Skeet Ulrich, the star of ‘Scream,’ has never seen the sequels.

When the teaser for Scream Part 5 was released on Oct. 12, over 25 years after the original film was released in theaters, it sparked a new wave of interest.

Fans are anticipating the return of Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, as well as David Arquette as Dewey and Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers.

Skeet Ulrich — aka Billy Loomis — and two other original cast members recently weighed in on the film.

All of the ‘Scream’ sequels were skipped by Skeet Ulrich.

Ulrich chatted with People recently to reflect on Scream and its looming anniversary. With all of the attention on Scream 5, it’s worth taking a look back at the Ghostface who started it all.

Ulrich played Billy Loomis, Sidney’s rather adoring lover.

However, it was not revealed until the end of the film that he despised her and her family.

Why? Sid’s mother had an affair with Billy’s father, which caused his family to fall apart.

Billy finally revealed himself as Ghostface after toying with the viewers — and the characters in the film.

Stu, played by Matthew Lillard, is his murderous sidekick. The retribution concept was explored more in the Scream sequels, but Ulrich would never know.

“I have no expectations, I’m excited to watch it,” he told People when asked about his opinions on the new Scream. He also acknowledged to not having seen Scream 2, 3, or 4. Lillard, Ulrich’s co-star, joined in, advising him to see all four films before moving on to the next. He could have time to binge watch them now that his Riverdale run is finished.

Ulrich had no idea the film would become a classic.

Scream was a slasher revival film that debuted at a time when traditional teen horror films were in decline. Wes Craven’s film became a smash hit, with some fans watching it many times due to the plot’s twist.

The opening scene with Drew Barrymore is one of the most famous in the genre, but the cast had no idea the film would become so popular.

“To be honest, it was nothing that truly crossed our minds… we had no clue,” Ulrich told People. “I felt like we were doing really good work on it, and everyone was giving something to it that was a lot of fun and really worked, and we were really enthusiastic about the process of developing it — but we had no idea.” Fans of ‘Scream 5’ are wondering what happened to Stu. While Billy was killed in the first film, Brinkwire Entertainment has some breaking news.
