A new series of Scream (2022) posters show the supporting cast holding the Ghostface mask. The famous slasher franchise began terrifying audiences in 1996, when legendary horror director Wes Craven brought the Ghostface killer into existence. In addition to the masked murderer, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette anchor the franchise, which comprises four total films to date. With a complete box-office take of over $60o million worldwide, the likely catalyst for Ghostface’s upcoming return in what will be the fifth of the Scream films is no secret.
As horror fans everywhere mourned the passing of Craven in 2015, the new Scream will be the first film in the series without the legendary filmmaker calling the shots, and directing duo Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are stepping in to fill the void. The pair have publicly shared their love and respect for the late master of horror and plan to pay homage to his legacy in the upcoming film.
Scream’s marketing campaign has done a relatively good job of keeping major plot points under wraps, and strategically timed releases of posters and clips have seemingly left audiences with more questions than answers. The recent release of character posters featuring Campbell, Cox, and Arquette holding the Ghostface mask stays true to the familiar mystery of who is now hiding behind it.
