THE 3RD AGE OF SLASHER FILMS HAS BEGUN”¦

THE 3RD AGE OF SLASHER FILMS HAS BEGUN”¦

“¦and it will be a glorious time for as long as it lasts, believe it. Psycho was the prophecy. Halloween heralded the 1st age. Scream the 2nd. “”Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon” will be the harbinger of a 3rd. Thus it was said, thus it shall be.

If you didn’t like Scream, I understand. Personally, I dug Scream and think the backlash resulted more from the crappy imitators that came after than from the movie itself, but that doesn’t matter now. Wipe that film from your mind. Behind the Mask is nothing like it. Read my review.

Also, remember this date: March 16th, 2007. Don’t you dare fucking forget. On this date will play the BEST slasher movie that has ever been made after Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street; and it can even be argued that it’s better than Halloween because Halloween isn’t half as smart as Mask.

Now, watch the teaser and the trailer.
