Biography [ ]
Danny's fascination with murder dated back when his father, a serial killer and war veteran, trained Danny on how to hunt and stalk people in the woods. Johnson's first victim (or as he calls it, his "first design") was his own father. He murdered his dad during a camping trip in a bloody and emotional way, which he regrets. He also has a very sinister philosophy on humanity. In college, he took a class in anthropology where he argued that humanity was intrinsically a race of killers masking its true "bloody face of horror" with facades to take advantage of civilization and achievement.
Eventually, under the pseudonym of Jed Olsen, he became a freelance journalist specializing in crime articles. To become famous, he started committing murders as the Ghost Face, a killer shrouded in mystery. Many of his victims were young and old, confusing authorities by carrying out premeditated murders with the violence of a crime of passion. Johnson enjoyed being the mystery behind the killings, and continued stalking some of his victims for days. He traveled from state to state including Utah and Pennsylvania.
He also had an experience with a parody newspaper which mocked him and other serial killers. After meticulously planning a break-in and murder of the most ordinary person he could find (in order to terrify all the other 'normal' people in the area), he was distracted and enraged by seeing the parody papers of his persona on a table. This almost caused him to get caught, so he was unable to carry out his murder. Afterwards, he tracked down and stalked the three people who created the parody.
Finding out that they use a laser tag building to hang out in and print their parodies, he plots another break in and murder. He plans to kill them one by one as they play laser tag with each other. Once he breaks in, he sees a massive wall filled with parodies. Attempting to calm himself down, he repeats the phrase "You don't laugh at legends." Eventually Danny blacks out, and when he came to realize that he has attacked the three men. One of them is dead off to the side, and another has been mutilated beyond recognition. Standing over the last man, who was attempting to crawl away, Danny rants about his parodies and then talks about how he is going to write a paper about this incident and pin the blame on one of them for murdering the other men. Danny realizes that he was not wearing his mask during this attack, but then reasons with himself that it was a more personal matter, since the Ghost Face doesn't kill like this.
In 1993, upon traveling to the town of Roseville, Florida, Danny produced footage of the Ghost Face breaking into a house and committing murder, effectively making a newspaper about himself. He swiftly left Roseville when evidence began pointing to him, but not before leaving a mocking note confirming he was the one behind the killings. He was hiding out somewhere during a hot summer day, where he reminisced about past murders and wondered when the heat was going to stop. He seemed to be having memory issues, not knowing when he last ate. Then, a mysterious cold fog appeared in the room, and he suited up and stepped inside.

- Due to copyright conflicts over the Ghostface character, Behaviour Interactive had to create a completely new and original killer separate from the Scream franchise, keeping only the original mask. However, they were later given the rights to use the original Ghostface costume and it was added as a skin.
- The floating cloth traps on most of Ghost Face's skins represent a connection with the Entity.
- Compared to the Ghostface(s) from Scream , who were very impulsive and get caught easily, Dead by Daylight's Ghost Face is a far more sinister and cunning killer than his original counterparts as he greatly understands the risks of murder, only giving in to his bloodthirst when he knows he can actually get away with it.
- Rolling was Wes Craven's inspiration when creating the Scream films.
- Johnson's Viper Ghost cosmetic strengthens possible proof with the outfit description stating he attended a costume party thrown by students in Roseville University.
- Taneski's father, like Danny's, was also a war veteran.
- The "Scorched Ghost Face" outfit, which was designed by BHVR for their regular Halloween event, was eventually made into a full official costume by the company which makes the Ghostface outfits and masks.
- Despite the fact that Danny hates parody to the point of berserk rage, he was given the "Wassup" Ghostface mask, which was popularized by the Scream parody Scary Movie . So, it could be considered a form of punishment that he has to wear it.
- Danny once chose to murder a man due to his name, which he considered exceptionally average due to both his first and last name being boring English first names. This is ironic, considering his real name "Danny Johnson" also fits the criteria. His fake name, Jed Olsen, is much more unique by comparison.

- 2 Powers and Stats
- 5 Discussions
Danny Johnson , also known under the alias of Jed Olsen , was always a fan of scary stories, as his father would tell him stories of humanity's most wretched acts. Growing up, Danny grew to become obsessed with the idea of making his own stories, and so took up the mantle of Ghost Face , a killer in a white mask and dark robe.
From there, Danny terrorized the city of Roseville, Florida, publishing stories of his own murder in the newspaper he help to create.
It wasn't long after he moved on from Roseville than Danny was taken in by The Entity , where he quickly became one of its favorite killers.
Powers and Stats

Classification: Serial killer
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics , Weapon Mastery , passive Fear Aura via The Heartbeat (The very presence of a killer is enough to incite panic, severe anxiety, and terror. Amplified through proximity.), Stealth Mastery (The Killers possess natural stalking ability and can mask The Heartbeat), Enhanced Senses (A Killer's senses are so acute that they can detect minor disturbances in terrain as a trail to their target alongside their ability to detect the smell of blood and sound of breathing from great distances), Extrasensory Perception (Killers are able to see the auras of those bleeding out or attempting to heal their wounds), Immortality (Types 1 & 8; Killers have an importance of collecting food for The Entity , and will be resurrected by it should they be killed), Berserk Mode and Speed Boost (should the lust for the kill become too great, the Entity's connection to the Killer will be cut off, making them unpredictable), Blessed (The Entity favors the Killer's and will aid through indirect means should it be beneficial), Empowerment (via No One Escapes Death; the attacks motivated through this hex are more lethal, making strikes that would only injure become critically lethal. The Ghost can obtain this through stalking), Summoning (via Hooking; exists as a sacrificial ritual to The Entity, awakening it to take the soul of the victim. As well, Cruel Limits , Thrilling Tremors , and Corrupt Intervention among others all summon the spikes and arms of the entity to meddle with generators and block off escapes), Status Effect Inducement (Hemorrhage and Mangled; provokes intense bleeding and slows down the process of healing respectively), Technology Manipulation ( Surge , among other perks meddle with nearby technology. Surge, specifically, is said to charge the air and mess with tech), Statistics Reduction ( Mindbreaker claims that “your distressing presence drains and weakens your prey” and “can evoke feelings of dread and fatigue in nearby individuals,” alongside causing exhaustion in-game), minor Perception Manipulation (via Huntress Lullaby; those who are hooked find their perceptions muddled), Power Nullification (via The Third Seal; negates Extrasensory Perception through the Blindness effect), Resistance to Pain (Enduring) and Blinding (Lightborn).

Standard Tactics: Is naturally bloodlusted
Weaknesses: Killers are servants of the Entity, making them more prone to preserve their prey first in an attempt to sacrifice them. The Stain is an indication of where killers are looking, making their line of sight more exploitable.
- Night Shroud: The Ghost can enter a stealth mode in which his Terror Radius is eliminated. He can stalk victims for four seconds, which marks them as Exposed, allowing them to be downed in one hit.

This new scream 7 killer theory would be the perfect way to honor the sidney prescott era.
One theory about Scream 7's new Ghostface would better utilize a returning actor while also paying homage to the franchise's past killer twists.
- Scream 7 could bring back Josh Segarra's Danny as Ghostface, repeating the franchise twist of having the boyfriend as the killer.
- Josh Segarra's Ghostface audition was highly praised by Scream 6 's directors, making him a strong choice for the role in Scream 7 .
- Segarra's pitch for a Ghostface musical in Scream 7 also aligns with his Broadway background and could provide an interesting storyline similar to Scream 3 .
Scream 7 ’s new killer could finally utilize one returning actor with a highly praised Ghostface audition, though this would also mean repeating a franchise twist for the fourth time. Paramount has finally announced that Scream 7 is in development , and while the sequel already has new director Christopher Landon on board, the story and cast have yet to be confirmed. However, it’s expected that Scream 7 will move forward with the actors whose characters survived Scream 6 's Ghostface attacks, which includes new reboot movie stars like Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, and Josh Segarra.
Since Scream 6 ’s Ghostface killers were revealed to Wayne Bailey, Ethan Landry, and Quinn Bailey, the father and younger siblings of Scream (2022) killer Richie Kirsch, the upcoming sequel now has the difficult task of finding its new Ghostface(s). While it’s likely that Scream 7 ’s Ghostface will be a new character, it’s possible that the sequel will pull from its existing ensemble for the next villain. If this is the case, then Scream 7 already has a perfect returning character lined up, as the auditions for new actors in Scream 6 involved reading Amber’s Ghostface monologue from Scream (2022). One actor whose character survived Scream 6 's ending was singled out for his incredible Ghostface audition, making him a great choice for the franchise’s next killer.
Danny Being Scream 7's Ghostface Would Revive The Franchise's Boyfriend Killer Trope
According to Scream 6 director Tyler Gillett (via Collider ), Danny actor Josh Segarra had a “ f****** awesome ” Ghostface reading. While Danny was suspected of being Ghostface due to his novelty to the group and status as Sam’s new boyfriend – one of the most suspicious roles to play in the franchise – the character turned out to be harmless in Scream 6 ’s ending. However, given how highly Scream 6 ’s directors praised Segarra’s Ghostface audition, the upcoming sequel could subvert expectations (again) by walking back the 2023 movie’s assertion that Danny isn’t a killer. Segarra’s reading indicates that he already has the skills to pull off this twist, suggesting he could finally don the mask and blade in Scream 7 .
Josh Segarra’s Danny being revealed as Ghostface in Scream 7 would mark the fourth time in the franchise that the boyfriend is actually the killer. Scream has often played with this expectation as the boyfriend quickly climbs to being a top suspect, which even applies to Danny in Scream 6 . However, the only occasions in which these assumptions turned out to be correct were in Scream (1996) when Sidney’s boyfriend Billy truly was Ghostface, Scream 4 when Kirby’s brief love interest Charlie became the killer, and Scream (2022) when Sam’s boyfriend Richie was confirmed as the Ghostface mastermind. Danny being Ghostface would also mark the first time that a returning prominent character is revealed as the killer.
Josh Segarra's Scream 7 Pitch Already Sets Him Up As The Perfect Ghostface
Though it would be upsetting for Sam Carpenter to have two different boyfriends assume Ghostface’s identity, Danny would make a great killer given Josh Segarra’s pitch for Scream 7 ’s story . The actor suggested that Scream 7 should be a Ghostface musical, which could end up involving a New York City Broadway storyline similar to Scream 3 ’s Los Angeles Hollywood plot. Since Segarra himself has performed on Broadway in various musicals throughout his career, a meta-commentary on his own history could become the source of a great new Ghostface monologue. Though Scream 7 isn’t likely to go down the avenue of a Ghostface musical, Segarra could still bring these Broadway-level acting talents to the sequel if Danny is revealed as the killer.
9 Sam & Tara Storylines That Will Never Be Resolved After Scream 7's Exits
Posted: January 5, 2024 | Last updated: January 6, 2024
- Scream 7 won't continue the story of Sam and Tara Carpenter, leaving major questions unanswered.
- The absence of Sam and Tara's story in Scream 7 makes it unclear how the series will continue.
- The departure of Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega leaves numerous mysteries surrounding Sam and Tara unresolved.
Now that Scream 7 has lost both Jenna Ortega and Melissa Barrera, the franchise’s story of Sam and Tara Carpenter will leave many questions unanswered. While Barrera’s Sam Carpenter was seemingly the lead character of 2022’s slasher reboot Scream (aka Scream 2022), Ortega’s Tara was also significant. She was the recipient of the film's opening phone call and, in a move that subverted Scream franchise tradition, she survived both this intense ordeal and the rest of the plot. Sam and Tara made a formidable pairing, with the sequel Scream VI treating both characters as the movie’s dual protagonists.
However, the upcoming Scream 7 won’t be continuing their story. Barrera was fired from the sequel in November 2023 and Ortega exited the franchise shortly after due to scheduling conflicts with Wednesday season 2. As a result, Scream 7 will no longer have the story of the Carpenter sisters at its center. This is a major development since Sam and Tara were the heart of Scream 2022 and Scream VI , and on a more practical level, they were the main characters of both sequels. Without Sam and Tara's story, it is unclear how Scream 7 will continue the series. Furthermore, this leaves numerous Sam and Tara mysteries unresolved.
A Scream 7 Return Just Got Way More Likely Thanks To A Canceled Horror Show
Sam & tara’s relationship, the sisters' emotional reunion at the end of scream vi could have been strained by the aftermath..
Now that Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega are officially out of the franchise, some of Scream VI 's biggest remaining questions will never be answered. One storyline being left unresolved concerns Sam and Tara’s tearful reunion at the end of the sequel. Throughout Scream VI , Tara and Sam cope with the events of Scream 2022 in very different, equally unhealthy ways. Sam has become paranoid and overprotective while Tara tries to repress her memories of the traumatic massacre. This drove the sisters apart and, while Scream VI ’s ending reunited them, it is impossible to know if this lasted.
Sam's Life In New York
The scream vi heroine had no clear plans after the movie ended..
Sam’s paranoia was her biggest problem in Scream VI , and this would presumably only have gotten worse when Scream 7 forced her to find a job in New York City. Although she lived with Tara in the sequel, Sam freely admitted that she didn’t know what her plan was for her future. While Sam’s visions of Billy in the Scream reboot movies were more pressing than her employment status in the last sequel, returning to relative stability meant she would have needed to find a solid life plan before Scream 7 ’s story began. Viewers will never know what that plan might have been.
Ghostface's Reason For Targeting Sam & Tara Again
Tara and sam’s connection to scream 7 ’s killer would be hard to justify..
Scream 2022 surprised viewers from its opening scene when Sidney Prescott wasn’t the first person targeted by the new Ghostface. The reboot’s villains sought out Sam and Tara precisely because they were only tangentially connected to one of the original movie's killers, Billy Loomis, while Scream VI ’s killers attacked them because Sam and Tara killed a member of their family. As such, it is tough to see what personal connection Scream 7 ’s Ghostface could have had with the sisters. This means that the duo’s role in the franchise might have changed in the sequel.
Scream 7's Opening Kill Scene Can Eliminate The Biggest New Character Problem
Sam or tara being sidney prescott's replacement, sidney’s role as the franchise heroine could have gone to either scream reboot star..
Scream 7 could have transformed Sam and Tara into vigilantes like Scream 2022's Sidney, seeking out Ghostface instead of the killer hunting them down. One major trend in recent slasher franchise reboots is a tendency to transform reluctant, accidental Final Girls like Halloween ’s Laurie Strode, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre ’s Sally Hardesty, or Scream ’s original heroine Sidney into hardened, self-aware action heroines. Scream 7 could have revitalized Sam and Tara’s roles by making them proactive killer hunters, but the sequel’s failure to hold on to their actors makes this promising potential twist impossible.
Sam's Potential To Be Scream 7’s Ghostface
The scream reboot heroine's killer instinct seemed likely to turn on her eventually..
Both Scream 2022 and Scream VI used Sam’s visions of Billy Loomis to imply that she might be the killer, only for both movies to later reveal that this was a red herring. While it seems obvious that the franchise’s new leading lady wouldn’t be its surprise killer, the Scream series pulled off this exact twist before when 2011’s Scream 4 revealed that Emma Roberts’s Jill was its villain, not its hero. However, despite all the reasons why Sam could be Scream 7 's Ghostface , now that she won’t appear in the sequel, the foreshadowing in earlier sequels has been rendered pointless.
Tara & Chad’s Relationship
This promising pairing from scream vi is now effectively over..
In Scream VI , Mason Gooding’s charming Chad begins a tentative relationship with the commitment-phobic Tara. This seemed like a rehash of Scream 2 ’s doomed Sidney romance and, indeed, Chad soon found himself on the business end of a hunting knife. However, Chad somehow survived his brutal stabbing and was in a stable condition by Scream VI ’s ending. This means the relationship between him and Tara might have amounted to something more substantial if the series had continued to follow the story of Jenna Ortega’s character.
Christina Carpenter’s Scream Franchise Story
Tara and sam’s mother will now never be explained..
Billy Loomis was revealed to be Sam’s father early in Scream 2022, adding further fuel to the fan theories about a potential villainous turn. However, neither the reboot nor its sequel ever explained much about Tara and Sam’s mother, Christina Carpenter. Scream VI shut down theories about Sam and Tara's mother when the pair said that she was no longer very involved in their lives, but her intimate connection to Billy remained a pretty major plot point. As such, it is unlikely that Scream 7 would have wholly ignored Christina, particularly when her return could have facilitated the comeback of Scream ’s original villain, Stu Macher.
Sam & Danny's Relationship
Sam’s red-herring boyfriend from scream vi won’t be explained in scream 7 ..
Josh Segarra’s Danny was introduced in Scream VI and immediately became an obvious suspect due to his dour demeanor and unknown background. However, Danny turned out to be a red herring when Scream VI ’s ending revealed that its family of killers was all related to one of Scream 2022’s villains. This left his relationship with Sam in a strange place. On the one hand, they could have grown closer after the sequel’s ending, since Sam somehow managed to form a connection with Danny while being stalked by killers. On the other hand, Danny could reasonably decide to end things since his girlfriend's sister openly suspected him of murder.
Sam & Tara's Possible Return To Woodsboro
The scream heroines have no reason to return to the franchise’s original setting..
While Scream VI leaving Woodsboro was a surprise, this didn’t hurt the sequel’s reception. Since New York City proved unsafe for the Carpenter sisters, the next sequel could reasonably have seen Sam and Tara contend with whether to move home and confront their demons. However, Scream 7 can’t follow this story anymore since Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega's characters won’t be returning to the franchise.

Pure Good Proposal: Danny Brackett
- 1 What’s the Work?
- 2 Who is he?
- 3 What has he done?
- 4 Corrupting factors
- 5.1 Final verdict
What’s the Work? [ ]
The scream franchise is a series of 6 movies that mainly focus on a woman named Sidney Prescott, and focus on a woman named Sam Carpenter in scream 5-6. It is about serial killers known as ghostface who wear a black robe and ghost mask to disguise themselves. They also use a voice modulator to disguise their voice because they also call people usually before killing them. Scream VI (the one Danny appears in) is a sequel to scream 2022 where Sam, Tara, Chad and Mindy have moved to College in New York and then 3 more killers (Wayne, Quinn and Ethan) start a killing spree.
Who is he? [ ]
Danny Brackett is a supporting character in Scream VI. He is secretly in a relationship with Sam Carpenter. He is always protective of her throughout the movie. Sam wants to trust him but she somewhat has trust issues after her previous boyfriend becoming ghostface.
What has he done? [ ]
When he sees ghostface in Quinn’s room, supposedly attacking her, he warns everyone about him. He tries to call Sam which she declines, but then sends a message to Sam, Tara, Mindy and Chad. When Sam, Mindy and Anika are trapped in Quinn’s room with the window being the only other way out which has to big of a drop below it, and ghostface is on the other side of the door, Danny gets out a ladder for them to use as a bridge to get from their apartment to his. Sam and Mindy make it to the other side but Anika gets thrown off the ladder when ghostface manages to get through and throw her off. So Danny saved Sam and Mindy’s lives and almost saved Anika’s.
On the subway when he was with Sam, he saw a guy dressed up as ghostface who started moving towards them. He got the in the way of him to Sam to protect Sam from him until he realises it was just a guy dressed up as ghostface for Halloween since the guy walks out of the train.
When Sam asks him not to come into the theatre with them because Sam is not entirely sure if she should trust him, Danny says he will stay out. But he eventually returns with reinforcements. Danny said he thought Sam might need some reinforcements to keep her safe. Even if this was after the killers were defeated, Danny wasn’t sure they were defeated so he got some reinforcement cops just to keep Sam safe.
Corrupting factors [ ]
Well I don’t think he really has any corrupting factors at all, he doesn’t blame Sam for not entirely trusting him, he isn’t jerkish, arrogant or lethal or anything like that. He is a very polite character.
Admirable Standard [ ]
So he’s definitely one of the less Admirable characters but he didn’t have many resources since he only appears in Scream VI and doesn’t have a lot of screen time. He also doesn’t really have any proper encounters with ghostface which limits his ability to save people from ghostface. Let’s compare him to the other major heroes.
Sidney , Gale and Dewey : Obviously he has less resources than these guys since Sidney and Dewey appeared in 5 movies and Gale appears in all 6. They were also the main characters and had way more screen time and Danny only appears in Scream VI.
Sam and Tara : Appeared in both Scream 2022 and Scream VI and were the 2 main characters of both of those movies and still had more screen time than Danny.
I would even say he has less resources than Chad and Mindy who were arguably even less admirable than Danny. I would say Danny could stand out for using a risky but smart technique to save Sam and Mindy by using a ladder as a bridge for them to get to his apartment to save them from ghostface.
Final verdict [ ]
I think could qualify for using a ladder to save Sam and Mindy and always protecting Sam.
