SCREAM Spoilers: Who Is Beneath Ghostface's Mask And Which Victims Do They Claim?

Scream is now playing in theaters, and whether you've been to see the horror "requel" or simply want to know what happens, we have you covered with all the juicy, bloody details. Spoilers, obviously.

The fifth installment in the Scream franchise opened on Friday (you can check out our review here), and whether you've already been to see the movie and fancy a recap, or simply want to know what happens, we have you covered with some major spoilers.

Scream begins with a franchise staple, as lone teenager Tara (Jenna Ortega) is menaced by a new incarnation of Ghostface. This time, however, the victim survives (being stabbed repeatedly is really only a minor inconvenience in these movies), setting up the arrival of her estranged sister Sam (Melissa Barrera).

It just so happens that Sam is the daughter of original Ghostface Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich), who appears via some slightly dodgy de-aging CGI in an attempt to amplify his little girl's propensity for violence. This marks Sam as one of the potential killers, but the real culprits turn out to be her seemingly supportive boyfriend Richie (Jack Quaid) and Tara's bestie Amber (Mikey Madison), who met in a Stab (the fictional movie series based on the Woodsboro murders) chatroom and decided to play copycat.

Paramount Pictures has (understandably) gone to great lengths to preserve spoilers, but the movie actually gives the game away about 20 minutes in when Richie and Amber share a very telling look after being introduced by Sam in the hospital. We are thrown off the scent with a few red herrings as the film progresses, but this seemed like an odd thing to signpost so early on.

Our deranged new Ghostfaces notch up quite a kill-count, including Scream 4 returnee Sherriff Judy (Marley Shelton), and, in the movie's most shocking moment, Dewey Riley (David Arquette). The franchise OG makes the mistake of going back to "put one in the head" after taking down Ghostface (we later learn it was Amber), but is distracted by his phone, allowing the killer to strike.

Sydney Prescot (Neve Campbell) and Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) make it to the credits with only minor injuries (ie, multiple stab and bullet wounds) after helping Tara and Sam dispatch the killers.

Scream 6? If this one does well, we wouldn't bet against it.
