When I first heard that there was going to be a sequel to Scream 5, my first thought was that it wouldn’t be good. As a longtime fan of the Scream franchise, I was excited when they decided to reboot the story with Scream 5 in 2022, keeping the same storyline and characters involved, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I expected to. I figured the same thing would happen with Scream 6, but then I learned that it wasn’t focusing on the characters’ hometown Woodsboro anymore; it would be taking place in New York. I thought this was a great creative decision, but I still had doubt in the back of my mind. I didn’t want one of my favorite horror franchises just to become pure comedy with lazy plots.
With spooky season around the corner comes the opportunity to dress up, watch scary movies, and have a scary good time. In order to get the student body prepared for the season, the ALSC will be showing famous horror movies, painting pumpkins, and of course the annual showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show.
