Scream 6 Has Easter Eggs 'Baked Into The Plot' Like A Tasty But Deadly Cake
Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson's “Scream” spawned a full-scale slasher revival and a long-running franchise. The fifth installment, 2022's “Scream,” took the series from commenting on the hack-'em-up rules of first-wave slashers to examining and expanding its own legacy — and “Scream VI,” out on March 10, 2023, will double down on this approach.
Introduced in the trailer by Courteney Cox's Gale Weathers, “Scream VI” features a Ghostface shrine that will have major significance in the film’s plot. Co-director Matt Bettinelli-Olpin said of the shrine, “There was something so great in [‘Scream VI’] about putting the Easter eggs literally on display and baking them into the plot.”
Tyler Gillet, the movie’s other director, stated, “There's this mythologising of what Ghostface is and has been and that exists in this idea of the shrine. For us, certainly as fans of the franchise, it felt like there was a fun opportunity to continue to build the mythology around this character in this movie, so that it's this sort of omnipresent force.”
