Call all horror movie fans, this one's for you! For six bloody years (1978–1984), the “golden age” of slashers, cinema screens and video stores were stalked by homicidal maniacs with murder and mayhem on their minds. The Teenage Slasher Movie Book details the subgenre’s surprising beginnings, revels in its g(l)ory days, and discusses its recent resurgence.
Packed with reviews of the best and worst slasher movies and illustrated with an extensive collection of distinctive and often graphic color poster artwork from around the world, this book also looks at the political, cultural, and social influences on the slasher movie and its own effect on other film genres.
