I love slasher movies. Last weekend, I got together with friends who also love slasher movies, and our conversation veered toward Behind the Mask, easily one of my favorite films of the last decade. "Why hasn't there been a sequel yet?" we asked ourselves. When I turned to the Internet for an answer, I was delighted to learn that a new entry is in the works right now, but it needs a hefty dose of fan support.

If you're a fan of horror movies and you haven't see Behind the Mask yet, I don't know what to tell you except that you're in for a rare treat. It's one of those movies – like the first Scream – that challenges the conventions of the genre and raises expectations for years to come. Maybe that kind of lightning doesn't strike twice, but if it does, I think these are folks that can make happen. 

Here's the Kickstarter page where you can pledge your support to Before the Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon. I did! The campaign only goes until August 9th, so there's not much time left. The project has been featured on Ain't It Cool News, which certainly helps it get some attention, but a little more never hurts.

To clarify: I don't know the people making this movie, but I really want to watch another Leslie Vernon movie. So, c'mon, help them (and, by extension, me) out!
