Watch Scream 6: preview

The original Scream turned the slasher genre on its head. The movie had meta written all over it, with knowing protagonists ribbing each other for walking straight into the genre's hackneyed tropes like saying 'I'll be right back' shortly before disappearing for good. And it was huge, spawning a series of sequels – and a million Halloween costumes – as well as inspiring countless imitators within their own respective genres.

Now it's back with a sixth instalment. The story? The four college-age survivors from last year's instalment (simply called Scream) are trying to move on with their lives in New York City when a new Ghostface Killer strikes in the very same city. What are the chances, eh? The film is notable for the return of franchise favourites Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere) and Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox).

Want to stream Scream? Of course you do. Here's how to watch Scream 6 online from anywhere in the world.
