Twilight Zone the masks

“The Masks” was directed by Ida Lupino, who stars in the first-season episode “The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine”: the only woman to direct an original episode of The Twilight Zone.

M
ardi Gras incident,
the dramatis personae:
four people celebratory,
letting themselves go.
This they did with a vengeance;
now wearing faces twisted from inside—
for the rest of their lives,
lives spent in the shadow:
tonight’s tale of men,
the macabre and masks,
justice meted
in the Twilight Zone.
