Old School Slash
5 May 2019 | by PCT1970See all my reviews

I revisited this series in anticipation for the upcoming third season titled "Solstice". Martin has created a superior thriller/slasher anthology series. He was inspired in two ways which is evident. The first was inspiration from "AHS" with the use of individual storylines and the use of as many actors as possible from previous seasons. The second was he wanted to create a series using three components of which are; a contemporary murder mystery, the old school Agatha Christie style of solving the mystery and killers from classic slasher films such as, "Halloween". The results are bone chilling. This series has excellent direction, cinematography, special effects, writing, settings, costume, score and acting. All of the actors involved deliver superlative portrayals of horrified, unassuming, mysterious, duplicitous characters and so on. Season one titled "The Executioner" revolves around the return of Sarah Bennett who moves back to her hometown after the murder of her parents 30 years earlier by a man Tom Winston who was dressed as an executioner and is holding the newborn Sarah in a rocking chair when police arrive in episode one. He is now in prison. Upon her return the murder spree begins with a copycat killer dressed as The Executioner. Sarah seeks counsel from Tom and he suggests two things. The murder victims have committed one of the seven deadly sins and not everyone in town are as they seem on the outside. Everyone in town has committed a sin in one way or another which widens the list of suspects. This is what creates a masterful who-dun-it style to the season and makes sense that the murders match the appropriate punishment for the sin committed. Sarah then uses this knowledge in her pursuit of revealing who the killer is. My favorite episode is 5 when Alison interviews The Executioner and he explains his reasoning for the murders. It is an edge of your seat scene and it took some serious b*lls on Alison's part to interview the killer. Season two titled "Guilty Party" revolves around a group of camp counselors; Peter, Dawn, Noah, Andi and Susan who committed a heinous act 5 years earlier at a former summer camp by terryfying one of their members Talvinder in a ritualistic form of retribution which results in murder. She was murdered for being a manipulative individual who slept around. Her body is then buried at the campsite. The counselors learn of a future real estate deal involving a resort being built on the former campsite which forces the group to return and retrieve the body in order to move it or jeopardize their hidden secret. They return in the middle of the winter only to learn they can not locate the body and also encounter another group of individuals who have established a commune. Soon enough one by one the counselors are being picked off by a killer wearing a parka with a hood making it impossible to view the killer's face. Eventually we learn why the killer is hell bent on vengeance which was over a suicide by a young man who was framed for Talvinder's murder. He left a note asking for justice or rather punishment for the responsible parties.The killer is revealed in a stunning manner which is almost reminiscent of the relationship between Jason Vorhees and his mother in, "Friday The 13th". My favorite episode in season two is episode 8 when the true killer is revealed. In season two one counselor survives, but I have a feeling punishment is ultimately delivered. The plots are clever, intelligent, mysterious, gritty, graphic, violent, bloody, spine-tingling, jolting, chilling and can cause sleepless nights. Netflix acquired the rights to "Slasher" after the first season and the series has maintained it's integrity. This is most likely due to having Martin on board. This series does an outstanding job creating a contemporary slasher/thriller series which embodies the classic slasher/thriller film tones, themes and human killers. This is a superb slasher/ thriller anthology and is at the top in it's genre.
