  1. Leatherface is from Texas Chainsaw Massacre not Friday the 13th. It’s referenced that way twice on this page.

    • Ah, thank you! My mistake. I’m a huge Texas Chainsaw Massacre fan too :-/

  2. With regards to the title, isn’t the design for the Ghostface mask also based on the Edvard Munch painting “The Scream?”

    • Weirdly, it wasn’t. It was based on an old cartoon. Maybe the old cartoon was based on Munch. But the mask designer said that she specifically did not use The Scream as inspiration for the look.
