A documentary recalling the rise and fall and rise again of the slasher film genre.
Whilst the main players are here (John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Sean Cunningham) there aren’t any major revelations or anecdotes that haven’t been heard before.
Also key works are omitted that had an influence on the genre- where is Blood Feast?
This doc is a good introduction to the genre for a beginner horror hound but is a bit old hat for more seasoned pros.
