    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
     
  6. 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. :eek:

    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.

    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? :D 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. :D

    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.

    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.
