Behind the Mask
At the danger of continuing the movie trend of the Preserve lately, which it could be argued drifts too far from the core mission (though I would counter is part and parcel of being 'something awesome that you can enjoy' which is, at the heart of things, the real mission around here) I have to bring to your attention a film called Behind the Mask
It takes place in a world in which Freddy, Jason and Michael (from various horror franchises) are in fact very real, and follows the preparations (Blair Witch style) of a killer-to-be as he sets up the scene of his slaying which will make him a player in the 'business' of such things. As he explains it, he is providing the public service of being a counterpoint to that which is good in the world, to give meaning to the good, for without evil, it would be an empty concept. Well, hilarity ensues as you can imagine, and it is wonderfully done, and features some astonishingly awesome cameos - I can't recommend the film highly enough and hope that all fans of the genre can check it out.
