Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon Slashes Its Way To Blu-ray This March



Scream Factory has announced that they will be bringing Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon to blu-ray on March 27th.

You know legendary maniacs Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger. Now meet Leslie Vernon, the next great psycho-slasher. Nathan Baesel (Invasion) stars as Vernon, a good-natured killing machine who invites a documentary film crew to follow him as he reminisces with his murder mentor (Scott Wilson, The Walking Dead), evades his psychiatrist/nemesis (Robert Englund, A Nightmare On Elm Street), deconstructs Freudian symbolism, and meticulously plots his upcoming slaughter spree. But when the actual carnage begins, where do you draw the line between voyeuristic thrills, mythic evil, and good old-fashioned slasher movie mayhem? Angela Goethals (24) and Zelda Rubinstein (Poltergeist) co-star in this ingeniously twisted and award-winning shocker that Film Threat hails as "a masterpiece."

Behind the Mask is being released as a "Collector's Edition" which means that there will be a slip sleeve (guranteed for the first three months of the blu-ray's release) that features commission artwork.
