    Anyone who calls Madman one of the worst slashers ever made hasn't seen hardly any slashers.

    So basically you're saying every Troma slasher, or flicks like Hanger, Header, The Stitcher, The Caretaker, Butchered, are all better than MadMan in your opinion?

    Yeah okay you're right probably not as bad as some but there was something that rubbed me the wrong way about it I certainly didnt mean to offend anyone as I dont know you all very well

    I can see someone not liking Madman or that it "rubbed you the wrong way," but no way in the world is it the worst slasher ever made. :rolleyes:

    Not the worst slasher, but definitely not the best either.

    Haha...you're allowed to have an opinion. Obviously everyone is. I was just bringing up the fact that in the grand scheme of things...the 900+ (???) pre-1990 slashers made, and thousands more after...that Madman probably wouldn't fall into the worst of the worst due at least to gore, production values, and more. But obviously you can not like it. lol

    I might just have to check it out again since everyone seems to be disagreeing with me-perhaps I misjudged it ---Im willing to give it a second chance

    Watch it again at night. Keep in mind Madman was among the very first to follow in the wake of F13th. Marz came before Freddy, before Jason got his hockey mask, etc. The mood and atmosphere made the movie for me.......Larry

    Mytee,
    Don't be afraid to have an opinion!
    You are definitely entitled. People will just get upset when you make such a definitive statement, such as calling it the "worst" slasher, when there are clearly worse out there, whether you love or hate this film.
    Its great to have you here.
