With Scream 4 gracing our screens shortly, this week’s poll is looking for your favourite ‘slasher’ movie. It’s tough to define, so there might be some big names missing, but generally it’s because I don’t consider it a true slasher. Texas Chainsaw Massacre was the toughest call. It’s sort of a slasher film, but sort of isn’t, so I’ve left it off. Also, I’ve only included the first in the series for things like Halloween to avoid the list being enormous, but feel free to choose whichever installment you like, just put your thoughts in the comments section.

    I’m a massive Halloween fan, but I couldn’t pass up on Psycho, it’s so damn good. I was tempted to leave it off, but it really is a slasher movie, despite it’s age and small number of killings. It still works in a similar way to things like Halloween where people are brutally picked off one by one by a masked/unseen killer.

      I go back and forth on if Psycho is a slasher or not. It shares a lot of the elements but it somehow feels disingenuous to label it as such.

      I voted fro Nightmare because it was always my favorite. That said if I were to rank them on quality both Halloween and Psycho would be above it. Black Christmas might as well.

      Have you seen Behind the Mask: The Legend of Leslie Vernon? Anyone who is interested in this poll and hasn’t seen that really should.

    I’ve not seen Behind The Mask, although I’ve heard about it through the Row Three guys, they’ve mentioned it once or twice on their podcast. It didn’t seem to get much of a release over here.
