| I want to see a film about the characters in the first 5 minutes
I've always been a fan of director Ted Nicolaou as he did some of the most atmospheric work (the SUBSPECIES series) for Charles Band's Full Moon. A group of college kids gets wrapped up in this evil couple's possession plan when they spot the title object in a scary apartment while on their newspaper delivery route (really!). Mark (Piero Passatore) soon becomes the focus of the man, who wants to place his soul into the young boy's body. Jude (Majlinda Agaj), his love interest, won't be having any of that as her deceased father has a connection with this old man and the evil mask. This independent outing shot in Italy starts off well, but quickly falls off. Part of the big problem is the acting by the leads, which is really bad in some spots as they struggle with the English dialogue. Nicolaou gives the film (actually, it was shot on digital video) plenty of atmosphere and he has found some great locations. As I said, it gets off to a great start with the sale of the mask. Unfortunately, for every good thing, there are two more bad things (weak script, CGI blood, wonky CGI monsters, shaky cam deaths, no nudity,seriously, the lead says, "I'm not taking my clothes off.").
