The first comments of the American press on Scream 6 are full of enthusiasm, and arouse the curiosity about this new chapter of the saga, the first set in New York City. To pass the time, here’s a new spot and a motion poster, where the Ghostface mask is made up of a dense weave of knives.


The New York setting promises to change some dynamics of the saga, starting with the fact that the killer will be even more ruthless than usual: he won’t have problems, for example, killing his victims in the subway crowd or the customers of a convenience store . We can imagine that the pursuits will also change, since there is no usual town with houses surrounded by gardens. For the uninitiated, Sam Carpenter ( Melissa Barrera ), Tara Carpenter ( Jenna Ortega ) and the other survivors of the previous massacre have moved to the Big Apple to study.

However, another novelty is represented by the ruined mask , which seems to have a metafictional meaning. The release of Scream 6 is also expected in 3D: it will arrive in Italy on March 9 , distributed by Eagle Pictures .

You can watch the commercial and the motion poster below.

Scream in the cinema and on TV

The saga has so far five cinematic chapters released in theaters: the first four were directed by Wes Craven , while the screenplays are almost all by Kevin Williamson (the creator of Dawson’s Creek ), apart from the third film, written by Ehren Kruger . The fifth chapter was instead directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett , who then returned for the sixth.

The franchise transitioned to the small screen in 2015, in an MTV series that ran for two seasons. A third season – actually unrelated to the previous two – aired in 2019 on VH1.
