A-Z of Reviews and Full List of Slasher Movies

List of Slasher Films

Ok so just in case you are wondering, I am going to tell you a bit about a SLASH above and the types of films that we will feature here. For me a slasher movie is a simple formula that often gets confused by many critics. At a SLASH above we consider John Carpenter’s Halloween to be the template. All the films that I will feature will have a masked/unseen/disfigured killer (or sometimes multiple) stalking a set of victims. For me, Final Destination is not a slasher film. Yes there is an unstoppable force that is slaughtering teenagers, but here we will focus only on the traditional trappings of the cycle.

You will notice that I have not listed A Nightmare on Elm Street here amongst these titles. For that matter I have left out Shocker, Pledge Night and Head Hunter et al. Why? Well for me, to be a slasher movie, you need to have a killer that is armed with a blade or weapon of some kind that lurks and stalks his/her intended prey. I am not saying that the Freddy series or Candyman for that matter are not slasher flicks, but their overuse of supernatural ability makes them more akin to ghost/monster genres. In fact, Freddy Krueger is a fine example. Yes, he has a bladed glove and disfigured face like so many of our conventional maniacal nut jobs. However his methods of slaughter are so creative and excessive that he transcends the stereotype that this website is going to focus on. For me it’s the method of murder that makes a ‘slasher’ movie.

So does that mean we can’t have a supernatural slasher? Well, no – of course not. I have listed here, amongst others The Bogeyman, Bloodbeat, Playroom and Girl’s School Screamers. The killers in these films all boast some ghost-like abilities, however the net result is pretty much the same: – a killer using POV shots and a bladed weapon to stalk a group of unsuspecting victims. So what we have below is a list of slasher movies that fit the template that Halloween and Friday the 13thcemented. I have included titles like The Dead Pit because despite crossing deeply in to zombie territory, they include enough of the trappings to be classified as ‘inspired’ by the aforementioned titles.

I will continue to update the list as I go, because I still have tonnes of flicks that I haven’t managed to add thus far. I have watched each and every one (how it pains me to think!) and will slowly work my way through reviewing them. There are one or two here that may be debatable (is Playroom a slasher?) but I can confirm that you will not be left disappointed if you give any of these a try.

Some of these will be reviewed under their Spanish title as that’s the copy I own.

  1. awesome list mate,keep adding as im tracking all these down one way or another! love the reviews and site,ALL THE BEST!

    • Thanks Darren, I will work my way through them – some may be very hard to find nowadays, but I think they’ll probably all get a chance on DVD at some point. I guess the most fun part is hunting them down though!!! Thanks for your comment and have a great day :)

      • cheers mate,ive not long ordered a ton of these newer ones off amazon dirt cheap.i love hearing bout slashers that i didnt know existed.have a great day yourself.i will keep in touch and share my thoughts on some of the movies,kind regards!

  2. Though I don’t really agree with you on your view of that a slasher has to be fleshy and holding a knife, and with that discarding at least half or a third of the slasher populous, I do dig yer list! this can help me keep up with my reviews! Thanks mate! and keep the listing going!

  3. Kuku the Killer Clown (2003) – can i ask for more info on this one? Seems like a joke. Does this movie exist?

  4. I just saw One Hell of a Christmas. Um, maybe you can shed some light on that one being a slasher, cuz i saw more supernatural on it than Slash-antics?

  5. you do kno there is a third i know what yo did last summer

    • Hi yes, of course. I haven’t put every single chapter in a series so as to save the list from being cluttered. However I will add them when I review them as I have with Friday the 13th 2 and 3 etc. thanks

  6. What about The Last Hotel a.k.a. Scary Hotel in the Mountains.

    http://lastmotelthemovie.com/

  7. I actually meant this movie.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1974395/

    But now that you mention Motel Hell I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

    • That looks interesting, but another guy said that it doesn’t exist – not sure what to think.

      Motel Hell is the one I was talking about. I haven’t seen it, but my friend says it’s not a stalk and slasher. I might but a copy and see. Will let you know!

      • Motel Hell’s sorta a slasher. There isn’t much stalk and killing going on there. hell, I don’t even know if we could count three guys having their neck snapped by a noose all the same time is slasher material. But it has the same build of the sub-genre, and most of the actual murders took place at the last act.

  8. Rosemarys Killer73

    Dudes checkout this Crime of slasher cinema…..basically it’s, er, how can I explain it, oh yeh shit! Admittedly I do love all slashers, theres always something there to make you chuckle, to be mad about or to go to sleep. hahahaha so grab some booze (alot) and watch…YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! Deadly Detour aka Goatman Murders directed by Mike O’Mahony.

  9. What do you think of the movie “White of The Eye (1987)” ?

  10. Rosemarys Killer73

    Hahaha yeh, how much was the disc? 2p, thats too much!! Actually going through all the salshers for a new book me and a colleague are writing, which is going to be a definitive guide, nearly 600-800 titles to get through…and it probably won’t stop there! Just got Phantom Brother, Dead Girls and New York Centrefold massacre!!! we are about 150 films in, so alot to go and alot to watch, ALL slashers good or bad eh. sites like these are an excellent reference points, keep up the good work dude.

  11. darren burrows

    let us know how the books going, would love too see that!

  12. But where is Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Beginning, and where is Peeping Tom and Stepfather + Deep Red and Bay of Blood?
    Good list by the way, I’m making a book about all slasher films on the world and that is the best list.

    • Hi Jack – Thanks for your comment! Do you also notice no Wrong Turn, Hostel, Chaos etc. Whilst Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a slasher of type, this site focuses on Halloween and its imitators/influences. Stepfather and Peeping Tom are possibles, but please keep in mind the list is not complete (I think I wrote it there) Bay of Blood et al are Giallos and although I have reviewed a few, I’m going to add them slowly, so as not to distort the focus from the Halloween style of slasher

  13. Okay, thank you.

  14. Oh yes, how about A Nightmare on Elm Street???

  15. I personally think Wrong Turn is certainly a slasher, sort of a more updated Just Before Dawn. It’s a great one at that

    What about High Tension? Amazing movie and I’d classify it as a slasher

    Also missing is Sweatshop, have you seen that one? Not great by any means, but it has some great gore and insanely annoying characters

    • I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion on what is a slasher – if you want it to be a slasher – then its totally cool by me! To be honest I haven’t seen Wrong Turn for a while and may need to watch it again – Personally, I just have this thing about multiple killers and supernatural stuff – I try to keep them as close to Halloween as possible. But hey, if you say it’s a slasher I am happy to agree!! High Tension, believe it or not, I haven’t got round to watching – I have been too busy going through all these oldies for the reviews. I will most definitely though and post it here when I have!I have heard great things!

      Sweatshop I own and have watched, I just didn’t put it on the list yet – As I said there, the list is far from complete, but I will keep trying to add them as I go!!

  16. RosemarysKiller73

    Yeh I agree with both, Wrong Turn is technically not a slasher in terms of Halloween, Friday the 13th, The Prowler etc, there are so many elements to a slasher, so many sub genres and very hard to pin point exactly what makes a slasher a slasher, there’s backwoods killers, faceless killers, whodunits, giallos, krimi’s the list goes on huh!!! as you know i am doing the ultimate slasher guide book and it’s very hard to select the films, so we’ve gone all out with all the sub genres, over 900!! But like you say everyone is entitled to there own take on a slasher flick. Sweatshop is a gorefest and fun, but not one of the best hey. Keep slashing dudes……..

  17. I didn’t mean to nitpick your list, more of just giving suggestions if you hadn’t seen them.

    I sent you an email last night, I’m beginning work on a printed slasher devoted fanzine and would love your input. Would you be interested in writing an article about the “rarest” 80s slashers for it?

    As far as every reader of this site goes, I’d love some contributors.

    • Yeah sure and absolutely no biggie on the list, I put in there when I first launched the site over a year ago and it’s far from complete and – as the other guy said, people have different opinions on what is a slasher. I watched last night, Freddy Vs Jason. I have absolutely no idea how people can consider Freddy’s murder techniques to allow him to be a slasher villain – he’s basically a warlock! But most people swear that film’s a slasher. – So it’s all up to the fan I think

      As for writing something on rare slashers, I’d be more than happy to. I’ll check my mail in a while -

      Thanks again

  18. You mentioned in one of your reviews New Blood 1988. That doesn’t happen to be Hollywood’s New Blood (1988) is it?!

    • Hi mate – could you show me which review and i’ll tell you which film I was referring to as I’m not quite sure which one – Thanks

      • the one you’ve made for Maniac Cop. You’ve mentioned a title there called “New Blood”. The reason I’m asking you this is cuz i found and reviewed a title called Hollywood’s New Blood, thought you might try it and see what you think of it.

      • Hi mate I actually meant the Jason sequel when I mentioned The New Blood in that paragraph, but I have seen Hollywood New Blood back in the nineties, I felt it was quite a smart movie. I would like to see it again mate actually – I only have a VHS though :(

  19. hey buddy! I made a shout out to you on my blog’s birthday! Feel free to drop by any time~

  20. s always changing annd shifting, and nnew things are added aall the time.
    Thhe acceptable kind of games cheat are those blend
    of buttons that you’re using in a game to gain additional lives, weapons or characters.
    This game can make the player a rocker in an instant
    without even having to learn how to play a guitar.

  21. I’m wondering why people tend to equaate Horror movies with slasher films ,especially when they’re not of the same genre..
    personally , I can’t watch texas chain sawmassacre ,because I know it was based on.

  22. what do you think of the movie Dust Devil (1992)? I keep finding these obscure bodycount flicks but I wonder if you had seen it, from one slasher fan to another?
