With Halloween out of the way, Ghostface is really starting to ramp up the promotional tour. Today, Paramount dropped a brand new poster for the forthcoming fifth Scream entry, which hits cinemas this January.

The newly dropped poster for the upcoming film puts a familiar face back in peril: Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott. This item follows a number of other poster drops, a trailer, and an exclusive first look of the main cast. Seems like Scream is fast approaching.

The cutting new one-sheet flashes Sidney’s reflection in Ghostface’s steely blade, while reminding us: It’s always someone you know. A scary truth, to be sure.

Even though the new movie will just be simply titled Scream, don’t expect a full-on reboot. Scream features an exciting cast of faces new and familiar, not unlike the casting setup of the criminally underrated Scream 4. New cast members include rising stars Jack Quaid (TV’s The Boys), Dylan Minette (TV’s 13 Reasons Why), and Jenna Ortega (Netflix’s upcoming Wednesday series). Legacy ensemble Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette have also signed on.

The film follows a young woman returning to her hometown, which is plagued by a series of brutal murders. Oh yeah, and the slayings are all linked to a mysterious figure known only as Ghostface.

Director credits have been assigned to Radio Silence duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillet (Ready or Not). Original screenwriter Kevin Williamson has also returned to the role of executive producer.
