Cunningham? Craven? Carpenter? Savini?
25 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

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.....
