The Scream movies are known for gut punching the audience with the brutal killings of fan favorite characters and the upcoming Scream 6 is teasing that we might get another instance of this where the movie rips fans hearts out by killing off Gale Weathers so with that in mind I give my list of the worst deaths from the Scream franchise.
5. Kirby Reed in Scream 4
I know that it has been revealed that Kirby Reed (played by Hayden Panettiere) didn’t actually die in Scream 4 but for more than a decade we all accepted that Kirby was killed by Charlie Walker (played by Rory Culkin). After watching Kirby re-enact the original Scream’s intro scene where Casey Becker has to play horror movie trivia to save her boyfriend’s life, ace the game with tons of panache and think that she has saved the nerdy guy who she has finally started to reciprocate feelings toward only to end up being stabbed by him was a tough one.
Charlie berating her before stabbing her a second time and leaving her for dead is a lot less hard to watch now that we know she survived but at the time it was kinda rough to watch a cool character that was like a combo of Sidney and Randy, who also seemed like a good enough character to carry the torch forward for the franchise, get bumped off just as we were starting to get to know her.
