The Curse of the Faceless Man isn’t just that he survived the eruption of a volcano.  Nor is it surviving being encased in molten ash.  Nor, really, is it living buried alive until the late fifties, where he gets freed to walk the Earth looking for the exact image of his lost love.

No, it’s being trapped in a scatter shot Mummy Plot, complete with a metric ton of narration and mediocre acting.

Which really sucks, as the core idea is rather interesting.

Ah well.

With all its problems, Curse of the Faceless Man doesn’t quite make mediocre (0.5 points).  about the kindness I can be to it is say it’s inoffensive, pointless, and justifiably obscure.

Which sounds like I’m being nasty, but really, it’s just the truth.  I’ve seen it.  It makes me neither sad nor mad nor glad. (1 point).

And that’s the real curse on the Faceless Man.

Overall Score: 1.5 total point out of a possible 4
