  If you put on the “Mask of the Devil” you better be ready to unleash hell on all those who come before you! It’s 1878, and a group of Englishmen are trying to steal a mysterious mask from the natives. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned, and an ancient evil is released. That only means it will soon be released somewhere in the modern day world, and it’s going to be a very unlikely place.

  Mary (Nicole Katherine Riddell) has just taken a job in the porn industry. Not as a porn star, but working on set in a special role. While production is getting started, the mask of the devil is unpacked as a prop. Just like in the jungle, the mask finds its way on someone’s face, and the adult movie is soon going to look more like a horror film.

  The opening scene in the jungle sets the tone for the blood and guts to come. The mask attaches itself to people on set leading to the deaths of most of the cast and crew. There will be plenty of blood on set, and coming at the audience. They mix it up with both practical and CGI effects. 

  When people aren’t dying the film has fun playing around with filmmaking. They take the audience behind the scenes of the porn film, and its odd cast and crew. It won’t take long before the audience finds some prime soon to be victims for the mask to pickoff. And for those wondering, this isn’t “X,” and its a more humorous look at filmmaking than any serious sex scenes. 

  “Mask of the Devil” is certainly for the slasher fans out there. It gets bloody in the jungle, and even deadlier on set. The practical effects are pretty good regardless of some the CGI mixed it. When not killing off people the film manages to squeeze in a little humor from characters that will be meeting their doom soon enough. Hidden in all of that is a final girl, and a crazy ending the audience would expect. With that, I give it 3 pools of blood.

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep

Starring: Lisette Alexis, John James Cronin, Pat Healy, Vinessa Shaw and Sierra McCormick Directed by: Sean King O’Grady Written by: Max Booth III A Popcorn Frights Film Festival Review   How many horror movies come to that part when a character says, “We Need To Do Something?” A big storm has hit, and forced a family to hunker down in one of their bathrooms for safety. Parents Diane (Vinessa Shaw) and Robert (Pat Healy) figured that was the best place to be with their teen daughter Melissa (Sierra McCormick), and young son Bobby (John James Cronin). In a way it turns out to be a good decision because a tree comes down onto the house destroying part of it. The family is safe except for one thing.   The tree has blocked the bathroom door, and left them stranded
