CAPSULE MOVIE REVIEWS - BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON
Funny and smart thrill-ride bolstered by strong performances and terrific cameos by some iconic horror vets. Leslie Vernon wants to be the best serial killer he can be - he’s been taught by the best - so he has a documentary crew follow him around with predictably ghoulish results. Acts as both joke at and deconstruction of slasher tropes in the best possible ways. Walking Dead fans will recognize Scott Wilson bringing the same plain taciturn gravitas to his role here and Robert Englund is never bad in any role. (4/5)
