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
Wherfore art thou? How is it possible to do a documentary on slasher films without their presence? No Kane Hodder? No Robert Englund? And those guys will appear in ANYTHING! Without the participation of the 'movers and shakers' who defined these films, all you're left with is a constant stream of people who's (for the most part) only relation to the films is the same as you or I. They watched them.
For a more thorough examination of the genre I'd recommend 'Gone To Pieces' - not without it's faults but at least it strives to do something to place the films within the context of the times.
Please god, won't somebody make this man stop.....
