Quick question for you … if the sequel to Behind the Mask was coming out, say, next week, you’d buy it, right? I know we would. After the first flick, who doesn’t want a sequel? Here’s the deal … not only can you reserve yourself a copy of the sequel on DVD and Blu-ray RIGHT NOW, but by doing so you’ll also be helping to get the flick made! How friggin’ cool is that?!?

In 2006 director Scott Glosserman took the horror world by storm with his debut feature, Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon, the mockumentary which followed Leslie Vernon as he planned his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo.

After years of rumors that Glosserman was preparing a new Leslie Vernon film, the whole team – filmmakers and actors – are back for another round. This time Glosserman requests the help of Leslie Vernon’s loyal fans to compile financing for the “sprequel” – a mash-up of a sequel, prequel, and remake – to Behind The Mask.

With Before the Mask Glosserman has set a goal to be the first film to raise all funds through crowd financing on Facebook.

Do you want to see the next Leslie Vernon movie? All you have to do is pre-reserve the DVD today and help it get made.

It’s simple; the filmmakers and stars are back for another round and are looking to you, the indie horror community, for a commitment. They need YOU to pre-reserve a copy of the finished product. The money you pledge to buy the DVD will help fund the flick! That’s a pretty clear return on your investment.

You WILL NOT be charged until this project is FUNDED and GREENLIT. That means all you have to do is pledge to pre-order it. If enough money is raised, you’ll get the “Supporters’ Edition” of the Blu-ray or DVD that you would have bought anyway. If not, hell, at least we tried, right? Come on! Make some history with us!


Already fans have flocked to the Before the Mask Facebook page to pledge over $6,000 by pre-ordering special edition DVDs and merchandise for Before the Mask. And now new premium items have been added to the Before the Mask store offering fans the opportunity to buy a walk-on role, party with the cast at the wrap party, or receive a phone call from the film’s star Nathan Baesel.

The video below features a special message from Leslie himself asking Vernonites to join together to support the making of Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon.

Premium Items Just Added to Store:

• GRATITUDE! Of course we’ll give you your choice of the Supporters’ Edition of the DVD or Blu-Ray AND the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, but the director, Scott Glosserman, and Leslie Vernon’s look alike, Nathan Baesel, will personally call you to thank you for your “pre”pre-purchases. $250

• FAN PACKAGE! Includes a special prop from the film/a phone call from the director, Scott Glosserman/signed poster by the cast/Supporters’ Edition of the DVD or Blu-Ray/copy of the original motion picture soundtrack. $500

• BE AN EXTRA IN THE MOVIE! We’ll let you know when our shooting days are so you can choose when to come (don’t worry, we’ll be shooting weekends). Supporters’ Edition of the DVD/Blu-Ray included. You’ll have to pay your way and put yourself up, but we will have discounted rates at our cast/crew hotel, and if we’re not dead tired, party with us, too! $750

• SPEND THE DAY ON THE SET AND ATTEND OUR WRAP PARTY! Come watch our final day of shooting and party with our exhausted asses the night we wrap production. You’ll be responsible for getting there and putting yourself up, but we’ll have hotel deals…or you may just get lucky with a survivor girl/guy…doubtful, but you never know. $1,000

• OWN LESLIE VERNON’S OUTFIT, SCYTHE AND MASK!! We’ll make three of Leslie Vernon’s “Boy” getups for filming. These carefully crafted costumes will be created by our visual effects team, and Nathan Baesel will wear them throughout production. Only one outfit survived the original movie so this will be the ultimate collector’s item from B4TM! $5,000

• GET KILLED IN THE MOVIE! That’s right! Every horror fan’s wet dream, come true! These scenes occur on specific shooting days so your schedule must be flexible. If there was ever a good reason for sick days…We’ll fly you out and put you up at our cast/crew hotel, and we’ll treat you like a star. Then we’ll bloody you up for your big moment. $7,500

KISS Meets Army of Darkness in New Comic Miniseries!



Dynamite Entertainment just announced that they are planning to bring two of their bestselling brands together in “KISS/Army of Darkness #1”. The new comic book series will unite the rock band with none other than Ash for some Deadite ass kicking.

The series will be written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims and illustrated by Ruairi Coleman. And the debut issue of “KISS/Army of Darkness” features three art covers from Kyle Strahm, Goni Montes, and Ken Haeser.

You can find all three covers below along with quotes from the creative team. After looking through all of that make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new hybrid comic series in the comments below or on social media!

With Ash vs. The Army of Darkness, Chris and I were given kind of carte blanche to do whatever we wanted to the world of AOD, and we went for broke,” Co-writer Chad Bowers says. “We introduced some new characters and concepts, and built a legacy for Ash’s comics adventures that I’m immensely proud of, but not in a million years could I have guessed we’d get to continue that momentum with the added bonus of tossing the world’s greatest rock n’ roll band into the mix! I’ve been in the tank for KISS since I was in middle school. I remember buying the KISS tribute album, KISS My Ass for the Lemonheads (they covered Plaster Caster), which lead to me picking up Greatest Hits, and so on. But when I found out there was a KISS comic with blood in it, I signed up for life! Of course, I adore the songs (literally listening to Do You Love Me right now), but I’m just as obsessed with the way KISS transcends the music to become something of a genre themselves. It’s something I think about a lot, honestly, so no surprise, it’s a big part of our story too!”

“When it comes to Army of Darkness, I guess you could say that Ash is a bit of a gambler, but he’s nobody’s fool,” Co-writer Chris Sims says. “And since our first story was set back at Alan Shepard High, we’re looking forward to showing him some things that you can’t learn in school. Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the deep-cut lyrics now, but for real — if you thought Deadites at Homecoming and the Supernatural Military-Adjacent Response Team were taking Ash in a new direction, just wait until you see how we team him up with the Starchild, Space Ace, the Demon, and the Catman. In the grand tradition of the film, we’re tearing up the entire space-time continuum and if you think you know how weird this is gonna get… well, you sure know somethin’!”

“Having done some work for Dynamite in the past, I’ve really been wanting to get my foot in the door here for a long time so I can play in the sandbox of the amazing licenses they have,” Artist Ruairi Coleman says. “Chief among those, and high up on my bucket list, is Army of Darkness: Hail to the king, baby! So, when I was offered the job of drawing the KISS/Army of Darkness crossover, I couldn’t believe my luck! The concept is totally bonkers, but in a way, that would make complete sense in the world of Army of Darkness. Thinking about it, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done already and I’m honored (and more than a little intimidated) to be the guy who draws it.”

“After a more than 40-year career, KISS continues to be one of rock’s most celebrated bands, while Army of Darkness continues to be a staple in the comic book industry. We’re both honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with Gene and Paul to bring their world-renowned alter-egos to comics alongside our very own Ashy Slashy,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “The raging guitar chords and pyrotechnic spectacle of their stage shows could have come straight from the pages of the Necronomicon, and this epic battle between The Demon and Deadites will appeal to the hellions in all of us!”

Issue #1 will be available on digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

The KISS/Army of Darkness miniseries event hits February 2018.


KISS is on top of the world and rocking faces until the night disciples of The Destroyer show up and the band disappears. With the tour canceled, a young Ash misses one of the most important events of his life that will change his destiny. Now the Chosen One has to get back on the right path and join the KISS ARMY OF DARKNESS!

Jason Lives Director Pitched Follow-Up: Jason Vs Cheech and Chong



One of my favorite entries in the Friday the 13th series is director ‘s Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The mixture of old-school gothic horror and comedy is always a welcome treat around these parts.

But why wasn’t McLoughlin asked to write and direct the follow-up?

Actually, it turns out he was asked to follow up Jason Lives, McLoughlin recently told Mick Garris on the Post Mortem podcast.

But his pitch – Jason vs Cheech and Chong – didn’t go over so well…

“[Frank Mancuso Jr.] wanted me to do another film after we did Jason,” McLoughlin says. “And I said, ‘What are you thinking? I don’t know what it could be now.’ And he said, ‘Well, what do you think about Freddy (Krueger) and Jason?’ And I go, ‘But Freddy’s at New Line and the guys at Paramount have [Jason].’ And it’s like, ‘Well, we’re going to try and see if we can work something out.’ So, I started thinking about that, going, It doesn’t make sense. I mean he lives in one realm and — you know, I take this stuff very seriously, what realm a monster’s supposed to stay in. And he came back, he goes, ‘Eh, forget it, it’s not going to work anyway.’ And I said, ‘You know what? You guys own Cheech and Chong. What if we do Cheech and Chong-meets-Jason? They’re like camp counselors or something. It’s like, ‘Hey, man, I saw Jason out there.’ ‘No, man, that’s a myth.’ But he said, ‘You know what? No.’”

Too bad. While I don’t know how well a Cheech and Chong/Friday the 13th flick would go, with McLoughlin at the helm, the film would have at least been funny as hell.

Plus we already got these two knuckleheads in Part III.

Are you upset we never got Tom McLoughlin’s Jason vs Cheech and Chong? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on social media!

You can buy Friday the 13th: Part VI – Jason Lives on Blu-ray HERE.
