Iain Sharp’s review published on Letterboxd:
How is the sixth entry into a franchise this fucking good?? I don't know, but it is. Yes this is 5 stars, just like all the others in the franchise. I love them all, and this is no different. My friends and I were cheering and screaming and gasping and laughing and all equally stressed!
I'm still riding the high that I had leaving the cinema. The opening sequence is brutal, and so well done. The fact we get a huge amount of Scream 2 references instead of the usual focus on the original is refreshing, but also this film manages to feel original and bringing something new to the table. Legacy characters, new characters, and further development on our core four. Also it's set in bloody New York City! The convenience store scene alone... ooft. Be prepared for an amp up in gore. Regarding the story though - I'm sticking silent because it's just out. Just know I really loved this and you're damn right I cannot wait for what they do in Scream 7!
