OK, so fans were understandably freaked out at the news that the Scream TV show will not feature the classic Ghostface mask. What's next? A Texas Massacre with no chainsaws? A Hannibal movie without Hannibal? I was pretty freaked out by the news, too.
However, we're still getting a mask - just a different one. Scream show creators at MTV are confident that the new, reimagined version of the mask will be loved by fans. MTV's senior vice president Mina Lefevre said:
It’s a darker, almost more grounded, evolved version of the mask.
If the Scream movie mask was the more plastic version, for a lack of a better description, this one is a more organic looking and frankly darker version.
Sounds pretty cool, actually.
Most excitingly of all, Jo Blo notes there's a current rumor that the new mask for the Scream TV show will be MADE OF HUMAN FLESH.
If they're going to handle a new direction for the beloved franchise and even inject some mask scares in the vein of American Horror Story's Bloody Face, I can get behind that. What do you think, Scream fans?
