Here’s The New Mask For MTV’s SCREAM – The Producers Don’t Know What They Have


Scream is coming to MTV (remember when that stood for Music Television?). Here’s the new Ghostface mask that’ll have Edvard Munch screaming in his grave. I supposed they had to change it from the movies because…

“The [original] mask is so iconic. If you were to have that mask in a television series, but you weren’t following any of the characters [from the original], I believe that would be misleading the audience”.

So says executive producer Jaime Paglia. Another producer Jill Blotevogel says:

“It evokes some of the Jason hockey mask and the white Michael Myers mask, but it’s still first and foremost evocative of the Scream mask. It’s sort of a reinvention while also paying homage.”

At this stage in the game the Scream mask is as iconic (maybe even more so) as Halloween’s Michael Myers or Friday the 13th’s Jason – so it shows that Paglia and Blotevogel have no idea what the hell they’re talking about.
