"The Prowler," "The Burning," "Madman," and "My Bloody Valintine" are probably the best slasher that never spawned any sequels. The first two feature fantastic gore effects from Tom Savini, all are well directed and have iconic killers. There's even some decent acting and writing in there too.

I don't get why The Prowler gets brought up so much or even gets good mention as it is one crappy movie. Heck, with some of the slasher flicks brought up in the last few posts, we might as well include Happy Hell Night in this bunch.

and due to a chaotic production (most of the original film negative was destroyed)

Why was it so hectic?

Sorry, the correct words should've been "bad luck".

Quote
Filmed in 1979, the release of A Night to Dismember was delayed until 1983 due to a mishap at Movielab, where the film was being processed. With most of her original footage destroyed, Doris Wishman rebuilt the film using what remained, adding a narrator (Tim O'Malley, the detective investigating the murders) to constantly explain the proceedings, often before they actually occur. At other times, the narrator simply reiterates what is being shown on-screen, voices the other character's dialogue for them, or tells us what they're dreaming of.

Ok, so far, heres the list of what i want to see:

Sleepaway Camp 2 and 3

The Prowler

Slumber Party Massacre 1 and 2

Memmorial Vally Massecre

Peices

Happy Birthday to Me

"The Burning"

Madman

and that one movie that Skaboi likes but the I foget the name.

I'd still like to add a few typical "lost in the woods" or "summer camp" type slashers to the list. Really, anything that you can look at and say, "Thats definatly 80s".


Also, i saw Chopping Mall the other day. Awesome movie, but no chopping at all. Just a bunch of Firey explosions and lazers. Needed more gore.

That would be The Mutilator.

Dude, seriously, check out My Bloody Valentine as well.  Sure it's cut but it's a hell of a lot of fun.  Ranks up there as one of my favorite slashers of all time.

As for lost in the woods....check out "Cannibal Campout".  There is a fantastic DVD release of the film and it's honestly a ton of fun.  I have a VHS copy in the old huge VHS case still around here somewhere.

And while I'm on the subject of hot babes in spandex, there's also Death Spa aka Witch b***h, about a series of killings in a health spa.  It was actually pretty good (well, consider who's saying it's pretty good  TeddyR ).  Interesting twists in the plot.  Pretty sure it's only available on VHS.

And then there's Aerobicide.  Haven't seen that in many years.  Remember it being okay.

I remember seeing Death Spa on the shelf at the video store years ago, the box cover was hilarious, that has got to be a bad movie.

It might not be that obscure but Sleepaway Camp is good 80's slasher.

 Try JUNIOR (1985) a VERY obscure psyco with a chainsaw movie! I HAD it once on vhs. It concerns two ex-con chicks who fight a trio of nutcases ..led by the big dum retard Junior. His Ma is in the mix too (a guy dressed in drag,I think!). Really perverse. Fun movie.

    And YES! It has boobies!!!!

I can't believe I found a video clip of this thing! Wow!

"My Bloody Valentine" is a 1981 one that I picked up fairly recently on a flipper disc that has the original April Fool's Day on the other side.  MBV was pretty heavily cut by the MPAA as they were really cracking down on screen violence at the time due to John Lennon's murder.  But it's still a lot of fun as far as slasher flicks go.  April Fool's Day is a hoot as well.

Manaic(1980)is one of the better slasher flicks. Actually thinking about it more of a serial killer type of film but has lots of slasher elements.

For an '80s slasher flick, you have to check out Camp Slaughter also known as Camp Daze. There is loads of gore and Jen gets the best line in the movie.

Something interesting I just found out by surfing IMDb... The killer from The Prey later played Lurch in the first two Addams Family movies.
