Summary: It's cool to like horror movies. But not so when you take your love, and turn it into a crutch for a murder spree. Such was the actions of many deeply disturbed men and women. All of them out to make martyrs of themselves. All of them united under a common alias: Ghostface.

History: The catalyst for the atrocities of Ghostface can be trailed all the way to Roman Bridger, the half-brother of now expert survivor Sidney Prescott. Roman hated his mom for not being her favorite, and enlisted the help of teenage sociopaths Billy Loomis and Stu Macher to kill her. They did, and they went on to become the first official Ghostfaces. The average Ghostface hides behind a voice modulator, wears the same get-up, and tortures victims with horror trivia and knowledge of clichés before going in for the kill. In the wake of Billy and Stu's collective rampage, other Ghostfaces rose from their legacy. There was the vengeance-seeking Mrs. Loomis, the trial-seeking Mickey Altieri, Roman himself, and the attention hog known as Jill Roberts and her sadistic fake nerd boyfriend Charlie Walker.

Notable Kills: The (admittingly unintended) garage door smash, a knife through someone's ear, a guy getting a giant pipe through the head after a horrific joy ride, a massive gas explosion (that's scope for these guys).

Final Fate: Pretty much every single killer is shot in the head, just to make sure they stay down. The only exception we can name is Stu, who gets a TV dropped on his head to electrocute him.

Powers/Abilities: All Ghostfaces have a voice modulator to conceal their identity. Roman took it a step further with a modulator that could mimic other voices.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-The fact that anyone could be Ghostface is bad enough. But the people who end up being the killer (or killers) are monsters by themselves. Billy and Stu are mindless sociopaths. Mrs. Loomis is Mrs. Vorhees on steroids, Roman is a vile chessmaster, and Jill is literally doing it all for the few gleaming moments of infamy. In short, a killer's deadliest weapon is oftentimes his/her legacy. Oh, and the get-up is creepy too. Got to mention that.

Trivia: -Ghostface's mask is based on the famous Edvard Munch painting from 1893, "The Scream". Three guesses as to why it was chosen.

-In 2015, a TV series based on the franchise was made for MTV with its own continuity. The Ghostface get-up, in our humble opinion at least, received something of a downgrade, looking less stylized and more realistic.

A mystery that repeats itself again...again...and again...

Love for sequels? Hard to come by.

Terror on camera...if this wasn't just another take.

And even then, it let out a scream in the afterlife for the next film!

Fair enough, I guess.

Is this the real life...is this just monstrosity?

I REALLY hope that knife didn't go where I think it did.

No matter what, this haunting masks always brings them back.

The least you can do is ask if they wear boxers or briefs!

The worst trouble of killers when they hunt in pairs.

This is a nice poster, but it looks...familiar...

"Before I kill you, pay the bus fee. I have priorities."

Yep. They went there.


A hunt in the haystack.

Yeah. It certainly hurt those affected by those events.

Somebody push it in.

Whoever's making these Stab movies is in for a shattering awakening.

Let me guess. It was the nerd glasses that pushed you off the edge.

The most vile of all the Ghostfaces...debatedly.
