The Wax Mask (1997) Turns 20 Today!!

04/04/1997:

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.

 

STAY SCARED!!

Hey there boils and ghouls! My love of horror films came on a dark and stormy night.... ....Truthfully, it probably happened in 1980-something during a sunny day when I was 5 or 6. That movie was JAWS. I had never been so terrified to go swimming and I live in a land-locked state! I have been a Horror Hound ever since. Having seen hundreds of films, some good and some downright dreadful, my love for horror cinema has grown stronger than ever! I have a Sci-Fi nerd wife, which allows us to share movies with each other(while she puts up with MOST of my movies). A couple of my favorite directors are Lucio Fulci and John Carpenter. Contributing here at T.H.S and being able to work with these other folks will be a treat I look forward to. I will share secrets after a few drinks and I also enjoy long romantic walks in dimly-lit cemeteries. My fave top 5 films are: 1)Dawn Of The Dead (Original) 2)The Thing (Carpenter's Remake) 3)Zombie 4)Texas Chainsaw Massacre (O.G.) 5)Friday the 13th pt IV: The Final Chapter Stay Scared! -ZombiSurvivor
