Ghostface slays Manhattan in Scream VI trailer

(Melissa Barrera (“Sam Carpenter”), left, and Jenna Ortega (“Tara Carpenter”) stars in Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group’s “Scream VI.”)

Let’s make one thing clear – Scream VI ain’t your mama’s Scream. Yesterday, Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group released the first full trailer for Scream VI.

The teaser marks the return of Scream 4‘s Kirby, played again by Hayden Panettiere and  Courteney Cox, as an investigative journalist, author and Ghostface fighter, Gale Weathers. Neve Campbell is sitting out this round.

The trailer starts off with a terrified Sam (Melissa Barrera) and Tara Carpenter’s (Jenna Ortega) running into a New York City bodega with a much more gruesome Ghostface hot on their heels. The two plead for help from other shoppers.

We cut to Sam referencing her connection to the Scream franchise — she’s the daughter of the original 1996 movie’s villain Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich). The new Scooby group then discovers that this Ghostface is very meta as he (or she or them) has a hidden shrine.

Ghostface then decides to stalk Gale individually in the new trailer as the killer stalks her, giving way to a nerve-wracking confrontation between Sam, Tara and newcomer Josh Segarra’s character, as well as their friends Chad (Mason Gooding) and Mindy (Jasmin Savoy Brown) on the subway during Halloween, surrounded by people in costumes. Watch below:


The official synopsis says, “Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter. In Scream VI, Melissa Barrera (“Sam Carpenter”), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Mindy Meeks-Martin”), Mason Gooding (“Chad Meeks-Martin”), Jenna Ortega (“Tara Carpenter”), Hayden Panettiere (“Kirby Reed”), and Courtney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) return to their roles in the franchise alongside Jack Champion, Henry Czerny, Liana Liberato, Dermot Mulroney, Devyn Nekoda, Tony Revolori, Josh Segarra and Samara Weaving.
