What if Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees were just guys doing a job, skilled craftsmen so good at what they did that they inspired others to follow suit?

That's the premise of Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, a twisted little comic gem from Bethesda native Scott Glosserman that goes into limited release today after building up buzz over the past nine months at horror-film conventions.

Behind the Mask (Anchor Bay Entertainment) Starring Nathan Baesel, Angela Goethals. Directed by Scott Glosserman. Rated R. Time 97 minutes.
