Slasher Films – Episode 116


This week, we continue our month long celebration of everything spooky with a deep discussion on the history and tropes contained in the humble Slasher Film.  Why are we drawn to a type of movie that contains a little more than a loosely drawn morality tale with loads of blood and guts?  How did these films rise to prominence in the 1980s and fall in the 90’s only to be revived again with the meta film, Scream?  So grab your hockey mask or knife glove as we take a deep dark look at the Slasher Film.

Calling all Indie filmmakers!  We Want Your Movies!

As indie filmmakers, we can appreciate the value of a review of your work.  Film festivals, distribution companies, sales agents, etc. all look at reviews and press that a film can get when considering picking up a film.  If you are interested in submitting your indie film for review, contact us at the links below with a digital screener of your movie and we will do what we can to feature it on a future episode of The Cinema Psychos Show.
