2022 has been quite the year for fans of the beloved Scream franchise. It hosted the first theatrical release in the series since the fourth installment back in 2011. It also allowed us to revisit our favorite fabled town of Woodsboro. Meeting wonderful new characters like Mindy, Chad, and the Carpenter sisters – while catching up with the horror genre’s most esteemed trinity: Gale, Dewey, and Sidney.
Scream 2022 was not only a love letter to the late Master of Horror, Wes Craven, and the genre he’s left such a legendary mark on – but of the stand-out slasher series that changed the foundation of horror in the mid-to-late nineties.

The outpour of love and support from fans was a clear indicator that the Scream franchise was in great hands with the Radio Silence team, and the clamor for a follow-up to the film had fans teeming with eager anticipation.
Thankfully, the studio announced a sequel, and the sixth installment is currently under production.

The opening to the first Scream is home to one of the most memorable kills in film history and arguably the best opening sequence in a horror film period.
Keeping in the theme of follow-ups and celebration, I figured what better way to celebrate the buzz of a new Scream sequel and the franchise’s legacy, along with commemorating one of its creators, than by ranking the best and most memorable kills in the series.
Before we get there, let’s have a stab at some Honorable Mentions.
15 – Tyson Fox, Scream 3 (2000)
At the tail end of our list of honorable mentions is one of the more comedic-yet-brutal lead-ups to a kill in the third Scream. Tyson’s quips with the Ghostface killer chasing him through this never-ending mansion is one…
