News x MUSE recently talked with one of the stars of the latest SCREAM movie, Jenna Ortega prior to the films release this evening.

In 1996, Scream ushered in a new era of slasher flicks—mixing self-awareness and satire with chills, gore, and plenty of plot twists. Now, 26 years later, one of the most successful horror franchises ever returns for a new generation of fans transporting viewers back to the fictional town of Woodsboro, CA, where a new group of teenagers are targeted by a masked serial killer, known as “Ghostface.” Scream is written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, Zodiac, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts) and Guy Busick (Ready or Not, Castle Rock), directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or Not, Southbound), produced by William Sherak, James Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein, and executive produced by Kevin Williamson, Chad Villella, Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre, Ron Lynch, Cathy Konrad, Marianne Maddalena.  

From Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group, Scream stars Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jamin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar, while Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette will reprise their roles from the first four films.
