Revealing the Mask of Ghostface in Scream 5, which will air in January this month

The fifth film in the slasher Scream franchise is back in theaters. The Scream 5 film directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett is still not separated from the creepy Ghostface mask that is identical to the film.

The creator of the horror film Scream, Kevin Williamson said that the mask called Ghostface is actually a mask that can be found in any store that sells Halloween costumes.


The idea came from Wes Craven, who directed the previous four films. The Ghostface [mask] was in the luggage box in the garage where we were looking for locations,” Kevin Williamson said in an interview with IGN quoted from ScreenRant.

“We asked the owner if we could pick it up because Wes [Craven] saw it and said, ‘This is like the famous Scream painting,'” he continued. The painting The Scream is the work of Norwegian artist, Edvard Munch, in 1893. This popular painting is synonymous with the image of a human being screaming which depicts the anxiety of the human condition.


It is said that the red background of this painting is Munch’s memory of the reddish sky caused by the eruption of Mount Krakatoa in 1883 which had an impact on the whole world until 1884. Back to the Ghostface mask issue. Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven, the directors of four Scream films, then brought the mask to the production team to design the spooky mask.

But the production team’s designs were repeatedly rejected. Finally, Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven decided to use the mask in its original form. “So they’ve made 20 different designs and all of them were rejected by the studio. In the end, we were like, ‘Why don’t we just get the rights to this mask?’,” Williamson said.


“Because in the script, it says it’s a Halloween mask that is sold in stores. That’s how this mask was invented,” he continued. Since then, this white Ghostface mask with a gaping mouth has become an icon of Scream films, starting with the first film that Wes Craven worked on. The Ghostface mask was then worn by assassins targeting young people. The mask serves to hide the identity of the killer by changing the tone of his voice.

The presence of the scary voice must have been followed by screams and screams from the victims who were terrorized. Ghostface masked killer action is also the most anticipated part in the film Scream.


As a result, this mask finally continues to be present in every Scream film. However, the mask underwent minor changes when the film was adapted into a TV series. Meanwhile, in the fifth Scream franchise saga that airs in January 2022, the Ghostface mask once again appears as a tool to cover the identity of the killer.

Not only Ghostface masks, directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett also returned to feature a number of fixed cast members such as Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox.

In addition to the old faces, this film also features many new players, such as Melissa Barrera, Mason Gooding, Jenna Ortega and Jack Quaid. This film has been showing in Indonesian cinemas since Friday, January 14, 2022.
