Lake Mary, Florida – Director Michael Aguiar and Bravestarr Pictures have completed production on the horror feature The Laughing Mask. Now, this title will have its World Premiere in Lake Mary, Florida (AMStar Cinema 12), before showing in other locations.

The film’s plot involves a tormented man, named Jake (John Hardy). Jake has already lost his wife, Jaycee (Inge Uys), to the Laughing Mask and his daughter has just been kidnapped. Jake must team up with a dogged detective, Kate O’Malley (Sheyenne Rivers), to track down this killer and confront him in his own twisted haunt.
The Laughing Mask continues to gain in popularity. The film’s original trailer, on Youtube received over three hundred thousand views. The interest from the horror community led to a short film being developed into a feature, after financing was secured. As well, the film’s latest teaser, released September 2014, has already garnered over one hundred thousand hits. Much of the film’s popularity is based on the quality of film. The Laughing Mask was shot with the Red Epic Camera in 4K digital. The high quality film can be seen in the latest clip, hosted below.
