'Guess Who?': Jenna Ortega starrer film 'Scream VI' drops a new unique poster
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Ghostface invites viewers to play a guessing game in the newest poster for 'Scream 6'. Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson revived the slasher genre with 1996’s original 'Scream,' the first of a series of four movies. In 2022, the Scream franchise was revived with a legacy sequel that went on to be a surprisingly big hit, grossing $140 million. The new film is described, "Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter. In Scream VI, Melissa Barrera ('Sam Carpenter'), Jasmin Savoy Brown ('Mindy Meeks-Martin'), Mason Gooding ('Chad Meeks-Martin'), Jenna Ortega ('Tara Carpenter'), Hayden Panettiere ('Kirby Reed'), and Courteney Cox ('Gale Weathers') return to their roles in the franchise alongside Jack Champion, Henry Czerny, Liana Liberato, Dermot Mulroney, Devyn Nekoda, Tony Revolori, Josh Segarra, and Samara Weaving."
Given those 'Scream 5' box office numbers, it’s no surprise that 'Scream 6' is now on its way, as teased again by a new poster previewing the movie’s cat-and-mouse game between Ghostface and the rest of the cast.

“Guess who’s the killer?” says the official Scream Twitter account, inviting fans to engage in the now-traditional 'Scream' ritual of figuring out which character or characters might be hiding behind the Ghostface mask this time. The 'Scream' franchise unquestionably belongs to the slasher subgenre, and just as important to the overall mythology as violent deaths is a twisted and perplexing mystery about the identity of each film's killers, with a poster for the upcoming 'Scream VI' replicating the beloved Guess Who? board game. The poster features characters from previous films in the series as potential suspects, as well as depicting the newcomers to the franchise who will be making their debut with the upcoming film, as those who could be behind the identity of the killer.

Everything we know about Ghostface
Ghostface was named after a vinyl Halloween mask that was sold as a 'Father Death' costume in real life. The mask was inspired by the Edvard Munch painting, 'The Scream'. Ghostface often called his victims on the phone, taunting or threatening them before stabbing them to death with an eight-inch hunting knife. On occasion, he would quiz his victims about horror movies and stalk them in a manner reminiscent of those movies.
