Beyond The Box Set

Behind The Mask 2: The Reboot of Leslie Vernon

November 1, 2018

Halloween may be over, but our Horror movie season extends for another week as we're joined by special guest Mark Reid to discuss 'Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon', a spoof documentary following a surprisingly affable serial killer in training. 

Join us as we discuss serial killer cardio, the final girl trope, the correlation between murderers and magic nerds and much more. We also pitch our own sequel ideas for this hilarious horror, including Leslie's inevitable - albeit slightly less impressive - return from the grave, a comic book twist on the film's mockumentary format and a serial killer summer camp movie that sees the hunters becoming the hunted. 


Beyond the Box Set is a weekly movie podcast in which two passably creative British movie geeks take classic standalone movies and attempt to pitch sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. We've been featured in The Guardian, named a Podbean Podcast of the Week and listed as a 'Binge-worthy Podcast' by Apple.
