Ash Mountain Films, the same company behind films such as Dogged and Nefarious, has now launched their crowdfunding campaign for their new 80’s style supernatural slasher film Mask of the Devil, set in the seedy world of pornography.
Set in West Africa, in the late 19th Century, the centers on a British explorer who pillages a sacred ceremonial mask with supernatural powers from its tribal home. In present-day England, a fiery young woman named Mary takes a job at a low-rent pornographer in order to gain financial independence from her overbearing parents.
When the “Mask of the Devil” finds its way on to set, it wreaks havoc and unleashes unimaginable carnage. Will Mary and her new acquaintances be able to defeat the entity and banish the curse of the Mask of the Devil…?”
The film promises to focus on themes relating to the consumption of independent productions in both horror and pornography demographics – and cast members are being revealed throughout the crowdfunding campaign. Relying heavily on practical effects, the film will be a character-driven exploration of some pertinent social and
moral issues, as well as appealing to horror fans with a penchant for gore!
Raising 15% in the first 24 hours of the campaign Mask of the Devil, set to film in April of 2021, promises a throwback to the vintage golden era of slasher movies and wants to create both a new horror icon and a new scream queen. The Kickstarter campaign features a ton of great rewards for backers including copies of the film, T-shirts, screen-used props and costumes, and much more.
