Ryan Torres, better known as Skull Mask, is a major antagonist in the Fear Street Trilogy, serving as the main antagonist of Fear Street Part 1: 1994 and a minor antagonist in Fear Street Part 3: 1666 . He was once a staff member of Shadyside Mall, until he was posessed by Satan and turned into one of the Shadyside Killers.

He was portrayed by David W. Thompson, while Noah Garrett portrayed him in the disguise.


Not much is known about his life before he became one of the killers other than that he recently graduated from High School and was an employee at Shadyside Mall who worked an unknown position.

He then toys with Heather by luring her to her doom, which is unsuccessful. He then catches Heather by surprise and slits her stomach open, which drastically weakens her. Finally, he stabs Heather in the back, until he is shot by Sheriff Nick Goode, who was unfortunately too late to save Heather.

  • Skull Mask is a mix of several classic slasher killers: In aspect, he is heavily inspired on Ghostface. His concept of stalking his victims as well as the setting being in Halloween is a nod to Michael Myers. Finally, his main skill being appearing near to his victims in the most unlikely places is a classic slasher trope popularized by Jason Voorhees.
  • The scene where he is turned on fire by Kate was an actual stunt rather than CGI, as showed in behind-the-scenes footage.
