Slasher movies are a subgenre of horror film, that typically involve a psychopath stalking and murdering several
people usually with knifes or bladed tools. As the slasher film market has become over-saturated
in the past decade or so, Today I thought I would make a video
on many of the more unheard of or bizarre slasher titles – that never
really achieved the praise they deserve, However I will put in one or two,
more popular films to keep viral people happy.� As the definition of a slasher varies to some,
for this video I’m going to be sticking to the non-supernatural films, so
that means no movies like “a nightmare on Eml Street” or “Childs P lay”,
as I’m saving them for another video. Director Bob Clarks slasher horror Mystery
Thriller, Black Christmas During their Christmas break, an unfortunate
houseful of sorority sisters are celebrating the holiday season, but when
a strange anonymous caller starts harassing them with obscene phone calls,
it becomes clear that a very troubled person is stalking them. This atmospheric stalk and slash classic,
while not heavy on violence or having a high body count- is very well made
and put together for a low budget movie.�Similar to the better known
“Halloween”, both films are themed around holidays, where they feature
a killer with Point of view shots, and both movies have a slow build-up
that makes the audience actually care for the characters.� Black Christmas is a frighteningly effective
and way above average slasher with a solid memorable cast and an excellent
surprise ending that will leave you guessing.� Director William Lu-stig’s slasher horror
thriller maniac As a result of his lousy upbringing – psychopath
Frank Zito, is loose in New York City, doing what all psychopaths in slashers
do best.. killing people. Franks fetish is to collect young women’s
scalps as trophies for his mannequin collection, and talking to his dead
mother at home. While most of today’s horror movies barely
register once the film ends, Maniac will haunt you for hours. It well deserves
its controversial reputation, for its �extremely violent depictions of
scalping and murder. While it does have some unintentionally funny
scenes, this mov ie has excellent drawn out suspense and has one of
the best head explosion I’ve seen.. that rivals that of scanners. One thing is for sure, I will never look at
mannequins in quite the same way again. Joseph Zitos slasher horror mystery thriller
The Prowler Set in a small town where a disgruntled WW2
Vet in Army fatigues, has a very strong disliking for happy teenagers.
This unknown killer focuses on a group of college kids holding a graduation
ball, the first ball held after a double homicide that occurred 35 years earlier. While the character development in the prowler
is practically non-existent, and the motivation behind the carnage is left
purely down to guess work. It’s all compensated for by Tom Savini’s gruesomely
realistic gore effects – where they are among the slasher genres best. It may not be as well known as Halloween or
friday the 13th, but “The Prowler” is a quintessential slasher movie
nonetheless and is a must see for fans of the genre. Wes Cravens slasher horror mystery thriller
– Scream One year after the murder of her mother, Sydney
Prescott starts experiencing some creepy phone calls, by a
person with a voice changer. After discovering the calls were coming from
a crazed serial killer who’s been murdering local teenagers- Sydney soon
realises she is the main target for this mysterious murderer. What makes this movie so fun, is its clever
and often use of satire- where it plays with the tropes and clich�s of
the slasher genre and subverts them with the help of witty film references in
its dialogue and solid directing. Overall Scream is an great hybrid of black
comedy and slasher thriller, that is fairly gory and has some good jump scares.
It’s highly re-watchable and an excellent teen horror movie – which is
a very rare treat. Adam Wingards Thriller – You’re next Everything is going great at the Davison family
reunion, until it all goes horribly wrong when a gang of masked, ax-wielding
psychopaths descend upon them. With murderers in their holiday
home, the hapless Davison family’s fate seems all too clear, or is it? This home invasion slasher does a pretty good
job on building tension throughout the movie, but a warning to those
of you who don’t like slow paced horror – things don’t really kick off
until the third act. As One of the smarter movies on this list,
“you’re next” re-invents the slasher genre by putting a refreshing twist
on the rules of who survives and why. While some people will hate this
twist and think it’s stupid, others will love it and think it’s great. Director Tobe Hoopers – slasher horror The
Texas Chainsaw massacre When a sister and her brother take a group
of friends on a road trip – to visit the farmhouse of their dead grandfather
– On route they are attacked by a family of cannibalistic psychopaths,
where their soon to be very short lives, are plunged into a seemingly never-ending
nightmare. The Texas Chainsaw massacre is a groundbreaking
cult classic- that is responsible for establishing many elements
of horror films today – While some may be put off by the amateur acting
and low budget visuals, there is one thing I can promise you- once
the slaughtering starts in this film – you will be shifting uncomfortably in your
seat. Overall, the Texas Chainsaw massacre is a
solid low budget film with pretty unique camerawork and an equally unique
story. Director Roar Uthaug’s slasher horror Mystery
Drama cold prey The story follows 5 friends on a snowboarding
holiday in Norway’s mountain region, where they are forced to take shelter
in an abandoned hotel after one of them breaks his leg. They are quick
to discover that the hotel was closed in the seventies, but unknown to them-
someone is still living in the hotel. A major box office success in Norway – Cold
prey is defiantly better than your average modern slasher- it’s a creepy
and suspenseful film, especially during the last half, where the killers screen
presence is used very effectively. But a heads up to all you gorehounds
out there – if you want brutality and lots of gore, then Cold prey
is not the movie for you. Alfred Sole’s slasher horror Mystery thriller
-Alice Sweet Alice Follows Alice Spages, an introvert 12 year
old girl who lives with her mother and her younger sister, Karen. After
her sister is brutally murdered just before her first communion, where all
visual clues quickly point to Alice making her the polices main suspect. Apart from the creepy large cat man and some
hilariously overacted scenes – Alice, Sweet Alice is a sold & unique
Slasher film in terms of horror delivery. Along with the earlier mentioned
Black Christmas & Maniac; this movie is one of the few Slashers to really
have a sense of atmosphere and suspense while not relying on blood and
guts. Well-directed and original, Alice sweet Alice,
is definitely worth a viewing, especially if you love 1970s horror. If You Want to Get into Slasher Horror – Watch

  1. What's your favorite scary movie? – Other great slashers include Deep Red, My bloody valentine, The burning, Prom night, April fools day, and stage fright! Want to support my channel, please go to

  2. I'm not huge fan of slashers but I'd pick halloween and black christmas in part because it's canadian and both are well written and acted.

  3. When I saw the title, the first movie that came into my mind was You're Next.
    Slasher horror is not my genre, in fact I really dislike it. But I enjoyed this movie. I don't mean the gory, brutal parts, they always upset me, but I liked the tension, the protagonist, and I loved the twists.
    Yeah, you mention there's a twist, but I'd add that this film subverts the typical tropes in every other way, too, and that made it very interesting to me.

  4. Maniac Cop. Something about towering, amoral cop on a vengeance trip was nightmare fuel. Given the furor over police shootings, seems even more poignant today.

  5. After seeing several such mentions of You're Next i decided to check it out. It's like a C level knock off of the Faaaaaarrrrrr superior The Strangers, which crushes it in mood, tension, camerawork and acting. I was really disappointed.

  6. "Everything's going great at the Davidson's family reuinion…"

    Were you watching the movie? That was one of the most uncomfortable dinner scenes I had to sit through since Only God Forgives.

  7. Loved the video, and cant wait to see more.

    Would love to see a video comparing and reviewing the 80s Summer Camp Slashers. Friday the 13th, The Burning and Sleepaway Camp being the titans of the bunch. I mean seriously though, Sleepaway Camp and that ending!

  8. Hi, I like your videos and I respect your work. But in my opinion you have forgotten the Italian slasher movies.
    I suggest you to watch Mario Bava or Lucio Fulci's works if you already didn't do it.

  9. Love your film lists! Even if I've seen most of them, every once in a while something unknown to me comes up… And we apparently have more or less the same taste in films! Maniac is really an unsung classic.

  10. This is actually a solid list, the only film I have missed so far is Cold Prey (sounds good though). The two more popular films you drop in are two of the fans of this genre's most adored Scream and TCM. In my opinion they should've been skipped and Prom Night and Terror Train replacing them.
    My biggest disagreement is Black Christmas for several reasons.
    1: As a huge horror fan and my favorite film of the genre is Halloween (or any genre for that matter), I am completely aware of Black Christmas and the controversies surrounding these films (Bob Clark's opinion of Halloween)
    2: The story has huge plot holes beyond belief and the ending is completely asinine. a: The Police would've never let Jess back into the house period, and this has to be the film where the stupid Cop plot originated b: why did it take the authorities so long to figure out the calls were coming from inside the house, with the phone technology the way it was in '74 they would have noticed in the house that one of the lines was in use while everybody in said house was downstairs c: the whole subplot of the little girl d: back to the police if they figured out that the killer was in the house why in God's name did they neglect the attic!?!?! bringing us back to the fact that Jess would never be allowed back into the house by the police or even want to on her own accord making the ending completely implausible.
    At least it is better than the remake, but only a fair to middling film compared to the rest of the list. You should have put in one of your favorites My Bloody Valentine '81 instead.

  11. You should've put in Silent Night, Deadly Night. A child who witnessed his parents get killed by a man dressed as Santa as a child finds himself as a toy shop Santa…. YOU'VE BEEN NAUGHTY

  12. When I think of slasher-crazy killer movies, I immediately think of "Black Christmas." 'Tis a classic and one that everyone to whom I have recommended it has liked. It, also, sticks with you mentally after it ends. This is not my favourite genre, but this is a film that I enjoyed. … Oh, and "Cold Prey" made a very good impression, too. It was well worth watching. … This is another good list, Hyperdrive.

  13. PLEASE give a warning if you're gonna show a pic of CHUCKY. Please, my brain is assaulted everytime I see his evil grimace.

  14. Yes yes. Thank you for this. What you said about cold prey. The movie is definitely for me. I was looking for regular gore Slasher movies then the ones that are over the top gory and brutal as hell Slasher movies.

    Thank you so much for these smart Slasher creepy movies.

  15. Technically the Texas Chainsaw Massacre doesn't count as a slasher film but more of a wrong place wrong time horror film other than that teensy issue I bloody loved your next it was so good and was brilliantly acted, so much I found it believable
