Put the mask on NOW!


I saw The Mask (1961) at the Metro Cinema last night. No, not the Jim Carrey movie, this was Canada’s first horror feature – also Canada’s first (part) 3D feature.

Canuxploitation review.

It was restored by TIFF and the 3-D Film Archive from the best existing 35mm elements and it looks fantastic (pun intended).


I have a dvd copy – an older release that was transferred from video. If you’re going to buy, order the restored version from Kino-Lorber.


This is very cool: Limited edition soundtrack on coloured vinyl. Article.
