The Ghostface killer is back for the sixth time in the upcoming movie Scream 6. The recently released trailer reveals that the new Ghostface wears a weathered and cracked mask, displayed at the Scream 6 Experience event in Santa Monica. The mask was labeled “Billy Loomis” and is the same one Skeet Ulrich’s character wore in the original 1996 film.

This connection between the new Ghostface mask and the original Scream has sparked much speculation among fans of the franchise. The question on everyone’s mind is whether this connection is just an Easter Egg or if it hints at the identity of the new Ghostface killer. In this article, we’ll explore the possible significance of this connection and its potential implications for the plot of Scream 6.

Possible Implications Of The Connection

The connection between the new Ghostface’s mask and the original Scream has led many to believe the new killer could be connected to the previous ones. One theory is that Sam Carpenter, the illegitimate daughter of Billy Loomis, could be the one behind the mask. Sam was introduced in Scream (2022), and her connection to Billy Loomis was revealed in that movie. So if she had access to her father’s mask, it’s possible that she could be the new Ghostface killer.

Another theory is that the new killer could be a copycat who the previous Ghostface killers inspired. In the original Scream, Billy Loomis and his friend Stu Macher (Matthew Lillard) were revealed to be the killers. Since then, several copycat killers have used the Ghostface persona to terrorize their victims. So its new killer may be another copycat who has obtained Billy Loomis’ mask to pay homage to the original killers.

The Significance Of The Mask

The weathered and cracked mask worn by the new Ghostface is significant not just because of its connection to the original Scream but also because of what it represents. The mask has become an iconic symbol of the Ghostface killer, and its appearance in Scream 6 suggests that the filmmakers are trying to pay homage to the original movie. By using the same mask that Billy Loomis wore, the filmmakers remind viewers of the franchise’s roots and connection to the original Scream.

Additionally, the weathered and cracked appearance of the mask suggests that it has been worn many times before. This could be a nod to the fact that there have been several Ghostface killers throughout the franchise. However, it could also hint that the new killer has worn the mask as a previous Ghostface killer or a copycat.
