Scream 2022 Video Teases Melissa Barrera's Distrustful Sam Carpenter

The latest video for 2022's Scream presents a tantalizing tease for newcomer Sam Carpenter, a Woodsboro resident who doesn't even trust herself. In just a couple weeks, the once-idyllic town of Woodsboro will once again find itself terrorized by another Ghostface killer. The Scream franchise returns to the big screen for the first time since 2011's divisive fourth installment, and it'll bring with it some familiar faces. Though this will be the first movie in the series not directed by Wes Craven, the core trio of Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox are all back to help the next generation survive a horror movie.

Helmed by Ready or Not filmmakers Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, Scream finds Ghostface targeting a new wave of victims. As the first trailer for the movie confirmed, the killer is targeting those related to previous iterations of Ghostface, but for the most part, Scream has kept those relationships under wraps. A TikTok page set up for the film recently revealed Mindy Meeks-Martin (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Chad Meeks-Martin (Mason Gooding) are related to Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy), a pivotal character from the original films - though not a Ghostface. Beyond them, fans are still piecing together the significance of each new Scream character.

One particular person of interest is Melissa Barrera's Sam Carpenter. Sam has been prominently featured in many of the marketing materials for Scream, and the trailer even seemed to place her as this generation's Sidney Prescott. The latest Scream TikTok focuses on her while also casting her in a rather suspicious light. As Sam laments the state of her town, she also admits something concerning: She doesn't even trust herself amid everything.


Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett have gone to great lengths to keep the identity of the new Ghostface a mystery. From filming alternate endings to putting everyone in a Ghostface mask during the Scream marketing campaign, the directors have ensured each character is a suspect. That includes Sam; though she's being positioned as a heroine so far, that could be a misdirect. Sam's related to fellow new character Tara (Jenna Ortega), though based on the Scream trailer, she might not make it very far into the runtime.

Tara's status as a likely victim doesn't remove Sam from suspicion, though. As previous Scream installments have shown, Ghostface killers aren't above taking out family members. Perhaps Sam and Tara don't have a good relationship? Fans will have to check out the new Scream to get all the answers. It's a good thing there are only a few weeks to go before everything will be revealed.
