The Mask is one character which is embedded in the memories of almost everyone who watched movies or Cartoon Network in the 90s. Jim Carrey’s absolutely inimitable portrayal of down-on-his-luck banker Stanley Ipkiss and the rambunctious ‘Mask’ was an instant hit with the critics and viewers alike when the movie released in 1994. It was an adaptation of a comic-book of the same name and is remembered to date for the innovative storytelling and the then revolutionary special effects.

As it often happens with movies with special effects, The Mask also underwent several iterations of the effects before taking a final form. We have come across a number of pictures that hail from a press release from a year back from the film’s release, i.e. 1993.

Frankly, even considering the fact that these effects were a work-in-progress at the time, they’re pretty scary. They make the movie look like a horror fest with the titular character painted as a demonic monster.
