The policewoman Beatriz Obdias is in charge of the crimes, challenging her beliefs. Skull: The Mask is directed by Brazilian filmmaker Armando Fonseca, his second feature film after Uptake Fear previously, as well as a number of shorts. Co-directed by visual effects artist Kapel Furman. The screenplay is written by Armando Fonseca and Kapel Furman. This just premiered at the Chattanooga Film Festival this summer.
