The list page: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls029632418/

Halloween and Day Of The Dead are coming again. Well this time you are at Halloween/Day Of The Dead combination ball where all the people must where masks that were used in the movies and tv shows. Which one hides your face?

Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/raYRXmfRybc/

Note:Since eye masks and face paint masks seam to be a large generic group of masks, a few group selections were made so this list doesn’t get bogged down with those masks types and makes room for masks that cover at least the eyes and more of the face.Also a feed of couples going out with similar themed masks were also made.

Should I have made one selection as a “Couples Group Of Masks” , and placed all the couples mask selections in there?

Then Willy, you are the first selection: No mask. Esmeralda loves your mask. She said so in the movie.

The following is an image of a woman who hides her face (probably) not out of shame but to protect her loved ones (a concept touched on in The Dark Knight Rises):

...and at the very least, she is "just following orders" by concealing her face :P

Likewise the person pictured below is motivated not by shame but by the need to guard against the effects of his/her own less-than-lethal weapons (tear gas, which hopefully wouldn't have to be used, wouldn't be stolen, wouldn't harm an innocent person, wouldn't have unexpected effects and wouldn't be used unlawfully/statistly):

(Likewise, at least "just doing the job" this person would be.)

I'm  straying too far off topic (as none of the SWAT photographs are from cinema/television), so I'd best not continue further. Thanks for understanding.

Decker's mask is positively amazing. It was one of the first things I noticed about that movie in coverage and imagine my surprise when I discovered it was one of my all-time favorite directors hiding behind it. :) 

I wonder how much sceentime he has in the movie. It seems like a lot, but I have a feeling it might actually be like 15 minutes or less. The thing with main antagonists is that they almost always appear for less screentime but still seem big. I try to account the exact amoount of time titular character has in The Terminator (1984) and so far it's 26 minutes. And that's accounting very inclusively and counting all the stunt doubles. I have a feeling Schwarzenegger's actual screentime is less then 20 minutes.

That reminds me. What is up with the character's name? It seems inspired by storyteller Phillip K. Dick and fictional character Richard Deckard, yes?

Nikolay Yeriomin Cronenberg is my fave director!! And you're probably right, Decker iss in a lot of scenes but they're always brief. Might be closer to 20 mins but wouldn't be surprised if it isn't

Don’t worry, they will be added. Probably as a new group since they all have something in common. A cloth bag as a mask.

Hi, Silitonga. In addition to the pertinent poll list, the character (image) you've referenced might make a fine addition to the Iron Mask poll list.

RoboCop is now also on the Iron Mask list poll. But he is followed by a very tough and dangerous character, Juggernaut.

I wouldn't put that on myself, but what about the mask of Guy Fawkes from 'V for Vendetta'?
I guess many people would vote for it.

Because, like make-up, face painting can serve either to enhance your appearance )like make-up usually does) or to hide your face like a mask. In all cases mentioned here, The Joker is wearing make-up to hide his true face. In fact, Tim Burton used that fact when the Joker lies when he says “I have taken off my make-up” when he was actually wearring make-up. Also the Joker was lying about passing out twenty million “Bucks” (a little known detail that was cut out of the movie is that it was all counterfeit money with the Joker’s face printed on it. Remember the statement he said in the art museum? He said he wanted his have his face on the one dollar bill.)
Oh that brings me to a side point here. How stupid and greedy are the people of Gothlem?!?!??? The Joker openly and publicly murders people on the steps of Gothlem City Hall. He unleashes a reign of terror and death with the chemical “Smiley” hidden in make-up and hair care products. But yet they all turn out to Joker’s parade because he promises to give out 20 million dollars?!? What complete MORONS!!!! They should have known something was up!

Oh Breumaster, I have a movie where the main character was wearing one of the silicon masks you had mentioned but it was Bela Lugosi as Dracula, not Christopher Lee. Lady In White
Enjoy: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0095484/...

Thank you dgranger, I will watch it. Just had a 22-hours-day. Maybe tomorrow.
I'm sure it's a pretty cool and funny clip - I will share some laughter, but later. ;)

That's looks spooky and bleak for a fantasy film rated PG-13 and starring a child.

It is not Jeorj. But it doesn’t have the gore that films like “The Lost Boys” did and they starred kids too. But it is a ghost story and it does have a few good shocks in it.

Typos:
...all the people must wear masks that were used in the movies and tv shows.

Since eye masks and face paint masks seem to be a large generic group of masks...

#4: Rock stars (Alice Cooper and KISS) and the revellers at the Day Of The Dead celebration use make-up too. Also, at times, the character of The Joker wears a make-up mask in the Batman films.

#5: But the Parr family isn’t the only one that uses them. Several other Superheroes use them too, including the Green Lantern.

#7: Zorro’s full Bandanna Eye Mask in all the Zorro films or...

#17: any similarly themed set of masks for a couple to wear like the one pictured here...

Also check #11, 14, 15, 20, 23 and 35.

I'm Canadian but most of our TV consists of American shows, and I'm positive Americans would not say "an unicorn", "an one way street", or any of it. And you are correct, Nikolay Yeriomin, people at the University of Pennsylvania (just one example) would be pissed if you called it "College of Pennsylvania"

In the United States, there is a habit to refer to tertiary education as "college", or even "school", even if a particular institution is a university. We would not refer to any school out of its name, but a person enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania would be said to be attending "college", which is true, since universities typically are comprised of colleges and it is also usually difficult to be a student at a university without being a student at one of the colleges at/in the university.

Nikolay Yeriomin, and Groovyvic, you both mis understand what I’m saying there. Yes, we do have universities and colleges in the U.S.A.. I had attended one. But I’m talking about the usage of the word “University” in sentences where the the exact name of the school is not being used, sentences like where the most British, Canadians, and Aussies* **, would say “While I was away at university ...”, or “I went to university”, or “I studied English Litature at university”, we Americans are more likely to say “While I was away at college ...”, “I went to college”, or “I studied English Lit. in college” even though the ‘College’ we had went to was in fact an ‘University’. In fact, is we Americans were asked the question, “What college did you go to?”, we perfectly comfortable answering Harvard, M.I.T., Yale, Princeton, De Paul, St. Xavier’s, Notre Dame, Georgetown, S.I.U. or U.C.L.A. eventhough all those answers are universities
* I know that is pretty much that is how most of the UK and members of the commonwealth uses the word “University”, because of all the BBC and Canadian programming that airs in the U.S.A., and all the British literature that also is read in America, like “Goodbye, Mr. Chips”.
** I hope that I used that right because I don’t want offend Australians.

Sorry for all the typos. I had meant to say: “But I’m talking about the usage of the word “University” in sentences where the the exact name of the school is not being used. Sentences like where the most British, Canadians, and Aussies* **, would say “While I was away at university ...”, or “I went to university”, or “I had studied English Litature at university”, we Americans are more likely to say “While I was away at college ...”, “I went to college”, or “I had studied English Lit. in college” even though the ‘College’ we had went to was, in fact, an ‘University’.

'Fun poll. It's so cool that you included one from Coco. I love Halloween polls.

And I like this: Unmask yourself here.  :)

May I suggest two small edits? ('A space before "Since" and I bolded the other edit: "mask" instead of "masks" since "types" is plural.)


Note: Since eye masks and face paint masks seam to be a large generic group of masks, a few group selections were made so this list doesn’t get bogged down with those mask types and makes room for masks that cover at least the eyes and more of the face.

Thanks. Someone noticed that #24 says "an unicorn mask." I doubt you'll get this in time but, just in case you do, it should be "a unicorn mask."

The poll suggester's claims about the matter are odd too, seeing as how with the exception of words formed "un" being prefixed to words that start with "i" (such as "intentional"), words that begin with "uni" always have such beginnings pronounced with a consonant sound, including "united" (at least in the standard American dialect), and naturally we pronounce and spell the singular indefinite article as "a" rather than as "an". So, for example, a federal senator would be said to be "a United States senator" (as in "a, u-ni-ted, stayts, senator", not "a, un-i-ted, stayts, senator"), not "an United States senator" (as in "an, un-ited, stayts, senator" or "an, u-ni-ted, stayts, senator"), with "senator" pronounced whichever way.

The name of the sovereign nation is the best example of "uni" to use, since it would be basically unmistakable to a vast majority of United States citizens.
