Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon is an amazing movie that dwells in the world of the slasher. Yet brings it into a scientific, oddly logical and legendary status. Like Cabin In The Woods did to all things horror, Behind The Mask does so with just the slasher genre yet differs that there’s a realistic approach.
I love this movie and I think this scene (among others) is a great kick-off to the gold this movie is. It’s not scary at all (but neither is the film). What it does is set up the stage for the entire film. Our film students meet this guy and he’s peculiar and they’re going on an insane adventure into a world know one knows.
