Prior to the start of filming Scream (1996), production had been doing location scouting and spotted a "Weeping Ghost" mask made by the company Funworld. Unable to strike a deal for its use in the film, Wes Craven tasked KNB FX to create a mask based from the Funworld mask they had previously found.
Some of the KNB concept designs strayed wildly from the Funworld design, but the closest option was selected and used for some shots.
Some days into filming, producers were able to strike a deal with Funworld that allowed them to use the "Weeping Ghost" mask for filming and these were used for the remainder of production. Because of this late change, some scenes made it into the film using the KNB mask such as in Principal Henry and Casey Becker's death scene.
A total of 6 KNB masks were made, 5 of which belong to a private collector and one that resides in unknown hands.
A handful of Funworld Masks were used and are scattered throughout private collector hands.
