The franchise credited for revitalizing the horror genre and injecting the gory medium with dark comedy has a new chilling and chuckle-inducing chapter on the way, and you won’t want to miss it.

Scream 5, officially titled Scream -- not to be confused with the original 1996 film that started it all -- is set to be released on Friday, Jan. 14. The newest chapter takes place 25 years after the first massacre in Woodsboro, California. This time around, a new killer has slipped on a Ghostface mask to target a group of teenagers with mysterious motivations behind the murderous rampage. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette return to reprise their roles from the first four Scream films. 

For now, you can only catch the fifth Scream film in theaters, so be sure to grab tickets ahead of time and get ready for some shriek-worthy terror.
