With the new Scream movie added to the franchise, the slasher genre has been renewed. Not just that Scream 5 has got the movie fans talking about the franchise again. The movie has proved that the franchise is the most creative of the horror slasher genre. It surpassed all expectations of the fans, Many fans compared Wes Craven’s Scream to the original. The success of the 2022 movie has led to the announcement of the sixth movie of the franchise. And here are a few things fans want to see in the upcoming movie.
Bring Back Stu Macher’s Legacy
Scream 2022 focused on the story of the Woodsboro murders and it reminded the fans that it was a doing of Billy Loomis and Stu Macher. But the franchise seems to have forgotten the contribution of Stu in the new movie. The movie at some parts made seem that will do justice to Stu but that did not happen. Scream 3 had planned to bring back Stu but that did not happen. The fans expect that the upcoming movie would bring back Stu Macher’s legacy.
A Twist on The Ghostface Reveal
The plot of a masked killer causing mayhem has been done so many times. But the Scream franchise has managed to bear force on the mystery of who is behind the mask. Sometimes, due to the pressure of giving the masked killer a face, the movies have introduced double killers. This allows a couple of lunatics to share the carnage. But now the Scream fans have become accustomed to the ways of the franchise and expect this movie to do something new.
Move Away from Legacy Characters
Scream 5 has done an effective job in itself in moving away from the legacy characters. The movie has introduced new faces to the franchise and brought in legacy characters quite later and only in a supporting role. They played the role of passing down the torch to the new generation. The Scream 2022 has also ended on the note that Sidney and Gale are now moving on from the Woodsboro tragedies. With four new characters still alive at the end of the film, it would be better if the franchise moved with them only.
Jennifer Jolie to get Her Big Close-Up
In the Scream franchise, the third entry is considered the weakest. The reason is its exchange of violence with humor. Switching genres doesn’t always work, especially with the Scream fans. But one of the highlights of the film was Jennifer Jolie. The performance really stood out in the film, and her death was a tragic loss. Though she might be dead, the fans would love to see her, if the franchise could cleverly bring her back using her ‘Stab 2’ footage.
Proper Tribute to Dewy Riley
The Scream franchise, with every entry, has introduced new characters, but the lead trio that took down the Ghostface in every film before the 2022 entry, was Sidney Prescott, Gale Weathers, and Dewey Riley. Scream 2022 has knowingly changed this and removed one of the characters, showing that it has stakes. The end of the character was bittersweet, but Gale does say that she wants to share his story properly. Giving a proper closure to the character through Gale is something the fans would love to see.
