My motive isn't as '90s as Mickey's. Mine is just good old-fashioned revenge. You killed my son! And, now, I kill you and I can't think of anything more rational.
~ Nancy Loomis to Sidney Prescott.

Nancy Loomis is the main antagonist of Scream 2, the second installment of the Scream movie franchise.

She poses as a local reporter under the alias of Debbie Salt to seek revenge against those responsible for killing her son, Billy, and she is also the second archenemy of Sidney Prescott. Nancy revealed to Sidney Prescott that she orchestrated the second killing spree with Mickey Altieri.

She was portrayed by Laurie Metcalf. While in-disguise, she is voiced by Roger L. Jackson, and in-costume scenes were portrayed by Chris Doyle, Allen Robinson, and Kurt Bryant.



Nancy abandoned her son after her husband cheated on her with Maureen Prescott, Sidney's mother. In revenge, Billy and Stu killed Maureen, framed Cotton Weary and one year later attacked Sidney, only to be ultimately defeated by Sidney and her friends.

Nancy is stricken with grief and remorse after she heard about her son's death. She became completely enraged and had a makeover and met Mickey Altieri on a killer website. He has agreed to copycat the original Woodsboro murders in exchange for guidance, tuition expenses and to become famous.

Scream 2

Two years later after the events of Scream, A copycat killer murders a couple in a movie theatre during a premiere of "Stab". A movie based on Billy and Stu's murders, and Sidney became famous and was in College with Randy, her new boyfriend Derek and new friends Hallie and Mickey. Nancy poses as "Debbie Salt", a reporter who bothers Gale Weathers a lot. She showed to be just a normal reporter who is a big fan of Gale's story on the Woodsboro killings, and later arrived at the crime scene of Cici's death, trying to talk to Gale again but refused to talk to her.

Later, Nancy did the Ghostface act on Randy, Gale and Dewey. As Randy tries to distract the killer by talking to Nancy on the phone while Dewey and Gale try to find the killer. Nancy tries to hurt Randy's feeling telling him that Sidney will never go out with him. But Randy twists her insults towards her and argues with Nancy as he insults her about how much of a pathetic loser momma's boy Billy was, which enraged Nancy to the point of brutally murdering Randy.

After Randy's death, Gale was more determined to stop the killer than doing a book about it, as Nancy tries to talk to Gale again, Gale tells her off.

Later after Hallie and Derek were murdered by the revealed killer Mickey Altieri who became a killer for a fun and game of becoming just as famous as Billy, after a fight Mickey reveals his partner, who Sidney recognizes her to be "Mrs. Loomis" Billy's mother who abandoned him after that incident with Maureen Prescott. She has Gale hostage pointing a gun at her after Gale tried to call the police after thinking Cotton Weary was the murderer.

Mickey reveals that she hired him to help him pay for his tuition fees in exchange for his killings, showing that Nancy is the cause of the second killing spree. But eventually Nancy betrays Mickey as he is no longer a use to her plans anymore as she shoots him, presumed dead as Mickey shoots Gale as she collapses to the bottom of the stage, presumed dead also.

As she and Sidney finally come face to face towards each other, with Nancy pointing gun at Sidney and tells Sidney that her killing spree wasn't all fun and games at all, it was all a plan to get revenge on Sidney for killing Billy and frame her for her and Mickey's crimes. As Sidney tells her she won't get away with it, Nancy foolishly begs to differ wiping off the fingerprints off one the guns and asks Sidney any comments or comebacks if she's covered everything and Sidney insults her, telling Nancy that she is just as crazy and pathetic as Billy was, as she threats Sidney how it didn't go well for Randy when he insulted her about Billy.

As Sidney and Nancy argue, Sidney fights back, escaping backstage as she uses the stage props and controls to scare Nancy, as the stage crashes down on her. Then Nancy gets back up in pain and a fit of desperate rage trying to kill Sidney with a knife and just as Sidney sees the gun next her and tries to reach it, Nancy gets very desperate to kill Sidney, scared that Sidney will succeed and just then Cotton intervenes pointing a gun at both of them. While she holds her hostage, Nancy desperately tries to convince Cotton that Sidney needs to die, for she wrongly accused Cotton who had to spend 1 year in jail. Believed she had convinced Cotton to kill Sidney, but after Sidney said she will do the interview, Nancy's smile turns into a satisfying frown, knowing that Cotten knew she was lying and realizing she's doomed as Cotton shoots Nancy in the neck.

Afterwards, Cotton tells Sidney he'd never hurt her, as Gale is shown to be alive, Mickey pops up for one last scare as Sidney and Gale shoot him over a dozen times, as Mickey is finally done for. Sidney then turns towards Nancy's body and shoots her lethally in the head, exclaiming it was 'just in case'. Putting an end to her pathetic life and second killing spree.


  1. Randy Meeks - Stabbed four times in chest, throat slit in news van.

Speculated Victims

  1. Phil Stevens - Stabbed in the ear through bathroom stall.
  2. Cici Cooper - Thrown through glass door, stabbed twice in the back, thrown off a balcony.


  • Nancy suffered heavily from denial. She was unwilling to believe or accept that her absence was a factor in Billy going insane; or that Sidney only "murdered" him purely in self-defense as Billy had become a serial killer.
  • Nancy was described as "a flashy woman - all hair and teeth, thick sunglasses" in the original script. The character became more unassuming in the final version.
  • Her cover story changed from being a Newsweek reporter to working for a local paper.
  • Her motives match that of Pamela Voorhees' from the original Friday the 13th. Pamela was mentioned by Ghostface in Scream, and by Randy in Scream 2.
  • Nancy was the first Ghostface who betrayed her accomplice. In her defense, Mickey is well-established to be the worse of the duo and was just as willing to betray her as the other way around.
  • Despite her intelligence, Nancy was very foolish to betray Mickey, thinking she can defeat Sidney and her friends and get away with it alone, and when she desperately tries to convince Cotton to kill Sidney for getting him arrested, she was too much of a fool not knowing or accepting that it was Billy's fault for getting Cotton arrested in the first place, not Sidney.
  • Nancy stabs Randy to death left-handed. This is another clue to her agenda in framing Mickey and escaping, as Mickey himself is left-handed, connecting him to the crime (and is mentioned as left-handed in a deleted scene). Even something as trivial as to the hand used to stab victims, which is noticed in an autopsy.
  • Nancy was born in 1955 and was killed in 1998, making her the oldest Ghostface Killer thus far, being 43 years old at the time of her death.
