13. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon

This hidden gem is one of the most effectively funny, smart horror-comedies out there. Filmed as if by a documentary crew following around a horror film slasher serial killer, Leslie Vernon is a meta film about slasher movies in the same vein as “Scream.” Starring Nathan Baesel, Angela Goethals and a surprise appearance by Robert Englund, it’s impossible not to love this film’s characters. If you’re a fan of found footage, humor and playing with slasher movie cliches, this is the film for you. -Brianna Spieldenner
