VH1 Takes on the Horror Genre in ‘Slashers’

Tadd informed me that this Saturday at 10/9 central, VH1 will be airing an episode of their new “Super Secret Movie Rules” show and their first episode will be the “Slashers” episode including all of our favorite horror villians. According to the VH1 website, the show will include interviews with Joe Bob Briggs, Wes Craven, John Carpenter, P.J. Soles & Heather Langenkamp. The movies include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Hellraiser, Child’s Play, Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scary Movie & Freddy Vs. Jason. VH1 writes, “Why are slasher movies a cut above other genres? Is it the fact that in these films, sluts die and virgins live? Is it the way these killers can be shot, stabbed, burned and decapitated but still never seem to die? Is it the way spooked teenager peers seem to view dark, empty rooms as welcome mats? The answers to these and many other pointed questions can be found in the Slashers episode of VH1’s newest series, Super Secret Movie Rules, which injects some new blood into a popular film format.”
