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.

This slasher "mockumentary" succeeds where many attempts to blend horror and comedy have not: getting the tone right. The humor plays as well as the horror, thanks in large part to the talented cast.
Good, different, interesting. 4/5 skulls. Recommended.
This is the movie that brought Talking Heads into my life at age 15. Five stars just for that, and the movie’s also pretty freaking rad
excellent film. sharo writing and original deconstruction if the tired slasher genre. makes something fresh out of a genre thats well past its prime. a must watch!
Fun take on slasher genre.
