    hmm okay. But don't most slasher films (even in their heyday) dissolve into the "run-and-hide survival-genre" towards the end of them?

    But the newer ones are like one long version of the end payoff. Gialli and slashers both have slashing generally, but the police procedures among other things differentiate the two. It's the arrangement of the elements, not the fact that they're present.

    Now that I think about, I don't think I've seen a modern day "slasher" film in years.

    My favorite slashers are the ones set in nature, Just Before Dawn, Madman, The Forest, The Final Terror. The meaner and nastier, the better. Major points for being scary and atmospheric.

    In no particular order:

    Halloween (1978)
    A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
    Nightmare (1981)
    Friday the 13th (1980)
    The Burning (1981)
    Black Christmas (1974)
    Maniac (1980)
    My Bloody Valentine (1981)
    Happy Birthday To Me (1981)
    Just Before Dawn (1981)
    Stagefright (1987)
    The Prowler (1981) (Mainly for the incredible Savini effects. The film itself is pretty boring)

    Not a fan of most sequels so I didn't bother to list them.

    "Cold Prey" 1 and 2 and "You´re Next" are great.
