    In no particular order:

    Friday The 13th Part 3-Virtuous Dana Kimmell in her Pepto Bismol-pink glory,Jason at his ugliest and meanest,and the dubious talent that is Larry Zerner as grade A fuck-up Shelly (if Fridays can't be counted,then still-censored Happy Birthday To Me,or Schoolnik's underrated homoerotic Hide And Go Shriek fit the bill)

    Intruder a.k.a. Night Crew-Meatslicer head bisection.Trash compacter head squish.Telephone booth face-off.Gratuitous "Half Off" sales.Need I say more?

    My Bloody Valentine(uncut original)-Just inventively brutal,from Happy's surprise pickaxe face-plant,to Sylvia's goggle-eyed human drinking fountain. Plus an engaging Final Girl/love triangle and even the old ladies aren't spared the Miner's wrath. .

    Chopping Mall-Kelli Maroney's Valley Girl afro and "Dad was a marine" line,malfunctioning killer robots on wheels,and John Terlesky's immaculately- coiffed, massive noggin.Extra points for Barbara Crampton's Toast n' Go demise.

    The Initiation-Daphne Zuniga leads a cast of surprisingly-engaging unknowns(at the time),nearly all of whom meet his/her Maker messily. Garden trowel embedding.Plenty of mall lurk n' stalk.Sorority drama.AND a surprise 80s-style twist more believable than that foisted onto us in HBTM.ACES.

    Cap'n and Coke would be better,not so much a beer man.Glad you appreciate the finer side of slasher-cinema.Nothing better than being trapped in a store after hours with your big-breasted friends who can't act while something lusts for your blood..(well,hypothetically,anyway).

    Im going to assume Giallo films are included in this thread.

    1)Tenebre
    2)My Bloody Valentine ('81)
    3)Sleepaway Camp
    4)Behind the Mask (not a straight slasher but psuedo slasher)
    5)The Prowler

    I was on the line about American Psycho which is my favorite film of all time but feel that its not really a slasher film so much as a serial killer study piece.

    Wow...... very difficult. I can go many ways. I'm gonna exclude Friday the 13th films because it may only leave me with an option or two left. But my favorites off the top of my head in no particular order:

    Halloween
    Silent Night, Deadly Night
    Maniac
    High Tension
    Scream

    Edit* Nightmare on Elm Street needs to be here. I'll substitute out Scream, I guess. Lol

    "Slasher Film"? I am guessing what you mean by that is Halloween (1978) and whatever similar types of horror movies that came after. This wouldn't include Psycho (1960), Black Christmas and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and others that came out before. Keeping this in mind my top five would be:

    1. Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer
    2. Nightmare (1981)
    3. Maniac (1980)
    4. A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
    5. Pieces

    Thank You and Good Night.

    Sleepaway Camp (1983)
    Friday the 13th (1980)
    Black Christmas (1974)
    My Bloody Valentine (1981)

    How to fill that final spot? F13 Part 2? The Burning? Terror Train? Night Warning? Humongous? Nightmares in a Damaged Brain? Happy Birthday to Me? Tough one to call. Bay of Blood if I could include the dual gialli/slashers.
