It seems like a simple question: What makes Ghostface so scary?
Well, several people who really should know give their answers in a featurette dropped this week in anticipation of the debut of the new Scream Jan. 14, 2022. Check out the video below, courtesy of movieweb.com, as well a slew of Ghostface-themed posters that show the ensemble cast with the frightening white mask.
It was just last week that similar images of the franchise’s Big Three–Neve Campbell as Sidney Prescott, Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers and David Arquette as Dewey Riley–were posted here in Horror News Network.
The other nine characters now have their moment with the Ghostface mask: Marley Shelton as Judy Hicks, Melissa Barrera as Sam Carpenter, Mason Gooding as Chad Meeks-Martin, Mikey Madison as Amber Freeman, Dylan Minnette as Wes Hicks, Jenna Ortega as Tara Carpenter, Jack Quaid as Richie Kirsch, Jasmin Savoy Brown as Mindy Meeks-Martin and Sonia Ammar as Liv McKenzie.
This R-rated Scream–directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillette from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick–takes place 25 years after those memorable murders stunned Woodsboro. And now, “a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past.”
The original 1996 Scream–directed by Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson–follows high school student Prescott as she is stalked by the terrifying Ghostface. The first film grossed $173 million on a $15-million budget, and jumpstarted a film franchise that has–to date–raked in more than $600 million worldwide.
