If it’s been a while, or if you’ve yet to experience Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon for yourself, give the trailer and synopsis a spin below.
Nice, normal-looking Leslie Vernon (Nathan Baesel) has an obsession with movie-style slashers like Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger. Leslie decides to follow in the footsteps of his heroes, and, ever the self-promoter, invites a documentary filmmaker (Angela Goethals) and her crew to follow him around as he constructs his own grisly legacy.
Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon is directed by Scott Glosserman from a screenplay he co-wrote with David J. Stieve.
