Yes, we do like scary movies.

It’s almost time for Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s Scream to hit theaters. Paramount Pictures has released new teaser content to hold us over, at least until the release.

“Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past,” reads the official movie description.

The Scream movies were originally written by out writer Kevin Williamson who joins the new installment of the franchise as an executive producer.

In an interview with Logo, Savoy-Brown said the writers of the film did a great job avoiding tropes and creating authentic characters. She said, “I felt I could just fully exist just as myself which is a person who happens to be queer, and the writing reflects that.”

You can see posters for 11 other newcomers including Melissa Barrera as Sam Carpenter, Mason Gooding as Chad Meeks-Martin, and Dylan Minnette as Wes Hicks.

Plus, to ensure fans know that Ghostface is back and as scary as ever, Paramount Pictures released a new featurette where the cast discusses what makes this villain a horror icon.
