There's a long-forgotten god deep in the jungles of the Amazon. Turns out, he's a big fan of "Alien" and enjoys turning the tables on everyone plundering his relics. When his cursed mask gets whisked away to Sao Paulo, it possesses a professional wrestler and wreaks havoc on a dirty cop, an ex-guerrilla and a sword fighting priest. It's a flawed but entertaining graveyard smash. Also, what classic horror mask would you rather find at a cursed horror convention?
Motion Picture Terror Scale: 1. Quality: 2 (Marcus) / 3 (Melissa & Grady). Enjoyment: 3 / 5 but also 2, for different parts of the uneven film / 4
