Differences from the book
The episode has some differences that were not present in the book. The book was about Steve Boswell coming across the old man mask that gradually began turning him into an old man. The television episode had the Haunted Mask revive on its own and possess the mask maker in an attempt to merge with Carly Beth again. All the while, Steve finds the old man mask and it bonds to his face. The Haunted Mask decides to use Steve as his minion in order to get to Carly Beth. And at the very end Steve and Carly Beth decided to burn their masks at Steve's place, shockingly Carly Beth's mask suddenly returns.
