Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
Set in a world where Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and the like are not only real but celebrity role models for a disturbed hero, Leslie (Nathan Baesel), the movie examines his murderous passions through the eyes of a young filmmaker (Angela Goethals) and her crew. Appealing more to the brain than to the gut, "Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon" subtly prods at the sick dance between the news media and uber criminals without belaboring its point or lowering its tone.
