Throughout the history of Scream, the franchise has had different Ghostface Killers, each one following in the footsteps of Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich). Alongside the Ghostface Killer is usually, an accomplice that has some sort of connection to the person under the iconic mask and their own reason for assisting in the murders. Well, be warned, as MAJOR SCREAM 6 SPOILERS follow, as someone took the “killer reveal” scene from the upcoming film and uploaded it the Internet.

If you are reading this, then that means you don’t mind knowing the identity of the latest Ghostface Killer and of course, his apprentice. Scream 6 moves the action to New York and with bloody murders occurring in a new location, there’s a new Detective investigating them, Detective Baily (Dermot Mulroney) who just happens to be the very Ghostface Killer he’s “looking for.” This twist in Scream 6 is a common one for the franchise going back to the first film when Billy Loomis was “attacked” by the Ghostface Killer, that time it was Stu Macher (Matthew Lillard) faking the murder.

Well in addition to Detective Baily, his accomplice this time is revealed to be Ethan (Jack Champion), another new character to the franchise in Scream 6. While fans were theorizing that Tara Carpenter (Jenna Ortega) or Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere) might be behind the mask, it’s a bit disappointing to find out that instead it’s just a rehash of Scream 2. Both Baily and Ethan reveal they are related to Stu, making the most recent murders revenge for Sidney (Neve Campbell) killing Stu off in the first film.

So not only have the killers been spoiled, so has the motive, and in the start of the clip it’s clear that in addition to Tara, her sister Sam (Melissa Barrera) at least live long enough for the reveal. Not seen in the clip is Kirby, which means she might just be one of the Ghostface Killer’s victims. While a leak of this magnitude is catastrophic for a movie like Scream 6 that will purposely build to the grand reveal with twists, turns, and red herrings along the way, it’s not the first time a major leak has happened in Hollywood.

One of the worst leaks of all time happened with X-Men Origins: Wolverine when the entire film made it out onto the internet. While the cut that was leaked didn’t include most of the special effects, it let fans know the actual plot and development of the movie, which definitely hurt in its opening weekend reception. Scream 6 is from a franchise that loves to include clues in each film so that eagle-eyed viewers can go back and pick up on how the film outright told them who the killer was, which means even knowing the murderers identities, there’s likely still a lot to enjoy about the movie.

Scream 6 will be out on March 10th, just a little over three weeks away, so be sure not to share this spoiler with anyone that doesn’t already know, or doesn’t care about the film.
