Kevflix And Chill’s review published on Letterboxd:
My daughter, Paisley, has been dying to see this since it came out, but for some reason it’s just taken us a long time to get to the theater for this one. Had a really good time with her and my oldest son. Feels like they cranked up the violence a bit, which is always a plus for me when it comes to slashers. Several moments had Paisley wincing and squirming in her seat. It’s a one of the more predictable entries in terms of determining who the killer/s are. Still a really good time. As we’re leaving the theater, Paisley says, “So, if one of the rules is that they’ll subvert expectations….that really just means that there’s no rules.” And she’s absolutely right.
The new setting is very a welcome change. I wasn’t much a fan of Melissa Barrera’s Sam, in Scream (5), but I thought it worked much better in this. She and Jenna Ortega’s Tara were an excellent tandem here. And though the film worked just fine without the presence of Sydney Prescott, BUT I think one aspect of her being gone that no one is talking about is the very important fact that Scream VI is the only Scream film that is not one degree of Kevin Bacon.

Degrees of Kevin Bacon: 2
1. Essentially everyone and Neve Campbell in Some Other Scream Film
2. Neve Campbell and Kevin Bacon in Wild Things
