WHAT IT IS: Leslie Vernon, a serial-killer aficionado, explains to a news crew how he plans to execute his own supernatural killing spree, like his role-models Krueger, Myers and Voorhees.
HOW IT IS: An intelligent, reflexive take on 80s horror, Behind the Mask supposes that the horror stories that haunt Elm Street or Crystal Lake are elaborate hoaxes which elevate their authors to legendary status. In his own bid for glory, Leslie Vernon creates for himself a supernatural persona as he demystifies his “profession” for our viewing pleasure. With appearances from Zelda Rubenstein and Robert Englund, at times touching, funny and bloody, BtM is a must for horror fans and those who’ve wondered how Freddy kills in dreams and Jason comes back from the dead.
IF YOU LIKE: Friday the 13th, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream.
