Troubling new evidence has emerged in the scandal surrounding Fairfax film critic Jim Schembri's infamous Scream 4 spoiler, with secret internal documents contradicting the scribe's official explanation for the snafu.

In a prominent piece written by Schembri for last Friday's Age Insight section titled "How I punk'd the Twitterverse", the buff claimed he'd penned two versions of his review to execute a deliberate ruse -- one without a spoiler for the print edition of The Age's EG filed on Wednesday, April 13 and another version -- revealing the killer -- that would appear on the web and cause a commotion before being replaced.
