Scream 5, also just known as Scream is the fifth installment of the American ‘Scream’ franchise of films. The genre of these films is a subgenre of horror called “meta slasher” films.
Meta slasher films are those films that include fictional stalkers and murderers murdering people or groups of people sometimes, mainly using blades, thus giving it the name ‘slasher’. These films are very disturbing and often times scarier than a basic horror film since these incidents look quite realistic, although they are fictional.
Scream 5 is set twenty-five years after a string of gruesome murders that shook the quiet town of Woodsboro. A fearless serial killer wearing a Ghostface mask is out on the prowl and targeting teenagers who have major secrets that could reveal some things about the town’s past that are better to be kept under wraps which forces Sidney Prescott to return to Woodsboro and uncover the truth.
THE SCREAM FRANCHISE
The first Scream film was released way back in 1996. This was followed by part 2 in 1997 and part 3 in 2000 after which there was a long eleven-year gap. Scream 4 was then released in 2011. Now, another 11 years later, Scream 5 is all set to hit screens and shake you up!

SCREAM 5 TRAILER
A trailer is out already for Scream 5 that is set to release in January 2022. You can check it out here-
The trailer looks very promising and we are sure it will be worth the wait!
There are a lot of questions. Mainly, although the trailer looks amazing, the bar is set pretty high by the previous films. Everybody is wondering whether Scream 5 will be able to live up to the hype!
We also do not know who will be behind the Ghostface mask and what their motive is. In Scream 4, the culprit and motive were both revealed. So the makers of the film will have to come up with something new this time around!
Sidney Prescott will be up against Ghostface this time, making her return to the quaint town of Woodsboro where nothing bad has happened in a long time.
There are lots to look forward to this time!
