An old stereotype may reveal a new killer in ‘Scream?’

The Screaming The franchise, led by the late Wes Craven and written by Kevin Willamson, has always adhered to certain slasher movie rules. If a character says they’ll “be right back,” they’ll probably die. Likewise, the last girl always lives, and so on. Due to some of these rules, the franchise has followed certain patterns, and such a pattern could provide clues as to who the killer might be in the new installment. Screaming.

The templates mainly revolve around characters from Screaming in contrast to its sequels. For example, in the first three movies, one of the original characters from the original Screaming was killed. In Screaming 2 it’s Randy and in Scream 3 it’s Cotton Wear.

The argument can be extended to say that Kate Roberts replaces an original character in Screaming 4, because she’s Sidney’s aunt. However, even if she doesn’t count in this model, she and her daughter, murderer Jill Roberts certainly count in another. This can also prove that someone in Screaming people in the original, can die. Sorry, Dewey.

Model that can kill the killer in the new part Screaming is that every movie features a killer with ties to the family of Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell). Stuart (Matthew Lillard) and Billy (Skeet Ulrich), murderers from Screaming, killing Maureen Prescott, Sidney’s mother. One of the killers in Screaming 2 is Billy’s mother, who divorced her husband because of his affair with Sidney’s mother. In Scream 3 The killer is Roman (Scott Foley), the son of Maureen and the killer in Screaming 4 is Jill Roberts (Emma Roberts), who is related by blood to Sidney – her niece.


This model shows who the killer is in the new season Screaming is someone related to Sidney or who has a history with someone in her family. This fueled the old rumor that Matthew Lillard would return to play Stu, who, along with Billy, killed Sidney’s mother.


The intro video released a few months ago seems to point towards it being from the franchise’s past, and it wouldn’t be strange if the killer’s identity coincided with these stereotypes. With that being said Screaming known for changing the rules.
