Good Slasher Movies


Good slasher movies follow certain conventions. For example, there is almost always some type of trauma in the past of the killer which turns him into a monster. (Although in some cases, like Halloween, the trauma in the past is just more acting out on the part of the slasher.) The movie almost always involves the memory of that past trauma instigating a new series of killings in the present.

  1. Halloween
  2. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
  3. Psycho
  4. Scream
  5. Black Christmas
  6. A Nightmare on Elm Street
  7. Child's Play

Note that some of the movies above can only marginally be considered slasher movies.
