A new image from Scream (2022) shows Ghostface after a recent kill. The iconic masked murderer first graced silver screens in the original Scream movie from 1996 written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven, which follows Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), a teenager who becomes the target of the mysterious killer in a Halloween costume in the fictional town of Woodsboro. That film ended up being a seminal one in the slasher genre, leading to three sequels all helmed by the horror maven.
The upcoming relaunch of the franchise, also titled Scream, will be the first installment not directed by Craven, who passed away in 2015, with Ready or Not‘s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett now taking over. However, an array of original stars will return, including Prescott as Sidney, Courteney Cox as the former reporter Gale Weathers, David Arquette as the town’s former sheriff Dewey Riley, and Roger L. Jackson as the voice of Ghostface. Franchise newcomers include Melissa Barrera (In the Heights), Dylan Minnette (13 Reasons Why), and Jack Quaid (The Boys).
Now, a new image from the forthcoming Scream movie shows another look at the return of the masked murderer, Ghostface. Dressed in their trademark black cloak and white mask, they wield a bloodied knife, indicating they are fresh off of a kill. The photo comes courtesy of Bloody Disgusting. See the new image below:
This is just the latest in a long line of looks at Ghostface in the new Scream movie released so far. The franchise relaunch has been billing itself as the return to Woodsboro, where a new killer has donned the iconic mask and begun targeting a group of teenagers with ties to the town’s bloody past. With the synopsis and trailers outright admitting there is a new man or woman behind the mask, fans have been fervently speculating as to who it might be. One popular theory suggest the franchise’s own heroine, Sidney, is the new Ghostface killer.
Another prevalent theory suggests the killer might be the secret child of Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy). No matter who the they are, they likely have close ties to their victims and the people of Woodsboro, which would be in line with the franchise’s established “It’s always someone you know” trope referenced on a recent retro Scream poster. The wait for audiences to find out who the new Ghostface killer is almost over, as Scream releases in theaters later this month.
