Based on the #1 Bestseller "The Woodsboro Murders" by reporter Gale Weathers, Stab tells the true story of a young woman, Sidney Prescott, stalked by a serial killer in a town where anyone could be the next victim... or the next suspect!
Tori Spelling (TV's 90210) stars in this cleverly-plotted thriller, along with an offbeat cast of all-stars , including David Schwimmer (TV's Friends) and Luke Wilson (Home Fries). Don't miss this horror movie for the ages, a nonstop thrill ride as hilarious as it is terrifying!
Stab originally debuted in Scream 2, showing the opening scene and a scene between Sidney and Billy. The opening scene was used again in Scream 4. Two new scenes from the original Stab were revealed in Scream 5 that shows Randy discussing the rules of surviving and the scene with the killer behind him.
FUN FACT #1 This movie is based off of Gale Weather's second book, "The Woodsboro Murders."
FUN FACT #2 There are three different directors credited as directing this movie. One is Fred Rifkin, who's name was used in promotional materials for Scream 3. The other is Robert Rodriquez who was given the credit onscreen by Wes Craven in Scream 4. The third is Cary Granat who is credited with directing the movie on the Stab poster and sneak preview tickets.
FUN FACT #3 Gale Weathers played Gale Weathers in Stab. After watching Scream 3, many people believe that Jennifer Jolie played Gale in the first Stab because she said she felt like she shared a brain with Gale after 2 movies. She wasn't referring to the first Stab, she was referring to Stab 2 and the currently-in-production Stab 3.
FUN FACT #4 There's actually a third actress credited as playing Gale in the first Stab. Her name is Lori Thomas. Her name was used in promotional materials for Scream 3.
FUN FACT #5 In the first Scream, Sidney lamented if they made her life into a movie, they'd probably cast Tori Spelling as her. And they did!
FUN FACT #6 Scream 5 makes the mistake of crediting Jennifer Jolie as Gale in the first Stab. The killer also mistakenly tells Tara that Sidney's character was in all of the Stab films except the last one, which, if you've seen Scream 4, you know that's not correct.
FUN FACT #7 The scene from Scream 5 that shows Randy with the killer behind him is the only time the Fun World version of the Ghost Face costume is ever shown in a Scream/Stab film. Which makes no sense because in the opening scene we see the actual costume.
FUN FACT #8 On the promotional website for Scream 3, Joey Garfield was credited as playing Randy in Stab and Stab 2, but since the release of Scream 5, we now know he is actually played by Christopher Speed. Although he was never on an episode of Dr. Quinn, he is now the official Randy of Stab!
