A little over a year after the previous installment was released, “Scream VI” has arrived in theaters and continues to prove that “Scream” is one of the most consistent horror franchises.

It’s rare that the sixth film in a series, especially within the horror genre, is any good, but “Scream VI” benefits from a change in location — from the fictional Woodsboro, Calif., to New York City — and a focus on developing the new set survivors introduced in last year’s “Scream.”
