movie cover

Sidney Prescott, the focus of most of the previous Scream movies, is now the author of a self-help book about how she no longer lives in fear. She returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour where she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey and Gale, now married, as well as her cousin Jill and her Aunt Kate.

Unfortunately, Sidney's arrival seems to bring another back to town. Ghostface has returned, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.

Qvamp says:

While there are no openly gay characters (one gal can be read as being lesbian, but does not come out or exhibit any same-sex desires), this is an interesting film for queer folk. There is a lot of discussion in the film of the horror genre and how modern horror is 'a reversal of the originals.' What this means is, according to one character 'The only way to be assured in surviving a horror movie is to be gay.'

The same character puts this to the test when he claims to be gay to avoid being killed.
