Well, this video came online via Meggy Blaine (A long time fan of Scream and GhostFace) on December 18th 2016… via a tweet she posted… it shows a brilliant collection that’s been built up over many years.. some absolutely gorgeous masks there among other things.. Meggy has some jewels’ in her possession here… including early tagged masks and even a Silver Chrome 25 Year Prototype Mask sent to her by RJ Torbert!
Watch below.. and Enjoy!
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.

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!
Hello all out there!! This is just a quick note for fans to look over if they are considering having RJ Torbert sign a book for them…. ANY fans that want him to sign his first book, or his new second book, or BOTH! Then send your Cheques in to Fun World directly… (see image info) …
Also, from July 17th – August 17th there is a special 1 month promotion on… BOTH books signed and returned to you! TFOF FREE!!!
Well here we are.. its the longest day of the year… June 21st… One of those days that passes so strangely in recent years.. (how is it longer? really?….) but today it marks the OFFICIAL day of release for RJ Torbert’s new novel.. NO MERCY!! For a while now RJ has continued with his personal goals of writing his own books, and this is the second which of course follows on from 2013’s release ‘The Face of Fear’… You can order your own copies by clicking the image below!
For 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..
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..
Well here we are again then… a little late this year on the date but basically the end of November and start of December resemble the birth of GhostFace.co.uk, all that way back in 2006!
Whilst in the later part of November and start of December many see this as the start of Christmas coming, i tend to ignore that now, and see it as my websites birthday more.. I remember when the site was first in existence as a ‘Proboards forum’ (Which is still online) i remember the fans that did visit saying that IF a ‘SCREAM 4’ was made the must-have characters were always to be Sidney, Dewey and Gale.. otherwise there was no point, the other two key factors always mentioned were Wes and Kevin.. and only around a year and a half after going online the announcement came in July 2008 that the film was finally Green-lighted! The rest is history now! So… here we are now.. in 2015.. and still online.. what has 2015 given us ?!! Some good things, and sadly a major bad thing too!
2015 – Good and Bad
Well, with it being 2015 many of us that also like the ‘Back to the Future’ films saw it as a celebration of the dates that Doc and Marty time traveled to in the Delorean all the way back in 1989! And while Hoverboards DO exist in a capacity, its not as expected, or as they were portrayed in the film is it!
But thats life!
With regards to Scream & GhostFace fans we have a sadder reason now for remembering 2015.. Wes… Whilst the movie worlds of Horror and Thrillers (and sometimes romantic stories) suffers a major loss of a great director… a major loss!! In late August we all go the nasty news that he had sadly passed on… and i saw many things online in relation to this sad loss from fans..
Wes Craven – 1939 – 2015 / the man he was..
From the start of Horror movies in my life i always liked Wes’s work.. Mainly because the first film of his i ever saw that was a horror was SCREAM… for years previous i hated Horror, couldn’t stand it one bit.. i remember going round to friends houses in younger years and seeing their older brothers and sisters watching parts of Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees films.. from the very little i could manage to watch (i was only around 7-8 yrs old at the time) i remember thinking that some killers seemed indestructible, no matter what happened to them they kept coming back, and even as a young child then it put me off Horror.. plus it made me paranoid about walking back home at night! So Wes did so his job right in that respect, i only saw about 5 minutes of a Freddy film and i couldn’t take no more.. I still haven’t watched them until this day!
With regards to meeting Wes though i never did sadly.. i have seen many fans post up pictures of themselves with him and reading how they met him, whether it was in an area he was filming, or at the Scream 4 premiere which was good for them too… but the closest i ever got was only via Twitter, he had Followed me in the last year and actually wished me a happy birthday back in June.. I had heard from RJ Torbert recently after i asked RJ about Wes ever viewing my site.. As far as RJ knew he said he had been on the site here.. So i hope he liked what he saw and read..
One thing i did notice about Wes was what the cast members and many others who worked with him said too.. that being that he was REALLY a good man, a nice man, a sweet man, and not the psycho or mad man that people may have thought of him due to his ability to scare us all in his films.. From what i saw in recent years during Scream 4 being made (and on many DVD extras on the Scream movies) it was true, Wes was a genuine nice man, he was someone who had mastered his craft in the movie world, and remained one hell of a man in normal life, his love of birds and other hobbies shown this throughout some of his online media and interviews and even his own website.. I wont forget the presence on Twitter during Scream 4.. many fans were talking to him whilst he was in between working.. pictures of him on his phone tweeting, or playing Doodle Jump!…. i never did beat the score he put up! One thing i always remember though is the pic he posted of a tired GhostFace! In between takes he snapped a picture of ‘Dane Farwell’ as GhostFace sat on a rooftop.. Poor chap looked knackered! | Pictured Below…
I think Wes knew what he wanted when it came to all the Scream films with the portrayal of Ghostface and all the characters we saw… I will always have him to thank AND all others involved in the making of these SCREAM movies.. They gave me a mask and icon i love! Its mostly shown in this site i think..
Rest in peace to Wes though.. i honestly hope we all go somewhere up above after this life, and if we do, i hope to meet him up there..
2015 for Ghostface
Well, as the year started we got yet another type of mask from Alan Geller, the ‘Smoldering / Eerie Embers’ mask… (Now on the masks page too) .. We also saw the return of more Metallic Ghostface masks.. ordered again by the ‘savers’ store chain..
In this year also GhostFace reached a new age, an age of 24, so next year i hope will see some type of anniversary masks i hope.. as 25 is a milestone for any type of mask! Particular one that’s so well known!
Scream Tv Series – July 2015
Well after much discussion online between fans it finally did show its face to us.. literally… The MTV Scream series made it presence known at the start of July and weeks previously in the form of clips posted on YouTube by the MTV account there.. we saw Trailers and a ‘first 8 minutes’ clip debut.. Some fans hated it, some fans loved it, and some didn’t even bother watching it.. I myself wasn’t too keen after seeing a new mask created for it, but true to my word i did eventually watch every episode to give it a fair chance and to get the story completed…
My verdict was that it was ok but it didn’t have the authentic ‘Scream feel’ to it like we saw in the movies.. and that it was a total different world in some ways in ‘Lakewood’.. i do remember though, reading online that TWC wanted to keep the movie world and Tv Series world separate.. so that gave a reason for a new mask creation… at the end of the day i think the SCREAM name maybe helped it get viewers, but in my opinion it could have been named ANYTHING else in relation to Teens, School life, Mass murders, or psycho killers… the fact it was called ‘SCREAM the tv series’ didn’t make much difference to me.. i know of fans from the movies who think of the series as non existent because it doesn’t come close to the quality of the films..
Whilst there is positive and negative points on the series there was a green light for a second series.. time will tell as to what happens and if the ‘Brandon James’ mask reappears…
Arnold Scream – the end of an era.
Well.. as time went on from me creating this site in late 2006 i had always wanted to put my old video footage online for anyone to see… as time went on we had many trailers and fan films go online.. it was originally known between friends in it as ‘Scream filming’ and later got the name of ‘Arnold Scream’ as many of us were from, or lived in Arnold at the time of making the clips, all of the time it was view-able i made it clear that it wasn’t anything serious and was all for fun.. anyone that has seen the films will know this because the acting is bad.. its just friends messing about with a GhostFace mask, thats it..!! The website for the films came along on December 7th 2009… and was there for people to read details and see locations for what we were doing in the films.. the last ever footage i did for the films was back in June 2010.. and since then the site remained online for anyone interested to view.. now though its up for renewal but im letting it go… it was always there for a temporary period anyway, and this year i thought it had been online long enough.. it expired on December 7th 2015 and will no doubt be gone very soon after this post is read by some.. the clips on YouTube will remain (mostly trailers) otherwise its off to the Internet Archive site to view the site in previous years.. I have added a trailer below of the first film which i think sums up the basic description of Arnold Scream.. that being one of friends having fun with GhostFace.. and in this trailer that’s exactly what you see!
Well, that’s it for now… I hope you all have a good Christmas and Happy New Year!
Until January.. See you later!
In a quick E mail to RJ Torbert regarding the upcoming Texas Frightmare Weekend, i asked about the involvement of GhostFace and when the Gold mask pictures will be coming for fans to see.. You have to remember he is a VERY busy man, but he did get back to me as always.. He has been working with Texas Frightmare people on the Poster and T Shirt designs.. what he says is below..
I was approached for permission to use GHOST FACE in both designs, and it was granted, as long as I had final approval, and that a donation was made to one of FUN WORLD charities, Fun World did not accept any money for licensing fees, for either the poster, t shirt, and allowing photos to be taken with Neve Campbell, and SKEET ULRICH,with FANS and the Mask. —this way , fans gain, and so do the charities, in this case THE BROOKE JACKMAN FOUNDATION
RJ assures me that the Gold Mask pictures will be arriving soon.. Only 9 of this type ever made!
Keep an eye on RJ’s Twitter for announcements and pictures..
