| Ice. An underground city. Possession. Mediocrity.
Review based on the 83 minutes long Spanish version titled la mascara del demonio.

My first impression is that this has TV-movie-like graphics and font.

Then, the question "horror on the slopes?" came to my mind and gave me a bit of hope for this one.

A group of skiers on the Swiss Alps fall into a chasm opened during an avalanche. Inside, they find a metal mask of some sort, but more digging reveals a body hidden under the ice, the body of an executed witch, buried in the ice for centuries. Another avalanche seals them in. As they begin exploring this cavernous pit in the snow, they discover a strange underground city buried in the ice and snow, the same place the witch was executed.

From then on, witch tries to avenge her death, possessing members of the ski group.

Great set designs and lighting, plus the unique setting of the snow-covered Alps, but overall the film is lackluster, with a slow pacing and not much action.
