A year later, Dewey Riley (David) calls Sidney Prescott (Neve): ‘It’s happening. Three attacks so far. Do you have a gun?’ he asks.

‘I’m Sidney Prescott, of course I have a gun,’ she replies.

Sidney later approaches a young woman named Samantha, who appears to be linked to some of the victims.

‘I’ve been through this. A lot,’ she tells Samantha. ‘This is your life now, which means whoever this is is gonna keep coming for you.’

‘There are certain rules to surviving,’ Dewey begins.

‘The attacks were all on people related to the original killers,’ Samantha informs her friends.

‘Whatever his link is to our past, it’s pulled us all back here,’ Sidney says.

‘And I won’t sleep until he’s in the ground,’ she says resolutely.

The all-stars are even seen taking on Ghostface, with the killer going head-to-head with David and attempting to stab him.

The other young men and women are also forced to fight for their lives as well, with several of them seen attempting to evade a bloody knife or pick up a weapon themselves. 

When Sidney finally encounters Ghostface, he creepily greets her: ‘Sidney, it’s an honor.’  

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Tyler Gillett revealed the lengths they took to keep the identity of Ghostface a secret from those working on the film.

Even cast members were unaware of Ghostface’s identity during the early parts of shooting.

‘We were really careful to protect the big reveal of the movie,’ he said.

‘We went as far as to withhold those moments in the script from the actors. We wanted everybody involved, to the degree that we could, to be a part of the whodunit. Obviously, you get to a point in the shoot where you have to let the cat out of the bag, but we went pretty far into prep and into production with a surprising amount of secrecy maintained.’

Scream 5 will also be the first movie in the franchise to not be directed by the Wes Craven, who directed the first four films in the series and passed away in 2015. 

Neve revealed she struggled on whether or not to appear in this film because of the absence of Wes.

‘I genuinely was in two minds,’ she admitted. ‘The idea of making these films without Wes Craven seemed challenging to me. I loved the man very much. But Matt and Tyler wrote me a letter, speaking of their appreciation and great respect for Wes Craven, and speaking of the fact that the very reason that they are directors today was because of these movies and because of Wes, and that meant a great deal to me.’

The fifth installment of the horror series, Scream, will be released in theaters on January 14, 2022.
