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.

Fun deconstruction of the clichés of the genre, à la Cabin in the woods. A bit overexplainy considering the audience of slasher buffs this movie is (I guess) intended to-- but very nice nevertheless, the meta makes up for the slow bits, a fun watch :-)
This is a great movie, just watch it.
I like this new genre of movies. It reminded me of Capture. Kill. Release., another great movie like this.
It’s a fun spin on the slasher movie. It’s not as good as Scream, but it’s similarly drenched in irony.
One of my favorites. A “documentary” about an upcoming serial killer. Fantastic, witty!
