Earlier today Bloody Disgusting reported on an Indiegogo campaign to get a comic book sequel to ‘Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon’. If you haven’t seen the movie, the basic premise is that it follows a reality TV crew as they follow ‘the next great psycho horror slasher’.
It was a really good movie and it is a shame that ten years after its release we still haven’t seen a sequel. To get the story in comic book form is a nice consolation though and hopefully it will drive some interest in getting it put to film someday as well.

Good chance I’ll buy that.
I’m baffled that a studio won’t pick this up and finance it, especially seeing all the schlock that gets made.
The film made less than $70k in theaters overall, and while I can’t find out what it’s budget was I highly doubt it was profitable.
It’s a cult hit, but cult hits don’t tend to get sequels.
I’ll take a continuation in whatever form possible at this point.
