A stunning new poster for the upcoming horror sequel Scream (AKA Scream 5) is wonderfully reminiscent of the legendary horror movie promos of the old days and expertly gives Ghostface a serious 70s / 80s vibe. While Scream The franchise didn’t start until 1996, an important element of the franchise has always been the trust and references to horror films from the 1980s, with the new retro poster paying homage to the classic tropes that have always littered the films themselves.
Revealed by the official Scream Twitter account, and designed by poster designer Creepy Duck Design, the poster continues another trope, that of the mystery of the Ghostface killer, with the headline “There’s always someone you know.” Swinging his trusty blade and wearing his fearsome mask, Ghostface gradually melts into drops of blood … which can’t be good news for our characters.

The directors are amazing, they absolutely do it … it’s a new franchise … it’s hip. Its scary. It’s just a new craze. It’s not a reboot, not a remake, just a brand new start. I think it’s going to be awesome. ”
Director Tyler Gillet has repeated many of these feelings and teases a lot more for them Scream Franchise beyond this upcoming fifth installment. “This new line-up of characters is so wonderful. The legacy cast, they are so wonderful, ”said the filmmaker. “I think what we discovered and what?
