It was November of 2012 when we first heard about Michael Aguiar’s The Laughing Mask, and an update has finally come along with the film’s official teaser trailer and some new images. Check ’em out and enjoy a good chuckle!
From the Press Release:
The Laughing Mask is an indie horror co-production from America and Brazil from writer/director Michael Aguiar and production house Bravestarr Pictures. The Laughing Mask was shot and completed in Florida over a rigorous 28-day shooting schedule.
The Director of Photography, William Schweikert, used a Red Epic camera to capture all of the horrifying imagery, while Daniel Mazikowski (The Sadist) handled all the special effects. The cast is compromised of several rising stars including Fran Rafferty, Inge Uys, Gabriel Lee, Sheyenne Rivers, Matt Ganey, and Thomas Noel Smith.
The film’s story involves the loss of family. Jake has lost his wife to a deranged killer – The Laughing Mask. Now Jake’s daughter is missing, and he will stop at nothing to get her back. Jake must team up with Det. Kate O’Malley in order to find The Laughing Mask’s lair and the madman himself. In darkness a father will face one of the most murderous killers ever known: The Laughing Mask.
Director Aguiar says of the teaser and the film: “My idea for this film was to have a thriller and horror film in the vein of Angel Heart (1987) and John Carpenter’s Halloween; I wanted to keep all the effects as practical as possible. This is an old school horror film, and I hope fans will be pleased with the results.”
The Laughing Mask begins with Jake Johnson. After the brutal death of his wife, Jaycee, and the disappearance of his daughter, Barbara, Jake will do whatever is necessary to capture the man the media has dubbed “The Laughing Mask.” As the corpses begin to pile up, Jake has to find help in the detective skills of Kate O’Malley. Together they will play a deadly cat and mouse game with a killer in order to find Jake’s daughter and avenge the death of his wife. But The Laughing Mask knows of Jake’s desires for revenge, and he has plans of his own.
