Synopsis by Mark Deming

One of the biggest heavy metal success stories of the new millennium, Slipknot's nihilistic lyrics, abrasive blend of guitars, hip-hop beats, punishing electronic textures, and bizarre image (including matching jump suits and elaborate masks) quickly established them as a band who didn't look or sound like anyone else in the business. Slipknot: Behind the Mask -- Unauthorized is a documentary which looks at the band's early days, their rise to fame, and what they mean to their fans (whom they address as "maggots"). Due to licensing restrictions, Slipknot: Behind the Mask -- Unauthorized features no music or performances by Slipknot.
