Ghostface to Give It Another Stab as Scream 5 is in the Works

As someone who grew up in the 90s, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that my favorite horror movie franchise is Scream. I’ve watched those movies so many times that I’ve officially lost count how many times I’ve seen them, and I recite most of the lines word for word while watching them. Like most things we miss and love about the 90s, the Scream movies remind me of a simpler time. They also remind me how scary it was living without caller ID.

So, you can imagine my surprise and excitement when I heard the news that Scream 5 is officially in the works at Spyglass Media Group. Whether this new addition will be a sequel, reboot, or remake remains to be confirmed, but if the people involved are smart enough, they’ll avoid falling into the reboot/remake trap and just add another sequel to the beloved franchise. Personally, I don’t think Scream is a movie that needs to be remade or rebooted; it’s perfectly fine as it is. Sure, it may appear outdated to today’s youth, but I think it’s still relatable. And even with the change in technology, it still holds up today because the idea of someone stalking and murdering teens in suburban America is just as terrifying today as it was in the 90s. Whether that creepy phone call comes through on a landline or a smartphone is just semantics.

As to whether any of the original cast will return for Scream 5, that also remains unconfirmed as of now. However, after Scream 4 in 2011, Neve Campbell and David Arquette both stated that they wouldn’t be opposed to coming back for another movie. Of course, that kind of commitment usually depends on the script and director chosen. Although I don’t see anyone writing as brilliant a script as Kevin Williamson, for now we can only cross our fingers and hope for the best until more details are released.

"MADD" Manda Walsh
Chicago native and Saint Xavier University alum (class of 2007), Amanda Walsh is an aspiring journalist with a strong passion for music and longtime love of writing. While in college, she spent her time volunteering as a radio DJ, working as the station’s Music Director, and serving as a regular contributing writer for the campus newspaper where she combined her love for music and writing. Between attending multiple concerts a month all over the city, interviewing various bands both in and out of the studio, and introducing her friends and show listeners to new artists (both local and national acts), it was during this time that Amanda really discovered her niche. Whether listening alone with her headphones or experiencing it live in person, music has always been Amanda’s safe haven and more like a religion, with concerts feeling more like going to church. Today the number of artist interviews under her belt continues to grow, as she strives to break new and up and coming artists before other outlets. She also continues to attend as many concerts as her bank account will allow. Her musical tastes range from “OMG you have to hear this” to “please don’t judge me,” and she is the person you want on your team in music trivia. She is also an avid enthusiast of the paranormal and anything in the realm of horror or the creepy and unnerving. With that said, she loves Halloween more than a normal person probably should and has a fascination with cemeteries. Aside from music and concerts, Amanda also enjoys reading, shopping and epic adventures. She's a sucker for a good mystery and anything acoustic. When she was a kid she wanted to be Nancy Drew when she grew up. At the end of the day, if she had to describe herself with a song lyric it would be this – “I’m somewhere in between what is real and just a dream.”
