Trailer For Friday The 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan Scream 6

Posted January 19, 2023 by with 1 comment

Other than copying what another slasher movie did nearly 35 years ago, the good news for the hacks behind the new Scream (a mostly great horror franchise that, for all practical purposes, ended after Scream 4 when Wes Craven died) is that it can’t be any worse than the un-scary and pointless Scream 5 from last year. Of course, what these people fail to realize is that, like with Jason Takes Manhattan, there’s nothing scary about a serial killer in New York City. If they really wanted to make a terrifying horror movie, all they’d have to do is film any of the real-life insanity taking place on the streets of NYC 24 hours a day. Instead, with the exception of Courtney Cox’s Gale Weathers, we’re stuck again with a random cast of C-list stars (I’m sorry, I couldn’t tell you any of the names of the returning actors, let alone their character names). Also, in case you needed any more proof that Scream is dead and gone, Ghostface killing people in public in a crowded liquor store tells you that the writers have no idea what the series is all about, let alone how to actually make a scary movie:

I see they brought back the Kirby character from Scream 4, a lazy attempt to appease superfans, because we’re apparently not only supposed to care about her, we’re also supposed to forget that she was killed off in that sequel? And spare me the conspiracy theories that we never “officially” saw her die, because we all saw her stabbed to death. And if she were still alive, why wasn’t she mentioned at the end of 4, or at any point in 5? She wasn’t important enough then, but she’s important now? Poor Courtney Cox should’ve seen the red flag when Neve Campbell bailed on this mess.
