With the release of Scream 6 only a few months away, the movie’s official social media channels have released a new game for fans to enjoy in the meanwhile.
Inaugural Scream A crossword puzzle based on the series has been released on the franchise’s Twitter and Instagram feeds. The account also tagged the New York Times, which is famous for its classic crossword puzzles, to join in on the fun by tagging them in the descriptions of the posts.
Since Scream 6 is set in New York, most of the crossword’s answers are New York-related, or else they’re references to other films in the Scream franchise. Some of the responses, however, do provide some hints about the forthcoming film, including confirmation that a university setting (Blackmore University) will be included and hints about potential stops along the Ghostface killer’s route.
Take a look at (and see if you can answer) the crossword puzzle that the Scream team provided for your entertainment:
After the success of Scream 5, the franchise will welcome back the film’s 2022 directors, Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, to helm Scream 6.
