The Scream star, 32, teased that the upcoming sixth installment in the slasher movie franchise, which is set in New York City, will be "20 times more mortifying" as she spoke to Collider. "It's awful. Because you also see how, in a city like New York City, everyone is kind of doing their own thing and someone is screaming for help, and no one will come to their help," she explained. "No one comes to help them, you know, like, everyone's kind of like, 'I'm not getting into that.' " Melissa Barrera Didn't Tell Her Family or Husband 'Anything' About Her Scream Character's Journey "So it's mortifying, because you're chased by Ghostface, but you also see humanity and how that reacts in a situation like that. Anyway, I think I've already probably said too much," Barrera added.

Samara Weaving, Josh Segarra, Liana Liberato, Tony Revolori and Dermot Mulroney have also joined the cast of the upcoming sequel. Barrera previously told PEOPLE that taking over the final girl reins and starring in Scream was full of "pinch-me moments." "I grew up being obsessed with horror movies in my preteen years. That's when I discovered Scream," Barrera said in March. "I was the friend that no one wanted to invite sleepovers because they knew that I was going to make everyone watch a scary movie."
