MTVs Scream series won’t have the series’ iconic Ghost Face mask, but it will have bi-curious teens, because it’s not stupid. And the killer stalking those teens will, in fact, be wearing a mask, just not a plastic one because that’s so last millennium. As MTV’s head of scripted development Mina Lefevre tells Entertainment Weekly (via Dread Central):
“The mask was a big discussion creatively. We wanted to get a nod and a wink to what the original was, but we definitely wanted to make it more on par with what horror is now, which is darker…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.”
If we had to place bets on it, we’d say “organic-looking” means human skin, but really there are all sorts of possibilities. Rotten banana peels? Compost glued to one of those reusable grocery bags no one ever remembers to bring with them to the store? Artisanal human skin?
