The first reactions to Scream VI have surfaced, with many claiming it’s the goriest entry yet.

Scream VI is having its press junket this weekend, and the lucky journalists who participated (including our own JimmyO) saw the film last night. Immediately after the screening, they were allowed to share their thoughts on social media, with a full review embargo set to break later this week. Our man Jimmy said the following:

“#Scream6 is a delight! The cast all shine, old and new, and the kills are pretty damn brutal. It’s one the finest sequels in the series with unexpected (and fun) twists throughout! I sure like this scary movie!”

Other reactions were similarly positive, with many praising the amped-up gore and the new urban New York City setting. Of course, one must remember that junket screenings are always pretty positive, and it’s customary that if someone is doing interviews for the movie and they happened to hate it, they wouldn’t share their reaction. That said, usually you can read between the lines, with the classic reaction for a movie you didn’t love being “it was fun.” The reactions (so far) seem legit – so check them out below!

Not bad, right? Scream VI opens Friday March 10th! The film is directed by Tyler Gillett, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, and stars Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy-Brown, Jenna Ortega, Dermot Mulroney, Hayden Panettiere, Courteney Cox, Samara Weaving and more! Are you excited for the next film? Let us know in the comments!
