She steals a new mask at a recently-opened store, in a off-limits room, much against the owner's consent. However, this scary new mask seems to be a little too scary, and Carly Beth is having trouble getting it off, leading her and her friend Sabrina to realize that the mask may have attached itself to Carly Beth's face.

The Haunted Mask

The real reason that teenagers love wearing Halloween masks is because they cover-up all of their acne.

Unfortunately, once on, the macabre masque in this horror movie cannot be removed.

Teased by her friends for her faint-heartedness, Carly Beth (Kathryn Long) ditches her duck Halloween costume for a more menacing mask that she stole from a costume shop.

Unbeknownst to her, the mask has strange properties that manipulate her behavior. And when she goes to remove it, she's shocked to find it's permanently affixed to her face.

Adapted from one of R.L. Stein's most infamous Goosebumps tale, The Haunted Mask also marked the genesis of the long-running television series.

Although the narrative is frightful and mindful, especially for the prepubescent market, it's the outdated special effects that really do this parable an injustice.

Besides, nowadays, instead of a haunted mask it would have to be a haunted sexy pirate costume.
