how bout the1982 slasher type film silent rage with chuck norris?
Is that the one where
the villain, in a typical horror film moment, pops up out of the well right before the end credits?
Thanks! I caught the end of that film on the Spanish channel a few months back and have been wondering which Chuck Norris film it was ever since.
I was rather impressed with THE INITIATION
Gotta watch The Slayer. Continential released it years ago in a huge as VHS box with Fred Olen Ray's slasher film Scalps.
Which is one of the worst films and score ever to hit dvd.
I have seen The Slayer mentioned quite a bit. Is it worth the purchase? If so where can it be picked up?
Scalps is worth it just to listen to the always entertaining Olen Ray commentary and hear what a nightmare it was to actually do the film.
The Slayer has a few good moments, but ultimately it's quite boring and not a lot even really happens in the movie. I have the R2 Vipco DVD, and the transfer is pretty terrible.
Am I alone in thinking "House on Sorority Row" was an understated classic of the genre.
Anyone else agree?
No, you're not alone. It's a great little film.
Criminally underrated. I love it!
Ok, just because I know nobody is going to mention it, I'd like to give my vote to Valentine, the 2001 Denise Richards-starring slasher.
It's one of the best post-Scream slashers, even though no one wants to admit it, and if you want a glossy, "high-class" slasher that is neither dumb nor self-referential and "funny", then Valentine is a great choice.
There, I said it.
No-one mentioned Pranks aka The Dorm that Dripped Blood. It wasn't great by a long shot, though. Also Silent Scream and Welcome to Arrow Beach. The House that Screamed could also be considered a slasher, can't it?
Oh, and these:
- Mountaintop Motel Massacre
- Motel Hell
- Criminally Insane
- Blood Diner
- New York Ripper
- Blood Cult
- Revenge (sequel to Blood Cult)... is this available anywhere?
I'm looking for more to check out. Does any one have any recommendations? Or have I pretty much found the only good ones in existence? Thanks in advance.[/QUOTE]
Check out Pieces w/Christopher George.
Um, that's the purpose of this thread: to recommend good slasher films to people who want to see more but don't know where to start. The thread is full of good recommendations.
Can't believe I forgot to mention Cheerleader Camp before now. It's another one that gets a big recommendation from me. Extremely fun, and it has one hell of a nice ending.
Wow, I can't believe I missed that one either. It is a lot of fun. I second this recommendation.
I would recomend this to someone i disliked immensely.What a horrid little film...:lol: The country/western singers were the best part.
It's been available on DVD for over four years now from VCI. There's even a commentary track and some other footage.
Agreed. That one was painful for me to watch. I tried to watch it for maybe six or seven nights in a row and I kept falling asleep. I eventually made it through, though it was mighty painful to do so. I should have just stopped on the first night... it really wasn't worth it at all.
