Meet a Ghostface like no other as the slasher takes Manhattan in full trailer for 'Scream VI'

Ghostface is back, and this time, he's changing the game forever.

Ghostface in Scream VI (2023)

Every Ghostface through five Scream films and one TV series has done things a little differently. Different motives, different approaches to each victim, different rules for the ways in which he or she toys with the people swept up in the carnage. Figuring out who Ghostface is and what they want is one of the most fun parts of each film, and Scream VI will be no different in that regard. What will be different? From the looks of things, just about everything else.

Paramount Pictures has dropped the full trailer for the sixth installment in the beloved slasher franchise, giving fans everywhere a closer look at what filmmakers Radio Silence have planned for what might be the biggest Scream yet. The film follows Woodsboro survivors Sam (Melissa Barrera), Tara (Jenna Ortega), Mindy (Jasmin Savoy Brown), and Chad (Mason Gooding) as they head across the country for a New York City college experience far away from Woodsboro.

It seems like a good way to escape the trauma of what happened last year, but in Scream films, trauma just follows you, and while Sam is busy trying to contend with her own dark past and Tara is busy trying to forget it, Ghostface finds them once again, and as he assures Gale (Courteney Cox), he's something different this time.

Check out the trailer below:

The idea of a shrine to Ghostface's past tucked away somewhere in New York is fascinating, particularly given what we know about the previous Ghostface killers. They began their rampage as fans of the Stab movie franchise hoping to jumpstart things by providing some new source material. Now, it seems a new Ghostface has emerged as a fan not just of Stab, but of Ghostface as a concept used through the years for revenge and a certain kind of brutality. That adds a layer of power to the story, not just in things like what appears to be a distressed vintage Ghostface mask, but in the return of Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere), a Scream 4 survivor who's had more than a decade to reckon with her own history with Ghostface.

Of course, there are still plenty of questions looming in this film, including who Ghostface is and how many people he'll leave alive, but we'll find out the answers soon enough. Scream VI is in theaters March 10.
