Face Peeler was one of the monsters seen in his glass cube prison. He is seen very briefly in his cube during the elevator scene and is briefly seen on one of the monitors in the Control Room when Sitterson and Hadley are searching the cube prisons for Dana Polk and Marty Mikalski. He is not shown during the Purge. A hat can summon him

Physical Description & AttributesEdit

The Face Peeler was shown in the glass cubes as a man with rotting skin in a morning jacket and vest. It stood in the center of its cube and was seen grabbing both halves of its face before proceeding to peel it to either side, revealing its muscle tissue and skeletal teeth.

It is briefly seen in the DVD extra features.


It is unknown where the inspiration for this monster came from. Perhaps the creature is a reference to the body horror genre of horror, which involves the horrific and gory deformation and deterioration of the body. It could also be a reference to Nightbreed where the character Narcisse rips off his face.

Could also be a homeage to the facepeeling scene in Poltergeist, or Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of The Lambs.
