The Scream movies is one of the most popular horror franchises, with the first movie being released in 1996.

One of the most iconic parts of the movie series is the character Ghostface, who is most known for his scary masked look.

What is the Ghostface trend on TikTok?

The newest horror-related trend to go viral on TikTok isn’t actually as scary as it sounds. Instead, TikTok users have taken the scary character Ghostface and started to romanticize him.

Using the sounds of Ghostface speaking on the phone with the character Casey, played by Drew Barrymore, and asking if she has a boyfriend, TikTokers are pretending to be flirted with by Ghostface.

This is not the only Ghostface trend that has gone viral in recent years. In 2021, just before the premiere of Scream 6, a Scream cult trend took over TikTok.

In the past, we’ve seen cults for anime character Vegeta, singer Lana Del Rey, and even hamsters, and the latest in the long list of popular cults comes just in time for the spooky season.
