R.J. Torbert is an American author and designer. He was credited with naming the Ghostface mask in the Scream franchise.


Torbert joined Fun World in 1996 and was given the task of naming the mask prior to the film debut of Scream, deciding on "Ghostface" with the blessing of Fun World owners Stanley and Allan Geller. Torbert felt it looked like a "ghost in pain", believing it to be a unique design. The Ghostface design and title are owned by Fun World.

In 2017, it was announced that MTV negotiated the rights with Fun World to use the Ghostface mask in the third season of Scream. The new season will premiere on VH1 on July 8, 2019.
