November 15th 2014: SCREAM TV series - Mask Changes... Evolved Mask appearing.....
Here we are again... this time with yet more news (Via Bloody disgusting.com / InsideTV-EW.com) in relation to the upcoming SCREAM TV Series by MTV.... in recent time we all learned that GhostFace would not be Primarily involved with the project, but wasnt totally ruled out from making a possible appearance in the future... and now.. well MTV's senior vice president Mina Lefevre has said there will be a different version of a mask used... more below...
For the FULL article click the banner above and it will take you to Bloody Disgusting.com...
“It’s a darker, almost more grounded, evolved version of the mask,” says Mina Lefevre, MTV’s senior vice president and head of scripted development. “It’s something we’re constantly talking about. How did that mask become that mask? What’s its purpose? How did it evolve? If the Scream movie mask was the more plastic version, for a lack of a better description, this one is a more organic looking and frankly darker version.”
Lefevre—who insists not using Ghostface had nothing to do with rights issues— promises that the spirit of Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven’s films are intact. “Scream was incredibly iconic, but we wanted to reinvent that for TV while of course keeping all the main elements that made it so iconic, including a mask, but also the soapy teen stories, pop culture humor, the scares and the killer,” she says. “We’re tonally walking that line, yet delivering the scares in a significant way. The mask was a big discussion creatively. We wanted to get a nod and a wink to what the original was, but we definitely wanted to make it more on par with what horror is now, which is darker.”
As a major fan of GhostFace (as im sure my site shows) i am not impressed by the news frankly... like RJ said in the headline below... SCREAM is GhostFace... and GhostFace is SCREAM... my opinion at this time is that it may already be ruined, and dead and buried before its even started... Changing one of the main factors that helped SCREAM get its main killer face and overall appearance isnt good... when the pilot show does eventually air in the UK i WILL give it a chance to see how it looks, but with the recent news of no GhostFace and the mask changes im not getting excited about it... i hope it doesnt ruin or damage the SCREAM origins... Many fans have said they would prefer a SCREAM 5 to this... also many say if theres no GhostFace then why bother at all??!! Time will tell..
October 3rd 2014: Q & A with RJ Torbert.... MTV SERIES, GhostFace masks Availability...
Hello, as Halloween slowly approaches i have had the chance to speak with RJ Torbert via E mail on a couple of occasions, and of course the question of GhostFace being involved on the MTV SCREAM series was arisen too...
RJ answers many questions below...
One of which starts us off here and was asked by myself on Twitter...
R.J. there has been much speculation, about the MTV series, SCREAM, the question remains, is GHOST FACE® involved in the series?
To answer your question regarding the SCREAM T.V. SERIES. Please note, that I had been in communication with TWC regarding this and they have informed me, that as of now, and during the initial launch that GHOST FACE® is not involved in the new format. They also indicated that because of this direction, it does not mean, that Ghost Face® will not be involved at a later date. So, there is still a question , to the question. However, as of now, there is no involvement.
I’m telling you now, as we get closer to Halloween, because of the many inquiries, we have had from our RETAILERS, as well as the FANS from all over the world. In addition, -------we have received pretty harsh notes, some addressed specifically to me, implying that Fun World and/or me, is responsible for the SERIES not having GHOST FACE® ----------nothing could be further from the truth. We believe , SCREAM is GHOST FACE, and GHOST FACE® is Scream. However, while GHOST FACE® is owned by Fun World, The Scream Motion Picture Franchise is owned by The Weinstein Company and it is their option to Film a movie or T.V. SHOW without GHOST FACE®.
Regardless, we wish them the best of luck and I’m sure SCREAM FANS will check out the series. Who knows what will happen in the future regarding the series and Ghost Face®. Never say Never.
Q-- Have you found many knock offs of GHOST FACE this Halloween?
A-- This year, we have stopped many shipments on the knock offs, -----our worldwide copyright and trademark now recognized around the world has made it easier , however, its time consuming . It continues to amaze me how companies and people continue to try and knock it off. Not only , the copyright, but our TRADEMARK, -------------we have and will continue to be diligent in enforcing our rights. I must also give credit to the followers on twitter, and thank them as well for sending knock offs to me, at FUN WORLD. Their loyalty and support has been terrific, and I (WE) at FUN World appreciate it.
Q-- You have donated a ONE OF A KIND GHOST FACE mask to raise money for a charity in the U.K. can you give us some background on it?
A-- A COUPLE years ago, when FUN WORLD was going to celebrate fifty years of being in business. I experimented with having special MASKS made, ---------one of them was the WHITE MASK with the GOLD SHROUD, and ONE OF THEM was trying to do a GOLD FACE with a gold shroud. I wasn’t satisfied with the result, of how the gold shroud looked, so I did not move forward with it. However, as a result , both of them are 1 of a kind. I hope something good happens, and money is raised for a good cause.
Q-- YOU recently made a statement on twitter about a new figure coming out from FUNKO, and that it was not the one we thought of. Can you explain
A-- There are some who received figures from FUNKO from the U.K. and I wanted to be sure, they did nt think it was those figures, ----------My twitter followers, are quite perceptive, and smart, so I do have to clarify sometimes, that I may know what they are thinking, LOL—
Q-- You continue to be available via twitter to your followers—Im sure it is appreciated by most.
A-- I continue to be amazed by the loyalty , interest, and the support from my twitter followers, many of them are incredible, loving, people who have dreams, and I try to be encouraging to them, as a way to show my appreciation to them. I will always do my very best to show that appreciation. I have met many of them throughout the country and world as I travel and I have enjoyed every minute of it. Sometimes, it is impossible to meet everyone due to schedules, but I think most of them know the effort is there!
Q-- What’s next in the world of Movies for FUN WORLD?
A-- Horrible Bosses 2 with JENNIFER ANNISTON AND JASON BATEMAN, ----------our skelebones boy mask is making a appearance in a bank scene, with the 3main guys, that is very funny. Its due to come out sometime in November.
Q-- How is THE FACE OF FEAR doing, and when is the sequel due out?
A-- I’m pleased with the performance of THE FACE OF FEAR--------and those who have read a advance copy of the manuscript for the sequel have either liked it very much or loved it, so I’m enthusiastic over the release of it, sometime in late may or early June of 2015
Q-- Is there a meaning to the GHOST FACE being left handed both on the Registered Logo and in your book?
A-- This question has been raised a few times. –I’m left handed, and took liberty on making him left handed, both on the logo and in the book. While I wanted to do it, --------if you look closely at the logo, myself being left handed aside, I think the logo looks better with his left arm coming over the F . It balances out the logo. I looked carefully at the logo with a right handed Ghost Face and it looked odd to me. I think it flows better and looks better to the eye this way. I feel a bit of a “closer” connection to it as well. (smile)
Q-- last question, are you working on any projects we don’t know about?
A-- Yes, (laughing)
So , there we have it for now... now you know what to expect in the upcoming TV series, at the time of speaking to RJ via E mail i asked about the availability of GhostFace masks this year as i saw many a fan on social media saying there was not as many masks about compared to last year and previous years, something that rings true in the UK too, because ASDA stores who normally have the Glow types in stock have NOTHING at all this year..
So below is a list of places where you can find GhostFace this year.. mainly in the USA, or a couple online...
GHOST FACE® is available, in MASKS//COSTUMES, and /or Accessories in the following stores---there are too many stores to list, but these are the biggest supporters
SAVERS -----------(EXCLUSIVE METALIC MASKS--- AND OTHER REGULAR MASKS)
GAGS AND GAMES (INCLUDING THE NEW FADE IN FADE OUT GHOST FACE MASK
PARTY CITY (INCLUDING THE NEW FADE IN FADE OUT GHOST FACE MASK
IN ADDITION, OVER A HUNDRED SMALL SPECIALTY CHAINS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

But what about this Flesh Coloured GhostFace mask?? Well, to help raise money as always RJ Torbert has sent over a special mask very similar to the Gold hooded mask as seen on the Masks page, both masks have back stories, and RJ promises to share the story of the Gold Hooded Flesh colour mask pretty soon.. this particular mask WILL be placed in an online auction to raise money for Charity...

August 19th 2014: The Face of Fear - Signed book for sale - Various Tidbits..
Its been a slow couple of months since the last video i added on here, various small tidbits popping up in regards to the SCREAM TV series, cast news, crew mentions, and others talking about what is coming in the future.. while it may give us fans something to think about we still dont have the news as to whether GhostFace will be involved.
Many fans were wondering what will happen if the mask isnt approved for use.. others saying it would have to be involved for it to carry the name SCREAM in the title... Myself?.... well, im not sure, i dont always think that franchises can always do both sides of TV and films... things like Star Trek, then yes, Police Academy, then maybe... Even the old Disney Herbie films had a TV series that was short lived but is still watchable... With SCREAM... i dont think it will be the same, especially as Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson arent anywhere to be seen.. well not in a direct capacity like the first two films.... Time will tell... I only hope it doesnt mark the SCREAM name, because if it does then a SCREAM 5 is most likely a 'Big No No' as Randy would say... not that its not the same now...
The Face of Fear - Signed book
Back in May of this year i did a charity Ghost hunt (Listed further down the page) with Dean Maynard.. at that time we had things to auction off to try and help get a bigger sum of money raised, we have a signed book or two around and currently one sits on Ebay.. as signed by RJ Torbert himself.. Click the link on the top banner here for the auction...
RARE GhostFace mask coming soon for auction...
I can only say a few things on this at this time... a rare (1 of 1) GhostFace mask is going to be coming soon for auction, with the word 'rare' being involved i may put a reserve on the mask at the time of going online, as i dont want it being wasted on someone who only wants to pay a low amount on it... i will say that i have never seen a mask like it in all of Ghostface's life, and i hope fans like what they see come the time of showing pictures.. More soon on this.. keep an eye on this page..
Thanks to 'Joshie B' ... Another Domain added here..
Fan of SCREAM and Ghostface made a generous contribution a short while back to this site in the form of another domain name, if you were to type in your browsers... www.Ghostface.us then it will come back to this site..
THANKS VERY MUCH Mr Josh... Much appreciated.. I would have put something up sooner but its been busy over here with other things lately..
GhostFace, Michael Myers and The Fisherman will be in force on Halloween.
Yes, after the Charity Ghost Hunt was successful back in May we now have another Halloween event going on back at the Darlington Civic Theatre, and again its that Dean Maynard thats behind it..
More to come on this in the very near future...

Atlanta - Casting Attractive, Young Actors for MTV TV Show Pilot “Scream”
Project: TV Show Pilot “Scream” | SAG-AFTRA
Shoot Date(s): June 4th
Pay Rate: TBD
Story Line: At the start of the pilot, we learn that a YouTube video has gone viral, which has adverse repercussions for Audrey. This video is the seeming catalyst for a murder and opens up a window to the town’s troubled past…
Our agency is currently submitting experienced actors (all ethnicities) to audition for the following role(s):
[WILL BELMONT] 18+ to play 16, tall, very attractive, athletic, a good kid. Will’s a high school basketball player who wants to get a basketball scholarship to college. Will loves his girlfriend, Emma (fka Harper)…SERIES REGULAR
[KIERAN WILCOX] MALE. 18+ to play 16, smoking hot, with intense eyes and smoldering appeal, smart, wry, a bit more mature than his peers, Kieran is the new kid at school who has moved here because his mother and stepdad died in a car accident three weeks ago. He is somewhat reluctantly forced to live with his dad—who is Sheriff Hudson..SERIES REGULAR
[BROOKE MADDOX] Female, 18+ to play 16, gorgeous, the high gloss queen bee who thinks she’s nice and the world’s just reading her wrong, capable of being bubbly and seemingly-genuine and also capable of being ferociously sexy, Brooke is the leader of the popular girls, but she’s not technically a mean girl. The daughter of a very wealthy family, Brooke’s achievements include ballet, horseback riding and world travel…SERIES REGULAR
[SHERIFF CLARK HUDSON] MALE. 40s, handsome, smart, compassionate. Sheriff Hudson is a good man and a good sheriff, who doesn’t go with the easy answers. He’s kind and empathetic when he has to deal with a young person who’s been traumatized, but he’s clearly not going to stop till he finds the truth…SERIES REGULAR
[JAKE FITZGERALD] 18+ to play 16, handsome, athletic, Jake is Will’s well-muscled wing man, who’s also on the basketball team. Jake has a wry humor which can turn crass sometimes; he’s got a crush on Brooke but seems to take her careless rejection of him in stride. Jake likes to play pranks, especially when he’s at a party and drinking too much, but it’s possible that one of Jake’s “pranks” went too far…RECURRING GUEST STAR.
[RILEY MARRA] Female, 18+ to play 16, a gorgeous “ditz” who may be deeper, smarter and have more eclectic interests than is first apparent, Riley is a member in good standing of the popular group that includes Brooke, Will, Emma and Jake. Unlike the classic popular kids, Riley doesn’t mind going beyond the clique if she finds someone whom she connects with…RECURRING GUEST STAR.
April 15th 2014: SCREAM 5 Dead?!
For a long time there has been the odd chatter about the SCREAM TV series, and even less chat about SCREAM 5, in recent time Neve Campbell appeared in TV series 'Mad Men' and recently answered questions from 'The Daily Beast' about it, in those questions SCREAM 5 was mentioned, as far as Neve is concerned, she thinks its DEAD at this time...
Part of the interview below.. Click banner for full article! (Credit to Rodrigo of 'HelloSidney.com' for the article)
I grew up with a lot of your films, and movies like Scream still hold up so well. Have you ever received a bad prank phone call?
No, I haven’t! I haven’t, weirdly. I unfortunately had some stalkers during that time but no weird prank calls. Although Halloween is always fun because I’ll be at the door handing out candy and someone will come by in a Scream mask. It’s just an easy costume, now. I’ll just be Ghostface!
Are we going to see another Scream film?
I don’t think we’ll see it again. I know they’re doing a TV show for MTV that I just read about, but originally they’d talked about Scream 4 being the beginning of another trilogy, but once we made it, it was such a challenge to do a good job with it, give the audience what they wanted, have it be fresh, and have it still retain the elements from the older movies people loved so much. I think we did a good job with it, but I don’t know if you can do it again and again and again. We’d be pushing it. So I think they’re smart with just doing a TV show and leaving it alone.
April 15th 2013: A NEW Fan film - SCREAM Italian Tribute

See what you think!

Here we are now in 2014 and again we see Dean doing yet another Charity Ghost Hunt, this time at the Darlington Civic Theatre... Details below... from Dean...
On Friday May 9th, paranormal investigator Dean 'Midas' Maynard will host a 'Scream' style charity ghost-hunt at the Darlington Civic Theatre in the UK with all proceeds going to St Teresa's Hospice.

Dean has also been sent a Scream mask (picture attached) from America via GhostFace.co.uk, that has been personally signed by Wes Craven, the director of all four Scream films and the upcoming new Scream MTV series.

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 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!
