2011’s “Scream 4” appeared to point {that a} new core set of characters can be taking on the franchise from the unique surviving trio of Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), and Dewey Riley (David Arquette), however after all, that every one turned out to be a ruse, as all of them had been murdered and two of them turned out to be the Ghostfaces accountable.

That left 2022’s new youthful core characters — Sam Carpenter (Melissa Barrera), Tara Carpenter (Jenna Ortega), Mindy Meeks-Martin (Jasmin Savoy Brown), and Chad Meeks-Martin (Mason Gooding) — to correctly take the torch handed to them by Sidney, Gale and Dewey, legacy sequel-style. “Scream VI” sees the movie and, by extension, the collection persevering with ahead with primarily these “Core 4,” as solely Gale and a not-dead Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere) from “Scream 4” return to the collection.

This passing of the torch to a brand new ensemble has occurred earlier than within the slasher world, nonetheless, particularly in “A Nightmare on Elm Avenue.” Partly 3, “Dream Warriors,” the heroine of the primary “Nightmare,” Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp), returns, shepherding a bunch of troubled Elm Avenue teenagers as they battle Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) of their goals. The survivors of that movie seem partly 4, “The Dream Grasp,” the place they’re shortly killed off, passing the torch (and their dreamland superpowers) onto the brand new Closing Woman, Alice Johnson (Lisa Wilcox).

Within the “Elm Avenue” collection “dream trilogy” of three, 4, and 5 (“The Dream Youngster”), this smooth reset happens in every movie, with a brand new ensemble of heroes (or victims, because the case could also be) that includes alongside at the very least one recurring character. The New York Metropolis setting of “Scream VI,” together with a de-emphasis on the legacy characters (although not the legacy of the collection itself) offers the installment a really “dream trilogy” vibe.
