The 1996 slasher film Scream gave rise to a long-lasting horror entertainment franchise. The main antagonist is "a mysterious killer in a Halloween costume known as Ghostface."
The shape of the mask was inspired by a famous painting by Edward Munch, known as The Scream or The Cry.
The painting was completed in 1893 and represented the painter's own "existential crisis."
This painting has been parodied many times, including on the animated series Spondgebod Squarepants and The Simpsons.
The Scream mask also evokes images of skulls, ghosts (thus the name Ghostface), and the Grim Reaper. The Grim Reaper is a personification of death.
This fictional being is often seen as both the cause of death and a guide to the afterlife.
