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
So someone who does not appear to have seen the documentary in question appears to have spent time on Xmas Day abusing something out of a clear, personal vendetta for the makers. That is dedication at least. While SLICE AND DICE does not have Craven, Carpenter or Savini involved, it was done on little budget and contains some great speakers all the same. I doubt you can claim Tobe Hooper, Corey Feldman (who killed Jason!), Patrick Lussier, Joe Cardone (The Slayer), Jeffrey Reddick (creator of Final Destination who speaks at length about it being 'a slasher without the slasher') and Felissa Rose are not slasher film royalty. Anyway I have seen this and thought it was a smashing documentary. Its funny, paced well and looks good. Why not judge for yourself when it finally comes out on DVD?
