Best Scream 6 kills, ranked

Its premiere Scream 6 has brought back tons of familiar faces, with Gale Weathers carrying the torch from the original trilogy, while Kirby returns from Scream 4and the survivors of 2022 Scream all together again… this time in New York. But, as the franchise continues, so does its shock factor. In the trailer alone we saw Ghostface wielding a shotgun and plowing through an entire bodega, making it clear from the start that the film is more extreme than ever.

But, surprisingly, the film’s kill count isn’t that high. Unlike the new one Carnival trilogy, where Michael Myers cuts 20 to 30 people (or more) per film, Scream 6 returned the franchise to its roots, where it’s not about how many people get killed, but more about how suspenseful and terrifying those kills are. Read on to find out what Scream 6The best kills are, but beware… this article contains spoilers.

5. Anika (Devyn Nekoda)

Paramount Pictures

One of the most brutal deaths Scream 6 it was Anika, his girlfriend Scream 5 Survivor, Mindy (Jasmin Savoy Brown). Although Brown wasn’t as exciting in the last film, she really fleshed out her character Scream 6 and she did a great job, which made it all the more difficult to see her and her new girlfriend being attacked. At the beginning of the film, all the survivors are camping with Tara (Jenna Ortega) in her apartment. Unfortunately, Ghostface is already there, hiding in the bathroom. The first to be stabbed is Anika, who receives a rather serious stab in her abdomen.

Being a classic New York apartment, one of the bedroom windows is only about 7 feet from the next apartment … but it’s also six stories up, so they have to use a ladder to get up to the other side.

Knowing that she is likely to be mortally wounded, Anika is the last to go down the ladder, allowing everyone else to escape. When Anika climbs the stairs, Ghostface isn’t far behind her, and as she tries to go up the opposite side, the killer starts swinging and bouncing up the stairs. Paralyzed with fear, Anika hangs on as best she can, but after Ghostface tilts the ladder, she slips, falling and crushing her head on the side of a dumpster as she crumples to the alley below.

It’s an absolutely brutal murder, and it’s also one of the most emotional. Annika sacrificing herself so others can live is the kind of maturity you don’t often see in horror movies these days, making it all the more painful and heartbreaking to watch her die.

4. Ethan (Champion Jack)

“I’ve always wanted to stick something inside you” is the vulgar and misogynistic line Ethan says to Tara as he tries to stab her. Cute, nerdy, naive Ethan turns out to be one of the killers at the end of the movie, and his boyish charm fades as soon as his secret is revealed. Unfortunately for Ethan, he’s the one who’s about to get something stuck inside him… as Tara puts a knife straight into his open mouth.

As he turns the knife, Ethan chokes on his own blood and it comes out of his mouth, dripping down his chin. It’s a gruesome and intense kill, but considering how much Tara and her sister have been through and the number of people Ethan has killed at this point, it’s also oddly satisfying to see him get what he deserves.

3. The Bodega Guy

The craziest scene in the entire movie actually comes relatively early on, when Ghostface chases Tara and her sister into a crowded bodega. After Ghostface stabs a man, the store owner pulls out a shotgun, but misses and ends up getting stabbed as well, before the killer takes the gun and shoots him.

The scene is absolutely weird and, under normal circumstances, I would feel completely out of touch with it Scream movie theater. But Scream 6Its tagline reads, “New City, New Rules,” letting us know that these new killers aren’t going to follow the old ’90s tropes. In some ways, the scene works and fits the vibe of the film, however, with the epidemic of mass shootings in America, something about the bodega scene feels a little too real and hits a little too close to home, making it scary with a completely different way.

2. Gale Weathers (Courtney Cox)

Fortunately, Gale Weathers got the death scene she deserved. She played it smart, she was strong and she didn’t go down without a fight. Unfortunately, two assassins sneaked into her penthouse apartment, and when you’re 50 stories up, you don’t exactly have many places to run. But Gayle did not go down easily. He used everything he could to fight back, including a gun, a cast iron skillet, and even a vase.

Because of her legacy with the franchise, emotions run high during the scene because you want her to survive so badly, but after seeing what happened to David Arquette in the last film, you also know that no one is safe anymore. Gail ends up getting stabbed multiple times, and despite fighting back as hard as she can, ends up collapsing and seemingly dying.

By the time the medics arrive, she looks almost dead. Fortunately, they find he still has a weak pulse. While Gale didn’t technically die, this was definitely a kill scene because of the fans thought he had died. His suspense and chase also made it one of the best scenes in the entire movie.

1. Jason Carvey (Tony Revolori)

Scream 6 continue with me Scream 5its delivery not to include a Stab-based on the opening scene. Instead, it centers on a film studies professor (Samara Weaving) who is lured on a blind date by one of her students, Jason, who wants to kill her because she’s desperate to revive Stab privilege.

After murdering her, he takes off his mask and goes back to his apartment where he talks to his friend on the phone about how great it was to murder someone. Right off the bat, he’s unlikely. First of all, no one wants to see the killer at the beginning of the movie. Second, he has the demeanor of an overprivileged man-baby. And finally, he doesn’t even deliver his lines that well. For him to be our killer Scream 6 it would be an absolute disaster. Luckily, the guy he’s talking to on the phone isn’t actually his friend, which Jason quickly finds out when he finds his dismembered body stuffed in the fridge.

When Ghostface is revealed, there is a huge sense of relief. Finally, we have a killer who is in control, smart, and hates Jason as much as the audience. It’s horrible to say this, but watching Tony get stabbed to death felt good. For a brief moment, it seemed that Scream 6 it was going to be an awful movie with an immature sack of a murderer. Fortunately, Scream did what Scream he always does and subverts expectations, executing the scene flawlessly and revealing the film’s first major twist right away.
