Sometimes it’s hard being a slasher fan. Even among many horror fans, slasher movies are considered to be the bottom of the barrel of horror movies. The general consensus is it doesn’t take much effort to make a slasher movie. What do you n
eed? A final girl, a killer with a mask, and a bunch of nubile teens ready to get hacked up? Well, I would argue that slasher films are something more than that. Something special. Something unique. In the genre of horror movies, slasher films are the “comfort food”. The double cheeseburger from McDonalds or that stuffed crust pizza that you just have to have from Pizza Hut. Are they nutritious? No, not in the least. But they serve a special craving that nothing else will fill. I’m glad to have you, readers of this website to share in my love of this guilty pleasure. May there be many, many years of delicious slasher movies to come.
