Videos Dark Universe Halloween Season: Going to Pieces: The Rise And Fall Of the Slasher Film Published 2 years ago on October 17, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Slasher films are definitely one of the most popular genres in horror, fans just seem to love watching iconic villains do nasty things to their victims, who are usually the one’s deserving to die in those films. On that note, we continue Dark Universe Halloween Season with a little documentary titled Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film, which features all your favourite horror stars. About the documentary: “This historical and critical look at slasher films, which includes dozens of clips, begins with “Halloween,” “Friday the 13th,” and “Prom Night.” The films’ directors, writers, producers, and special effects creators comment on the films’ making and success. During the Reagan years, the films get gorier, budgets get smaller, and their appeal wanes. Then, “Nightmare on Elm Street” revives the genre. Jump to the late 90s, when “Scream” brings humor and TV stars into the mix. Although some criticize the genre as misogynistic (Siskel and Ebert), most of the talking heads celebrate the films: as long as there are teenagers, there will be slasher films, says one.” Halloween is coming and Dark Universe will be bringing you lots more content like this all through October.
