The highly anticipated sixth installment in the much beloved slasher film franchise arrives in theaters on Friday (March 10), and plenty of fans and critics have already been catching early previews and screenings ahead of its official theater launch.

Find out what critics are saying about the movie…

The movie currently commands an 75% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with dozens of critic reviews.

The Daily Telegraph gave it 3 out of 5 stars, writing: “A generally-clapped-out franchise is capable of some fairly fun death throes.”

Collider gave it a B+, writing: “Scream VI might be a sequel to a requel, but this franchise still finds new ways to feel original in its approach to this world.”

Bloody Disgusting gave it 5 out of 5 stars, writing: “This slasher sequel lets a ruthless Ghostface loose in the city, slicing up an intense, flawless entry that continues the streak of insightful introspection while escalating the thrills, kills, humor, and heart to a breathless degree.”

NME gave it 4 out of 5 stars, writing: “Masked killer Ghostface makes his next home in New York for this stirring sequel – best when it’s kicking a– and nailing silly lines.”

London Evening Standard gave it 4 out of 5 stars, writing: “Bloody hell. Number 6 in the post-modern horror Scream series is gory… as well as hot-under-the-arms tense and properly funny.”

ScreenCrush gave it a 5 out of 10, writing: “Instead of making fun of the rules of other franchises, it might be time for Scream to start breaking some of its own.”
