Lord of Illusions (1995)

An American thriller directed by Clive Barker.
An evil magician is bound by his protege and buried. The protege then fakes his own death. A police investigator is put on the case to deal with damages.
This was cheesy, but not horrible. The main attraction here was special effects. Plot and characters were like a B movie. Pacing and style were typical of '90s horror and thriller flicks. Special effects began with screws on a metal mask turning themselves into the evil magician's face. There were a few fake monsters and fire effects and the ending was mostly video trickery. Another interesting point to note is the evil magician's pet mandrill in the beginning. I thought that was a nice touch. Overall, a cheesy flick with some interesting things to see. I rate it adequate.
