SUPPORT BEFORE THE MASK
Now I don't normally shill things on this blog and I KNOW how late my next review is (but it will come soon, I promise) however, this is a cause that I feel warrants our support.
If you've read my previous epic post on how all horror films tie-together (here), you'll have heard of the gloriously underrated and frankly superb Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon.
Alongside Scream and Joss Whedon's Cabin In The Woods, BTM is one of the most intelligent and entertaining deconstructions of the horror genre I've ever seen.
Set in a world that neatly combines several horror icons, the film follows a film crew as they record the titular Vernon during his plans to join his idols Voorhees, Krueger and Myers on a bloody night of slaughter.
And now there's going to be a sequel/prequel/remake, named Before The Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon.
Marvellous news... BUT IT NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Scott Glosserman (the producer and director of BTM) has launched a Kickstart campaign to raise the necessary funds to see the film come to production... and this is where you step in.
Using a very simple Amazon.com payment system, you can buy into production. From a paltry $1 donation (IT ALL COUNTS!) to buying an original poster for the film, T-shirts, £32 gets you a pre-order of a collectors edition of the film, autographed by the director and with a frame from the final cut of the film included!
Bigger and better donations see even more amazing rewards.
That headline up there? Well a number of these donations include you getting A SPECIAL THANKS in the credits for the film!
Even better, these start at just $5!!!!!!!
What's stopping you?
If this film is HALF as good as the first, it'll be an instant cult classic... and YOU get to point to people who flock to it in the future and say 'I was THERE from the beginning, man.'
So come on people, support the genre.
