Unmasked Part 25

Unmasked Part 25 ★★★½

Jackson: Portrait of a Serial Killer

Wanted to usher in the Halloween season with something new and a little different, and UNMASKED PART 25 certainly fit the bill. This horror comedy centers on a deformed, hockey mask wearing mass murderer who suffers a crisis of conscience when he falls in love with a would-be victim; it's a premise that is maybe a little thin, but fun nonetheless, and it provides the film ample opportunity to poke fun at genre conventions. UNMASKED PART 25 feels a little stiff in its cinematography and performances and plotting, but I ultimately found this awkwardness added to the movie's quaint charm. A definite recommendation for any fans of slashers in general and BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON in particular.
