple
I was fortunate to attend an advanced screening of the latest Scream film, Scream 6. It helps when you have a cousin who works in the film industry (haha). We had seen the previous movie in the franchise together upon release and naturally when tickets for the next entry were available, I asked her if I should buy us a pair. However, I was delighted to discover that she was working on securing seats for us at an advanced screening. A short while later, the seats were ours and we headed to Times Square on Friday, March 3rd! Needless to say, we had a blast! Not only was it awesome seeing a film a week in advance but, like the other films of this consistent franchise, Scream 6 was a ton of fun! There was no shortage of blood or gore, but overall a strong movie that delivered on scares that keep you on the edge of your seat and even a few chuckles. I also thought the New York City setting was a nice touch that added a neat aesthetic to the film. The cast performed well in this movie, particularly the four main characters, denoting themselves as the "core four." Jenna Ortega was likely the standout of the group. Gale also contributed to the flow of the narrative in this outing, which was nice because her character was essentially a glorified cameo in the previous film. As shameful as it is that Sidney Prescott could not appear in "Scream 6", the movie does fine without her and to be quite honest, her character would have felt shoehorned in. And last but not least, the addition of Scream 4's Kirby was nice fan service that did not feel forced. Finally, keep a lookout for that opening scene! Goes in a wildly different direction than you'd expect, unlike other Scream films. If I had to find a gripe with the film, I would say the last 20 minutes slow down a bit and I do feel that that some characters were invincible with plot armor. Apart from those small nitpicks, a really enjoyable Scream movie. Solid 8/10 movie.
