    Shit, there are tons. And LOL, slashers are fun but dude...MANY can be bad. (Most are pretty bad.) :D

    Anyway, ones I didn't like:

    The Mutilator!!!!
    Friday the 13th, Parts VII and VIII
    Child's Play 3
    FINAL EXAM
    The Forest
    Cutting Class
    Christmas Evil
    He Knows You're Alone (bored me to death!)
    New Year's Evil (I didn't even think this was fun, it was just stupid)
    The Prey (It's quite beautifully filmed, but it too is boring)
    Pieces (I know this is loved by many, it's just not for me.)
    New York Ripper
    Splatter University

    I really hate Scream (1983) and Night Screams. Two of the all time worst slasher movies. I don't actually hate the following couple of titles, but I don't think they are very good either: Savage Weekend, Graduation Day, Christmas Evil, Twisted Nightmare, andThe Deadly Intruder.

    I'd like to see Slaughter High at least once... ;)

    I don't like The Forest. It is amateurish (the editing in some scenes!), slower than a slug, and features a bland cast and killer.

    I also don't care for Silent Madness - I can't really say I hate it, but there just isn't anything good to say about it. Except that it has a cool poster.

    I forgot, I really, REALLY don't like Offerings!

    And thank you for reminding me of Cutting Class, Matt. I like Jill Schoelen, but what a crummy movie!

    I don't like Spliced, and that's a shame since it's the only slasher ever made in Saskatchewan.

    I like the premise but Return To Horror High is just bad.Also the astoundingly-bloodless Shadows Run Black,if it was worth it,it would have to be seen to be believed.Pretty much all of those mentioned had the potential to be great,(I think Slaughter High has several classic slash-scenes,and Offerings' drag-under-the-bed-and-blast-with his-own-shotgun and vicegrip skull crush were entertaining.)Meanwhile,Mutilator is one of my faves of all time.From the spurting gore,to the seaside locale,to Pam's fucking duty roster,its all aces for me.Most seem to hate Phantom Of The Mall:Eric's Revenge,which I am very fond of. Goes to show how different people's tastes run.

    I've never really cared all that much for "Prom Night". I love Jamie Lee Curtis and Canadian horror films from the early 80's, but this one just paled in comparison to "Terror Train", "My Bloody Valentine", "Curtains", "Happy Birthday to Me", etc.

    Cutting Class was pretty lame. Graduation Day had me bored through most of it. Prom Night is very slow and not at the top of my list but I don't think it's miserable to watch. If you're counting Don't Go In The Woods as a slasher, that bored me too.

    Here's a few that I didn't necessarily hate, but felt completely let down after finally seeing them.

    Prom Night
    Curtains (Though the skating scene was pretty neat)
    A Night To Dismember (the horror...the horror)
    Halloween 4,5,6,H20, and 8
    Friday the 13th IV - X
    Elm street 5 and 6 (4's pretty lame too)
    New Years Evil
    Slaughter High
    The Redeemer (Ya, sue me, I didn't like this one)
    The Forest
    Driller Killer (some good kills, but overall a total letdown)
    The Ripper
    Bloody Moon (aside from a couple decent kills)

    I'm not really a fan of slashers, so for me it would be a very long list... though I do try occasionally

    If it's any indication, Scream, Jason X, and Bride of Chucky are three that I like.
