Plot summary

What is Scream movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Scream" movie plot summary.

Twenty-five years after Billy Loomis and Stu Macher terrorized the town of Woodsboro, high schooler Tara Carpenter (Jenna Ortega) is home alone and texting her friend, Amber Freeman (Mikey Madison). The landline rings and Tara answers only to be confronted by a sadistic caller, who forces her to answer horror trivia by threatening Amber's life. When she gets a question wrong, Ghostface breaks into the house and attacks Tara, breaking her leg and stabbing her multiple times. Tara survives the attack but is badly wounded.
Tara's friend and classmate Wes Hicks (Dylan Minnette) informs her older sister Sam Carpenter (Melissa Barrera) about Tara's attack. Sam returns to Woodsboro with her boyfriend Richie (Jack Quaid) to visit Tara at the hospital, offering to stay until she recovers. Meanwhile, Wes' mother, Sheriff Judy Hicks (Marley Shelton), gathers the rest of their friend group, Amber, twin siblings Chad (Mason Gooding) and Mindy Meeks-Martin (Jasmin Savoy Brown), as well as Liv McKenzie (Sonia Ammar) for questioning. Sam, who struggles with hallucinations of Billy Loomis, discloses to Tara that he is her biological father, the reason why she left town. Meanwhile, Liv's summer fling Vince Schneider (Kyle Gallner) is murdered by Ghostface outside of a bar. Sam and Richie visit a reclusive Dewey Riley (David Arquette), who has been in a bad place ever since his split with Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox). The two ask for his help on stopping the killer, but he declines and kicks them out. However, Dewey contacts Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell) and Gale, changing his mind and joining the teens at Mindy and Chad's home. As they attempt to uncover the connection between the killer and Sam, Vince is revealed to be Stu's nephew. With the three attacks being on people related in some capacity to the original killers, Sam is accused of being the killer and angrily flees.
