Slasher Movies

A Slasher Movie typically involves a number of teenagers being creatively killed off one-by-one by an extreme psychopath or a supernatural killer often for revenge but sometimes just for fun! Modern Slasher Movies can be fairly light hearted but still often quite shock filled and extremely gory.

Many slasher anti-heroes are now infamous due to the popularity of the genre (and the substantial amount of sequels that slashers spawn), such as Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, Michael Myers from Halloween and Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.

Alfred Hitchcok's Psycho is often cited as the original Slasher Flick and has inspired hundreds of slashers from Dementia 13, Blood Feast and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to the more recent Final Destination and Wrong Turn.

Don't Go in the House - If you do... then don't say we didn't warn you.

Video Nasties taught us a lot of things to "don't" do but some couldn't resist looking in the basement, riding on the late night trains and some were tempted to open the window despite not really knowing which window they were supposed to be wary of. In 1979 the temptation to do what shouldn’t be done arose again with Don't Go in the House, a fairl... Click to read more "Don't Go in the House"

The Cabin in the Woods - If you hear a strange sound outside... have sex.

The Cabin in the Woods is a rarity in modern horror in that it gets a lot right. Directed by Drew Goddard (who also wrote the movie alongside Joss Whedon), it is apparent that his time writing and producing TV was well spent, mastering the art before delving into film. Whedon's influence is also very noticeable within the execution of the film, the... Click to read more "The Cabin in the Woods"
