Fellow star Melissa Barrera (Sam Carpenter) went on to reveal that she didn't even attempt to guess who the new Ghostface was, especially as the cast weren't initially given the finale scene to read.

"I didn't even try to guess," she said. "I was just stressed out that I didn't have the last act of the script, and my mind was just like: 'I just wanna read it!' I wasn't even guessing."

The first reactions for Scream VI arrived over the weekend, and critics have largely praised the sequel. It sees Sam, Tara and others go to New York as they try to leave Woodsboro in their past — though a new killer isn't far behind.

One person missing this time around is Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott. The star explained last year that issues behind the scenes led her to turn down a return.

"Sadly I won't be making the next Scream film," she said. "As a woman, I have had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to Scream. I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I have brought to the franchise. It's been a very difficult decision to move on.

"To all my Scream fans, I love you. You've always been so incredibly supportive to me. I'm forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years."

Scream VI is out now in UK cinemas and will be released in US cinemas on March 10.
