    Just got done watching it. Great fun! It is the Spinal Tap of slashers. If that sounds like it is up your alley, then buy it.

    Well damn, I thought I would rent it first, but I can't pass up a mask to add to the mask collection so I am going to get it. I do love slashers and horror/comedy so I should be ok. Thanks for the link.

    Just finished watching this (for the second time...caught a theatrical screening in the spring). Still my favorite slasher movie in years...great stuff.

    I loved it, great film! I can really see re-watching this one quite often.

    Best of all, it was only $12 from DDD with the bonus mask included, and it arrived on Monday. :evil:

    really interesting movie.
    except for the Blair Witch meets Scream factor, this was an original, clever and sometimes funny movie.
    if you love Halloween and Friday the 13th part 3, you will love Behind The Mask.
    we have ourselves a winner!

    I'm thinking about that DDD mask deal.

    How big is the mask? Is it something you can actually wear, or just a small collectible?
     
  10. I just saw this the other day. Great movie!!

    It looks small. I ordered mine a few days ago from DDD and they're backordered.

    I blind bought this on Tuesday because of the reviews and a rave recommendation from my friends. Wow, what a great flick. I'm a huge slasher fan and I was in awe of this movie's awesomeness for its entire running time. Great, great flick and HIGHLY recommended.

    Watched this last night. Excellent movie. The big question is, when's the sequel coming out?

    If anyone's interested, there's a 30-minute audio interview with the director (Scott Glosserman) here:

    I picked up the 2nd issue of a new horror magazine called Scars which has Behind the Mask on the cover. Theres an interview with the director and the actor who plays Leslie.
    It could grow to be a decent magazine once they get into a groove.
    Anyway, Behind the Mask was brilliant. With this and Hatchet, I could see a slasher revival.
    Of course, that means a remake of Pieces starring the cast of Smallville.

    Well, you guys steered me in the right direction with this one. LOVED IT. It was fantastic on all levels and just a total pleasure to watch. As a fan of slashers and horror/comedy in general, this one hit all the right buttons for me. It is going to get lots of replay at casa onebyone, that's for sure. Hell, I may just go rewatch it again right now. Good times.

    It's small; it fits in the palm of my hand. It's nice looking and well done though, for the size. I'm glad I got it. I already have it on display with my other masks.

    Yeah, I checked this out Tuesday. I thought it was excellent. That dude that played Leslie was good.

    I guess I'm the only one here who didn't think this movie was great. Sure, all the mentions of how to plot the killing spree and 'documentary' aspects were pretty funny but aside from that, I was sort of bored. The kills were PG-mild for being a "slasher picture" and I know, people will say I need blood and guts in my movie to enjoy it.... Well, sort of. If it's a slasher, then yeah!

    I agree with Numania. Leslie was played to perfection. The only times I was really bored was when he wasn't on screen. Great job to him.

    Gonna agree with the Funk Doctah West on this one. I liked the concept, but the execution left something to be desired. I grew a little tired of Leslie acting all serious and scary for the reporter only to then--Oh! Ha ha! Gotcha!--reveal he was just kidding. I laughed the first time. But I did enjoy all the fun they appeared to be having with this film, and the way they "exposed" the slasher genre was fun too, but the film didn't offer enough for a repeat viewing for me. I wanted more, I guess, based on what I'd read here.

    And the actor who played the reporter sure had a strange habit--she led with her chin in every scene. Kinda distracting.
