It’s time to scream as Ghostface is returning to the big screen with New York on his mind. But this time, it’s a “different” Ghostface who is out on a knife-wielding killing spree. Paramount Pictures dropped the Scream 6 trailer on 19 January 2023, and it promises some intense jump-scare horror.

The Scream 6 trailer and release date
The nearly 2:30 minutes long trailer shows the Ghostface killer terrorising New York City bodegas and subway as his previous victims and survivors join forces against him.
When he says, “let’s play a game,” you know you are up for some mind-boggling chases and hunts as the Ghostface is in no mood to end it with fair play. The trailer also takes the chase scenes through high-tech “shrines,” NYC skyscrapers, and old apartment buildings.
A crescendo of sorts is achieved when the group of survivors encounter a number of Ghostfaces inside a packed subway train.
Who will survive this time and what happens to the killer all remain a mystery till the horror film rolls out in theatres on 10 March 2023.
