According to Cher, Mask was filmed in Rocky and Rusty's old neighborhood, one day she was walking down street with Eric Stoltz (in makeup) and an old man yelled Hi at Eric. He tells Eric "I'm so happy to see you, I heard you died". Cher says he was so happy that they didn't have the heart to tell him the truth. See more »
In the final scenes when Rusty destroys the kitchen, after she has taken the mug and destroyed all the glasses on the wooden shelf, the next scene in which she walks back into Rocky's bedroom, you can clearly see that there is blood on the right side of her forehead, making it appear as if she apparently got cut by some of the flying glass.

This is an excellent film with an excellent story played by an excellent cast! Rocky, a teenager with a horribly disfigured skull tries to fit in. His mother, ably played by Cher, portrays a biker babe who loves her son but little else. Sam Eliot plays her biker boyfriend but also has a soft spot for Rocky. Rocky loves a blind girl, played wonderfully by Laura Dern. All in all, this is a touching, but not overly sappy film! This one is worth a watch.
