As the movie begins we see a miniature volcano spewing forth its molten, steamy goodness over a miniature city, supposedly representing a reenactment of Mount Vesuvius destroying the city of Pompeii in 79 A.D., according to the narrator...well, that was kinda fun...now we're in the present, and we see some Giuseppe rooting around on an excavation site. He uncovers a golden jewel box along with man-sized, man shaped, white stone figure (actually, it looks like a man covered in lumpy, crusty gravy). Within the jewel box are some shiny trinkets, along with a bronze medallion sporting a curse of sorts. The find is taken to the museum (not before someone dies mysteriously), run by Dr. Carlo Fiorillo (Rooten) and his hotchie mama daughter Maria (Mara).

Those willing to look beyond the film's obvious faults--the less-than-stellar plot, acting, and effects--will find a document of another era, a scant thirteen years after we dropped the bomb, a culture still trying to understand its relationship to history now that we possessed the power to eradicate history. It's probably a bit much to lay all that on a film like Curse, but the film is undeniably a product of its time. In the same way that it deals with issues (like history) that are very serious, the film can't help but be a part of cinematic history at the time, when these B-movies were needed to fill out double and triple bills. It's easy to see how fans could get nostalgic about an era that seems so much simpler. Even the film's faults seem more charming (or perhaps laughable) today than our own box office flops (if only because Curse only wastes 66 minutes of the viewer's time instead of 100). Although no one was convinced they were making Shakespeare, everyone involved is committed to the film, and given the constraints of time and budget, the film displays strong technical competence.
Despite the film's history, it's easy to get caught up in the flaws as well. Those looking for anything like today's level of polish and professionalism from The Curse of the Faceless Man will be disappointed.Read more ›
