My Love of the Scream Series

Tonight I’m going to see a double-bill of Scream (2022) and Scream VI, and I’m very excited to see the next chapter. Scream is one of my favourite horror franchises and I love all of them, although the first one remains the best. I’ve heard almost universal praise for VI and have high hopes for it.

Up until recently I was a little anxious about it. With no Sidney, and a very quick production, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was over ten years of waiting for the fifth one, and then a sixth only a little over a year later. The trailer set those worries at ease and now the reviews are giving me much higher hopes than when they originally announced it.

My mum introduced me to the series, when I was probably a little too young. She told me that the first ten minutes were scary and then it’s a comedy after that. I really enjoyed it and watched the sequels very quickly afterwards. Since then I’ve rewatched it many times and the original Scream has become mine and Tabby’s go-to horror film for Halloween. We’ve watched it every Halloween for the first few years and it’s become our annual tradition. I genuinely feel like the first film just gets better and better with every re-watch.

Ranking these films is very difficult, as they’re all amongst my favourites. That’s what I wanted to do with this post originally, but I couldn’t actually put them in an order. To me they’re all so close together. It would be the first one as the best, and then all the others could be interchanged for the rest of the places. On my most recent rewatch I thought the third one was the best sequel, but that changes every time I watch them.

My review for VI will be up tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that!

Thanks for reading,
