Scream VI forages into fresh territory while honoring the past legacy created by the iconic franchise. This time out we have a female-focused Scream just in time for Women's History Month for those wondering why it was released in March instead of October.
In the past, women have been notoriously objectified and mistreated in the horror movie genre. In some cases, they were regulated to being a damsel in distress or killed off before their character is fully developed.
This Scream tries to rectify some of that mess even though the directors are men. Scream 6 gives off female energy every chance it gets and women are shown as being smart, strong and powerful, not as victims. There's lesbian representation throughout the writing and also in the music thanks to queer singer girl in red.
