Good Idea, But Bad Adaption for the Screen

6 years, 6 months ago at Jul 19 12:57
This movie, I got to say, had a good idea if the genre was documentary, but this is horror and this is total crap to the genre. I have seen "The Blair Witch Project", which i was told was pretty damn good. Dissapointet I was after the movie, because it didn't entertain well, it was boring, actually very boring, But this movie "Behind the Mask" is worse, and more stupied that TBWP!

I LOVED this movie. A great throwback to 80s slashers. Robert Enguland is great as Doc Halloren. He is one of my favorite actors. Every time I see him in a movie, I just want him to survive. This is also a great debut for Nathan Baesel. It succeeds at switching form POV to regular. 5/5 10/10 100%

The next great psycho horror slasher has given a documentary crew exclusive access to his life as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them.

"First viewing - July 24th I was not prepared for how brilliant this was. Clearly the creative minds behind this film are well versed in the slasher subgenre of horror, as they both pay tribute to & poke fun at its conventions. The film also provides a fresh take on slashers which I highly enjoyed. The only issue here is that it ultimately submits to formula instead of figuring out a way to escape it. But I highly enjoyed it."

" This sly "mockumentary" about a fictional slasher villain (as opposed to a real slasher villain?) ingeniously blurs the line between film and reality while poking fun of the genre's clichés. It would rate higher if it didn't lose the documentary format and ironically degrade into a typical slasher by the end. "

" Been meaning to check this one out for a few years now and it definitely didn't disappoint. Combine the dark ingenuity of Man Bites Dog with the fun, self-aware style of Scream and you've essentially got Behind the Mask. Except in my mind it's arguably better than both those films, even if it does feature a couple of its own minor problems. The premise here is really neat and slyly original and chock full of clever humor. In many ways the movie acts as a love-letter to the slasher films of th"

"I watched this movie on netflix, not sure of what to expect, but it was awesome. It's a perfect deconstruction of the slasher genre. Another I'd recommend to anyone. "
