We met a new horror icon ten years ago with Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, director Scott Glosserman’s deconstruction of slasher cinema that’s right up there with Scream in terms of overall brilliance. It’s not as widespread popular as Scream, however, which would explain why Leslie has never come back.
Unable to get funding for a sequel, Glosserman has instead brought Leslie back for the comic series Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon, now shipping to those who recently backed it on Go Fund Me.
Additionally, the original film is getting a 10th anniversary re-release!
Revealed on the back cover of the comic book, Behind the Mask‘s 10th Anniversary Edition will include a brand new audio commentary from Glosserman, and it’s soon headed to most online streaming services. If you’d rather see Leslie up on the big screen, you can captain your own screening through theatrical-on-demand service, Gathr.
