If you have surfed through TikTok lately, you might have come across many creators with a Scream movie PFP or a Ghostface PFP.

Not only are people giving a nod to the Scream movies through their TikTok profile pictures, but many creators are also posting videos dressed as Ghostface too.

If all these Scream movie references have left you confused, don’t worry you aren’t the only one.

Why does everyone have Scream pfp’s on TikTok?

The reason that everyone has Scream PFP’s on TikTok is that they are a part of the Ghostface cult.

It’s a recent viral trend that sees users changing their profile pictures to Ghostface from the Scream film series.

As Halloween is fast approaching, the Scream cult has swept many TikTok users into its grip. Not only are people changing their profile pictures, but they are also sharing spooky clips and images from the film series.

Ghostface cult explored

Another reason that the TikTok users are using Scream PFPs is that the franchise’s latest movie is set to hit the theatres in 2022. Hence what better time to form a cult for one of the greatest horror hits of all time.

TikTok users need not be confused by the word “cult” though. The term is being casually thrown around on the platform, but it doesn’t refer to anything remotely dangerous.

On TikTok, a cult is just a bunch of people who are all part of one group that likes the same movies, series or share the same values. In fact, TikTok users have also formed cults for their favourite celebrities.

Who could forget the platform’s viral Step Chicken’s Cult! It saw users using a blue profile picture. Then there was the famous Lana Cult by Lana Del Rey’s fans. They all used the same selfie of the singer as the PFP.

The hilarious picture saw the singer smiling at the camera as a car behind her is lit up in flames.

Meet the creator behind the viral cult

The Scream PFP trend was reportedly started by TikTok user @ghostface4670. They shared the first Ghostface cult video on October 22nd, this year and it has taken over the platform now.
