Watch the trailer below:
The fifth Scream film marks the return of Friends star Courteney Cox and David Arquette from the original film, released 25 years ago in 1996.
It follows the story of a young woman who returns to her old hometown, only to encounter horrific murder cases connected to a familiar masked killer.
The trailer begins with a young girl named Terra texting her friend who she believes is pranking calling her. When Terra finally answers the house phone, she hears a spooky male voice on the other end of the line.
“Would you like to play Terra?” he says.
In the next scene, Dewey Riley (played by David Arquette) calls Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) about the horrific crime. Sidney returns home to warn a group of teens that the mysterious killer will keep coming for them.
Sidney calls on Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) to help her in her latest attempt to stop the killer known as Ghostface.
But in an unsettling twist, the group soon discover that Ghostface is targeting them because he is linked to their past.
The original four movies, featuring the iconic Ghostface killer villain, were all directed by the late Wes Craven, but after his death in 2015, it was in doubt the series would continue without him.
The sequel was directed by Kevin Williamson, and will officially see the franchise go back to its roots, with the new movie to simply be entitled Scream.
"Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans," he wrote when filming wrapped last year. "I'm excited for you to return to Woodsboro and get really scared again."
Scream will haunt cinemas from 14th January 2022.
