Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)

A documentary team talks local killer Leslie Vernon into giving them a behind-the-scenes as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo.

This clever and funny slasher/mockumentary from director Scott Glosserman, takes place in a universe where horror icons such as Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger exist. This is a brilliant homage to all slasher/horror films, deconstructing and playing with the conventions and archetypes of the genre. Make no mistake this isn’t a perfect film, but it is a solid, creative and absolutely funny satire with a perfect blend of comedy and horror. Highly recommended!
