    I think I just listed my favorites in another thread that was almost the same as this. Am I crazy?

      Sleepaway Camp

      I'm not just trying to list every slasher film ever made. I genuinely rate all of the films i've listed highly.

      A Nightmare On Elm Street tops them all though.
      Halloween comes in 2nd.

        Love your list. Big props for mentioning one of the all-time greats The Prowler.

        I never saw the Nightmare films as slashers really but I love the series.

          No one's mentioned Slaughter High? I watched this one as a kid and just love it, still watch it from time to time.

          And I think I mentioned in another thread that Visiting Hours is one of the most underrated slashers of all time.


          I think Black Christmas for right now is my favorite but I still have a lot of these slashers to watch that were mentioned in this thread.

            My apologies, but Black Christmas has a humor? You mean the FELLATIO numbers? I think almost every horror movie ever made has lame humor, not just Black Christmas. I don't see how one or two humor weakens the entire quality of the movie, TBH.

            If there was some kind of humor in The Black Christmas, I must have missed it. And I think that was because I was too busy trying to not shit my pants because the movie was really frightening.

              I am a huge fan of Intruder. I guess there is another version of it out there. Is it vastly different and worth tracking down? Is it an improvement over the original? I have always been curious.

                This is really hard it's a toss up between, the orginal Black Christmas and the orginal Halloween. There's of course the arguement that Hitchcock's Psycho was the proto-slasher movie which holds a special place in my heart. Good thread Btw!

                  Yeah I remeber that movie from back in the day I could be wrong but was'nt the Rami brothers involved in that somehow. It was a good, tense slasher.

                    My favorite slasher of all time is Black Christmas (1974). I actually found it incredibly frightening & scary.

                      Yeah, they were both in it! I was really taken by surprise to see them both in that movie. That really added a little extra to the movie for me. I really love that movie.

                        I find the original Black Christmas very unscary, mostly due to untintentional humor. The killer reminds me of the breather in Student Bodies.

                          I do love that slasher, but there are many other better ones out there.

                            I think when it all comes down to it, Maniac is the #1 greatest slasher film of all time. I can't think of anything that even rivals it. You have one of the creepiest villains of all time, possibly the most bloodshed found in any slasher, ultra sleazy atmosphere, a disconcerting score, crude but effective directing, a Tom Savini cameo...the list goes on. Maniac supercedes the slasher label and rightfully becomes one of the very best horror films ever created.

                            My other close favorites vying for "best of" honors: Friday The 13th, Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter, Twitch of the Death Nerve, Halloween, Black Christmas. Also, it may not be one of the best slashers out there in terms of overall quality filmaking, but I'm extremely fond of Nightmares In A Damaged Brain.
