Ghostface is back in the upcoming fifth Scream movie, and a new behind the scenes featurette was released online today featuring new footage and comments from the returning legacy cast members and the new residents of Woodsboro.
In the featurette, which you can watch below, Courteney Cox teases, “Ghostface is back and scary as ever.” She later adds, “There are things that happen in this that are kind of shocking. I still can’t believe it.”
In the film, the new character Sam Carpenter, played by Melissa Barrera, is targeted by a Ghostface killer and seeks out Dewey Riley, once again played by David Arquette, for help.
A new poster was also recently unveiled, featuring Ghostface’s favorite target Sidney Prescott reflected on the knife blade.
The official synopsis: Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past
