A celebration of slasher cinema - from PSYCHO to the present day, with a focus on highlighting many of the genre's forgotten cult classics, deconstructing how to survive a slice and dice movie and meditating upon why it is almost always a final girl and rarely a final guy... this is a documentary which is designed for both the biggest fan of "mad maniac" movies and the person who may only have seen HALLOWEEN and SCREAM. Either way, this is a documentary that proves the SLASHER FILM is truly FOREVER! Written by
A brilliant trip down memory lane of the Slasher Genre
I was one of the lucky few who managed to get a sneak preview of this brilliant documentary. As soon as it starts it has you captivated as it churns out classic after classic of a Genre that has been scaring us for years. The interviews are done superbly and as Ash has already said it is almost like you are sitting there with them. The interview with Corey Feldman is one of my personal favourites having grown up with a lot of his movies and after all he is the boy who kicked Jason's butt. All the classic movies are represented in this well structured and well directed trip down memory lane. The soundtrack is also brilliant and gels in nicely to the documentary.
This is highly recommended and if you haven't already seen it rush to buy the DVD when it is out as you won't be disappointed.
All in all Brilliant job by Calum and his team.
