Stab is a fictional film-within-a-film, first appearing in Scream 2. The film was based on Gale Weathers' book, The Woodsboro Murders, a sensationalized retelling of the events of the first film. Stab opened April 12, 1998.


In the small California town of Woodsboro, a masked killer known as Ghostface lurks around, stalking co-eds and trying to murder High School student, Sidney Prescott (Tori Spelling) after killing her mother one year ago. Now it's up to Sidney and her friends, along with Deputy Dewey Riley (David Schwimmer) and reporter Gale Weathers (Jennifer Jolie) to find out who the killer is and if Woodsboro will ever be peaceful and quiet again.
