First reactions land for Scream 6Paramount

Scream VI slices into cinemas next week, and we've now got the first reactions to the horror sequel.

The new movie sees Scream survivors Sam and Tara Carpenter (Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega) head to New York City, along with Chad and Mindy Meeks-Martin (Mason Gooding and Jasmin Savoy Brown), in an attempt to leave Woodsboro behind.

However, as long-time Scream fans know, it's not that easy to escape Ghostface and they're soon facing another fight for their lives against a new killer.

But does Scream VI live up to last year's requel? A lucky few critics have already seen the new movie and have taken to social media to share their thoughts.

Judging by the first reactions, the movie is a big hit.

Geek Vibes Nation said Scream 6 "is exactly what you want it to be and more", adding "The franchise hasn’t felt this tense or suspenseful since the original."

Other critics agreed, with the New York setting being a particular hit. Collider's Steven Wintraub said, "Moving the story to NYC was a great decision." While Mark Daniell added: "Moving the action to NYC brings added tension to the story." He also noted that "Courteney Cox vs #Ghostface is legendary!"

Scream VI also brings back Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers and Hayden Panettiere as Scream 4 fan favourite Kirby Reed, although the sixth movie will be missing Scream regular Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott.

Ghostface has plenty of new potential victims too as the new movie also stars Jack Champion, Dermot Mulroney, Henry Czerny, Tony Revolori, Josh Segarra and Samara Weaving.

But are any of them actually playing Ghostface? In the UK, fans will get to know early as the movie is coming out on Wednesday (March 8), two days ahead of the US release on March 10.

Ahead of its release, Cox revealed that she "missed" working with Campbell, but added that she's "going to support whatever she feels is right". She also teased a major showdown with Ghostface, so now we're worried.

"I have a really good scene with Ghostface and it was amazing. I've obviously been stabbed many times and all that, but this time, to work with Ghostface and not know who's under the mask, it was really fun," she recalled.

Scream VI is released in UK cinemas on March 8 and in US cinemas on March 10.
