Ghostface is a fictional identity adopted by several characters of the Scream series. The character is mute but voiced by Roger L. Jackson, regardless of, behind the mask; the character first appeared in Scream as a disguise used by teenagers Billy Loomis and Stu Macher, during their killing spree in the fictional town of Woodsboro. Ghostface was created by Kevin Williamson; the mask is inspired by The Scream painting by Edvard Munch and was created and designed by Fun World costume company employee Brigitte Sleiertin as a Halloween costume, prior to being discovered by Marianne Maddalena and Craven for the film. The character is used as a disguise for each of the antagonists of each film to conceal their identity, while conducting serial murders and as such has been portrayed by several actors. In Scream, the identity is temporarily adopted by the killers' target, Sidney Prescott, using it against them. In the Scream universe, the costume is not unique and is obtainable, allowing others to wear a similar outfit.
Ghostface calls its targets to taunt or threaten them while using a voice changer that hides its true identity. In Scream 3, this is taken further by Roman Bridger who uses a device that enables him to sound like several other characters, in order to manipulate targets; the changing identity of the person beneath the mask means that Ghostface has no definite motivation, ranging from revenge and seeking fame to "peer pressure". However, each killer shares the common goal of killing Sidney due to a chain of events indirectly caused by her mother Maureen Prescott. Billy Loomis created the identity with Stu Macher in order to kill Sidney because of her mother's affair with Billy's father; the Ghostface persona remains the same throughout the Scream series, featuring a black hood and cloak with a jagged base and a white rubber-mask resembling a ghost with a screaming expression. Though each iteration of Ghostface is human, they exhibit extreme durability against physical harm, high levels of physical strength, an supernatural stealth ability.
The character has appeared in popular culture since its inception, referenced in film and television as well as spawning a series of action figures and merchandise. In the MTV television series Scream, a different character named the Lakewood Slasher appeared in the series for the first two seasons. On September 18, 2017, it was announced that the Ghostface mask is set to appear in the third season. On October 10, 2017, Keke Palmer confirmed in an interview that Roger L. Jackson, who voiced Ghostface in the film series, would return for the third season, replacing Mike Vaughn, who served as the voice for The Killer in the first two seasons. Ghostface first appears in the opening scene of Scream; the character, voiced by Roger L. Jackson and taunts teenager Casey Becker with horror clichés and trivia questions murdering her boyfriend Steve Orth in front of her before she herself is killed; the identity has been adopted by the primary antagonists of each successive film to conceal their identity, prior to being revealed in each film's final act.
In the original Scream, the identity is used by a killer stalking the fictional town of Woodsboro, California. After the murder spree begins, Sidney Prescott begins receiving taunting and threatening phone calls from Ghostface, who claims knowledge of her mother Maureen Prescott's brutal murder, one year prior to the events of the film, a murder, blamed on Cotton Weary; the Ghostface disguise allows suspicion to fall on many people, including Sidney's boyfriend, Billy Loomis, her father, Neil Prescott, her friend, Randy Meeks, her schoolmate, Stu Macher. Ghostface is revealed in the finale as both Billy and Stu, who reveal that they murdered Sidney's mother and framed Cotton. Billy cites his motivation as abandonment by his mother, brought about by his father's affair with Maureen, while Stu cites "peer pressure". Sidney is able to gain an advantage against Billy and Stu, temporarily adopting the Ghostface persona herself to taunt them before killing Stu. Gale Weathers shoots Billy to stop him from killing Sidney, who finishes Billy off with a bullet to the head, citing the fact that "They ALWAYS get back up," a common horror cliche, now her catchphrase.
This is most one of the many tropes taught to her by Randy Meeks, obsessed with horror, lists these cliches earlier in the film, during a party. Ghostface's second appearance was in Scream 2 where it was again used as a disguise by the main antagonists. A series of murders occur at Windsor College, Sidney's current location, with the initial victims sharing names with Billy and Stu's victims from Scream; the killers again taunt Sidney and attempt to kill her and kill Randy. The Ghostface disguise allows suspicion to fall on several characters, including Cotton and Sidney's boyfriend Derek. However, Mickey, a friend of Derek, reveals himself as the killer, seeking fame for his prolific exploits. Mickey's accomplice is revealed to be Billy's mother, under the alias Debbie Salt, seeking revenge against Sidney for her son's death. Mrs. Loomis shoots Mickey, claiming to have indulged his desire for fame only to enlist his help in enacting her revenge, tries to kill Sidney. With help from the exonera

Killer (Alice Cooper album)
Killer is the fourth studio album by the Alice Cooper band, released in November 1971. The album reached number 21 on the Billboard 200 album chart, the two singles "Under My Wheels" and "Be My Lover" made the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Cooper said in the liner notes of A Fistful of Alice and In the Studio with Redbeard, which spotlighted the Killer and Love It to Death albums, that the song "Desperado" was written about his friend Jim Morrison, who died the year this album was released. According to an NPR radio interview with Alice Cooper, "Desperado" was written about Robert Vaughn's character from the movie The Magnificent Seven. "Halo of Flies" was, according to Cooper's liner notes in the compilation The Definitive Alice Cooper, an attempt by the band to prove that they could perform King Crimson-like progressive rock suites, was about a SMERSH-like organisation. "Desperado", along with "Under My Wheels" and "Be My Lover" have appeared on different compilation albums by Cooper. The song "Dead Babies" stirred up some controversy following the album's release, despite the fact that its lyrics conveyed an "anti-child abuse" message.
Rolling Stone's Lester Bangs gave it a favorable review. He explained that "it brings all the elements of the band's approach to sound and texture to a integrated pinnacle that fulfills all the promise of their erratic first two albums" and that "each song on album finds him in a different role in the endless movie he is projecting on them." He concluded by calling Alice Cooper "a strong band, a vital band, they are going to be around for a long, long time." Robert Christgau rated the album a B-, stating that "a taste for the base usages of hard rock comes with a hit attached these days, much less'surreal','theatrical', let us not forget'transvestite' trappings". However, he said that " falters after'Under My Wheels' and'Be My Lover', neither of them an'I'm Eighteen' in the human outreach department." AllMusic's Greg Prato rated "Killer" four-and-a-half out of five stars. He stated that "disturbing tracks... fit in perfectly" and that "other songs were more exceptional". He concluded by pointing out that "it rewarded them as being among the most notorious and misunderstood entertainers despised by grownups."
The album reached No. 21 on the Billboard album chart and two singles made the Hot 100 chart. "Be My Lover" reached No. 49 on the Billboard chart and "Under My Wheels" reached No. 59. Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd called Killer the greatest rock album of all time.

Psychobilly musicians Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper covered the song "Be My Lover" on their 1986 release Frenzy. Power metal band Iced Earth covered the song "Dead Babies" for their 2002 release Tribute to the Gods.
