I really don't understand the love for Intruder. It just felt too amateurish.
Man, so many great ones up there... I had to go with Intruder.
I hear ya. I like Intruder, it had a bunch of good elements to it, I love the grocery store idea, but it could have been done just a bit better.
Had to go with The Prowler but I love nearly every movie on that list. Tough choice.
:lol: :lol: Nice avatar DrHerbertWest!
Child's Play. I think Chucky deserves to be remembered as one of the great slashers of the 80s/early 90s and not for Seed.
the KNB brutal effects creates a fanbase, not to mention the evil dead alumni.............
it was a straight to video release...., not to my knowledge did it have a theatrical release.....
Another opinion here that this was a VERY tough vote, as many on that list are among my all-time favorites. However, I am going with Madman. I absolutely love that movie and think that it has some of the best atmosphere among all of the slashers and a fantastic intimidating killer. Not to mention the greatest theme song ever!
Terror Train. I always have fun watching it. Years ago, I used to pop in my trusty VHS all the time!
THE PROWLER is one of my favorites.It's solidly acted,well scored and has some of Tom Savini's best effects.Add to that,it wasn't put out by a major studio,so it didn't have it's graphic mayhem blunted by studio interference.
intruder by far
Hard to choose. Slasher films don't tend to truly stand out to me. To be a success they have to follow a formula, and if they do that, then they all tend to be much of a muchness.
I went for My Bloody Valentine, but it really could have been any here. Thumbs up to Cheerleader Camp though. Perhaps not as sleazy as it could/should have been, but it's fun enough.
Within an awesome list of lovely great slasher films, child's play just doesn't fit...
but has 3 votes. ... boggles the mind................:lol:
just ban me already...please :lol:
child's play is a fun film though, but just doesn't fit the mold...
Here are some more choices I either forgot or didn't fit on the list.
The House on Sorority Row
Slumber Party Massacre
Come on Ash, Cheerleader Camp!!!
Yeah I know, It's already been mentioned though.
Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers
A bad, but funny slasher with a homicidal do-gooder and plenty of gore. I love the in-jokes at F13th, ANOES and TCM.
I love MADMAN, it's just a cool little backwoods boogeyman film that managed to breathe new life into an already tired (even in the eighties) genre. The acting isn't great and it's a little corny, but it's creepy, gory ,and suspenseful. I also liked the following:
SLEEPAWAY CAMP (who wears short shorts ?)
HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW
MY BLOODY VALENTINE ( I'd like it a lot more if I could see an uncut version)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME (wish to hell they would release a dvd with the original theme music, not the ROLLER BOOGIE soundtrack on the dvd that's out now)
