The Wax Mask is released in theaters in Italy. Produced by Dario Argento, The Wax Mask was to be Lucio Fulci’s glorious comeback to directing, it was to be his swan song. Sadly Fulci died on 03/13/1996 at the age of 68. His death put the film’s production on hold, until Argento enlisted Sergio Stivaletti to helm the film. The finished product is a very Fulci-esque film. A love letter if you will, to the Italian Godfather of Gore, I still believe Stivaletti did a wonderful job. But sadly, this film is a bittersweet reminder of what could of come from Lucio Fulci.
The Wax Mask was recently given Blu-ray treatment from One7 Movies.
