Storyline

Wilbur works in an old carnival and shows some gruesome things to the puplic. He covered his face because he had a sadistic father who burned his face. Everybody makes jokes about his scars and when the new boss fired him, he go to an old swamp-witch who gives him a peace of wood from a hanging tree and Wilbur makes a mask from this piece of wood and put all his anger in this mask. When he puts the mask on, everybody who looks on this mask commits suicide. He has created the Death-Mask. Written by Doom-Man

Ms. Quigley has every right to be what she is and show people what she got.
24 February 2011 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

Well now, you gotta give the filmmakers at least some credit here: Casting Linnea Quigley in a leading roll and immediately showing her in the first scene totally naked in a shower, spraying water all over her... well, where it needs to be sprayed. Alright, baby, I think with this movie I finally got what all the fuss has been about for all those years amongst horror fans when it comes to this cult actress! And damn, even in a 1998 movie she's still looking mighty yummie . But when I tell you she really was the best actress of the whole cast, then you might guess what that means, no? Yes, very bad acting everywhere on screen (if I still needed to spell it out). But there's still some amusing stuff going on here. We've got these settings: a freak-carnival, a swamp, a whore-house in some isolated town, tents & trailers. The story: a disfigured, traumatized, mild-tempered man/artist turns into a maniac out for revenge when he sells his soul to a voodoo-woman in return for the accomplishment of his masterpiece, being... a self-carved Mask of Death. Very, very low-budget fair kinda deal with more than one couple of boobies at display and some mildly entertaining killings. Certainly not worth more than my generous rating, but hell, I had fun with it .
