    not void of serious problems. like, if you want to just make a horror movie, quit explaining mass murder by completely non-related pagan sacrifices.

    and when he throws the mask on the camera, i just started to laugh. some of the acting is ridiculous. when the main guy sees the kid killed and raises his fists and it is comically bad. and the unattached arm. just pretty awful acting.

    and the relationship is really unbelievable.

    but despite all this, it isnt awful. it is entertaining enough through mystery and a good soundtrack to make it worth a watch if you are a fan of horror.

    I'm surprised that the majority of comments are negative. I thought this film was really entertaining! After seeing this I'm glad I persevered through Halloween II (which I found pretty lacklustre). 4 years 10 months ago

    People, could you eventually forget about the title of this movie? Yes we know there's no Michael Myers in it and that's probably the reason why this is quite an intelligent little horror flick about mass media, commodity fetishism and how people in the 20s and even more in the 21st century are affected by its manipulative character. 5 years 8 months ago
