The Stab film series is a fictional series of slasher movies, originally based on the life of Sidney Prescott and her encounters with the various Ghostface killers. So far, seven films have been released under the Stab name. It was mentioned by Jenny Randall that the first three Stab films were based on the true story of Sidney Prescott, but after her life returned to normal and almost suing Sunrise Studios, the subsequent films became fictional.
Sequel trilogy and further films
- Sequel trilogy: Stab 4: Knife of Doom, Stab 5: Clock of Doom, and Stab 6: Ghostface Returns
- Further films: Stab 7
Following the conclusion of the original Stab trilogy, which was based on the life of Sidney Prescott, a sequel trilogy was developed by Sunrise Studios. Stab 4: Knife of Doom and Stab 5: Clock of Doom were developed between the events of Scream 3 and 4.
Not much is known about the Stab films besides the plots of the first three films (as they mirrored the direct events of the Scream films and due to the fact that footage has only been shown from the first Stab, Stab 6 and Stab 7). However, Stab 5: Clock of Doom was explained to have time travel by Jenny Randall, who also mentions that Stab 5 was the worst entry in the series. The opening of Stab 6: Ghostface Returns serves as the opening of Scream 4 and shows schoolgirls Sherrie and Trudie being attacked and killed by Ghostface. This, in turn, serves as the opening of Stab 7 (also the opening of Scream 4) which shows two friends Rachel and Chloe watching Stab 6 and criticizing the film. This seventh entry in the Stab series ends with Chloe killing Rachel.
It is presumed that the eighth installment in the Stab franchise will premiere along with the highly anticipated Scream 5.
Cast and characters
The characters are loosely based on the actual characters from the Scream films. However, following the third installment of Stab, all characters were completely original.
