Is this the new look of the killer in Scream 4?

Jul. 6, 2010by: Niki Stephens

Last week, I reported that a new mask would make its appearance in SCREAM 4. You ready to see it?

It's the scarecrow of the SCREAM world. It seems a little silly in my opinion, but perhaps on screen it's a different story. This just doesn't immediately come off as threatening to me. Though, if I did see it at my backdoor it would probably scare the buhjesus out of me.

The costume is for purchase online. Note that it is already sold out on that site. There is no official word yet, but there's also been no denial. Is it just a coincidence that it's showing up now? The rumor came from a pic Wes Craven tweeted, but somehow has mysteriously disappeared. The scarecrow mask was not the only one on the floor, there is also a zombie one with his cat Cinnamon sitting right on them. Screen caps of the pics are still on various horror sites, to check it out head here.

Also, a site called Before the Trailer has released some set pics from the film. Apparently, Sidney Prescott is a best selling author with a book titled, "Out of the Darkness". The rest of the set pics are mainly town banners, Woodsboro police cars, and one of Wes Craven. These set pics are thanks to a heads up via Latino Review.

Check out the possible new mask for the killer and click on the set pic to access the rest.

Extra Tidbit: What are the chances of SCREAM 4 being good?

This is one I'm willing to give a chance. At least we have some of the key players returning.

Compared to the first two, Scream 3 was just okay. With the heavy involvement of Kevin Williamson in the fourth script (he kept regular updates on Twitter regarding its progress) and with the 3 main characters returning, this new one had much promise. With the announcement of Ehren Kruger being involved, however, the likelihood that it will actually be good dropped [link] we all know he will not be involved with the arc of the plot (something he is good at) but instead will be paring down ">

Um I'm a bit lost on the "new look" its a scarecrow with a somewhat creepy face. Hoping this isn't the official new look and just an idea being tossed around. I will see the movie but I'm not expecting much of anything.

Hmmmm

This film will only be good if done right and in a clever way. Like the previous films poked fun at the horror genre so what is this based off the REMAKE. New set of rules: not as good as original, destroy characters we like, serve no purpose to the series. The zombie ghostface sorta works but not sure i am feeling the scarecrow.

I dont think that this will be the new look. Maybe possibly it will be in a small segment of the film o.O either way. I think this is going to be good fun :)

I have to admit... looks a bit ridiculous. Especially the head. And is that a machete?

I sure hope so!

I don't like the new costume but I absolutely loved the first film! I remember having to sneak into the film and it scared the shit out of me I had to sleep in with my parents haha! But I sure hope this movie brings back the 90's slasher to us (sexy, scary, hip, and a little cheeeeeezzzz)

Dont think this is gonna be the real mask of the killer Im getting the vibe this film is gonna be somewhat like Halloween 4 in that the town of Woodsboro is somewhat obsessed with the past killings and will wear the costumes around town (i saw a picture that says "Rememberance Week" im guessing its the anniversary. Anyway i'm almost positive the actual killer(s) will not wear this mask but it would be cool to see the town obsessed with ghostface and dressing up like him. Kevin Williamson does

Somehow I don't believe this is the "new mask" that apparently appears in this movie. I don't blame them for wanting to change the appearance after Scream 3 made a joke of the killer, but this is not it. Like Niki said, it would probably be scary, but why a scarecrow? I like the title of Sydney's book. It suggests progression for the character. Here's praying they stick to what Kevin Williamson wrote 99% of the time.

The zombie mask is pretty cool but a little reminecent to Chucky's sewed up face and the scarecrow suit is kinda lame, maybe he'll try to blend in as a scarecrow in a corn feild at some point in the film...

Funworld

The guy who owns Funworld (the company that makes the ghostface costume) confirmed on his twitter that the original mask and costume are the primary ones being used. He even shipped 24 versions of it to the set. He also said next year, stores will be selling ultimate edition ghostface masks - not the cheap ones stores already sell on halloween but ones that are as good quality and detail as the ones in the movies. SCREAM 4 FTW!

There's so many things to clear up

I just don't have the time or energy to do it all here. But let me just say a few things.....The original mask and costume WILL be used and are PRIMARY. The zombie mask and scarecrow mask will also be used but I don't want to spoil what for. Tidbit : Yes, it will be good. Kevin's script is being used. Whatever "rewrites" it's getting is minimal and un-noticable anyway. Couple of my budds have auditioned for this and I've read the sides. Clever and fresh, and if you hate remakes, you'll love

I hope that when you finally grow up, and get your first job on a film set, and then leak a bunch of script details to a website, that someone fires your ass in the most humiliating way possible.

This doesn't bother me so much, but nothing beats the original Ghost Face costume. I could see why they would want to change the costume to differeniate it from the first 3 Scream movies.

The extra tidbit = I am really looking forward to this movie and I really hope it kicks ass.

I doubt it is the new look but more so, I hope it isn't. With the way this production has been going I wouldn't be surprised if ghostface wore a long pink Snuggie and a Darth Vader mask though.

Yeah this isn't news. There is no way that site is in anyway connected to the film, or has any kind of inside info. It's not like Hasbro or anything which is directly doing business with the studio.
And even if it was the costume, it is a cheap halloween one. If you get the normal version of the ghostface costume it is far crappier than the one used in the first 3 films.

This movie is going to suck so badly, it's going to regurgitate cliches from the last five years, people will laugh and proclaim it genius for being told cliches they already know well, and it will be considered a masterpiece. You know, like the first three!

I could see it working if it fit the arena. For instance, if this were some kind of Halloween outfit and there was a scene at an amusement park or something. But, I would certainly take this with a large grain of salt. Yes, it's a bit silly, but in the right context, maybe.

I'm actually looking forward to this movie. It's been a long time since Scream 3 and there is a whole lot more ground to cover now as far as rules and what horror is today. If Wes can bring back his old magic (which sort

This sounds like fake news to me. I followed the link to the site and they have about five different Ghost Face costumes, including Glowing Ghost Face, Zombie Ghost Face, Bleeding Zombie Ghost Face, and Bobble Head Ghost Face.

This is why I don't read Latino Review.

For a while now, I've hoped that if ever Scream 4 was to happen (which obviously is now), they would mock the remake phase and introduce an altered appearance for the mask, much as recent remakes have done (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, etc.).

This, however, is not the "altered look" that should appear on screen.

I think I must be a prophet. I could smell the dog-shit on this project months ago when it was first announced. I told you all this was gonna suck and they're slowly proving me right.

The scarecrow from "Wizard of Oz" is more intimidating than that stupid looking fuck above.

You'll be kicking your own ass when you see the first trailer. You've already panned it and don't know shit about it. What is there was a .........halloween party in the film? and these were used as the kids mock the anniversary of the woodsboro murders 15 years ago? It's not the studio's who are running out of ideas, its the lackluster audience.
