Scream: Now who's calling?

To say that they return would not be true, because they never left. They were in all 4 movies scream who directed Wes Craven. They are Sydney (Neve Campbell), Galle (Courtney Cox, Monica in friends) and Dewey (David Arquette) -the latter were married in real life- and are in the new scream, but will they continue if there is a next one?

to this new scream they could call her a voice on the phone, And now who calls? or The usual suspects.

First of all, let’s clarify, we are not going to spoil anything. Enough warns the poster that promotes the movie and says that the murderer “is always someone you know.” If that’s not a spoiler… Trust me.

Is scream it is, as it defines itself in the film, a “requel”, neither a prequel nor a sequel. It looks at the navel, revolves around characters, plot and even locations of the scream original, which was 25 years old. Is it necessary to have seen or remember the first? There are winks and references, but everything is discussed so that no new addict to the saga is left out of the conversation.

The plot takes place, of course, in Woodsboro, the fictional town created by Kevin Williamson for the saga. There are new young characters to which the originals are added. And yes, there is someone again disguised as Ghostface, who is calling his victims on the phone. The first is the asthmatic Tara -it is not a minor fact-, to whom she repeats the little game of questions and answers that they did to the character of Drew Barrymore, and if she answers wrong, she murders a friend.

And yes, it turns on stabs, the movie talked about in scream 2, which was based on the “true” events of the first film. And about the clichés of the genre: if you don’t want to die, you don’t have to say “I’ll be back”, you don’t have to have sex, etc., etc.

We already said that we are not going to spoil

The directors – like the murderers in the original – are two, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who together shared The Chronicles of Fear (V/H/S) and they come from directing bloody wedding. And they are true to the saga, the spirit and the atmosphere. What they have done, a decade after scream 4, is to update it or update it with the devices that cell phones have today.

What do they talk to the fans? Yes it’s correct.

And if there are references to many other films (including Psychosis), there are also directors of the genre (Jordan Peel), Netflix, to social networks and more. And if there was already a Loomis – one of the killers – in the scream original, that here a character is called Sam Loomis, like the psychiatrist who treated Michael Myers in Halloween

Suspense, as John Carpenter taught precisely in the first Halloween, is created from the unseen, what is hidden from us or not shown, not with stab wounds to hands, necks or through faces. So what happens outside the visual field, or to the sides or to the back of the alleged victim is what stresses us.

We’ve seen the rest a thousand times.

The first scream it had a meager budget (14 million dollars in 1996), it was shot quickly, but there are things in this one that are surprising. In a scene where they have to run to the hospital, it’s daytime, it gets dark early and dawns even faster. Was it shot in Finland?

Doesn’t anyone work at the hospital at night?

Among the winks there is an early one (“Is Wes still bothering you?”), which will have its explanation later, but you have to pay attention to everything if you want to discover who is under the mask of Ghostface.

And if not, sit there waiting for them to scare you, because that’s also why you pay your ticket to the movies.
