    The makers of Mother's Day should apologize and switch careers to something more their speed. Like accounting, or gift wrapping.

    Even those jobs require some element of talent though.

    I have to give a shout out to Girls Nite Out. So full of cheesy goodness, I love it. But it's best if you've had a few beers first, or whatever substance you prefer.

    I agree with Rhett, you MUST pick up Madman. Aside from halloween and a few of the Friday movies, absolutely the best slasher ever!!

    Bad news: Final Exam sucks.
    Good news: It's owned by the mob :D

    Another "slasher" worth mentioning: Brian De Palma's Dressed To Kill.

    I'll third Madman. I picked it up some time ago on a total whim and thought it was a lot of fun.

    I can't believe it's taken this long, to be honest. Ridiculous.

    With the way Sony has been raping MGM's back catalogue of newly released DVD's lately..I'd be shocked if they even include a trailer.
     
  10. The original Toolbox Murders was pretty good.

    ~ I'll second Madmad
    ~ Halloween 1 and 2 are required viewing
    ~ Scream - An homage to all that is slasher, avoid the sequels
    ~ Friday the 13th parts 1, 4 and 6
    ~ Ok this one is a reach, but Cobra with Sylvester Stallone. The main bad guy is a slasher afterall :)
    ~ George A. Romero's Martin. Not your typical slasher but could be considered an off-shoot of the genre.

    If I think of any more not mentioned here I'll post them later.

    Madman gets much love from me. One of the all-time best. I love it.

    And someday, Rhett and I will pen the sequel. The rest of Madman Marz's story MUST be told.

    I didn't care much for The Majorettes, but I didn't think it was terrible. I like Russo, but I'll never forgive him for NOTLD '30. That was just... awful.

    I never had a problem with him till that...while probably not fair, it tainted everything he touched after that in my eyes.:fire:

    Sorry for derailing the thread...carry on.:D

    I really like all three Sleepaway Camp movies. I'm not fond of the one-liners, but they don't go crazy with them.

    The third movie is definitely not as good as the first two, but they're all entertaining.

    I'm going to have to do a little investigation Madman Marz. Lots of good suggestions, many I've seen before. Thanks!

    10 TO MIDNIGHT is pretty good. A Bronson slasher, violent and actually clever
