Not directed by Wes Craven (cuz he's dead)

Starring Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, David Arquette, and a bunch of boring young people.

Cellphones have ruined horror in a lot of ways, but you canít mind them as much in Scream since theyíve always been integral to the story.

It looks kind of joyless.

Totally. No sense of humor or interesting hook worthy of bringing back the original cast. The directing duo's IMDBs do not inspire confidence either.

Scream 4 had lots of joy. The best of the sequels, far and away.

Scream without... humor... satire.. Wes... or Kevin... why?

4 already did the nostalgia trip and had the reboot/sequel angle... I don't see what's fresh here. What's the selling point?

The selling point is clearly the original cast returning once more, because if anything else the recent tv-series thing proved that not too many care to watch Scream without them. The Halloween (2018) did the same with Lee Curtis.

I'm not interested in this and I agree the fourth movie is the best of the sequels.

At least 18 sold itself as ignoring the sequels and being a "real Halloween sequel".. which of course isn't true at all. They removed the Michael/Laurie sisters storyline

As someone who is biased toward horror movies taking themselves seriously, and who also thinks Scream 4 was hot wet garbage, the trailer actually has me a little hyped for this one. Even if it does feel like itís copy/pasting the David Gordon Green Halloween template onto the Scream franchise.

If nothing else, I vastly prefer this batch of young actors over the ones that were in 4.

I hope you're right, but the January release date doesn't inspire confidence.
