‘Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon’ Comic Book Series

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.

If you are interested in donating to the campaign it can be found here:IndieGogoIf you haven’t seen the movie, check out the trailer here:

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.
