What’s your favourite scary movie? Mine is Scream and I am always excited each year to see what items come out from fans, artists or licensed labels alike. As it’s the 20th anniversary(!), I thought I would round up a few of my favourite tributes for a seminal horror classic that helped revitalise the genre.
I am a big fan of acrylic jewellery and love getting custom pieces made. I utterly loved this custom Ghostface necklace that a spooky Scream lover, Alice designed with the jewellery maker, Black Heart Creatives and they kindly let me order one as well.
It’s one of my favourite pieces ever and is so well made. I love the little puddle of glittery blood! Scream stars have always commented on it when they have seen it, Wes Craven faved it on Twitter and Rose McGowan owns one as well!
I love a film shirt and Shirtpunch
make some of my all time favourites, as they have great quality designs and the shirts are amongst some of the best in my wardrobe to wear.
They put out a fantastic range of Scream shirts for 24 hours
and I haven’t seen anything as creative since, what with Truffle Shuffle, Areopostale bringing out shirts with the poster on and Wal-Mart, Fright Rags bringing out licensed Ghostface shirts. Even Wes Craven retweeted the Shirt Punch designs and we know he loved a slogan shirt!
I am a member of several Scream groups online but so many people talk about masks, robes, knives, all things Ghostface related, that its nice to find artists concentrating on the characters or scenes from the movie.
Over the years, several pieces had caught my eye such as a few minimalist posters or fan made art posters that circulated the Internet or was published in magazines, but it wasn’t until this beautiful piece by Mute Art
popped up at the Celluloid Screams horror festival and art exhibition
in Sheffield a few years ago, that I bothered him into making it available as a print and I made my first art purchase.
From the same exhibition, I also couldn’t resist this adorable little Ghostface by Mal Fisher
, how cute is it?
is a friend of mine and does the most amazing art,
I am honoured to finally add one of his works to my collection, although I was very torn between his Scream choices. Here is a fantastic drawing of Drew Barrymore as Casey Becker from a Scream promotional photoshoot.
I love the way Dale really captures Rose McGowan and he has one of the finest depictions of Matthew Lillard I have seen. Matthew now has one of his original pieces too!
I finally met Jamie Kennedy at London Film and Comic Con this year and it was great to meet the actor behind Randy, our favourite horror film geek! He signed autographs, took many photos and enjoyed seeing what Scream fans wore to meet him. He was curious about my Shirtpunch shirt, loved my Black Heart Creatives necklace and took a liking to this Woodsboro pennant made by Rat Kings Co collaborating with Creepy Co.
does the most fantastic pop culture caricature art, bringing the essence of a film scene or character alive on paper. I got this fantastic motivational Tatum “Hang In There” print coming my way, can’t wait!
Emma promises that we will get a further look at the other characters before Halloween, so I am very excited for that and will definitely buy a print or two!
My all time favourite art piece would be this stunning large Mondo
print by Ghoulish Gary Pullin
, showing Drew Barrymore’s iconic opening scene, in a Roy Lichtenstein inspired style.
Gary told me how it was the fastest approval Drew had given to anything with her likeness, according to the studio, and it is such a beautiful piece, I can’t wait to get mine framed and have been appreciating all the framed photos other fans have shared on instagram. This limited edition of 225 prints was released at a Texas convention where Matthew and Skeet did a special Alamo Drafthouse Scream screening and it is now fetching triple digits on ebay.
A final note, as Wes Craven sadly passed away last year, Funworld paid tribute by contributing a percentage of their 25th Anniversary Silver Chrome mask sales
to a brain cancer charity in Wes’ honour. It’s a beautiful looking mask, I don’t even collect masks and I’m tempted to get one. You can get one in the UK, through Mad About Horror
