Ghostface’s Killer Franchise & New Film Additions 

As the leaves start to change colors, so do bright summer colors, and out comes the browns and blacks as the Halloween season gets into full swing. Father Death, as Ghostface is called in the film, is back with a vengeance. As the famous masked voiced character would call people right before they meet their DOOM! The masked figure would show up to carry out his plan of elimination of the individual who was called. Ring… Ring… Don’t pick up the phone. Scary right? This character roamed the streets and took out his victims one by one while hiding his true identity and voice via the phone. When Ghostface called, the victims didn’t believe him at first. How could they with some many spammers and scammers call our phones every day? This led to their demise.

The Beginning of Ghostface

Ghostface’s Mask Backstory

You never see the villain with his mask off in the films. The mask is iconic and recognized right away partly, because of this fact. Tobert, the co-creator, of the Ghostface mask took many tries at creating the famous Ghostface (Scream) mask. Many days passed and finally came across the perfect scary mask for the film. The mask has many influences around the world that led to its choice for the original motion picture. The design of the mask bears reference to Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream and itGhost Face Scream Mask with Knife became one of the most iconic movie masks of all time! Many fans flocked to the theater and the film was an instant success.

For 25 years horror fans have revisited the fan-favorite film that started the successful franchise. The Ghostface mask is called “The Peanut-Eyed Ghost.” Torbert felt it looked like a “ghost in pain, believing it to be a unique design. You can almost see the pain Ghostface felt, taking it out on innocent folks around the town.” It’s very evil and overwhelms its victims. It’s iconic in its own way and has many fans dressing up year after year as the iconic scary villain. 25 years later, there are many different variations of the class Ghostface mask from the Classic Bleeding Ghostface Mask, Zombie Ghostface Mask Scream, and Ghostface Fade in and Out Mask.

Ghostface’s Dark Cloak Backstory

Ghostface or “Father Death” as the full costume was called and sold is one of the most famous horror film costumes. The black long cloak itself had to be custom handmade for the Scream horror film, as the Father Death outfit identified in Scream as that of the killers did not really exist; the peanut-eyed mask was sold only as a stand-alone item. The cloak entered quickly into retail markets only following the release of Scream 25 years ago. The long back cloak mirrored what one might see a grim reaper wearing. Some fans wear the Midnight Cloak Adult Reversible Cape to replicate the original cloak look. 

Ghostface’s Prop Knife Backstory

The Bloody Buck 120 “Hunting Knife” Prop, as used by Ghostface in Scream Movie, is the most common/signature weapon used by Ghostface to either harm or kill his/her victims. The Buck 120 was developed by Buck in the 1960s but was discontinued around 1992 due to complaints by hunters that the blade length was excessive. Ghostface uses a modified Buck 120, which is a common eight-inch hunting knife that is used as the main weapon by Ghostface. The knives used in the film series are made of aluminum with solid wood handles or metallic painted rubber blades with rubber handles, although there are prop knives that use retractable blades. In Scream 4, however, they used CGI to make the knife appear as if it was going into flesh via Scream Fandom. Knife apparel such as the Scream Knife T-Shirt is really popular as well. Ghostface’s knife evolved over the years into the very popular Ghostface 15-Inch Bloody Butcher Knife. You’ll want to get your hands on these Knives to complete your Halloween look for Ghostface.
