">

Ever since Alfred Hitchcock created Psycho in 1960 the story of a weapon-wielding madman - stalking and slaughtering helpless victims - has become a fixture of fear flicks and bludgeoned bombastic box office takings worldwide. Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever takes an often irreverent look at this much-maligned, and frequently misunderstood, genre with commentary from some of the form's most celebrated filmmakers including Mick Garris (Masters of Horror), Adam Green (Hatchet), Tom Holland (Child's Play), Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) and Scott Spiegel (Intruder). Also making on-camera appearances are actors Emily Booth (Cradle of Fear), Corey Feldman (Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) and Robert Rusler (A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge) -as well as Jeffrey Reddick, the creator of the phenomenally successful Final Destination franchise. With a total of 26 interviewees, Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever is rarely short for words and provides both seasoned scholars of the splatter genre and newcomers to the gore-game with plenty of frightful fresh facts.
Cutting an immediate presence on the screen - Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever delves into the history of hack 'em up cinema, investigates the rules of this teen-trepanning terror trend and even gives some pointers into how to survive a stint in the genre. Frequently funny, delightfully disgusting and always engaging, Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever is ideal viewing for anyone who has found themselves gnawing on their fingernails during a chance viewing of Black Christmas, A Nightmare on Elm Street or Saw, Slice and Dice: The Slasher Film Forever is an unashamed salutation to the arterial-spraying excellence of Norman Bates, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and their many plasma-packed prot?g?s
