Quotes

Leslie Vernon: This is the living room. There's Church and Zoe. They are my little sweeties. Actually, he's not. Don't put your finger anywhere near him.
Taylor Gentry: [whispers] Okay.
Leslie Vernon: But you can pet *him*. He's a sweetie. I'm so terrible with these guys. I go away for days, forget to feed 'em. Little bastards just won't die.
Taylor Gentry: Turtles are good that way, very feng shui.
Leslie Vernon: Yeah yeah, plants and turtles. Plants and turtles. I only keep pets I can eat.

A Different Kind of Slasher........

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
