    This time of year, I'll say Black Christmas. But most of the rest of the year...it's a toss-up, but I'll probably say Halloween.

    If I were on an Island I'd naturally want my Survival Kit, yes, the whole boxset of Sleepaway Camp. I do love all of them but I guess I'd have to go with the original Sleepaway Camp if I had to. Others that I'd miss seeing since I only was able to bring one movie would be: Maniac, The Burning, Slumber Party Massacre, Silent Night Deadly Night, and I don't know, a few others.

    Have to be Friday the 13th. I remember seeing at the movie theater. That summer, I was taking swimming lessons, and I broke a few blood vessels in my left eye, because I didn't want to go off the diving board and I was reluctantly pushed and my eye was open when I hit the water. I was 11 at the time, and I had a Cracker Jack box, and covered my good eye with the box. There are other slasher movies I love, but I will never forget that experience.

    Halloween (the original), not the Rob Zombie abomination.

    I also like the original Halloween and Friday the 13th. Soft spot for the Mutilator (1985), as well.
    If your looking for a historical starting point for slashers, check out The Spiral Staircase (1946).

    The original THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE is an excellent film and has been pretty influential.It was remade in the 70's as a feature and also more recently as a telefilm .The original is much better.

    Sleepaway Camp is my Goddess...or, God?

    I'd take that!

    Friday the 13th, My Bloody Valentine and Black Christmas are sweet too.

    Halloween (original)

    Honorable Mentions that have not been mentioned: Pieces, Bay of Blood, Slumber Party Massacre II. It is not too offen that a pseudo rockabilly driller killer gets the chance to slaughter a houseful of bad actors/actresses while singing "Let's Buzz".
     
  17. I can't say I have a favorite above all others but the Slasher I've watched the most would probably be Friday The 13th pt3. It's the first slasher film I ever watched as a kid, I sucked my mother into renting it on video for me when I was twelve. The scene where the kid doing a handstand gets chopped with a machete through the groin left an impression on me, it's also the film that introduces the iconic hockey mask too.
