I mean, look at it! It's a great, versitile mask though it is more defined than the altered Shatner mask from the original Halloween. Especialy with the long range of interpretations it has. First to mention is some people noting the similarities that the mask has to Munch's "The Scream. When I look at the mask, it reminds me of the reaper. I have the rest of the costume somewhere and really, if the ghost-like face was replaced with a skull, it would be an effective grim reaper costume. It's also tragic. The mask looks sad to me. However, it is interesting how Adam Rockoff, who wrote the book "Going to Pieces", which I saw the documentry adaptation off of Starz, actualy thinks that the mask, "twisted in an exaggerated, almost mocking grin, as if reflecting the look of terror and surprise on his victims' faces." That is great! And in the end, the two of us agree that the mask has a, "striking, surreal and downright terrifying presence".
The last thing I would like to talk about is the use of the camera equipment. The tripod is maybe the best toy you can get. I mean, do not litteralty use it as a toy (you can pretent it is a bazooka or something), but it is fun. It is fun setting up a shot. You got two handles. One for panning. Panning shots is fun. Then you got another which does more. It helps you pan up and down, or if you turn the camera itself on it's screw, you can also move the camera so it films an oblique shot (which is something that the first Scream film had accouple of). You also got a turning handle which if all of the extended legs are not good enough, you can turn it and get the caera up to a higher elevation to the point that you may need a chair to turn on the camera. It's a cool thing to use. Very, very fun. And then, when you are filming, you get the feeling that you are creating art and I like that so, so, so much. It is fun. Filmmaking is something very awesome.
