Movie Info

Also known as Eyes of Hell, The Mask, is an inexpensive Canadian horror film is distinguished by a gimmick which relies upon full-audience cooperation. Anticipating Jim Carrey by 30 years, Paul Stevens comes into possession of an ancient mask which harbors Strange Powers. When Stevens places the mask over his face, the line "Put your mask on now" is supposed to cue the audience to don their 3-D glasses -- whereupon both Stevens and the audience experience a series of hallucinatory images. The major difference is that Stevens' hallucinations give him the urge to kill; it is hoped that the audience will not follow suit. In the early 1980s, a restored stereoscopic version of The Eyes of Hell was released to television in tandem with a pair of 3-D Three Stooges shorts, Spooks (1953) and Pardon My Backfire (1953). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for The Mask (Eyes from Hell) (Face of Fire)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The 3D bits - which viewers see through a "Magic Mystic Mask" after commands to "Put the mask on now!" - are actually surprisingly freaky and effective, even now, and they fit right in with the current yen for practical effects over CGI ones.

The Mask was low-budget in 1961, and that its kitschy appeal will be limited to genre fetishists and popcorn-chomping ironists in 2015.

The 3D sequences are nothing short of astonishing.
