For the bloodthirsty crowd, Chattanooga Film Festival will be unleashing the world premiere of SKULL: THE MASK. Ahead of the film’s debut, check out the poster and the trailer provided by Fantaspoa Productions below!
Born out of the pioneering genre festival Fantaspoa and its first-ever marketplace, this mystical Brazilian bloodbath covers the Sao Paulo streets with splatter to spare. Filmmaker Kapel Furman channels his inner Jason Voorhees with the story of an ancient mask that possesses the human form to commit visceral sacrifices of vengeance for the incarnation of its god.
First up is the creature feature/slasher hybrid SKULL: THE MASK, from directors Armando Fonseca and Kapel Furman. In the year 1944, the military attempts to use The Mask of Anhangá, the executioner of Tahawantinsupay, a Pre-Columbian God. The experiment fails. In the present day, the Mask arrives in Sao Paulo, possesses a human body, and begins to commit insanely violent sacrifices in the name of its God, initiating a city-wide bloodbath. Policewoman Beatriz Obdias is in charge of the crimes, and is forced to challenge her beliefs as she hunts down this supernatural killer who is painting every corner of the city red.
Brazil’s Fantaspoa Fantastic Film Festival not only celebrates the boldest and best in weird world cinema; they also produce it! That’s right, South America’s biggest genre festival makes movies, too! And a double-header of Fantaspoa Productions’ latest will be celebrating their World Premieres at this weekend’s digital edition of The Chattanooga Film Festival – happening Friday, May 22nd through Monday, May 25th.
These films, as well as dozens of others, will be available to watch at any time while the festival is happening. Additional details, ticket info, and more can be found at www.chattfilmfest.org.
