The Mask (1961)

Notes: 2/26/11
Put the mask on NOW!
Unusual dream sequences. Rather ridiculous.
3-D stuff is limited to the dreams.
Nothing special. Certainly not scary.
The mask itself is interesting looking.
Campy midnight movie.
Introduced by Elvira on the VHS copy. Her commentary is the best part of the whole experience.

Review: D+
Unusual, but rather ridiculous horror film that offers strange visuals in lieu of scares. 3-D sequences are the highlight but are only slightly creative. The mask itself is memorably creepy. Nothing special, unless you've run out of campy midnight movies.
