Mary Beth McDonough,
Kay together with her husband,her brother and her sister in law fly out to an isolated house on a remote island for a holiday.Since her childhood Kay suffered terrible nightmares featuring a malevolent creature called 'the slayer'.Soon after their arrival Kay realizes that she has been there before in her dreams and she becomes convinced that 'the slayer' is ready to stalk and kill them all."The Slayer" is a pretty good horror film.It predates "A Nightmare on Elm Street" by several years and shares some notable similarities.The film is very atmospheric and the locations sets are excellent.The island is rugged and windswept dotted with creepy looking ruins.The acting is pretty good and there is enough gore to satisfy fans of low-budget horror.The killings are well staged and suitably gruesome.The scene where the woman gets a pitchfork through her chest is pretty nasty and memorable.The final appearance of 'the slayer' is grimly effective."The Slayer" is often trashed by some horror fans,but it's surely better than most of the crap being churned out today.Give this film a chance and you won't be disappointed.
