In a new interview with Collider, Barrera talked about how gory Scream 6 will be saying, "There was a saying on set because (directors) Matt (Bettinelli-Olpin) and Tyler (Gillett) were always asking for more blood and more sweat. They always just wanted more."

"'More blood spritz' was the saying," she continued, "because they would just always want more. With the last Scream, they were tip-toeing and trying to be very respectful of what the franchise had been, up until that point, and keeping their inner gory dreams at bay. But with this one, they were like, 'We're going all out.' It's potentially a hundred times gorier."

Ortega also said that Scream 6 will be "action-heavy" and "gore-heavy", something that's sure to delight fans of the franchise. While Scream isn't known for its gore per se, the last two entries in the series have echoed the likes of Saw and Final Destination.

Recently, an image from the trailer reportedly leaked online. While it's nothing more than a character ensemble, the chances of Ghostface being among the line-up is pretty high...
