Scream revolutionized horror when it came out in 1996. The Wes Craven film turned horror on its head and pulled back the curtain on the “rules of horror”. With it’s 25 year anniversary coming up, everyone is talking about Scream. Our friends at Bloody Disgusting interviewed Matthew Lillard and Skeet Ulrich about the film and it’s legacy. They did ask a pretty pressing question about the fates of their two characters.

In the interview, they even confirmed why Ghostface moves so awkwardly and stumbles at times. The horror master Wes Craven took Matthew Lillard’s movements from real-life and gave them to the character. Ulrich teased:

Wes would watch Matt walk, and he’d typically bump into shit and fall down randomly. It led him to make Ghostface a little more clumsy. You could tell which people Stu killed.

Lilliard went on to talk about the strong feelings he has for his character’s fate from the first film.

Yes! I’m alive! Stu is alive! You need to support me in this! Skeet’s Dead! He’s Dead!… I’m alive. And I want you to know something. We need to start a writing campaign. We need to petition this.

Stu Lives! Stu Lives!

After all, it was just a big 90s television that fell on him. There’s no mention of Stu in any of the sequels, but with the fifth installment in the franchise coming in January of next year, anything is possible. Lillard’s profile has only grown since the release of Scream. He’s a huge fan favorite among horror junkies. Even if it’s just for a cameo in the upcoming fifth movie, that would be awesome to see the true fate of Stu. As for Billy, he’s about as dead as they come in horror. Seeing as how he’s not a supernatural or otherworldly killer like Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers, that’s a pretty close to 100% death. Now, this being horror movies, it’s easy to bring someone back to life.

Would you want to see Billy and Stu make their returns for the upcoming fifth Scream movie?

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie, a brand new 4K UHD limited edition SteelBook and Blu-ray hits shelves on October 19th, 2021.
