Ghostface (sometimes spelled as Ghost Face) is the name collectively used to refer to the six fictional main antagonists in the Scream franchise. The character was created by Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. There have been five people to assume his mantle (from Scream, Scream 2, and Scream 3), with a new killer(s) set to portray the character in the upcoming Scream 4. A serial killer, he often dresses up as a variation of a ghost, or the Grim Reaper (The name given to his costume in the film is 'Father Death'). He also uses a device to disguise his voice. He is voiced by Roger L. Jackson (when the killer uses the voice disguiser; when the killer's mask is off, the character who is playing the killer talks regularly). The mask was created and designed by the design staff at FunWorld.
Ghostface is named after the comment made by Tatum in the first film just before she is murdered. It is also inspired by the Edvard Munch painting The Scream. He is also known as the Woodsboro Killer, after the town where he commits his murders.
Ghostface often calls his victims on the phone, taunting or threatening them before killing them with a 6 inch hunting knife. Even though he is usually known for asking his victims horror film trivia while stalking them, he only does this six times in the Scream Series.
