I think I need to see PIECES...

dont remember this thread but I have since acquired Pieces on DVD...pretty good, wouldn't put it top 10 though

'fraid I can't really agree with TORSO being that good. was disappointed when I saw it, might watch again just in case

giallo-wise Id probably say Deep Red and What Have They Done To Your Daughters both standing head and shoulders above all the others I've seen. 'Lizard In A Woman's Skin' is on my wishlist though. saw some clips on youtube and it looks excellent, even though I've seen some very dodgy Fulci films

While not quite a giallo fan, here are my ten favourite slasher flicks (in no particular order):

1) Sleepaway Camp
2) Friday the 13th (1980)
3) Halloween (1978)
4) Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
5) My Bloody Valentine (1981)
6) Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors
7) Halloween II (1981)
8) Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge
9) Friday the 13th part II
10) Friday the 13th part III

Yeah, I know it's not a very cultured list in slasher terms. But whatever, those are my faves. Take 'em or leave 'em.

Some that I don't see getting any votes-and rightfully so-
.DRIVE IN MASSACRE (1977)-I like BAD movies,but "bad" with a capital "B". This is Boring bad. Incidently the only name in this film is Buck Flower...and he is not listed in the credits.

.the DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD (1982)-To start-this is one of the most borin....ing...(YAWN)....bor-bo-zzzzzzzz.....

.I DISMEMBER MAMA (1972)-Weird shmuck falls in love with 11 year old girl. And no Mama's get dismembered. Best thing about this drek is the title.

.3 On a MEATHOOK (1972)-Dam-with one of the best titles ever, I sooo wanted to like this film. Another Ed Gein based film...only deadly dull. I guess it deserves some kinda credit for making a movie about a cannabalistic serial killer sleep inducing.

 Some that deserve honarable mention.....

.STRAIGHT JACKET (1964)-Bill Castle trys to be Hitchcock. Though he dosent quite have the skill do do THAT-he did make a fun movie! Joan Crawfords over the top dramatics make this one a keeper! And George Kennedy gets his head chopped off!!!  Smile

.DERANGED (1974) Anther Gein based film-but this one is much closer to the facts! And one of the BEST! I rate this right up there with PSYCHO and the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE! Roberts Blossum is TERRIFIC! He should got an Oscar. Really. (If you will recall-Blossum was the creepy old man with the shovel in the comedy HOME ALONE).

.The GORE GORE GIRLS (1972)-The last film by the infamous HG Lewis, has some of the most disgusting (and most amatuerish) gore ever put to cellioud. And it's got Henny Youngman! And a feh detective! And it's (Bela help me!) funny.

.TRUTH OR DARE? (1986)-Tim Ritter's shot on video anti masterpiece is bloody,weird,and hilarious! As is Ritter's....
.KILLING SPREE (1987)!

.REAL KILLERS (1996) When I picked this up at a yard sale-I wasn't expecting much. But was quite surprised! No classic-but the twist (SPOILER ALERT)
of the serial killers breaking into the house of a whole family of serial killers was lotsa fun!

My top 10 slashers (in no particular order) are:

Slumber Party Massacre
Sleepaway Camp 2
Silent Night, Deadly Night (I almost gave it to part 2 for sheer cheese)
Graduation Day
The Initiation
Friday the 13th Part V (yeah, I know everyone hates this one, but I love it - despite the ending!)
Slaughter High
Killer Workout (Aerobicide)
My Bloody Valentine (original)
Hide and Go Shriek

You can probably tell that I like cheese in my slashers!  This was off the top of my head, and I'm sure it could change at any minute, but this seems pretty good...

There's a few mentions of Slumber Party Massacre on this thread.  I thought the sequal was much more entertaining.  It doesn't make sense, but it's more fun. 


For a top 10, I'd have to think about it some more.  There's just so many good ones.  I do have a soft sport for the cheesier slashers though.

Slashers and Jack-O are personal favorites.

Gotta agree with you RC.  Especially DRIVE IN MASSACRE.. that's got to be the worst ending I've ever seen.  Everyone in the theater had to be supremely insulted.

No way, the ending was great!  a good example of the campy, fun gimmicks that went with many of the Drive in Movies back then!

My Top 10, in no particular order:

The House on Sorority Row
Prom Night
Sleepaway Camp
Friday The 13th
Terror Train
My Bloody Valentine
Nightmare (1981)
Tourist Trap
Black Christmas
Cheerleader Camp (had to throw that one in there BounceGiggle)

Uh.. maybe in the 50s or early 60s.  Audiences deserved better by the late '70s.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
