Promised, the Scream trailer doesn’t spoil anything

It would be filled with “false leads” to deceive fans of the saga.

“Good evening Sidney, it’s an honor …” This week, Paramount shared the first trailer for Scream 5, which has since been analyzed by horror movie lovers. From the few images of Ghostface’s return, survivors of the first films (Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette return) and potential new victims (Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Dylan Minnette, etc.), each His theory about the new killer goes.

Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not, V / H / S /) are well aware of the expectation generated by their film, which follows four successful horror films from 1996 to 2011. The first swears to Bloody Disgusting that the trailer does not spoil any of the actual content of the feature film: “For marketing, it was a very difficult trailer to put together, and we’re happy, because anything that you think is a spoiler while watching it won’t be. There are plenty of false leads in our movie, and there’s some in this trailer too. For us, the fun of this project was doing this big ‘whodunnit’ (film that prompts the audience to keep asking ‘who is the killer?’). Spoilers suck, but we know that all the fun for fans of this type of work is to wonder who could be the murderer. So basically, we play with them, with this game of looking for clues to ‘win’ before the final reveal. It is partly for this reason that we love Scream and that we love his fans, who watch these films with a lot of attention. We have fun looking at all the details, finding the slightest clue that could lead us to the identity of the killer. This is also what makes this franchise so unique and special to us. We are big fans of the first four films and when we created the universe of this sequel, we used all the material possible, multiplied the funny winks, the easter eggs, but also the traps and false leads. “

Scream will return to the cinema on January 12. Here’s the trailer in question:
