“SCREAM” movies have been entertaining us since 1996. The gap between the third and fourth installment was 11 years. Now, after a decade the franchise is coming up with Scream 5. The story is simple but terrifying. The Ghostface is set to make a comeback with his sinister plans. Over the years, Ghostface has murdered many people in all four movies. Some of the deaths were unexpected, shocking, and gruesome. So, here’s a list of shocking deaths in the Scream franchise. Check it out! Let us know in the comments which death was the most shocking to you!
1. Casey Becker
Drew Barrymore played Casey Becker in the first film, Scream. This was the first entry in the franchise and the scariest one. Casey is portrayed as the protagonist, thanks to misled marketing. But she isn’t. However, she is important for the movie. Her death is gruesome and sets the precedent for the film: expect the unexpected. She was stabbed by Ghostface in the face several times.
2. Stu Macher
The revelation at the end of Scream was that the killer was in pair. Syndey gets into a fight with the duo and manages to get an upper hand in the fight with Stu. She uses a TV to attack him and he is electrocuted. That’s how he dies. Moreover, it is believed he is the first antagonist to be killed by a home entertainment device in a horror film. Therefore, his death was very innovative!
3. Randy Meeks
He is one of the few characters who made it out alive from the first film and made it to the sequel. His murder is rage-filled and truly gruesome. He gets a call from Ghostface and decides to insult the previous killers. Little did he know that one of the new killers is Billy’s mom. He is dragged into a van and stabbed multiple times.
4. Cici Cooper
The makers used Sarah Michelle Gellar to play the role. She was famous for playing characters in other horror films and surviving them. So, the audience thought she’d pull out from this one too. However, it was a shock to all of us when she was murdered in what we can call the franchise’s best chase scenes ever! Even though at one point she could manage to grab the knife, she couldn’t make it through. Ghostface stabbed her in the back and threw her out of the balcony.
5. Jennifer Jolie
One character that stands out in Scream 3 is Jennifer. It was shocking to see Jennifer die the way she did. Jennifer was trapped behind a one-way mirror with Ghostface. She was calling out Dewey for help and was nearly saved. However, it was too late and she was dead.
6. Kirby Reed
Reed is one of the newest addition to the franchise and was loved by fans. However, her death was one of the most shocking ones in the last film. Kirby was one of the strongest enemies of Ghostface. She tries to save Charlie as she talks to Ghostface. However, she was killed. By who? Here comes the twist. Charlie stabs her multiple times and leaves her there to die while she did all this to save him.
