ENGLUND CUTS UP IN HORROR MOCKUMENTARY
Horror icons Robert Englund and Zelda (POLTERGEIST) Rubinstein are starring in BEHIND THE MASK (no relation to the upcoming Hannibal Lecter prequel), an independent low-budget mockumentary that 'satirically and cerebrally deconstructs the horror genre.' BEHIND THE MASK is currently being filmed in Portland, Oregon under the direction of Scott Glosserman. 'It?s BLAIR WITCH meets SCREAM meets BEST IN SHOW,' Glosserman tells Fango. The project co-stars Scott (MONSTER) Wilson, Julliard grad Nathan Baesel and Angela (24) Goethals. Neverland Films (NOEL, DROWNING MONA, PALMETTO) is executive-producing. Glosserman, who is also producing and scoring BEHIND THE MASK, co-wrote the film with David Stieve as well.
'Robert Englund plays Doc Halloran,' Glosserman says. 'He?s going against type. In BEHIND THE MASK, Robert plays the conventional Donald Pleasence-type psychiatrist who?s desperately trying to track down and capture [villainous character] Leslie Vernon before he kills again?'
Portions of BEHIND THE MASK are being lensed in DV, while others are being shot on film. A significant section of the movie will be shot through two first-person points of view. The filmmakers intend to enter BEHIND THE MASK into festivals next year in order to generate interest in both foreign and domestic theatrical distribution.
