Leslie Vernon to kill again in Behind the Mask sequel


One of the best, most under-rated horror films of all time is Scott Glosserman's Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. 

The 2006 flick put a fun spin on the slasher film as a documentary crew follows the next generation of unstoppable killer when they given exclusive access to his life. It great stuff, that totally deconstructs the conventions and archetypes of the genre.

Word has it courtesy of Dread Central that Glosserman and co-writer David Stieve are close to finishing a script for the much-deserved follow up, and Glosserman is looking to start shooting in the spring. Hopefully we'll here some more news soon!

Here's a preview for the first film. If you haven't seen it, Shawn and I suggest you head out and do so!

  1. Awesome!

    I have to agree that this movie is under-rated. It has an excellent balance of self-awareness, wit, and scares.

  2. Yup. And a decent sequel could actually be made, if done right.
