Stab 5: Clock of Doom is the fifth instalment in the fictional Stab film franchise.


Ghostface goes back in time to eliminate the bloodline of Ashley Prescott, his victim that got away. What ensues as a chilling game of Cat and Mouse as the maniacal killer ends up in year 1865 where he has only one goal; Find and terminate Mary-Anne Prescott, Ashley's Great-Great-Great Grandmother.




  • Like Stab 4, the events of this film are completely original.
  • Jenny Randall, who was a big fan of the franchise, said that this film is the worst Stab in the series. She also states that it involves time travel.
  • The poster of Stab 5 is seen at the Cinema Club at Woodsboro High School during Scream 4.
  • Stab 5 is most likely a parody of the Terminator films (specifically the first one), seeing how Ghostface goes back in time to kill off someone's bloodline.
