Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon is a film that takes a false-journalism approach to the creation of a slasher. Leslie Vernon is a charismatic young man who is following in the footsteps of the great stalkers and monsters that came before him, but at what point does a simple documentary become a deadly game? The film opens up with a team of graduate students meeting up with Leslie Vernon, a handsome young man who's set himself on a strange life path; he's going to become the next slasher. He's creating a horrible local legend, training his body, and picking his victims with care, and the crew is along every step of the way. They learn the background of the creature Leslie's going to become, and they get an insight into the imagery and themes that drive Vernon's mythos.

Everything goes wrong, though, when the crew finds out that they are the victims Leslie has chosen, particularly the team's leader, who he feels must go through the transformation from victim to heroine, a central theme in slasher stories.
