Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon is getting the Scream Factory Collector’s Edition treatment, with a brand new Blu Ray release announced for March 28th.
The 2006 slasher mockumentary follows the titular Leslie Vernon’s bid to build his own violent legacy by emulating murderous anti-heroes, Freddie, Jason, et al. Styling himself as the next great slasher, Vernon employs a film crew to document his attempt to wreak bloody havoc on the small town of Glen Echo, Maryland.
If you missed this the first time around and you like your horror a little more meta (not to mention pitch-black funny), then you should definitely pick this gory beauty up. Behind The Mask also features cameos from Robert Englund and Kane Hodder, so if the presence of slasher royalty in a movie about psycho-killer hero worship run amok far doesn’t whet the appetite, nothing will!
The Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray is available to pre-order now via Shout Factory. The disk comes loaded with special features including two commentary tracks from the director and stars, and an exclusive poster.
