I'm suppose to be me, but I'm not!
~ Carly Beth freaking out after seeing that the mask won't come off.

The Haunted Mask is a major antagonist in the Goosebumps books and TV show. It is a mask that will possess whoever wears it.


The mask is cruel and sadistic, taking pleasure in tormenting it's victims. It is also very cunning, being able to think up lots of evil plans. It also might be rather sensitive about it's appearance, as it get's provoked easily when people call it what it really is, a scary mask.


The mask appears as a hideous goblin-like creature, with oily green skin and razor sharp teeth.



The mask, along with the other "unloved ones", was once a beautiful face, that where made to hide a insecure shopkeeper's face. However, the shopkeeper's dark thoughts began to rot and decay the mask, to a hideous state. This caused the mask to become cruel and evil.

"The Haunted Mask"

The mask get's stolen by a young, bullied girl, named Carly Beth, who stole the mask to scare her school bullies. The mask started off by making her a little rude, than narcissistic, than violent. She began to attack her friends and get extremely hot headed. She soon realized that it was truly the mask who was behind all of this, and decided to take it off. Only thing was, that mask had gotten stuck to her face, and wouldn't come off. She soon realized she needed to except who she was as a person to defeat the evil of the mask. So she did this, and then buried the mask where no one could find it.

"The Haunted Mask II"

Later on, the shopkeeper, hellbent on killing the mask once and for all, dug up the mask and tried to burn it. The mask leaped onto his face and made him go around causing terror. But the mask soon realized, that the body it had chosen was weak and decrepit. So it created a new mask to continue it's evil.

"The Scream of the Haunted Mask"

The mask appears in The Scream of the Haunted Mask as the primary villain.
