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.

I will post videos on each review if I have a digital version of the feature. I will always try and post a killing clip, but in certain cases, due to copyrights, I can only post trailers

  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.


  7. I actually meant this movie.


    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?

  23. hi, i love the site. i’m starting a site of my own and would love to chat.


  24. Howdy! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that
    would be okay. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

  25. ‘Ello! ‘Ello, Mate! It’s your friendly neighborhood “K” dropping by again with another recommendation!
    Had you seen Discopath (2014)? It’s a 70s/80s slasher/giallo throwback by Canada that I think should be right up your alley! See it if you had the chance, buddy! It ain’t perfect but it is cool!

  26. Second title listed “5 Dead on a Crimson CANVAS” not Campus, just looking out.

  27. Hey! Love the site. Was wondering if you have seen any of the newer slashers like Dont Go to the Reunion, HazMat, or Blood Widow? If not, you should check them out.

  28. Alexander Gretil

    Hi Luisito. i´ve been reading your reviews for quite a time now, and i noticed that in your list you didn`t include the ridiculously obscure “Hanging Heart” from 1983. It is directed by Jimmy Lee.

    • Hi Alexander, Thanks for keeping an eye on the site. As for Hanging Heart, I have a Polish VHS, but i didn’t think it was a slasher when I saw it years ago. Should I watch it again?

      • Alexander Gretil

        Hi, just re-watched it and i think i should be considered a slasher. It has a killer (on a costume that is a lot like the one from Cherry Falls), some POV shots and they even include the “have sex and die” rule. It`s only issue was the low body count. I say give it a go and tell me what do you think.

      • Hi Alexander I most definitely will do and thanks very much :) I’ll post it soon :)

  29. Thank you so much for your efforts. Wondering if you know the german-american post-Scream Slasher The Pool? One of my favs of the 2000s….

  30. Hi there. i love you reviews since i`ve seen a lot of the movies you review here. So i`m here to recomend the movie “Porkchop” from 2010. One of the weidest 80`s homenage i have ever seen (try finding a slasher filck with a perv robot).

  31. Alexander Gretil

    Hi Luis, it is Alex here again. Have you seen Nightof the Clown 1998? I found about it while searching for the rare La Noche Del Payaso (1993). Are they the same movie?

    • Hi bud, yes I’ve seen both of them, they’re not the same movie. La Noche is a Mexican movie and it was never released in English, the other one is from the director of Evil Night and it’s pretty crappy tbh

      • Hola Luis, as the slasher expert, I had to see if you could help. There is someone looking for a slasher flick, but it is of unique kills. It had a guy killed by being locked in a room with a snake, one boiled in a hot tub, and another impaled by a ceiling mirror while tied to a bed (his girlfriend just went to the restroom, and he was unable to scream). There may be a few more kills, but that was all he remembered. They were all in the same house, and only 1 person survived (a girl). At the end, the survivor went to a funeral, and it is insinuated (by a smirk) that she was possibly the killer. Do you know what this movie could be, because I have run through so many databases and never came up with the answer. If not, do you know where else I should look? Gracias por todo.


      • Hi buddy – Sounds like Killer Instinct! Been a while since I’ve seen it, but people locked in a house and a guy killed by a glass ceiling sounds like that film. Please check the review, you’ll find it there :)

      • Just read my review again and I mention the snake. Killer Instinct is what you’re looking for buddy. :)

  32. Hola Luisito, first, let me say you are very generous to help me, and especially so fast. You, my friend, did what quite a few horror experts, myself, and others movie buffs, could not do, which is to solve this longstanding mystery. Your knowledge of slasher flicks is unparalleled. You sir, are the undisputed king of horror. The time and effort you have put into cataloging these gems is amazing; your love of the genre shines through. Keep doing what you are doing, as it means a lot to a lot of people. Proof one person can change the world. If you ever need any help identifying a film that you cannot remember, which I highly doubt you will, I would be honored to help. Vaya con dios, mi amigo.


  33. Hey nice list. I am 43 and surprised you did not have without warning in there. It was the 1st of its kind alien slasher flick from 1980. It starred a very young David Caruso and had other good actors. Very b movie, but was a classic to us U.S. slasher heads. Peace

    • Thanks Steve, good to meet you. Yes, I know it well! Unfortunately, I have missed a few that I will update as I go. I am surprised that I forgot Warning. I really quite like the film and anything with Cameron Mitchell is always worth a look. I’ll try and review it here soon :)

  34. Oh my god….i tried remembering this one particular movie i have watched 2 or 3 years ago, but it is really really hard to remember the title. I scrolled down this page carefully but i’m sure this movie isn’t in the list. It’s about a masked killer killing women using sickles, and the masked killer’s identity is revealed at the end of the movie(It was a lady who don’t like certain group of women to have fun and dare to get naked anytime…i’m not so sure about this part though). Ok I am a male, so i will tell you the part i remembered the most. There is a kissing scene between a very fat guy and a girl, and the fat guy is killed. Can anyone please help me??? Thanks a lot. I remember the tagline of the DVD cover is something like “Now you still dare to go naked?”

    • If Luisito does not mind, @MDP, I might be able to help you. The information needed to find it would be when you saw it, when it came out, where you got the dvd, if it was american, and if there are any specific kills, names, plot, town, etc. , you can remember. Also, what was on the cover of the dvd, and what colors was it?


  35. Hi luisito, first off I wanted to say this website is amazing and I have really gotten back into slasher movies thanks to a few of the titles you llisted here that were just amazing that I had either not seen or have just been introduced to! Bloodrage, Curtains, La Residencia, and of course the guilty pleasure Iced were all among some of the rad slashers I have been able to find copies of. One question I had was if you completely take out the giallo sector of slashers for your list. I saw you have bloody moon on here so I figured there must be some giallo’s you would consider. A couple very creepy and very slasheresque movies I was thinking would fit in nicely with your list is “a blade in the dark” and “terror at the opera”.. I noticed argento hasn’t had any movies in your list but those 2 films are so good I thought you might’ve forgotten about them. Anyways, awesome site and keep up the good work!!

    • Hi Brandon, thanks so much for the message. I will, eventually, start listing giallos, just that I haven’t got round to doing so yet. I love Argento and Tenebrae is one of my favourite films ever. Blade in the Dark has some memorable scenes too, I’m also a big fan of Too Beautiful To Die, but I write lists of the film’s that I am going to add and I haven’t got round to them…. Yet! Even though Bloody Moon is from Spain, I think Franco was ripping off slashers more than Giallos. He was always keen to jump on a bandwagon. You could say the same about Absurd, I guess

  36. Hi luisito, i found it. After thinking so hard of course. The title is Girls Gone Dead. You might want to add it to the list. :) It is unrated though.

  37. Alexander Gretil

    Have you seen the proto-slasher Poor White Trash Part II a.k.a. Scum of the Earth from 1974? I watched It recently and this movie is really ahead of his time with his camp setings, decent gore and sleazy tone, kind of similar to (also ahead of his time) Tower of Evil 1972.

  38. Hi Luisitojoaquin,
    Meaby You can help me. Do you remember the horror may VHS standard pre-1997 history – a group of friends coming to the house / hotel. I remember a scene where the park wants to do “their playing” with the bonding, so the guy bind his pleasant to bed and gag. The girl is a dark-haired, tanned. When a boy goes to get whipped cream and “strawberry”, our killer appears he looks like removed from the Texan massacre. He goes around the room and hides (the window in the closet do not remember). Boy comes back happy and she tries to scream, but she is gagged and fails to warns him.

    As for my film is now what seems to me (so it’s not 100%) that I remember are:

    – Standard shlasher with young people in the background, there was some young people
    – The action takes place in a bungalow, it is possible that the lake
    – If the action has taken place during the summer / autumn

    Unfortunately, the above information is not 100% certain because the first session, I had the almost 20 years ago. : /


  39. Alexander Gretil

    did you know there is a sequel to Small Town Massacre? It`s called Dead Kids 2

    It was shot with an 8mm video camcorder so I wouldn`t expect it to be any good (I mean, just look at Day of the Reaper)

  40. Hey, luisito! Now that I know the secrets in posting comments on this site, I believe it’s my-our sole duty to give a few recommendations!

    Sports themed slashers? Try Murderdrome and watch rollerderby gals go wheel on wheel with a demonic skater from hell! How about something weird? You can add Little Erin Merryweather and see the mystery reveal itself halfway into the film!

    There’s also Deadly Sins (1995), Entrance (2011), Sleepwalker (1983/1984 short), and Pan Man!

  41. Hey dude, you’ve probably heard it enough already, but seriously well done on your list. I’m from Australia and I’m a mad horror film collector, big ups in unearthing titles from oz, such as Cassandra, coda and early frost. Didn’t even know they existed, Australia’s rep in slashers has been very poor so this is reassuring my faith in my home country. Also im mad keen to read your review of Charlie’s Farm when you get time. Decent competitor for Australia’s first slasher villain and the slasher genre in general. Keep it sinister homie 👍🍺

    • Thanks buddy! In fact there are a lot of fairly good Slashers from Australia and I think that in a way many of them are well worth a look! Can’t wait to review Charlie’s Farm. I have it ready to go!!

      • Awesome dude, got a lot of respect for you 👍 Honestly we have very shitty distribution companies in oz, so a lot of our classic horror titles get overlooked and get pretty shitty releases..no shit man, you’ll get a better version of an Aussie horror film from overseas. But there is still hope here in oz from extremely dedicated fans of the genre, the mad men and women at monster pictures australia are bringing the gore and grit back to a bunch of uneducated fools haha. Also bro I own this dvd released from ‘Mondo Macabro’ called Aswang the Spanish made horror fest about that fucked up vampire with a long ass tongue that feeds on new born babies! I honestly have never seen a fair review for that underrated gem, I know it ain’t slasher but would love to hear your verdict on it bro. I hope you get a kick out of charlies farm too, it is a movie you’ll talk about 😊

  42. I want to ask: do you have a strict rule on buying VHS/DVD for movies, or just wherever you can find them, because I’m not sure how rare it is, but there is a version of Alice Sweet Alice floating around on Youtube if you have a hard time getting your hands on it. It looks good video quality wise and I thought I would let you know before it gets taken down

    • Hi Lauren! Firstly, thanks for your comment – I try to buy them all and I actually do own a beaten-up copy of Communion, but hey, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with watching a video on YouTube, so I’ll give it a look!!

  43. Was wondering if you could help me. For years, I have been trying to find a particular horror that I saw when I was younger. The problem is I cannot remember the name of the film. The only thing I can remember about the film is that one of the girls name was Melissa and she was wearing a blue dress in one of the scenes where the slasher was trying to kill her in a house. It might have been a house party or something going on. I believe she escaped into a garage but I cannot remember anything beyond that. PLEASE HELP! THAT HAS BEEN PLAYING OVER AND OVER IN MY HEAD FOR YEARS!

    • Hi ya – i Konieczny what you mean! There’s nothing worse that that -,which period is it from?? There’s a garage stalking sequence in Slumber Party Massacre and if you look at the tags at the bottom of each review find on my site the tag ‘slasher in the house’ and that may bring up your film. If not, I’m not sure. Night Screams or Happy Birthday to Me? If it’s an 80s Slasher it’ll be easier to locate
