Scream and Scream Again: A History of the Slasher Film (2000)

*** (out of 4)

Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper, John Carpenter, Gunnar Hansen, Robert Englund, Sean Cunningham, Tom Savini and William Lustig are just a few of the famous faces that appear in this documentary, which covers the history of slasher movies.,

If you're a fan of horror movies then you're probably like me and will watch any sort of documentary on the subject. With that said, if you're expecting the "history" of horror movies out of this documentary then you're going to be disappointed because a better title would have been "A History of Mainstream Horror Movies."

I say that because the majority of the running time is devoted to HALLOWEEN, THE Texas CHAN SAW MASSACRE, Friday THE 13TH, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and SCREAM. These are the films that get the majority of the attention and most of the other known slashers are either never mentioned or we just get a look at their posters.

So, yes the title of this is rather misleading but if you're a fan of the genre then I'm sure you'll enjoy what interviews are here. The stories we're told aren't anything we haven't already heard countless times before but we're horror fans so we love this type of stuff.
