I'm looking to identify an 80s movie. It was kinda like Mad Max. All I can remember is the main character had a crystal mask, and when he put it on he was in front of a tree, which bled when he hit it with an axe. Then he pulled the mask off and he was returned to where he was before he put on the mask.

  • Teleportation or alternate dimension?

    yes it seemed when he put the mask to his face he was in a different place alone he didnt have the mask and when he hit the tree it freaked him out. I was a kid when I saw it so I dont remember much but would like to rewatch it.

I found the movie - it is Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn.

The movie is a space-age western that portrays the story of a space ranger named Dogen (played by Jeffrey Byron), who is in search of an intergalactic criminal with supernatural powers named Jared-Syn (played by Michael Preston).

And here's a screengrab of the crystal mask:

    Here's an image of the crystal mask, which may be useful to include in the answer for confirmation purposes, in case anyone in the future is searching for a movie with a crystal mask...
