These 22 Movie Masks Are Coming To Kill You

Lesson learned: If you see a mask, run.

Here’s a life lesson they should teach kids around the same time they’re learning to tie their shoes and say please and thank you: Masks are bad news. I don’t want to be dramatic, but I’ve seen a lot of movies, and guess what? Usually, when you’re about to get murdered, the person doing the murdering seems to be wearing a mask. This weekend’s “The Purge: Anarchy” follows that trend. Just say no to masks.

Use this simple alliteration to help you remember the rule: Masks=murder. They both start with m, so it’s easy.

In honor of teaching the youth of the nation this important lesson, I’ve compiled 22 movie masks of people likely to kill you. A primer, if you will. Enjoy. Or, better yet, run.
