Okay. We've another of those hacking movies here , with young hotties in an isolated house and a disfigured human monster tearing them apart one by one. And I think such movies will continue to be made as audience for such genre or tastes aren't gonna fade away anytime in the near future.
One thing I appreciate about the Mask Maker is that it gets down straight to business! Not many typical clichés as seen in most horror flicks. The ugly dude(character Leonard) just wants to kill & peel skins off which he does in a no-nonsense manner and without grumbling :) I call him Mr. Skin for that! You may have seen such plots many times before, either in a Jason movie, Wrong Turn or Hatchet but trust me, you don't get bored. It's neither new but not bad either. Just another slaughter flick you can enjoy with your drink late at night :)
Can't say anything special about the acting. All of 'em do a neat job, I mean every actor here. That's surprisingly good as many average terror flicks have only one or two lead actors screaming their face off while the rest look either plain bored or wooden. But, I do feel sad though for star Treat Williams. 13 years ago, he was the dashing hero in the popular monster flick, Deep Rising. Today he's hardly on screen for a few minutes and looks very old.
Verdict: Mr. Skin shows you how to peel faces without a mess. Take some free lessons :-)
