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
