Actors You Totally Forgot Were In The Scream Movies

The first film of the Scream franchise came out in 1996, and since then it has ruled the slasher horror genre. The latest one came out this year, and it was not any less scary than the first film. The early Scream movies focused on a killer in Woodsboro, known as Ghostface who terrorized the people in the town. The new movie moves to the next generation set twenty-five years after the killing spree Billy Loomis and Stu Matcher went on. Ghostface’s identity is revealed at the end of every movie. And it is always someone connected to the lead characters. All of us remember seeing stars Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox, Street Ulrich, and Emma Roberts. But we do not remember a lot of other actors that were a part of the Scream movies.
