The question has been asked repeatedly since the video nasty scare of the 1980s (and most likely even well before that), and nobody (especially the filmmakers involved) has felt compelled to answer it: who exactly are slasher movies for?

Further confusing the issue is Stag Night, a very minor entry in the horror canon that nonetheless inspires you to ask troubling questions about the necessity of the genre itself and its place in the cultural landscape. Basically, you can’t help but wonder whether or not you’re supposed to like the people that are being killed, or whether you’re supposed to be cheering for the largely mute »
