Abstract (300 words maximum)

The 2022 revival of the massive cult classic phenomenon, Scream, is a masterclass in filmmaking and the art of reviving a franchise. What makes Scream fans so obsessed with the film is its ability to step outside itself and comment on its own genre and being. This meta approach to storytelling is in no way abandoned n the self titled ‘requel’ that is Scream 2022. With extremely intentional death scenes, complex character relationships, and commentary on screenwriting ‘rules’, Scream 2022 successfully merges a reboot and sequel in one. Through analysis of the script, in this presentation I will exemplify why Scream 2022 is an omniscient effort at a perfect slasher script.
