Thorn, Mycho Universe

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Avondale, 1972: Mina (Maria Lee Metheringham) shows up at a hospital all bloody, a baby in her arms, and claims someone's after her. None of the hospital staff believes her - but enter Thorn (Atticus Machiavellian), a skull masked killer, who slaughters everybody in sight and takes the baby. Mina survives rather by accident ...

Avondale, 1988: It's Bethany's (Eve Kathryn Oliver) 16th birthday, but to her disappointment, her parents (Martin W. Payne, Tracey Chatterley) couldn't care less and instead insist on her turning up at an official function on her day of celebration. But fortunately, there's OIivia (Sophie Bryant), the bad girl yin to Bethany's good girl yang who also happens to be her best friend and who persuades her to break into school with a bunch of friends for a bit of booze-supported partying. It's when it's time for Bethany to leave to appear at her parents' function that the kids come to the realization they are locked into the building, made worse only by the fact that Thorn is locked in with them, and he does what he does best, and that's slaughtering folks left and right, and obviously he wants to make killing Bethany the crowning achievement of the night. Now fortunately for Bethany, she can rely on Olivia to have her back, and Mina shows up to help out - but unfortunately for her, things are way more complex than Bethany just being the would-be victim of a killer on the prowl as she's pretty much the very center of this story since birth, and her parents are not all she made them out to be. Plus Thorn might be more than just your friendly neighbourhood serial killer and might be a bit on the unkillable side ...

 

Mask of Thorn is a movie in which writer/director Mj Dixon basically does what he does best: Take the basic slasher formula and fill it with a story that's interesting beyond the "who dies next"-routine, spiked with quite a few surprises and intelligent enough for those not into slasher flicks, while at the same time delivering for the fanbase, with all of this wrapped into an atmospheric directorial effort that also shows a very assured hand regarding playing with colours and the like. And as with many of Dixon's movies, the outcome is a pretty cool genre flick that horror fans are pretty much bound to like!
