Updated info for BEFORE THE MASK

b4tm11

BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON was arguably one of the best, most original horror movies of the last decade. You can count me in as agreeing with that one. I still find myself tossing in the DVD from time to time. Great movie that just never quite got the love it deserved and news of a second film in the series has been circulating for the last few years. So, last weekend … Continue reading
