Following the exciting drop of the first official teaser for Scream VI, Entertainment Weekly has exclusively shared a brand new look at Ghostface in the upcoming horror. The image features only Ghostface, who stands menacingly with a knife; however, what's most interesting is the state of the killer's iconic mask, which is typically a pristine white. The ghoulish mask in the image looks incredibly worn and even somewhat dirty, sparking much speculation as to why this may be. Check out the exclusive new image below.
A popular theory among Scream fans is that one of the original film's killers, Stu Macher, played by Matthew Lillard, wasn't killed during the film's events. Stu was crushed and electrocuted by a television set, leading audiences to believe the twisted serial killer was done for. However, earlier this year, Lillard confirmed that Stu is, in fact, alive within the Scream universe. It was also revealed that Stu was originally going to return in Scream 3, though this did not come to fruition. With this in mind, some have speculated that Scream VI could see Stu finally return, and now the image of this old worn mask is sure to play into these theories.
The Scream is a composition created by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch in 1893. The Norwegian name of the piece is Skrik (Shriek), and the German title under which it was first exhibited is Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature). The agonized face in the painting has become one of the most iconic images of art, seen as symbolizing the anxiety of the human condition. Munch's work, including The Scream, would go on to have a formative influence on the Expressionist movement.
Munch recalled that he had been out for a walk at sunset when suddenly the setting sun's light turned the clouds "a blood red". He sensed an "infinite scream passing through nature". Scholars have located the spot to a fjord overlooking Oslo and have suggested other explanations for the unnaturally orange sky, ranging from the effects of a volcanic eruption to a psychological reaction by Munch to his sister's commitment at a nearby lunatic asylum. 041b061a72
