MASQUERADE: Ben Lovett Scores New Thriller with Shocking Twist Ending
MASQUERADE is a tense 2021 American thriller, written and directed by Shane Dax Taylor (ISOLATION, BLOODWORTH, THE GREY). It stars Bella Thorne, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Austin Nichols, Mircea Monroe and Skyler Samuels. Synopsis: Eleven-year-old Casey (Lind) is home alone — until a group of intruders, led by Rose (Thorne), breaks in. They plan to steal her family’s priceless collection of artworks, but their reckless ambition is outmatched only by Rose’s opportunism. As the stakes grow even higher, Casey now finds herself in a fight for her life as the invaders prove they’ll stop at nothing to get what they want until a shocking twist ending…
