Here's a synopsis for The Etruscan Mask from the website of the former international sales agent for the movie, Beyond International: "In the unique city of Siena, Italy, five foreign university students stumble across an ancient Etruscan mask in an old house as they are delivering newspapers by night. It soon becomes apparent that with possession of the mask comes an inescapable evil. With the help of a knowledgeable professor, they begin to uncover the dark secrets that surround it, and are shocked to hear of its terrifying powers. After a series of unexplainable events, it becomes clear that the mask must be destroyed. However, one of the students has already succumbed to its powers, and in doing so has released an ancient demon which has no intention of being destroyed."
