Did You Know?


John Berardo came up with the initial reflective design of the mask so the killer's victims could see a reflection of themselves before they die. Brian Frager's uncle, Stan Dufek, a former Disney Imagineer, took the design and created the final mask. See more »

User Reviews

College drama meets horror
19 October 2020 | by diegofuego-78768See all my reviews

This isn't the typical Screamfest flick. The story offers plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. The killer wears an ultra cool metal reflective mask and murders with multiple weapons, including a drill. There's a lot of social media so I don't recommend watching at a drive in, I couldn't see some of the messages. As fun and bloody as the movie is, the characters act like they're in a drama, which was refreshing.
