    That film is sooo lame yet I can't seem to part with it. I bought the original Vestron Video tape when they were closing down video rental stores on base a couple of years ago. I don't own a vcr anymore and most of my old tapes or gone or defect, but I still have a nearly mint SCREAM sitting on my shelf. Go figure :eek2:

    If only I had seen all of the titles I could make a proper judgement. Of the ones I've seen I know Pieces, Don't Open Til' Christmas, Mountaintop Motel Massacre, and Splatter University are all pretty bad. Hell, I own em all. But I've heard bad things about Open House, Final Exam, and of course, The Last Slumber Party. Like that'll stop me from buying them.

    :lol:

    Best screen capture ever. That will now replace my James Bryan photo as my profile picture.

    If I owned it I wouldn't part with it either. That ending is so amazingly pretentious and nonsensical it needs to be forever preserved.

    I vote other because I think the original Prom Night was beyond terrible.

    Final Exam doesn't deserve a place on this list. Sure, there are better slashers, but it's enjoyable enough, and it's not like it has any major technical slip-ups.

    My vote goes to blandly casted, technically amateurish The Forest, but I must say, I hate Cut more... But I will be fair and say that Cut is more well-made.

    You guys voting for Madman and Prom Night are crazy... ;) You obviously haven't seen a REALLY bad slasher!

    Please don't hate the film. Me and Byron really wants you to enjoy the film and his explanation to that ending. We had so many request for it in our emails. :D

    Are you hinting there will be a DVD of Scream? :eek:

    I'm willing to give it another shot, but only if its in glorious widescreen (I guess I said the same about Final Exam).

    Had to go with VALENTINE for no other reason than the way Tom Savage's brilliant novel was turned it into a pile of unrelated crap. I wanted to send the man a sympathy card when I saw what they did to his story.

    MADMAN was such a huge disappointment for me.

    I guess I will never understand how people who proclaim to love slashers can not enjoy Valentine. :(

    There are so many shit slashers out there, so many of which hardly even come together as anything cohesive or understandable (Scream 1980), that the ones highlighted here (Valentine, Prom Night, Madman!) are already leaps and bounds better than them because they are both exposed and actually end. Blood Massacre was like watching the color brown for 90 minutes.

    I won't say that I didn't enjoy it. It didn't make much of an impression, though. However, anyone who has seen something of the same caliber as The Forest know that you can't dismiss Madman, Prom Night, or Valentine as the worst ever - at least not if you judge fairly based on the film's technical merrits.

    And when I say 'of that caliber,' I say it because I haven't seen Don't Go in th Woods, which I haven't seen but suspect is on par with The Forets - maybe even less competent.

    Maybe people resent Valentine because it doesn't cut it as an adaptation?

    Thank you for that colorful piece of eloquence - it put a big smile on my face. Your level-headed argumentation has also dissuaded me from actually watching the movie. ;)

    Voted for other: Madman. Oh boy...never been so bored. I had to turn the commentaries on instead of the original audio to avoid falling asleep. They were a lot better. I thought this was a classic, but no, it doesn't even have hot chicks. The only good thing about it is the lighting on night scenes which i thought was pretty outstanding.

    Bloody Murder...simply awful...

    Oddly enough, I did not mind the sequel though...

    I agree, Bloody Murder is truly awful. But I have a weird fascination with the sequel, which I find ... well, awful, but fun.
