Step in the right direction

I was lucky enough not to get caught up in the unwarranted crowd funding hype so I was neither excited or turned off by this one

The good. The mask looks great, courtney gains does a good job, and the carnival setting looks cool.

The bad. Terrible fx and an inexcusable CGI blood effect. Underused Tony Todd and PJ soles. Terrible action, amateur editing and sound mistakes, and a completely wooden supporting cast.

That being said, I am interested to see what the director does next. He had some great core ideas and I think he has the stuff to make a good movie, it just wasn't this one.
