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.

The movie was only bad because of that blonde actor. I couldnt do it because of her. The reasons behind the things she does makes me wonder why alot.
This movie is great, the commentary and the tounge and cheek meta jokes are really well thought out, at first it's a comical parody documentary that transitions into a more serious horror flick
I've read many recommendations so I eventually watched it and overall I found it enjoyable. For instance, I tried watching HouseThatJackBuilt and Ring Zero and turned both of them off in the first ten minutes because I just didn't care. This movie is pretty engaging and fun and an enjoyable parody of horror slashers that does take a bit of time to think about what horror is from enough perspectives to stay fresh while watching it. I'd say it's better than average but not the greatest. If you liked this film, check out Tucker & Dale Versus Evil or Cabin in The Woods, or anything Evil Dead. Cool film. Was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
So much fun
