Well.. personally i myself haven’t seen anything much of the second season (apart from Clips in the season 2 playlist) , and i did hear from fans saying that they were getting bored during some earlier episodes of Season 2… but despite the ‘Floundering’ description i heard as the episodes went on, it seems that MTV and Dimension TV have decided to make another season.. Fans already have a Halloween Special coming very soon as it is, and i thought that it would probably finish itself off during its duration, but now you know different… Popular Website ‘Bloody-Disgusting.com’ posted up an article today.. Click banner above for the FULL read! (The Halloween Special Trailer is below)
From Bloody-Disgusting ( WARNING: If you haven’t had chance to see ANY of Season 2 yet then AVOID the article as it contains MAJOR SPOILERS!! )
In advance of the 2-hour “Scream” Halloween Special airing Tuesday, October 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, MTV and Dimension TV have renewed “Scream” for a third season with a nice and clean six-episode order, Bloody Disgusting learned. There are no further details on showrunners, casting, location or production start date at this time.

Well, finally i can give all the UK fans the same news as the USA fans have had for a couple of weeks…. The Silver GhostFace Masks are now IN STOCK on the MadboutHorror.co.uk Website!!
After a long struggle of trying to obtain these the UK fans can now finally see their Pre-Order paying off… Literally!! If you have Pre-Ordered one from them, then you may have to check your inbox for a notification of payment being due, in which they will then send your brand new Anniversary mask to you ASAP..

Well, this may differ from the normal news category of a New mask or News on a Scream 5 or even an announcement from RJ Torbert, but that doesn’t mean that THIS post is any the less interesting..
We have a MEGA fan of GhostFace here.. Adam Turner, who collects many horror masks and GhostFace is just part of his large collection… He made a Video covering his GhostFace masks back at the end of September in 2015.. and now, he has returned with another.. I wanted to add his clips on here in the hope that many other fans can enjoy the viewing of lots of types of masks as used throughout the Scream Movies life and beyond.. He has some very nice masks and replicas, and even has a couple of ‘Public Enemy Studios’ custom GhostFace Robes.. Both clips are below.. Enjoy… And THANKS for the shout-out in the second video Adam.. Much appreciated..
Well, as Halloween nears again fans have been commenting about the new ’25 Year GhostFace mask’.. as in, WHERE IS IT??? WHERE IS IT BEING SOLD?! I cant find it on Costume sites!!
Well, it seems that the fact of the mask being more of a Collector’s Piece has put off some retailers, which is daft really because with it being made ONLY in 2016 you would think that fans would be looking for this all over the place, but the normal sellers actually DONT have it ordered.. which has made some fans worry about HOW and WHERE they can get it.. Well, dont worry, because theres some Answers here..
So, where or how can fans in different countries obtain a mask? … See Below..
USA fans can find the Masks in…
Savers (Also Metallics will be in there)
And also contact ‘ Erwin Distributing ‘ Who may be able to tell you more info
Palmer Agencies based in Belfast are the main UK Distributor, Info could be gotten from them maybe.
Places I KNOW THAT WILL have them are…
MadaboutHorror.co.uk (Linked on the ‘Links’ and ‘Costumes’ Page here)
On the costumes pages you will see images that link to ALL Scream/GhostFace items they sell.. (Always being added to)
The ‘Costumes’ page DOES HAVE an image link there to PRE ORDER the Silver 25 Year Mask (Deposit of £5 Required)
MadaboutHorror.co.uk WILL SHIP TO USA FANS IF NEED BE… But you have to take into account that in some cases the postage may cost more than the mask purchase itself !
Karnival House Costumes.. (Also linked to on the same pages, although NO PRE ORDER links are on the site over there yet??)
Any Australian Fans?
Well you can find out more info on the availability of the Silver mask via CostumeBox Website im told.
(There is NO item listed as of yet, but i suggest to contact them anyway and see what info they have)
I recently made a quick video below.. that covers this topic/article
UPDATE: Many fans have been to ‘Savers/Value Village’ Stores and NOT SEEN the Silver Chrome mask displayed… I have been told to advise fans to ASK FOR THE MASK, as it may not be out on display yet..
I STRONGLY advise that you CALL the nearest store to you first and save yourself the fuel if the Silver Masks are not there for whatever reason.. Question it first.. Then go in if you get the answer you want.
Also.. Regarding Goodwill’ Stores… Some fans tell me that their ‘Goodwill’ is actually a THRIFT STORE.. so will they have the masks? Answer: Not sure.. all i can advise is to maybe contact your local store first and ask if that mask is on the way in to the stores stock, or even out on display somewhere..
When i first put this article up some fans questioned about ‘Goodwill’ stores having the Silver masks, because they thought the store only sold donated items, i then contacted RJ Torbert and he told me that the store chain had been purchasing many a Fun World product for years… so there you have it.. NOT only a store that sells donated items only.. they do sell NEW merchandise too.
Hello again, today we see a new video appear online which features RJ Torbert talking about his new novel, ‘NO MERCY’… in this clip we RJ talking whilst at Z Pita, we even see Joey Z himself appear and even RJ’s Wife, Roseann… Check it out below!

For a while now i have known loads of Scream and GhostFace fans because we all come to the internet to show our love of the films and general topic, and whatever else that is linked.. for instance.. Filming locations… for a while now, fan ‘Zachary Cook’ has been wanting to see his favourite location, the Casey Becker house, or in real life, ‘7420 Sonoma Mountain Road’.. ever since filming commenced and completed the access has been VERY limited, (and who can blame them, as its still a family home in reality isn’t it! ) … well, now the property is up for sale.. (Got 7 Million Dollars handy?!) and Zach has been online on and off seeking information… so below here i post info from Zach himself.. he wrote his own story below, and has provided many links and even found a YouTube video showing some of us fans what the house is REALLY like!! Its really nice to finally be able to see this place again after all those years ago when AND WHERE, it made its big screen appearance! Can you believe it was only built in 1994 !!!?
The House That Eluded Me… Until Now!
By: Zachary Cook
Wes Craven was THE master of Horror. I don’t think many people would attempt to argue that point. He had a keen eye for what would make people jump, or what would make the back of your neck burn with fear. That feeling that someone is watching you is something that we all have a natural sense for, and Craven knew how to exploit that as well… with a house.
A few years ago. I attempted to raise funds for a documentary project which would have included the many different locations used in the “Scream” film series. It would have included a detailed look into each and every locations little nuances that would have never been seen otherwise. It was also planned to do the documentary in a ‘sub style’ in which we could have replicated each shot of the movie, but with just the locations as the stand today. I really wanted this to have cast and crew interviews as well, and to be narrated by Roger Jackson, the voice of GhostFace! With that said, the project failed to find the necessary funds and with the decline of the popularity of Scream and the passing of Wes Craven, it’s unlikely at this point that I will continue to pursue this project. Though, never say never.
During the time I was researching each location that was used in all the films, I found it hard to gather much info on my favorite location of all… the Casey Becker house. It’s the home used in the opening scene of the first movie where actor Drew Barrymore and crew spent the first 3 very cold nights of filming what would be the kick in the ass that slasher films needed. The location scout James Marlowe probably found a few good homes in the same area that seemed to fit the build of the script. What he may not have expected is what Wes Craven would do to them, and how he would utilize the house itself, as a character. Casey Becker was caught in this fishbowl with the killer lurking on the outside looking in, watching her every move. But it was the one location I couldn’t find any information on at all. No pictures, very dodgy satellite images and no names of the owners, even though it was the same owners since the home was built. Sure, I could have dug deeper, been a bit more annoying, but I was just trying to do what I could with my computer and the good old internet. All I really had, was the address.
About 4 years ago, the house used in the final act (the one belonging to character Stu Macher) of the film was for sale, it went in the neighborhood of about $4million USD. That might sound like a lot but considering how much land that house has, the size of it, and the fact it’s in one of the most desirable locations in Northern California, that’s actually quite cheap. Not to mention, its in an iconic slasher film for the entire final 40 minutes of the film. It was exciting to see it, to finally get pictures that were recent of the entire property, inside and out. But still, of all the locations, my favorite one still eluded me.
Prior to about 6 months ago, I had given up. Our project to film the locations had failed to be funded, Wes Craven passed away and I finally gave up collecting and sold about 80% of my entire collection, only keeping the posters and a few other things. We moved far from where we once were and that was that. Then one day, I was watching “Scream” and I was trying to explain to my girlfriend about the house in the opening scene. So I pulled up the address and did a Google search to show her where it is on the map. But then I noticed a listing on a real estate website with the same address. My heart sank as I was sure I must have mistyped the address, there was no possible way that the owners were selling the house after 20+ years of living there. Was this the moment I finally would see the Casey Becker house in more detail? My girlfriend was wondering why my jaw was on the ground as I slowly clicked the link.
As the page loaded, I saw the front of the home with a new perspective for the first time in almost 20 years since “Scream” had wrapped filming. I couldn’t even click to see the next picture that came after at first because I was so shocked. I was just trying to soak it all in and observe that first new picture probably any of us “Scream Fans” had seen ever. I quickly went back and opened up all the links I could with that house for sale to find the original Realtor person that posted it and contacted them. Out of the few replies I got from them, I was unable to gain any more info than what was already provided on the listing, but it was fine, I finally had the pictures that showed this house in so much more detail than I could have ever imagined. I right clicked and saved every single picture and kept quiet about what I’d discovered in fear that some fans may try to contact the Realtor with even more questions. Questions that I wasn’t even getting a reply to, nor was fellow “Scream Fan” Ashley Lampton of the Drewseum. (Somehow I think she knew about it before me).
Neither of us were successful in getting any solid replies so we gave up. Not long after, the listings were all removed, along with the pictures that went with them. Again, I was in the dark, thinking I got just enough of a peek into my favorite house in the series to make my life complete. The listing was somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 Million USD. (See, I told you the other house was cheap by comparison) To me, this house was worth every penny and then some. It revitalized Drew Barrymore and Wes Craven’s career and launched writer Kevin Williamson and composer Marco Beltrami into new heights. All was fine again, until now.
The house was out to haunt me some more. I was going to send the pictures I had found to my super close friend Tim Wagstaff (the man who runs this site) and let him have at it. I pulled up the address one more time to see if I could find a decent satellite image that may have been updated since I first looked all those years ago, but then, there it was. The listing was back up, except this time, with more pictures from that same photoshoot of the original listing, and, (I cant believe I’m about to type this) the drone video. I’ve never cried before just by looking at aerial drone footage of anything, but this was all it took. Someone thought it was a good idea (and it was) to take a drone and film the land and house from up above. The same thing that I wanted to do nearly 4 years ago for a failed project and a wishful dream of mine. I finally got to see the pictures and footage of the house that scared the hell out of me as a kid. In a film that helped to me become more knowledgeable in filmmaking, collecting and of all things, music. It caused me to end up here sitting outside in this 97 degree Florida sun typing this on my break while attending college at Full Sail University for a Recording Arts bachelor degree.
You might think it’s “just a house”, but to me, its more than that. Maybe it’s more than that to other people as well. I certainly think that the filmmakers, the home owners and the fans looked to the final scene house as iconic, but this one is a bit more special than that for me.
So here it is, the footage, and the pictures. Enjoy.

Well, on July 16th at the Port Jefferson Free Library RJ Torbert had another event in relation to his new novel ‘No Mercy’.. last time he was there was back in October 2013.. along with two other authors.. This time around, it was John Valeri (aka The Hartford Books Examiner) .. John had some Questions lined up.. and RJ also had something to announce regarding a third story and it also had Wes Cravens input…
Needless to say the ‘announcement’ as it was, is referring to something happening with Wes and GhostFace, and Wes had gotten pictures of whatever it was that had happened.. Wes had then urged RJ to ‘use it’ in future… While i was at the 2013 event, i wasn’t at this one, sadly… but it sounds as though it was similar to the 2013 event, posing for pictures, taking questions from audience members.. and one young fan even gaining a NEW SILVER 25 YEAR GHOSTFACE MASK..
Mr John Valeri and RJ had managed to add pictures of the event online, some of which are below.. (look out for RJ and Kevin Cronin, a real retired cop, who plays a main part of the first and second book)..
As it was John Valeri who hosted this Q&A event, he has put an online article up.. and its an enjoyable read.. CLICK HERE TO READ IT!
