Fans Take On Scream 5
The reception regarding the latest installment of the franchise has been mainly positive. Apart from the minority purists who struggle to adapt to change, the reviews speak highly of the film’s strengthened approach to induce more horror elements.
The return of the original cast, a more gripping storyline that doesn’t sacrifice by prioritizing public accessibility and improved production, means that Scream 5 has been touted as an all-time great for the film saga. Much of that also concerns the film’s long-standing tritagonist, Dewey Riley, played by David Arquette, who also is the man behind the mask.
With the release of Scream 5 came the end of the long-standing role of David Arquette in the film. Many hard-core enthusiasts of the film were left in dismay at the news. Who else could be worthy of such an iconic role for the installment?
A Return To The Series
David Arquette’s sabbatical from the franchise may be short-lived after all. Exciting times are ahead!
