Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
Directed by Scott Glosserman
In this clever mockumentary, a camera crew follows an aspiring slasher movie killer as he prepares to slaughter a group of teens. Leslie Vernon always dreamed of joining the ranks of Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger. But if he wants to become the next great psycho slasher, he's got to do lots of preparation -- from weapons practice to lots and lots of cardio. Fans of SCREAM and THE CABIN IN THE WOODS shouldn't miss this hilarious slasher satire, which features horror icons Robert Englund, Kane Hodder and Zelda Rubenstein in supporting roles.

I honestly loved it. Leslie was a lovable character and I think Jason Vorhees would be proud of him
Great movie! Recommend it to anyone that likes Slasher Movies
good movie i show it whenever i have nothing to do with friends
A very unique (and meta) take on slasher flicks. It embraces classic horror tropes and pays homage to the many slasher icons that came before it. It does a fairly good job at blending horror, comedy, and satire. The film also blends "found footage" and "standard" cinematography well, as it goes back and forth. Definitely a solid watch.
3 stars was generous. Any comparison to What We Do In The Shadows or Shaun Of The Dead is unreasonable, in my opinion. Not so bad, just not great or even goos.
