Elsewhere, the doctor in charge of Sam’s therapy session was murdered. The killer is on the lookout for Sam’s profile and he leaves behind another mask with the DNA of another ghost-faced killer. Knowing this, Sam & Tara’s friends began to speculate that the Stab-inspired killer was playing according to a new scenario.

Scream VI . movie review

Periodic story

For those of you who are fans of the movie Scream, perhaps this movie will be a breath of fresh air because you can’t wait to see the process of killing and being chased by the mysterious ghost face. But for those who just feel ‘entertained’ while watching this movie, then Scream 1 & 2 is enough.

Review scream-6

This happened, making many viewers feel that there was no progress in the movie The Scream. From the story idea, this movie just continues the events in the previous movies. As a result, the film grew so wide, the story idea began to separate from the original, not to mention why the murderous ghost face made me even more dizzy.

Too many characters

Due to the development of the story idea, the addition of new characters had to be made. Instead of making the movie more interesting, this actually confuses ‘new’ audiences with the plot as well as the main characters. Therefore, this movie is not very friendly to watch for those who are new to the ghost face case.

Scream VI movie

Like it or not, they have to see the forerunner movie first. PR one time right? Particularly in Scream VI, a number of new characters appeared and joined the cast of the previous part, even characters from the movie Scream 4 also reappeared. You have to memorize their story first so you know what Scream VI’s story is about.

No more spooky elements

In my personal opinion, the movie Scream didn’t start to be scary or heart-pounding anymore when they removed the main character from this murderous drama, namely Sidney Prescott played by Neve Campbell. Sidney’s character disappeared from the fourth Scream movie. Then the film lost its shine.

Movie Scream VI

You could even say that the most heart-throbbing Scream movie just stuck in Scream 2. The rest, um… But the director and screenwriter are working on continuity with this series still forcing Sidney’s character. must live even though his form is gone for the thrill of that name to persist.

Actually, this movie is enough to close the vicious circle of the ghost-face murder story, but maybe next year, the movie Scream VII will be shown again. If that happens, the big hope is that the producer and director as well as the screenwriter can create a new, more interesting storyline.
