‘Scream’: Ghostface Wields A Flamethrower In 3 New TV Spots [Video]

Ghostface is back for an all new Scream entry this January, and they’re changing things up a little. In three brand new television trailers for the new film Ghostface can be seen brandishing a goddamn flamethrower. So watch out.

Not only is our favorite killer switching up the weaponry, but they are also serving us some fresh looks. For the second time you can spot Ghostface sporting a sleek metal (is that chrome?) mask. Can’t say we hate it.

Check out the new Scream TV spots here:

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). 

When talking with Entertainment Weekly about taking on the Scream mantle, new franchise directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not) seemed to understand the sensitive situation they’re in. 

When asked how they’ve managed the Scream legacy characters, they had this to share:

“It was a wildly anxiety-producing situation,” says Gillet. “They were not disposable roles; they were very, very important and the heartbeat of what was great about the script. We couldn’t imagine the movie without any of them and so not having that perfectly locked-in right off the bat was definitely scary.”

Luckily for us (and them), all three Scream mainstays—Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette—did agree to return for the fifth film. This was mostly due to the quality of the new script, written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.

Scream will be released on January 14, 2022.
