Leslie Vernon sequel inches closer to the big screen

If you haven't seen Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, then shame on you! It's one of the best horror films in recent memory. Even my wife, who generally dislikes the genre, got a kick out of it.

We last talked about a sequel to Scott Glosserman's cult hit about a year ago and heard nothing more until today. Now, thanks to the fine folks over at Arrow in the Head, we can bring you an update.

Glosserman and company have raised $15,000 toward the project and have had that amount matched by an unnamed investor. Glosserman's contribution comes courtesy of donations from fans, and you too can help get this movie made by heading to the film's Facebook page and purchasing some merchandise. All the proceeds go directly to the film's financing.

As for the plot of Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon, it sounds like Glosserman is aiming to make a spreemake, which he describes as a mash up of a sequel, prequel and remake that will deconstruct all of the above, much like Behind the Mask did with mockmentaries and slasher movies.

Behind the Mask stars Nathan Baesel, Angela Goethals and Robert England will be back for Before the Mask. Hopefully we don't have to wait another year for an update on this project.
