Trivia

When Leslie is applying his makeup while being interviewed about his target, the song playing in the background is the same as that heard at the end of The Shining (1980), where Jack Torrence appears in the photo: ''Midnight, The Stars and You,'' sung by Al Bowlly with the Ray Noble Orchestra, 1934.

Goofs

When Taylor Gentry is running into the apple orchard near the end of the film you can see the set lights at the top of the screen. See more »

Quotes

Taylor Gentry: That boy is about to seek revenge over the town that murdered him. He knows this, he says, because he himself is the heir apparent to that throne of terror so long held by the likes of Voorhees, Myers and Krueger. This man's name is Leslie Vernon.

A Different Kind of Slasher........
24 May 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A clever mock-umentary style horror movie about a film crew following around a "slasher movie" type serial killer.

Sure, it dragged at parts, and not everyone was the best actor, but it was different, and it was fun.

It shines a new light on the slasher movie genre. Unlike others, this one offers you a different vantage point.... you are tagging along with the killer. You go though his choices of weapons, the planning, you meet his mentor, and watch as they trade "industry tips & secrets"

Like it or don't, it stands alone from other slasher movies. Some people just won't like the view from..... Behind the Mask!

mwaahaha
