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
Anyone who loves (or even likes) horror films, and in particular, the slasher film, should check out this excellent documentary. Loving put together by Calum Waddell and Naomi Holwill of High Rising Productions, it's informative and at times, tongue in cheek. A lot of the time, these kind of things take the form of critics and people you've probably never heard of, analysing the films being talked about, and can be hard to watch for the average man on the street. Slice And Dice caters for everyone by talking to actors, actresses, directors, etc who are all fans of these films themselves. Do yourselves a favour, and catch Slice And Dice: The Slasher Film Forever as soon as you can, you won't regret it. The film has been getting great reviews everywhere it's been shown, and will arrive on DVD in the UK in the coming months. P.S. "reviews" should be done by people who have actually seen something, and not by someone who hasn't seen it, and warning people off because they have a problem with the filmmakers.
