Actor Robert Englunds latest role is as a good guy named Doc Halloran in Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon.
The film concerns a documentary film crew who is following Leslie Vernon, a man aspiring to follow in the murderous footsteps of Krueger, Jason Voorhees and Halloweens Mike Myers.
Englund describes his role as the obsessive good guy a la Van Helsing in Dracula or Captain Ahab in Moby Dick.
He also admits his appearance might be considered a torch passing to the films title character, especially because the film deconstructs all the ingredients and contrivances of classic horror films from the 80s and 90s.
But while Englund might be passing the horror film torch, he hopes the movie is a hot seller because he could see his own character starring in numerous sequels.
Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon debuts in selected cities on Friday (Mar. 16).
