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

George A. Romero’s Daughter, Tina, Wrote a Script For Queens of the Dead




The loss last year of director George A. Romero was a huge blow to the horror community, as well as the filmmaking community at large. The passing of the man responsible for creating the modern day zombie and whose work influenced “The Walking Dead”, Dead Alive, 28 Days Later, and Jordan Peele’s Get Out was felt far and wide but we take solace knowing that his work and legacy will live on forever.

Something that brings a smile to my face is hearing that his daughter, Tina, who DJ’s under the name DJ TRx, has written a screenplay for a zombie film that is called Queens of the Dead. And yes, it’s very gay! Romero has not only written the script but also plans on directing the film herself.

Romero tells The Saunder Blog about the film, saying, “Queens of the Dead is a fusion of two huge parts of my world: zombies and Gay nightlife. It’s a tribute to my father as well as my entrée into the genre he grandfathered. I can’t say too much yet, but what I can tell you is that this film will have all the hallmarks of a George A. Romero classic: farce, politics, heroes, assholes, and most importantly, herds of silly and slow moving walkers that you can’t help but love. But I’m doing it Tina-style, and bringing the glitter, choreography, queers & queens.

Romero’s father always brought some sort of social message into his work, so to hear that she will continue that tradition is inspiring, especially since it comes on a topic that is so discussed and topical.

Wanna See Something REALLY Scary?

Wanna See Something REALLY Scary? Local 58 Contingency Emergency Broadcast



Wanna See Something REALLY Scary

“Wanna see something REALLY scary?”

To horror fans who came of age in the 1980s, the line above instantly evokes memories of Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks in the opening scene from Twilight Zone: The Movie. Now, on a bi-monthly basis, I’ll be asking, “Wanna see something REALLY scary?” with the goal of shocking you with chilling footage plumbed from the darkest corners of YouTube.

As a child of the Cold War born in the 1970s and traumatized by films like The Day After and Threads, I remember immediately panicking every time an Emergency Broadcast broke into a TV show I was watching. That alarming tone made my stomach drop and in the moments before it was confirmed to be “only a test” I had already imagined a barrage of nuclear warheads bursting overhead.

My heart went out to the residents of Hawaii who, due to a false alarm, believed a missile attack was imminent this weekend. For almost 40 minutes, families scrambled into fallout shelters, bathrooms, and even storm drains, believing war had begun between the United States and North Korea. Even after the all-clear was announced and the warning revealed as a mistake, nerves were severely rattled. I can only imagine the potential long-term damage done to the psyches of Hawaii’s youngest residents.

For a taste of the pandemonium that occurred, check out an excerpt from CNN’s reporting below.

While the shock must have been unprecedented for most, a bizarre alert that accidentally aired in the late 1960s puts the Hawaii debacle to shame. What viewers of a local station saw just before the end of programming at 3 am was a message announcing the fall of the US Government, and included instructions for committing suicide rather than surrendering to enemy forces.

Wanna see something REALLY scary?

The message bore the seal of The U.S. Department for the Preservation of American Dignity, included a statement from President Lyndon B. Johnson, and warned that failure to commit suicide as instructed would have consequences:

“Your local law enforcement has been ordered to ensure your compliance,” the message cautioned. “It is against the law to delay.” The final instructions remind adult viewers to put down their children and pets first while promising “There is nothing to fear.” Though the station later posted a statement ensuring viewers the message was a hoax, the potential loss of life this broadcast could have inspired is staggering. Have a look:

If the Local 58 Contingency, as it’s become known, seems too outlandish to be true, that’s because it isn’t. Though the video doesn’t include an admission of fiction, it’s written and directed by Kris Straub. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because he’s the writer of the popular creepypasta Candle Cove, recently adapted into a TV series on SyFy.

Still, the vintage look of the Local 58 Contingency, not to mention the current climate of heightened tensions between American and a rogue nuclear nation, make this video a truly terrifying viewing experience.

The Housemaid Haunts a New Trailer



Here’s the thing… if we had the choice between cleaning up our own house or being haunted by a vengeful spectral servant of sorts, well… just hand us a friggin’ mop, wouldja already? Still, in the case of The Housemaid, it looks like nothing is gonna stop her from sensing shivers! Dig on this new trailer.

Derek Nguyen directs the flick, which stars Kate Nhung, Jean-Michel Richaud, Kim Xuan, Svitlana Kovalenko, and Rosie Fellner. Look for IFC Midnight’s release of The Housemaid coming to select theaters, VOD, and via Digital platforms in the U.S. on February 16, 2018.

A forbidden passion awakens vengeful spirits within a haunted mansion in this bloodcurdling, erotic tour-de-force.

Vietnam, 1953: Linh (Nhung Kate), a poor, orphaned young woman, finds employment as a housemaid in a crumbling rubber plantation presided over by the emotionally fragile French officer Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud). Soon, a torrid love affair develops between the two – a taboo romance that rouses the ghost of Laurent’s dead wife, who won’t rest until blood flows.

Submerged in moody Gothic atmosphere, this stylish supernatural saga confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam’s colonial past while delivering heart-stopping scares.
