Good Idea, But Bad Adaption for the Screen

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.

" Date: 6/14/2021 Viewed: Shudder First Viewing Note: I remember I didn't bother watching this movie for the longest time because I thought it looks like a typical slasher movie. It was not until recently when I found out that Behind the Mask is a mockumentary and not a typical slasher movie. I finally watched it on Shudder and I really enjoyed it. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon is a fun and creative horror movie in my opinion. I really like that they try to do something unique wit"

"Re-watch - Feb. 28th I wanted to end the month on a high note and didn't have a lot of time to watch a movie before bed, so I decided to revisit Behind the Mask which I hadn't seen in 7 years. My thoughts from the previous viewing stand, and I geeked out over all the little details once again. At some point I need to add this to my collection so I can watch it any time. Threads: I'm going with this one ties into Happy Death Day 2U for the slasher-related aspects (despite that film dialing them"

"The idea of this film is good, the execution could've been better. But this was pretty enjoyable horror comedy but it wasn't scary which is a part of the film that could have been better. The mockumentary scenes had some funny parts in them."

"In a world where slashers are a socially understood phenomenon, Leslie Vernon seeks to be as good as Freddy, Mike, and Jason. We see it all unfold through the eyes of the documentary crew that follow him. "
