Well, Here we are again… now in 2020!!! In 2011 we had a Tagline saying ‘New Decade New Rules.’… In this case, its more like, New Decade, New GhostFace…
As always Fun World have attended the Halloween Expo Show at New Orleans, an event which happens every year, either in January or February, this time it ran from January 17th-19th.
This is always anticipated by fans who normally get to see online images posted, either by RJ Torbert, or other fans who manage to attend, but it is not a public event, its trade only!
Even so, this opportunity gives the fans a first glance at what is due to come in the following Halloween season, last year we saw the reintroduction of the Fluorescent’s (Green, Pink and Orange) as last seen in the very late 90’s, and we also had Metallics back again, along with the EL GhostFace and also a selection of other masks that included Scary Movie types…
This year however we seem to have much less, The Devil Face has returned (After being discontinued before) and this is due to the masks popularity in the #DeadByDaylight game, and sadly we seem to have lost the Fluorescent’s, AND Metallic’s !!! No sign of them anywhere.
There was another new type though, one that on first glance made fans think it was the 25th Anniversary mask again, but then when you looked closely it was similar, but different, this time with a rainbow reflective finish, which has been named (According to Frank McGovern- Fun World Designer) the ‘Oil Slick’ GhostFace mask… Frank did add some pictures for us all to see, but it looks really bare compared to previous years when seeing the selection as a whole.
Pictures that surfaced are below.. Picture Credit : Frank McGovern
So… its that time of year again, which is basically Fun World’s time to shine and rent the biggest booth at the New Orleans Halloween Party Expo show, most of the time we see RJ Torbert snap various images of the booths construction phases and also pics of many of the ranges whether its GhostFace or something from other licences they may have got… But in the past we have also seen pictures from fans who have been to the show, last year Louise from the MadaboutHorror website attended, and a year or so previous a brother of a known GhostFace collector (Alex Jones) was sent images to share of what i believe was Devil Faces first appearance there too… This time, we see Alex’s brother is there again and he has snapped some pictures for us all to see, so full credit to him for sharing…
What remains a mystery this year though is the fact that the Devil Face, Skele Face and the Hard White PU Ghostface masks are missing?!? On one of the pictures we see a hard white PU GhostFace mask but it has the ‘Bib Style’ material on it, thus confirming its still used in costume packages… but none of the plastic assortment are seen here as the normal shrouded masks.. So have they been discontinued??
One other mask that DOES appear in the pictures is the EU Stamp mask, although no fans ( That i know of ) found it last year it is still seen at the show.. so WHERE do we find it as fans for sale this year?? Hopefully we may find some eventually..
The last piece of news here is from RJ Torbert, i spoke to him twice recently on the phone and he confirmed that the Metallic Masks WILL BE part of the normal mask lines from now on, so ALL retailers can order these again and they are no longer an EXCLUSIVE type… so USA fans may be able to find these again this year in many retail stores… Images below, Thanks to RJ for the new Metallics picture, and Thanks to Alex Jones and his brother for sharing the expo show pictures…
Well, here we go again, after 12 years im still here with this site, and whilst all may have been quiet lately on the site there have been things happening in the SCREAM & GhostFace world!
Earlier in the year we had news of a new GhostFace mask coming ( EL GhostFace – AKA Illumo GhostFace ) , on its arrival it had mixed reviews from fans and was smaller than i thought it would be, but i myself liked it..
A ‘first’ for the UK in 2018 also saw the Metallic’s return, which has not happened in a hell of a long time, and many UK fans had the chance to buy masks via this very website! , which was another ‘first’ as i had never bought a small stock of masks before for the purpose of helping fans out if they couldn’t get any… (Although in 2017 i did manage to find a few Devil Face masks and send a few to USA fans) , also making a return to 2018 stock was the Hard PU Plastic masks assortment, ( Devil Face, Skele Face, and the White GhostFace ) Ultra Whites were a plenty as usual, some in the USA seeing the amended Header Tag now say the older ‘ASIS’ text thus replacing the SCRE4M Branding from previous years… this was also present on the EL GhostFace header tags and also the 2018 Metallics… Another small fact with the Metallics was that the ‘Savers’ stores had cancelled their order for 2018 as apparently sales were down in years previous??!!?! Which i found hard to believe… Ultra whites UK Stock didn’t have the amended header tags with the older ‘ASIS’ this time around but i hope come October 2019 that we may see that change too.. On a sad note though NO GhostFace fans cam e across ANY EU Stamped 2018 masks!! I REALLY hope these have NOT stopped production now…
illumo GhostFace (OFF)
GhostFace ‘Hard PU Plastic’
Devil Face (Returning again)
Skele Face (Returning again)
June 2018 – More GhostFace enamel pins from Cavity Colors..
Yes, after the original GhostFace pin set did well, we also got a GhostFace carver’ pin, with all stock selling out Cavity Colors they then had another 2 versions of pins made, these were the STAB MOTION enamel pins, one version simply being the white mask, and another which was VERY limited, (ONLY 50 MADE) … which was a red mask, which also sold out in seconds!!! Eventually both types did sell out, but they had some more White mask types done, sadly there will be no more Red types!!
Well, this was all go wasn’t it!!!… it was cast, locations confirmed, casting calls also went out for extras, then it was filmed, and then wrapped!!! Twitter was alive with new info all the time from new cast members and then all of a sudden it went quiet, news broke of TWC troubles, and ever since we have had little info regarding what is happening, small rumours had popped up stating that names would be removed from the credits and then it went silent… many fans have asked RJ Torbert as to what is going on and RJ has little info for us too… we can only assume that talks may be going on in the background and hopefully one day us SCREAM and GhostFace fans may get the chance to see what the finished product came out like, remember, the REAL GhostFace mask returns this time, along with his PROPER voice Roger L Jackson!!
SCREAM Comes Home – Fan Event – October 2018 – By Anthony Masi and Nate Ragon
Whilst i didn’t attend this event ( i couldn’t afford it ) it definitely seemed everyone who did attend it had a hell of a good time, there were talks from extras in the movie in a big barn, rooms available to stay in actually IN STUS HOUSE, and also places to stay in other outbuildings on the property, there were goody bags which included a limited run of special Ultra White masks, and a locations tour around the fictional Woodsboro including the fountain, police station, shop where Sidney and Tatum talk, among others, another nice addition came in the form of a location video from ‘Adam the Woo’ or ‘TheDailyWoo‘ which gives us a very nice tour of Stu’s House, and even briefly driving there… Also, only recently, ‘January 4th’ via Facebook , Superfan Nate Ragon stated that some BIG NEWS was on the way regarding the SCREAM World, whether thats in regards to maybe going to Stu’s House again, or something totally different we dont know, we will be awaiting is announcement… See Adams Video below.
Many Thanks to Anthony Masi who gave me permission to use the group photo below!!
UPDATE: January 7th 2019 – Nate Ragon’s announcement was that fans who missed or couldn’t attend the SCREAM COMES HOME event now have another chance to see Stu’s house, see the new WEEKENDATSCENE118 Website for more details!!
As usual Fun World will be in attendance at the Halloween and Party Expo Show in New Orleans, which runs from January 25th – 27th.. as usual it looks like Fun World has the largest booth again.. SEE HERE
A small rumour popped up via a facebook page for Fun World last year responding to a fan who had asked if coloured GhostFace were ever going to return, Fun World stated that ‘they would return next season, as in 2019’!!! So, Fluorescent’s may be returning to our lists of mask wants next year!! ( It is believed that the original colours of Pink, Green and Orange will be back, TBC )
Well, thats it for now, the only other small bit of info is that the very highly visited ‘Masks’ page here is undergoing a slow revamp yet again, many fans have sent images of many early masks and it is still undergoing alterations at this time, needless to say it will feature a lot more info on the earlier mask types as well as amendments to other sections like Metallics and HHN types to list a couple..
Well, here we are again, but this time we have information for a one of a kind event thats going on in October of this year!
SuperFan Nate Ragon and Anthony Masi (Still Screaming Documentary) have got together and come up with a special event to be held at STU’S HOUSE!! YOU CAN ACTUALLY SPEND THE NIGHT THERE!
As with many things these days there is a cost to this special event and people always seem to use Kickstarter to try and fund their project.. Below is the video Nate and Anthony have got online and it explains about the night in question! Click the main image above to go to the Kickstarter page and get pledging! It looks like this offer WONT BE REPEATED!!
Well, Its that time of year again.. January, which means for Fun World that its a busy time, in part due to the Halloween Party Expo Show which they have attended for a long time, and every time they go they have the biggest booth! RJ Torbert always takes a few pictures and shares them as the show progresses… some are below.. Whilst GhostFace does appear it wasn’t until someone posted on a Scream & GhostFace collectors group that i saw some different GhostFace merchandise, as well as a couple of other related ‘FACE’ named items… ‘Skele-Face’ and ‘Devil Face’… (Although the Red ‘Devil Face’ GhostFace Mask IS in one of RJ’s Pictures) Fan ‘Alex Jones’ posted a picture up that his brother had sent to him who was attending the event.. We see a Red Devil GhostFace, and the Skele-Face.. Pictured below…

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!
You can see the original article on the Fios1 News page by clicking the banner!
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!
