If already writing a single story can be difficult, certainly having to continue it (after having put a first point) with a sequel brings not a few difficulties, even more so if we are talking about the fifth sequel of this saga, an important term on which the film itself plays.
And it is precisely on this play that Scream VI decides to center its plot, never taking itself too seriously as is the style that this saga has adopted since the first chapter, and overcoming quite well all the possible problems that a sequel brings with it: repetitiveness of the plot, clichés, and seen-and-reviewed dynamics that inevitably lead the viewer to wonder if there was really a need to get to a sixth film. Yet Scream VI finds pleasant gimmicks (no spoilers) to engage the most avid viewer and in its own way thank him for following the entire series. Attention to detail is the key to this film.
The Radio Silence collective, with the duo of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett directing, veterans of the huge success of the previous chapter, decide to shift the action from sunny Texas to a dark and rainy New York City that is very reminiscent of the Joker’s Gotham City.
In fact, sisters Sam and Tara Carpenter (Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega), along with twins Chad and Mindy Meeks, after yet another narrow escape, leave Woodsboro to start a new life in New York and leave their past behind.
However, even in the big city they will find themselves dealing with a new Ghostface, more gory, more effective, more difficult to understand.The time for telephone riddles is over and the situations of constant terror make even hardened fans forget to miss Sidney Prescott, played by Neve CampbellThe quintessential ‘Final Girl’ of the 1990s.
