Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon is a 2006 mockumentary which combines genres of black comedy and slasher film. In a way it is inspired by Belgian movie Man Bites Dog - both movies feature movie crew who films escapades of a serial killer. This time the one is Leslie Mancuso, who shapes his character after the local urban legend of the ghost of Leslie Vernon haunting the old farmhouse.

A film, which takes place in a universe where such characters as Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th and Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street are real, features appearance of genre stars such as Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Kane Hodder (Jason in later instalments of Friday the 13th, starting with 7th film), Zelda Rubinstein (Poltergeist) and Scott Wilson (The Exorcist III: Legion).

The movie quickly gained critical acclaim and a cult following. A sequel is still planned but hadn't even entered pre-production as of 2014.

The following weapons were used in the film Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon:

Smith & Wesson 66 "Non Gun"

Doc Halloran (Robert Englund), a clear homage to Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) from Halloween, wields an Smith & Wesson 66 "Non Gun". He uses it in the library to fire at Leslie Mancuso/Vernon three times (he misses all of them but is still able to force Vernon to duck).
