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

Chris Sun’s Practical FX Monster Movie Boar Gets an Action-Packed New Trailer



We’ve been reporting on Chris Sun’s Boar for a number of years, and now we’ve learned that the killer pig flick will finally have its world premiere at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival on April 13th. Sun has also released a badass new theatrical trailer on his YouTube channel, and it delivers a whole lot of ham.

Boar was shot on location in Australia and utilized practical effects over CGI, which is clearly evident in the trailer. It stars Wolf Creek’s John Jarratt alongside Otis Driftwood actor Bill Moseley and wrestler Nathan Jones. The supporting cast also includes Simone Buchanan, Steve Bisley, Christie-Lee Britten, Chris Haywood, and Roger Ward.

Regarding a general release, the trailer’s description states that the film will be released sometime in 2018, so that’s all we have to go on at the moment. In the meantime be sure to keep an eye on the film’s Facebook page for more updates.

In the harsh, yet beautiful Australian Outback lives a beast, an animal of staggering size, with a ruthless, driving need for blood and destruction. It cares for none, defends its territory with brutal force, and kills with a raw, animalistic savagery unlike any have seen before. Believed nothing more than a myth, a legend brought to life by a drunken local, the beast ventures closer to civilization, closer to life, and ultimately, closer to death.

It’s brutal, it’s bloodthirsty… it’s Boar.

Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Donovan Joins Bill Skarsgård and Maika Monroe in Villains



A week or so back, we let you guys know that Bill Skarsgård (It) and Maika Monroe (It Follows) had signed on to lead Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s darkly comedic thriller Villains.

Today it looks like Kevin Bacon’s better half Kyra Sedgwick (The Woodsman) and Michelle Woods’ husband Jeffrey Donovan (Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows) have joined the film as well, which began principal photography began yesterday in New York.

Being that the film’s synopsis includes “a pair of amateur criminals” breaking into a suburban home, and stumbling upon “two sadistic homeowners” I can only assume that Skarsgard and Monroe play the “amateur criminals” and Sedgewick and Donovan play the “sadistic homeowners”. But I could be wrong…

What do you think of this casting and/or the movie in general thus far? Let us know below!

Berk and Olsen previously wrote, produced and directed Body for Oscilloscope Laboratories, and directed The Stakelander, a sequel to Jim Mickle’s Stake Land. The duo will direct Villains from their own script which was on the 2016 Black List.

Tim and Trevor White are producing for Star Thrower, along with production head Allan Mandelbaum, and Garrick Dion is producing for The Realm. BRON’s Aaron L. Gilbert and Creative Wealth Media’s Jason Cloth are executive producers. Rick Rickertsen and Mary Solomon are co-producing. Endeavor Content is representing North American rights.

Principal photography began yesterday in New York.


A pair of amateur criminals who, after breaking into a suburban home, stumble upon a dark secret and two sadistic homeowners who will do anything to keep it from getting out.

The immersive theater experience allows fans become the stars of their own real-life, cinema-quality thrillers that have taken place all over the country, incorporated nearly hundreds of actors.

As a consumer, I became passive… I sit back and I watch while things happen around me,” Bousman says. “I wanted to feel more engaged. I needed something to wake me up and inspire me. Immersive theater did that. It forces the audience to be active. We want to create environments where the audiences are the stars… Their action unlocks the narrative.”

When we embarked on this journey our goal was to change and disrupt the traditional storytelling format,” said producer Gordon Bijelonic. “We wanted to give our audiences a true visceral experience incorporating all five Human Senses.”

This high-end interactive entertainment and nightlife experience will be a fully realized living and breathing world ready to react to all of the audience’s individual choices and decisions and will also incorporate new and cutting-edge technology that will be in play before, during and after you step through their doors.

This is the most fulfilling creative endeavor we could possibly be involved with.
