July 21st 2016: RJ Torbert’s Q&A at the Port Jefferson Library

nomercybanner2016wpWell, 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!

Seller’s Estimate: USD 8,000 – 12,000

1374. Screen used Ghostface mask from Scream. (Dimension Films, 1996) Mask of the iconic Ghostface killer created by Wes Craven, inspired by artist Edvard Munch’s painting “The Scream.” Crafted of rubber with sewn-on cowl of black cloth. Measures 12 in. Comes with a signed LOA by Bill Perry, former Webmaster for Wes Craven’s official website, who obtained the mask for promotional purposes immediately after filming wrapped. In the letter, Perry states in part: “Tony Cecere, stunt coordinator on the film, pointed out several modifications done to the mask and identified it as one of the masks worn by a stuntman on the film. Very few people are aware that Ghostface is played largely by stuntmen, using actors mainly for the ‘reveal’ scenes at the end of the film. This particular mask has the eye hole refitted with a broader mesh so the stunt players could see better…” Ghostface masks from the first Scream film are rarely encountered. In fine condition. $8,000 – $12,000

June 19th 2016: Kevin Williamson refers to Scream 5..

kwscream5notneededwpIm going back in time a little here with referring to a news article back in January of this year.. but it seems a Scream 5 was more of a non starter for quite a while now, yet some fans seem to still hope for it.
Back in 2010 after Scream 4 was moving along nicely there was plenty of talk (also in 2008 too) about Kevin writing a new trilogy.. Sadly with Scream 4 not doing as hoped for by many of us at the box office we never got a Scream 5, and ended up with only a dodgy crappy TV series instead.. Which is typical really.. anyway..  Back in January (2016) Kevin spoke up again about his thoughts on it, and also briefly mentions Wes Craven too.. Kevin talked to the LATimes and spoke about many things, he also attended a Q&A at a screening celebrating the 20th anniversary of SCREAM… along with Matthew Lillard.

So, to all fans out there that continue to ask about ‘Scream 5’… we now know the answer… it seems likely that this one wont ever happen, yes it was the same with Scream 4… but with the original plans of a new trilogy squashed sometime ago now, and the recent loss of Mr Craven.. we have to say .. Why? .. because Wes and Kevin were two very important elements in the genius mesh that made these films go so well in their structure and production.. Kevin wasn’t as involved as we would have hoped with Scream 4, and i think it shows in the final movie too, just as we did with Scream 3 back in 1999/2000. Where as SCREAM 1 & 2 were more High quality because they were both fully involved in the creative process.

The FULL article can be read by clicking the banner above..

“I know I don’t lean into it or seek it out the way I used to,” he says.

Craven died August 2015 of brain cancer.

“That hit hard,” says Williamson. “You think of your own mortality and your own life. He was such a generous, sweet man, and it all began with him. He was so graceful and generous with me, the way he let me in, in a way in which other directors have never let me in.”

With a “Scream” TV series going into its second season this April on MTV, could the film series go on without Craven?

In 2010, as “Scream 4” was in development with Williamson writing once again, ideas were swirling for fifth and sixth films in the series. The potential of those concepts, however, never came to fruition. Now Williamson gently brushes away the idea of making another film.

“With Wes gone,” he muses, “do we need a ‘Scream 5’?

“The film is so beautiful where it is in my life. I don’t feel the need to go there again.”

 


June 1st 2016: GhostFace.co.uk returns in a newer format!

gfpoweredbywpWell, after the last 2-3 weeks being up at all hours most nights i finally managed to get the site ready for visitors here… then disaster struck, ALL the effort of making a new site seemed to be for nothing, because last night the site went down, during the ‘WordPress Migration/Transfer’ process it all went wrong! After talking to the host support it re-appeared again, but it wasn’t located correctly in the files..  it was still in a sub folder!  Support comes back and says ‘ok, wait a minute while i change it’! then almost everything got worse. The theme vanished, images went out of sync and stopped working, then the main domain just started showing a blank page!  So… What now.. ?  Put the old version back? .. Give up??  or just pay a ridiculous fee for specialists to revive it.. ??    NO, NO, and NO!!   Find an old Ghost Hunting friend, ‘Paul Griffiths’ (www.Betelguise.com} … a  hell of a web designer and a man of many talents with code and fixing sites that look dead! He was here for a couple of hours or so and got the site back to standard.. he then left me to it, and i finished it off!!  MASSIVE THANKS PAUL!!!    So, finally we are here, in WordPress format, and working ok so far.. i think..

So from now on, the site will now have the ability for users to share the news posts.. along with many other things.. the mask page has been changed a little with some new images, as have all the pages..
Theres more to come to finish it off properly, but at least i managed to preserve all of my older news archives from around late 2011.. older posts do exist on older web pages on my PC, but i think we have enough archives so far… I hope site visitors enjoy the newer version here..

The site sits in a theme by a site called ‘Iceable Themes‘ although i have heavily modified it so it doesn’t look too much like the standard WP Layout look..
The chap over there gave me many additional codes to get the site how i wanted it.. THANKS .. (if he does see this).

Thats it for now..
Thanks

Tim (GhostFace)


May 9th 2016: RJ’s NEW BOOK ANNOUNCED !!!

nomercyrjannouncedwpFor quite a while now RJ Torbert has been writing various tweets about the next Powers and Johnson novel, and saying that long time GhostFace fan ‘Rob Mac‘ was going to be announcing it.. Today, we saw that happen… Rob was given the honor of doing the announcement by RJ and Rob was definitely surprised when he was first told, here were all are now.. months later and the day is here.. You can find out more on how to obtain a new book on the link below..

AMAZON.COM LINK – ‘BOOK ORDERS LINK

Book synopsis
NO MERCY: A Powers and Johnson Novel is the continuing story of two detectives, who with the help of their boss, Det Lt Cronin, solved The Face of Fear Investigation (from Torbert’s first book The Face of Fear).

As with anything in life, there are repercussions with the way we handle “life” and the way the law is interpreted. There is a difference between the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. There are those who do not forget and want revenge. Therefore, when it comes to revenge, there is NO MERCY.

A plot to eliminate the Priority 1 Task Force has been planned by placing bounties on those who were involved in The Face of Fear Investigation. Powers and Johnson are on the case to find out who is behind the revenge. 

Ghost Face has his own plans for revenge, and is also showing NO MERCY.

I must say…. Jace Lash did another Excellent job on the Art work again!

See the official Powers&Johnson site also..
