So, here we are then, Still here still after 7 years online! ...
hard to believe that after all that time we have seen a new movie come and go, and nothing but rumours surface every now and again for a SCREAM TV series...
also in the last few months we have seen Halloween come and go yet again which is sometimes my favourite time of year as its not as over-hyped as Christmas.. plus it means more chance of GhostFace merchandise popping up, old and new.. as in lucky finds in stores or new mask types.
New York & Port Jefferson (Long Island)
This year also saw a personal 'First' for me as it was my time to head 'Over the pond' so to speak, and head to NYC, and it was a damn nice trip to be honest, we saw quite a bit to say we only had seven nights there, followed after that by another 4 nights in Port Jefferson, in that time there i got to meet RJ Torbert and get a tour of the town regarding locations as used in his book 'The Face of Fear' and have a tour round other locations used just outside of PJ too, so we got to see what life was ike on the American roads too. After the tour i was honored to receive an invite to Fun World, to see the offices and building as a whole and even meet some staff there too, its a big place where there is much going on, and i was walking round with RJ being told information about areas and what they are used for etc.. it seemed like a dream.. Some may recall a picture i added onto the mask page temporarily of the Gold GhostFace bust, thats actually bigger than i thought it would be too.
Whilst in Port Jefferson also i did meet Joey Z who owns 'Z Pita' and most of the staff, who were ALL very friendly and always smiling and happy to be there, in the front entrance is RJ's book sitting proudly greeting everyone as they arrive and even the staff have polo shirts with Ghostface printed on there and the book title with some blood.. i did manage to get a picture too of those. When it came to the end of the holiday it was a sad time as we had to go away from the place we had grown to love with the city and PJ, finally i could walk round various shops and come across GhostFace masks and other merchandise, and be on the same island as Fun World and also be minutes away from RJ's favourite place to be, and for many others i think too as the locals of PJ we did meet said people would get the ferry to PJ on weekends and other holiday times because it was such a nice place. and i can vouch for that now too.
Fun World Mask in New Movie?
Well, another recent piece of news is that Fun World were in talks with Warner Bros about the use of a mask in an upcoming film, Twitter user and GhostFace fan 'Josh b' guessed correct that the movie 'Horrible Bosses 2' would be the movie to feature the mask, what mask? Well we font know yet, RJ Torbert will be updating us all soon hopefully via twitter.. Watch this space basically!
Recent tweet from RJ below..
As @Paradox_2015 guessed,FUN WORLD 2 have Mask in HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 w/Jennifer Anniston sched 4 FALL 2014 twitter followers will B 1st 2 C
With regards to the site as always it will be here, and hopefully will always be here as long as fans keep viewing it, one of the most common questions lately via the e mails here are WHERE to get a REAL Genuine Fun World GhostFace mask, some of these come from fans from all over the world that dont always have the easy access to stores who have lots of GhostFace stock or maybe not even a fancy dress/costume shop closeby.. Normally i recommend Ebay and sites like it to get a mask (As some would have seen on the newer mask page) but these days not everyone always has, or has access to an ebay account, so with this in mind i have put forward an idea to help fans get the REAL DEAL GhostFace masks from this site, but at this time i am in progress with an enquiry about that and hope to do a good thing at the same time by putting the site to further good use with regards to helping out a charity. More on this will hopefully come soon. Another thing to stay tuned on here and to again, Watch this space!
So for now, i say Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all who visit here!
Stay safe, keep the drinking to a sensible level and have a good holiday with family and friends!

October 2nd 2013: Small Scream 5 Update (UPDATED)
When it comes to news on Scream 5 it has been basically unheard of for a while, last thing i remember was seeing Kevin Williamson tweet about having a script completed yet nobody wanted it he said..
The latest we hear now is that Harvey Weinstein is pressing his brother Bob to get Scream 5 made so it can be ended once and for all, so cancel out all hopes for a second trilogy, there wont be a Scream 6!
Text below is from Indiewire.com - FULL ARTICLE here..
He's urging his brother to make "Scream 5" happen.
Weinstein said that he's urging his brother Bob, who heads Dimension Films, to make "Scream 5" happen. "Everyone lived in ‘Scream 4," he said. "I'm begging him to do the movie and just end it. We've milked that cow." (UPDATED October 4th) From ok, to worse...
I was (as a Scream and Ghostface fan) willing to give a TV series at least a 'Look-in' when the time came for its debut on the small screens, but now a new recent development has popped up which just makes it too daft to believe or add into the series... It seems that a 'Super Natrual' element will exist in the show.. My God, what next?... the ONLY good thing is that it seems the films and series wont be directly linked or overlapped..
Bloody Disgusting have a report online HERE...
(Rodrigo Kurtz of HelloSidney.com posted the news via twitter originally, thanks to him for alerting us all)
Weinstein told the Zurich Film Festival audience that there’s no overlap between the series and film franchise, adding that the series “is supposed to represent a new beginning and also pursue a supernatural direction.”
August 20th 2013: Ghostface Metallic Mask's are back for 2013
Well, here we are again, with only just over 10 weeks to go before Halloween creeps up on us, in recent days i thought of E mailing an old friend in Canada who i have been in touch with since 2011, Reg' at the Nova Scotia branch of Value Village/savers has beaten me to it..... An E mail came today saying he had been unboxing stock and came across the regular colours of Metallic GhostFace mask's... Green, Blue and Purple, but no Red ones.
As of last year Reg did ask me what colours of mask are rare or not seen so much anymore and i referred to the other two colours the mask's have been seen in, which in the past were a Silver and Vibrant Red mask.
At this time Reg is still going through his stock for this year
and has said he will keep me updated to see if any other colours show up for the Metallic's... He will also keep me up to date as to what other GhostFace merchandise he has too.
If any fans reading this are saying to themselves.. 'Where do i get Metallic masks then?' then E mail the address here... email@example.com and im sure they will help you no problem.. There are small fees for paperwork and processing etc.. also postage.
NEW INFO UPDATE: Savers' was the only company to order the Metallic's this year, a total of 4,000 were made.
Also the only colours out this year are Blue, Green, and Purple... no more Red/Orange masks..

April 26th 2013: SCREAM TV series comes up again...
Hello, a while back now all of us SCREAM fans saw some news in relation to a SCREAM TV series..
Fan's Richie and Josh had sent a tweet to me saying to get online, and as soon as i did i saw this nasty news..
Why nasty?? because normally when things go through the Movie-TV conversion it isnt always good..
I REALLY hope that if something does happen then it is done right, but i must say that me and others arent happy about this at this time.. Articles exist on the net now and im sure it will keep appearing on other sites as you read this..
Hollywood Reporter and NY Times already have articles up!!
Produced with Dimension Films, MTV is currently in search of writers for the one-hour project while Scream director Wes Craven is in discussions to direct the pilot. Should Scream receive a series order, it would be slated for a summer 2014 launch and would join current scripted offerings Teen Wolf (also adapted from a film franchise) and Awkward.

March 13th 2013: Wes has a chat..
Here we are again, in a similar position to a last year.. NOTHING on a SCREAM 5 and a Scream TV show mentioned again which is NOT what the majorority of fans want according to my poll on the forum.. anyway, Wes was recently at the SXSW film festival mainly for his comic book project with Steve Niles.. Whilst there he chatted with many including JoBlo.com... Click Banner for FULL article in which Scream 5 is mentioned.
News headline was alerted to me by R.Suttles whilst on Skype!
March 9th 2013: Fun world in ST.Louis
While checking Facebook i saw that Easter Unlimited inc/Fun World had posted up a video that featured the GhostFace® mask and a chap called Phil Talio who is a Sales manager for Fun World.. Watch the Video by clicking the banner for the FULL article! GhostFace® appears at the one minute mark. the video was embedded here but sat in an unchangable size, it also completely BLANKED this headline and the text and banner and the video wouldnt show on iPhone devices.. So it has been removed off here. The video works fine on the other site itself though.
February 28th 2013: GhostFace Project finally revealed!
Well, after a long time of seeing mysterious tweets, and thinking and thinking, 'What could it be' we have found out via 'Billy' aka Busted815 on Twitter what RJ Torbert has been teasing us with for the last couple of years..
The final outcome?! A novel by Mr Torbert himself based in the village of Port Jefferson,
Ghost Face returns as you have never seen or read before. The village of Port Jefferson, Long Island, NY is rocked by a kidnapping on the Cross Island Ferry that leads to a series of murders that adds to the mystery. Detectives Powers and Johnson, led by Detective Lieutenant Cronin, are pressured by national media, the FBI, and the public to solve the related cases before more lives are lost. Things become tense as the Detectives' personal lives become complicated as the mystery unwinds in the case that would become known as "The Face of Fear."
The new project has a permanent place now here too, you can view more info by clicking 'The Face of Fear' link above, a new site also was created for the novel which is also linked on the new page, as well as a facebook page.
The Face of Fear now has a 'Support/Fan' Twitter account in use, to help promote the book more! Click HERE!
Thanks to Buster aka Billy for doing the announcement and now its noted in Ghostface history, and noted on the 'Project' page..
January 19th 2013: Fun World turns 50! Expo show pics..
1963!! I wasnt even thought of.. even my mum was only 8 years old! , but at that time a company grew from this point, the main man being Stanley Geller.. and here we are 50 years later, Fun World still going good, and they now have 3 generations of family in the staff, Stanley, Allen, and Allen's daughter, Samantha.
Fun World have an interesting history, Read more HERE.
This weekend see's a yearly event come round again, the Halloweeen and Party Expo show, if you find Booth 1817 then you will find Fun World, normally on the biggest plot there.. as always since 2011 RJ has shared pictures with us via Twitter of the setup and other things in photo's.. this year is no different, Pictures below that RJ posted on his Twiitter account.. Happy 50th Anniversary Fun World!
More pictures are also on the Facebook page too!
January 18th 2013: New domain name added onto the site.
After 6 years of online presence now it seems that Ghostface.co.uk is known to many SCREAM and Ghostface® fans, but if you want a worldwide audience to grow surely a '.CO.UK' domain can throw people off slightly thinking its just a small site maybe.. With the intention of getting some more viewers i have recently purchased another add on domain name which now also re-directs to this site.. Anyone looking for the site now can also find this site on the '.com' domain below..
The normal '.co.uk' domain is alive until 2015.. in time i may stick with just the '.com' name in future but for now the site is viewable using both addresses.. Ghostface.co.uk is old and many know the title and will stay online as normal, but it also has sentimental value to me too. In obtaining a new domain i did ask RJ Torbert first about what it should be.. and with the newer trademark being added to Ghostface® in late 2011 i think although its a long name it fits well.
(Ghostface.com) was gone years ago.
January 18th 2013: Old parts of the original SCREAM 3 used for 'The Following'
Hello again, in recent time we have seen Kevin Williamson's new TV series 'The Following' start to appear more on internet and such, whilst many keep calling this the 'other' version of 'SCREAM 5' it appears that it is wrong to say that! In a recent report from EW it seems that 'Following' is in fact a recycled version of SCREAM 3 that Williamson had about. Williamson had wanted to do 'Following' since SCREAM times..
Click Banner for FULL article..
"In my original story for Scream 3 [Ehren Kruger was brought in to write the threequel after Williamson exited], the killers were basically a fanclub of Woodsboro kids that had formed because of Stab 1 and Stab 2," he tells me. "They were all doing the killings and the big surprise of the movie was when Sidney walked into the house after Ghostface had killed everyone ... and they all rose up. None of them were actually dead and they'd planned the whole thing."
