Film Title.

I have decided to name my film MASQUE. It was suggested to me during audience feedback, and I think it ties in really well with the narrative. As the masks that the cannibals wear are a big part of the mystery and fright of the film (first tipping off Chris that something's wrong) it seems a good idea to tie them into the title.

It's spelt m-a-s-q-u-e due to influence from "The masque of the Red Death" by Edgar Allen Poe. In this short story the victims are attending a masquerade ball and this hides their identities when they're being killed. As the cannibals are having their identities hidden by the masks, it seems fitting that I should tie this story in.
