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.

I don't get the negative review and can only imagine that it was written by somebody who hasn't seen the film and has cast only a cursory glance over the synopsis. All of the interviewees have direct connections to movies featured in the documentary.
Slice And Dice is an entertaining and informative film which skips along at a fair pace and the interviewees come across as enjoying themselves.
And there were a few films mentioned which I hadn't seen, so had to seek out after the screening.
A great addition for anyone with even a passing interest in horror movies.
