Review: Scream VI bring the scares home

Ghostface is in your house! Don’t worry, there’s no need to run, he’s here to deliver one of the year’s best films to your front room. So, slip on your favourite black cloak, dig out your mask and dive in to all the Scream VI home release has to offer. 

The classic horror franchise is back with its most bloodthirsty entry yet. A must own for Scream fans and horror fans in general, this sixth installment in the two-decade spanning franchise is certainly one of its best, and for my money one of the best 2023 has had to offer. 

Following on from the events of the fifth film, we follow new franchise leads Sam (Melissa Barrera) and Tara (Jenna Ortega) as they find themselves twisted up in a new sick game from a familiar scary face. The twist this time is, we’re in New York, and that means new rules. 

Using its trademark meta storytelling to subvert horror expectations, this latest Scream story also features some riveting (and immensely bloody) set-pieces. All of which are just as effective at home as they were on the big screen. 

In fact, one of the key features on the home release is the breakdown of the film’s mega moments with the films directing duo and its core cast.  ‘Bloodbath at a Bodega’ ‘An Apartment to die for’ and ‘The Night Train to Terror’ allow fans to immerse themselves in a behind the scenes look at how these frightening and sometimes franchise best moments came to pass. 

What’s impressive here is the sheer amount of practicality that goes into building these set-pieces, with the team against the use of green screen.

Fans can also enjoy the film with commentary from the directors, writers, and executive Producers as they dive into the film-making process. 

Those who enjoy Scream’s meta-touch also get the chance to dive inside this sequel to the requel with both new and legacy characters, including a fascinating look back at the franchise over the past 20 years and just what easter-eggs you may have missed in the cinema. 

All of which will deliver fans over an hour of bonus content, as fresh faces and Scream Royalty take you through just how Scream VI ended up being a heap of relentless, exciting bloody fun. 

Scream VI is available to Download & Keep now and on DVD, Blu-ray™ & 4K Ultra HD™ from 10th July.
