Scream 4 (stylized as SCRE4M) is an upcoming slasher film and fourth installment in the Scream series. Several years after the events of Scream 3, Sidney Prescott returns to her home town of Woodsboro on the 15th anniversary of the first Woodsboro Murders for a tour of her new self-help book, where she encounters former allies Sheriff "Dewey" Riley and entertainment journalist Gale Weathers, as well as her younger cousin Jill Roberts, her best friend Kirby Reed, aunt Kate Roberts, and several of Jill's high school friends. However, with her return to Woodsboro also comes the return of past slasher-killer Ghostface, who is starting to stalk and kill Jill's friends and several other people in the Woodsboro area. The killer is now taking reference from horror-movie remakes by basing their murders on those similar to ones committed in the original film, only with more twists on the 21st-century horror movie: in order to survive, Sidney, Dewey, Gale, Jill and her friends must band together and follow the conventions of 21st-century horror movies to determine who the killer is and stop them before the murders spiral out of their control.
