The Scream Franchise

Wednesday, March 8th at 12:01am PT / 3:01am ET


9 hours to go for me... just finished pouring through 1-5 & could not be more antsy/nervous/stoked. I am struggling to accomplish any work today.
I don't get to see it until tomorrow afternoon and I am sweating bullets trying to avoid spoilers on social media.

Not to bring the thread down but my thoughts are with Hayden having to do press with what happened to her brother. That girl can't catch a break. I hope this film is a big hit for her.
I'm hoping and thinking it might be a healthy distraction through grief - especially as it's essentially her reintroduction to one of her talents and the associated press that comes with it. If anything, I imagine it's a confirmation that she's in a good place and able to cope and flourish again.
Miss ViewerAnon ranks the films as:

Scream 2
Scream VI
Scream 2022
Scream 3
Scream 4

Not counting VI obviously that’s my exact ranking so I trust their taste and that bodes well for this being a new classic.

This is also my exact ranking, so this is VERY exciting to see!
I watched the first two recently in preparation and I would put 2 ahead of 1. Sorry to Tatum or whatever.

My ranking goes 2 > 1 > 5 > 4 > 3.

Sometimes 3 can rank higher than 4 but I’m a firm believer that 2 is not only the best horror sequel of all time, but one of the best sequels period.

My hope/expectation is that VI will land higher than 5. I want it to be to Scream ‘22 what Scream 2 was to the original. Anything less and I’ll be disappointed.
