Skull: The Mask

Directed by Armando Fonseca, Kapel Furman

svg-play Trailer

In this splatter-filled supernatural slasher, a Pre-Columbian artifact contains the spirit of Anhangá, the executioner of the god Tahawantinsupay. Whoever wears the mask is possessed by Anhangá and compelled to commit sacrifices to resurrect his god. It’s up to a museum assistant and a policewoman to stop the slaughter before the ritual is completed. A throwback treat for fans of ‘80s slashers and gory practical effects. A SHUDDER ORIGINAL.

A mask possesses those who wear it to kill in this splatter-filled supernatural slasher.

Cast: Tristan Aronovich, Natallia Rodrigues, David Wendefilm

Points for visual style, music, gore and FX. Minus for some pretty average acting and characterisation.

A very unique film, full of contradictions. Richly photographed visuals offset by awkward action. Fascinating use of quiet and ambience, offset by oddly low-budget sound design. A compelling enough premise and story, offset by a rushed though not unsatisfactory ending. A comic book style thriller that is worth a watch.

Good practical effects, and an interesting take on the undying slasher. I'd like to see a sequel with some better backstory and more depth into the monster.

The effects and action are the standouts of the film, but unfortunately not much else. Not a lot of detail on the supposed death god in the mask. Several plots that seemingly go nowhere or with little pay off. Also stale and wooden characters. The film has a certain style that can be commended, however that only takes it so far. Worth the watch if you want to see practical effects.
