Scream VI is a horrifying violent slasher movie from Hollywood. This is the latest 2023 film from the popular and successful franchise Scream. And it has too much gore and violence.

However, for horror cinema fans – it is an enjoyable movie. But, what is a slasher movie? Well, the slasher movie is a genre of horror films that usually have a masked killer(s) hunting and slaying a group of people while using the preferred weapons like knives and/or any other sharp objects to slash and hurt the targeted people.

The introduction

Sxream VI is the sixth and the latest offering from the Scream movies/series franchise of horror pictures that has a dedicated fan base. It all started more than two-and-half decades ago when the first Scream film was released in 1996. Since then, the Scream movies and series have gone from strength to strength.

The basic theme of this horror film

Please note that we are not going to share the storyline of this horror flick. However, we can tell you the basic theme of this film.

Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter in New York City. But can they escape the Ghostface?

The first bonus information about this horror film

First is that it is the first ‘Scream’ film without Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott) and David Arquette (Dewey Riley). Also, it is the first film in the franchise to get a 3D release and the third film in the franchise to take place outside of Woodsboro, after Scream 2 (1997) and Scream 3 (2000). This picture became the third film in the franchise to surpass USD($) 100 million domestically at the US Box Office in April 2023, after its release.

The second bonus information about this horror film

The actress Courteney Cox has now played the role of Gale Weathers in all six movies of this franchise, released between 1996 to 2023 – in four different decades. It is a unique record for any actress. Courteney Cox was the first actor to sign up to return as Gale Weathers in this film. As of this film, Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers) is the only actor to appear in every film, while Roger Jackson has provided voice work for every film.

However, it is worth noting that only actress Milla Jovovich appeared in the six Resident Evil (2002 to 2016) movies before its recent reboot.

The conclusion

Now, this 2023 film has successfully recreated a worthy sequel of a slasher/horror movie. And we (me and my team) think this movie has given a fresh lease of life to its franchise.

No doubt, this film is loved by its dedicated fanbase, who like the blood and gore of slasher movies. We have seen some of the horror/slasher movie audiences screaming while watching this film. But, it is not for weak-hearted people like us. However, we liked the mystery surrounding the masked murderer. All in all, we can say it is a thrilling violent slasher movie made for its loyal fanbase.
