Scream is the American slasher film that will serve its fifth sequel in 2022. The film is written by Jamer Vanderbilt and Guy Busick and directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.
The Background Of Scream.
The Scream franchise launched its first movie ‘scream’ in 1996. The film begins with a woman who is home alone, and she gets a threatening phone call from an evil man.
She was standing near the patio doors and walking towards the kitchen. From the window, the night could be seen to scare her. When she entered the kitchen, she could see many big knives.
Later, we see a girl named Sydney Prescott(Neve Campbell) whose father left for a weekend. Unfortunately, her mother was murdered a year ago, and her boyfriend was sometimes seen sneaking into her house from the boundary walls.
There was a rumor that a man wearing a Ghostface mask gives people a threatening call, after which the person called would be killed by him. The people killed involved only the teenage groups.
The killer’s name is ‘Father Death’ while the movie proceeds to people getting more phone calls and more murders in the town.
In the end, it was seen that news reporter Gale Weathers and Sidney worked together to kill the ghost face killers. However, Matthew Lillard gave remarks that the killer did not die.
The film came up with different sequels, and in 2011, Scream 4 was launched. The movie was directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015.
David Arquette, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and Roger L. Jackson returned to their respective roles just like the previous sequels. The senior members were welcomed with newcomers Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega, and Jack Quaid.
The film shows how Woodsboro has been living a peaceful life since the absence of the ghost face killer. In the movie, we can see Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), who wrote a book for the people to get over the trauma of those horrific events and brutal killings.
She came back to Woodsboro for her book tour, and she met her old friend Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) and Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette). However, Sidney was not the only one who returned to Woodsboro, but the ghost face killer was also back.
We could see how the return of the ghost face killer puts Sydney’s friends and the others in danger. The movie grossed $95 million with a $40 million budget making it the lowest grossed movie.
However, the fans always loved the sequels and looked forward to hearing Scream 5 release. The scream production kept the fans waiting for a decade until announcing it to be released in 2022.
The Scream production brought back the old cast, especially Sydney (Neve Campbell). It was announced that the filming for Scream five has begun, and the fans won’t have to wait long to relive a better scream experience.
Who Is Neve Campbell?
Neve Campbell was born on 3 October 1973 in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. She is a Canadian actress best known for her work in the drama and horror genres.
She was regarded as the sex symbol of the 1990s, and she was twice featured in a magazine called ‘50 most beautiful people.’ She is the daughter of Marnie(her Dutch mother) and Scottish father, Gerry Campbell.
Her mother is a yoga instructor and a psychologist from Amsterdam. At the same time, her father, who moved from Glasgow, Scotland, to Canada, used to take drama classes in a high school in Mississauga, Ontario.
Her maternal grandparents had a theatre they ran in the Netherlands, while her paternal grandparents were performers in theaters. Campbell had three brothers named Christian Campbell, Alex Campbell, and Damian Campbell.
At two, she and her brothers saw their parents get a divorce. At six, she saw a performance of The Nutcracker. After the performance, she decided to become a ballet dancer.
She went to the Erinvale School of Dance to practice ballet. Later, she moved to a new residence and enrolled herself in the National Ballet School Of Canada. After practicing there, she got the opportunity to work performing in The Nutcracker and sleeping beauty.
After getting different injuries doing ballet, she decided to enter into the field of acting. At 15, she entered into acting by performing in The Phantom of the Opera at the Canon Theatre in Toronto.
While doing theater, she attended John F. Ross Collegiate Vocational Institute in Guelph to learn more about acting and performing theatre. She made her debut by starring in a coca-cola commercial in 1991.
She decided to enter Hollywood, for which she moved to Los Angeles. She auditioned in countless places for someone to represent her. She auditioned for Party of Five, which led her to move to the United States permanently to play the role.
She won the Golden Globe Award for Best Drama in 1996. She frequently signed the contract to play a role in Party of Five six times. But, she refused to sign the seventh contract because she had eyes on entering films.
The show couldn’t continue any longer and had to shut down permanently in 2000, and Neve was living the breakthrough of her career. She was featured in the Scream’s production to star as Sydney Prescott in 1996.
Ever since then, she had been playing the main role, Sydney, in all four parts. From the release of the trailer Scream 5, it was seen that the production was still pursuing Neve to play Sydney.
Although some fans wanted to see another actress play Sydney, many loved Neve to star as they believed Neve was born for Sydney.
It was announced and could also be seen from the trailer that the Scream production would release their fifth sequel on 14 January 2022.
The fans anticipated hearing a better film title for the new part, but they were disappointed to listen to the same title the fifth time. However, the name doesn’t change their curiosity about the movie.
Will Scream 5 Be The End?
Many rumors speculate that the new release will be the last sequel of Scream. However, it wasn’t previously announced that Scream would come up with four parts.
So, we can expect scream production to come up with part six in the future.
