Typically, the YouTube comments section of a trailer for a female-led franchise is a horror story in itself. Thankfully, the response to the new trailer for Scream VI has been overwhelmingly positive. Many seem very interested in the sequel’s unique urban setting. “Okay I’m super excited!!!” one fan wrote. “I absolutely love the previous parts but in the end we’re going to get something different, not just the crime in someone’s house. Big city, lots of people. It is going to be great! I can’t wait for March! Some other fans feel that the change of scenery is just one of the many aspects of Scream VI that will reinvent the franchise. “There definitely seems to be something different here (maybe it’s just the setting),” wrote another user, “this definitely looks awesome and I’m seriously hyped.”
Another commenter elaborated on this new feel, writing that the trailer “has a darker, more sinister tone” compared to “Scream V.” They added that they “love the vibe of this trailer.” Someone else in the comments praised Kevin Williamson, the father of the entire “Scream” franchise, who has participated in every iteration so far. “Kevin Williamson was right,” they wrote, “this feels like a whole new ‘Scream’ movie. It’s true that Ghostface looks more menacing than ever in this exciting trailer. With one of the world’s greatest cities at his mercy, Scream VI is bound to be the bloodiest film of the series.
