Abstract:

"The slasher movie is the most reviled but successful of horrors sub genres. Taking its cue from Hitchcock, grind-house movies, and the gory Italian giallo thrillers of the 1970s, slasher movies brought a new high in cinematic violence and suspense to mainstream cinema. For six bloody years (1978-1984) the golden age of slashers cinema screens and video stores were stalked by homicidal maniacs with murder and mayhem on their minds. "MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" style "MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt" The Slasher Movie Book details the subgenres surprising beginnings, revels in its g(l)ory days, and discusses its recent resurgence. Packed with reviews of the best (and worst) slasher movies and illustrated with an extensive collection of distinctive and often graphic color poster artwork from around the world, this book also looks at the political, cultural, and social influences on the slasher movie and its own effect on other film genres.
