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

Scott Glosserman directs Nathan Baesel, Angela Goethals and Scott Wilson in this slasher mockumentary where a wannabe horror icon shares the tricks of his murderous trade with a film crew.

Neat for the first hour. A good meta, alternative point of view to the tried and tested tropes. It does eventually descend into a bog standard Friday the 13th rip off for the final act and is a lesser film for it. Robert Englund pops up in a silly role but apt role. Baesal’s charming psycho is gifted and keeps you on your toes… shame he wasn’t in much else.
