Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon: 10th Anniversary Screening

From the NYTimes

By Jeannette Catsoulis - March 17, 2007

A Killer Kind Of Comedy

If Christopher Guest ever turned his attention to psycho killers instead of folk singers and dog breeders, this is exactly the sort of movie he would make.

Set in a world where Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and the like are not only real but celebrity role models for a disturbed hero, Leslie (Nathan Baesel), the movie examines his murderous passions through the eyes of a young filmmaker (Angela Goethals) and her crew...

Appealing more to the brain than to the gut, "Behind the Mask" subtly prods at the sick dance between the news media and ubercriminals without belaboring its point or lowering its tone.
