Horror Movie Masks Were Inspired By Munch!?

How many times have you seen the same mask in horror movies? Just remember series of 'Saw' film and your face when watching it. It was scary, right? I remember watching the 3D version of the last 'Saw' in London. Never, ever I am going to repeat that experience. 

Ghostface is a fictional identity which first appeared in Scream (1996) as a disguise used by teenagers during their killing spree in the fictional town of Woodsboro. Ghostface mask was created and designed by Fun World employee Brigitte Sleiertin as a Halloween costume, prior to being discovered for the film.  

Creation of this mask is based on the inspiration from a very famous painting "The Scream" by Edvard Munch about which I have written a post on the blog.
