“The Wake” (2017): Not Quite Ready to be Memorialized

Published on :

While at first glance it may seem a bit derivative of films like I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Wake (written and directed by, as well as starring, Bryan Brewer), just barely manages to set itself apart from them with an ending that takes a sharp 90 degree turn away from everything that […]

The first few minutes of Slasher.com lay out the course of the movie while the opening credits roll.

Published on :

Ah, the Eighties. Not only did we have cool horror icons like Jason and Freddy, but we were treated to makeup effects and kill gags in horror movies that have become legendary to this day. Mitch Wilson’s supernatural horror flick  Knucklebones takes the viewer back to that long lost age of creepy killers, inventive kills, premarital […]

“The Final Girls” (2015): A Slasher Spoof With Heart

Published on :

In the time since cinematic slashers like Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger had their heyday in the 1980s, we’ve seen plenty of comedic takes on the genre. There’s the satirically dark spins like Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, the more silly raunchiness with Club Dread or the less ambitious referential stab of Scary Movie. Yet, even when the […]

Cropsey May Once Again Stalk The Woods

You utter the name Cropsey and most any hard core slasher fan will immediately shout out the film title The Burning.  Back in 1981 while Micheal Myers and Jason Vorhees  were stealing the gore spotlight, horror maestro Tom Savini created another icon who never actually reached the iconic level he deserved, his name was Cropsey.
