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..
Hello once again, im here to just inform you of what we can expect in 2018’s GhostFace mask selection, Last year we saw new masks arrive in the form of Devil Face, Skele-Face, and also a Newer version GhostFace mask which was a ‘Hard PU Plastic’ mask, (as were the devil face and skele-face’) but we also got a much brighter shade of Green on the Metallic GhostFace mask, and we did see the ever popular ‘EU Stamped’ Masks pop up again, which was a relief because ever since after 2011 i have struggled to find those types, i was told by RJ Torbert that the mold is still used, but not in as higher numbers as we used to see, in 2017 they popped up from a German supplier, and also a couple surfaced in the USA via a Pharmacy store chain called Freds’ .. they were part of a selection box of masks which also included a couple of the Scary Movie mask types… So , if you are still struggling to find the EU stamped masks in the USA then maybe search for a ‘Freds Pharmacy’ this Halloween..
So, what do we know about 2018?! .. well so far its just one mask type thats known to be coming, the NEW illumo GhostFace, a mask based off the same mold as the Bleeding types it seems, except these now have added LED Light bars in the face features.. as of now it seems that the eyes and mouth will be lit, although after talking to RJ Torbert it seems that if the factory can get the nose to be lit too then it may be happening, but with the nose being so small compared to the other features its hard to know if its possible to get the light bars to fit in such a small area, so at the time of writing this it could be subject to change.
Another NEW addition for 2018 though, or just new info really, the UK WILL BE GETTING METALLICS THIS YEAR! For the first time in a hell of a long time we will be able to see these in shops and on UK websites! A big relief im sure, as it can be hard to find a trusted USA contact that have a Savers store, or a Unique store, or a Value Village store nearby..
So overall, in the world of GhostFace this year, expect to find, illumo GhostFace, EU Stamped GhostFace, Ultra Whites, Metallics, ‘Hard PU Plastic types, Devil, Skele, GhostFace’ .. of course the Zombie mask and Bleeding types are still produced, yet it seems the Scarecrow has long gone, as has the Re-shoot mold now, or the TD Mold mask, as one of those has not been seen since 2013!
Other types popping up from suppliers Palmers agencies this year in the UK are the ‘Green illuminated’ masks, aka the Fade in and out mask, (Originally released in 2014) and the GhostFace Mummy masks have more recently popped up in the UK, more so from last year, although they seemed to be all 2012 MFG dates present on them.

Hello again… Time goes so quick it seems.. it doesn’t feel like it will be 7 years in April since Scream 4 was released, but it will be. And it also doesn’t feel like 11 years (well, just over) since i started this site.. And every year i put up a summary of the year gone by, and what we have to look forward to in the new year..
In very early 2017 we got the same as we always do get from Fun World/ RJ Torbert, which is normally (depending on show dates) in January in New Orleans, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Fun World always get the biggest booth there and we always see pictures from RJ showing different stages of the booth being built up and then the products being added.. in last years post there were pictures as always yet not a lot of people (including myself) noticed a Devil Face mask sitting to the side of an illuminated Fun World Logo panel.. soon enough another fan who was there ‘Sam Jones’ got some pictures and confirmed what was displayed in the Fun World booth for GhostFace items..(Skele-Face, Devil Face), also including the EU Stamped GhostFace mask which is sadly rarer to find now.. See LINK HERE for original post.
A little later in February we saw more images via Fun worlds website showing the NEW Skele-Face and Devil Face costumes, but at this time we didn’t all know if a White ‘Hard PU Plastic’ GhostFace existed…
We also saw in pictures via MadAboutHorror website, (who attended a Palmers Agencies show in the uk) that a Red Shroud Devil Face mask had been made, yet this was just a couple of Producton samples that Fun World had made, and they only released the normal Black Shroud type for retail.
A little later in February details were released about an accident RJ and his wife had been involved in back in late 2013.. and also he revealed to us something that would be included in his third novel, which was an ‘event’ that actually happened to Wes Craven, Wes had shared the story with RJ and told him to maybe use it for his next book, Details are still unknown in full to the fans, but RJ believes that this is a last gift to fans from Wes, hence why Wes had shared the info..
In this month we got some news that Aaron Crawford who owns the company ‘Cavity Colors‘ were releasing a new set of Enamel GhostFace pins, the final product was very nice and came in a box set of 5 pins, one that glowed in the dark, a STAB green mask with a ‘Stabbing action’ and 3 other types, which were the Bleeding mask, the Silver Chrome 25th Anniversary mask, and the ‘Whassup’ mask type from Scary Movie.. Only 500 box sets were made!
In this month i finally got a short video made showing fans how they could get scuffs and black marks from GhostFace Ultra White masks..
August, September, October, and into 2018..
As soon as August got underway we had masks already going out for sale in the USA, this started off with fans (who were lucky in some cases, as many dont have a Savers or Value Village close-by) finding Metallic GhostFace masks, the same colours as last year, Green, Purple and Blue, but, the Green had changed its tone, now we had a much brighter, almost STAB-Like Green to find, as the Green in previous years had been quite dark and almost looks Black in some lights..
So after fans had been out and about looking for Metallics some had also then started to come across the NEW Devil Face and Skele-Face types, as well as the Hard PU Plastic White GhostFace masks, but again not every fan found it easy to locate some types, in the USA fans struggled to find a Devil Face at all, and it seemed that the UK finally had an advantage for once! Palmers Agencies had ordered Devil Face and gave me a small list of Shops and Websites who had ordered them, in the early stages Websites would sell out overnight and fans would be happy at having all 3 new Plastic masks in their collections.. but with these new masks types being ordered as a selection it lowered the amount of types in each box, most retailers had only order 1 or 2 boxes, which consisted of 2 x Devil Face, 2 x Skele-Face, and 8 x GhostFace, which automatically made the numbers lower on retailers stock of the Devil and Skele Face… After many phone calls and talking again to Palmers Agencies i managed to find more Devil Face masks, (Which seemed to become the most sought after) and i bought as many as i could find, with the intention of letting USA fans buy them from me at uk Retail cost, with ‘Tracked and Signed’ postage added on, many fans took advantage of this and ended up with a Devil Face being added to their collections.. something i had never done on my site before..
Also during the time of Halloween approaching many rare masks seemed to pop up on ebay, including a Pink Fantastic, a Pink FEARSOME! , and many White Fantastics and Fearsomes, also a Production Mask with LOA popped up and was relisted a couple of times, but eventually found a new home…
Later into October we got news of two other things happening, one was the fact that the GhostFace mask WOULD BE returning in Series 3 of the TV Series, which wrapped filming on November 11th…
MTV also put a website online in which fans could share pictures of themselves as GhostFace! SEE HERE!
Also, we had another addition to Cavity Colors Range, in the form of a single Enamel pin, GhostFace carver, in which we see GhostFace doing just tat on a pumpkin! (See recent news)
I also did a couple more ‘firsts’ last Halloween, in the form of Video reviews, one talking about the Latex EU stamped masks and why they are becoming rarer, also the Devil Face and PU Plastic GhostFace get reviewed, and another video covers the Skele-Face mask (as i had not got one at the time of the first video reviews) and also mentions Frank McGovern who was behind the Designs of the GhostFace Zombie, GhostFace Scarecrow, and the Devil Face, and of course, the Skele-Face! See Recent news posts for those!
Well, as far as the site goes, there will be more to come here, it was at the end of November last year in which we reached the 11 year anniversary, and ever since early June 2016 this site has been powered by WordPress, which makes it a lot easier to update and customise, i also noticed it shows a lot more in search results too..
With the expo show coming up again very soon (January 12-15) in New Orleans we should hopefully get a small preview of what may be added to the GhostFace range again, i hope! If anything!
I HAVE been told that the Devil Face and Skele-Face and also the white ‘Hard PU Plastic’ GhostFace will be returning this year, and i have also heard a whisper that Palmers Agencies ‘may’ be getting some Metallic’s this year! Which will be a first’ in a long time! Last time i knew of Metallic’s being for sale in the UK was around 2003!! Time will tell though!
For now though, Dont do Drugs, Dont Have Sex, and Dont ever say ‘You’ll be right back’!
Keep an eye out for the expo show pictures coming very soon… and if you are going to the event then PLEASE get some pictures of GhostFace for us!
Hello again… Here today we just have a new video showing the Devil Face mask and also a White GhostFace mask off the same mask mold.. Basically we see the New Devil Face and White PU Plastic masks are off the same molds as the 25th Silver Chrome Anniversary Masks… also talked about is the EU Stamp Mask, as its getting harder and harder to find now… I will let the video do the rest… see below..
Skele-Face Review… on receiving the new Skele-Face i decided to review that too… See below……
Well… here we are again, Right before the Halloween season gets ‘briefly’ started (In the USA), as for the UK, well its not until at least the end of September that we see Halloween related items over here on display!
Anyway, the main title of this news post was about Devil Face and Skele-Face masks, so, what’s the latest on the Devil Face? or Skele-Face? …
Well anyone who follows my Twitter ‘may’ have seen that i tweeted RJ Torbert about this in late July! I basically asked what was going on with those mask types? Would we be seeing them? and would we see them just this year or again in the future… RJ simply responded saying that they were NOT moving forward with them… the mask type i specifically asked about was Devil Face, but did that mean the Skele-Face was the same?? … I awaited an answer through an email to RJ.. but nothing came straight back… I think he was teasing us, as he likes to with other GhostFace related news in the past and even now still with the cryptic tweets he continues to put up!
Then RJ (in his true style) sent me the below text! TODAY!!!
AND A NUMBER OF INDEPENDENT SPECIALTY STORES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
WILL BE SOLD SEPARATELY AND AS PART OF THE GHOST FACE DELUXE ASSORTMENT
My response to this was good, but the BURNING Question that WOULD come from other fans as well as myself was….
Will the UK STILL GET SOME??? RJ’s answer was… As of now, PALMER AGENCIES will get some, to distribute. They are on twitter.
So, needless to say i have left a message with ‘Palmers Agencies’ to see if we can find out who is going to be getting those masks, as soon as i have a response i will update this post!
THANKS TO RJ TORBERT for giving me this update and letting me be the first to spread the news, many fans saw the tweet (pictured) and was disappointed, and even wondered if Skele-Face was going to be cancelled too… but now you know the latest! They ARE coming!
UPDATE: August 21st 2017: UK Stores that HAVE ORDERED THE SELECTION!!!
UPDATE: October 1st 2017: Most Sites now out of Devil Face, See Below…
BEAR IN MIND THAT THE BOXED SELECTION CONTAINS….
8 X GHOST FACE MASKS
2 X DEVIL FACE MASKS
2 X SKELE FACE MASKS
So you may have to be quick…. Known stores below… CLICK NAMES to go to their websites!
METALLICS! Last night another huge fan of GhostFace (‘Stillscreaminginmichigan’, Tim), decided to head out to his local Savers store and see what was about, he came across, Ultra Whites and NEW METALLICS, just the same as last year, but this time, the Green mask has had a colour change! , Well its shade anyway, now sporting a lovely bright almost STAB-Like GREEN!!!
When asking RJ about the Green Metallic he simply said, ‘Yes, We wanted it brighter‘….
Well… after looking through Fun World’s catalog section on their site i see what it is coming out this year in full (so to speak)… Not only do we get the Masks of the NEW Devil Face and Skele Face, but of course there will be Costume versions too! It also looks like retailers will be able to order a mask box selection, which contain GhostFace masks, Devil Face masks, and the Skele Face mask too… also there in the ‘Accessories’ section are pumpkin carving kits.. Read about more by visiting the Fun World site, Click the banner above!
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…
