    I think I'm catching the same wind of deja-vu. But I'll play along:

    1. Sorority House Massacre II
    2. Hard to Die / Tower of Terror
    3. Sleepaway Camp
    4. Friday the 13th Part III
    5. Alone in the Dark


    Honorable mentions and so forth:

    I don't really see either Deadly Friend or Friday the 13th Part VIII as slasher films, but they're high on my list of accomplishment. They're just much smarter and better acted than the genre requires. Same goes with Argento's slightly-supernatural giallos. In terms of mood, I'll forever love the original, Paramount Friday the 13th series, zombie-Jason and all.

    And that's all that comes to mind.

    OH, and I just can't say enough about Dr. Giggles. I'm telling you- I was that surprised by how good it was.

    Well if its not to any Halloween, F13, TCM or NOES or any of there sequels then my list is as follows in no particular order:

    1. Black Christmas

    2. My Bloody Valentine

    3. Scarecrows(1988)

    4. Deathdream

    5. Halloween 3(since i don't count it as part of the Michael Meyers Halloween series)

    I've still yet to see Torso or THe Town that Dreaded Sundown as both look promising. ALso Dawn of the Dead(original) if its considered slasher would work too.

    I'd say only 3 out of your 5 are slashers. And no, Dawn of the Dead is in no way a slasher. I've never even heard anyone say that before.
     
  17. Top notch list right there...excluding those 5 I'll add 5 more

    Behind the Mask: The Story of Leslie Vernon
    The Tripper (Its freaking Reagan killing hippies!)
    Hatchet
    Happy Birthday to Me
    Slumber Party Massacre

    Honorable mention to Malevolence for actually being scary

    Hummm...

    - April Fool's Day
    - Rituals
    - The Burning
    - Happy Birthday to Me
    - Wrong Turn

    But "Jason Lives!" would trump them, if it wasn't a Friday.
