I was just wondering if someone that could list all the slasher movies that aren't so obvious like friday the 13th , and the halloween franchise , because i've noticed lately , even though im an avid fan of slasher movies , i haven't seen half of them , like terror train, happy birthday to me, i had no clue they were slasher material , so if anyone has the time , an has a knows pretty much all the slasher flicks out there , hook me up , also if you can , list the killers main gimmick ex:Jason/hockey mask...

some of them :
Just Before Dawn ( outstanding backwoods slasher !!)
Terror Eyes ( 5 /10 )
Bodycount ( backwoods slasher from Deodato 6/10 )
Visiting Hours ( a better than average slasher starring Michael Ironside, a killer spree in a Hospital )
Blood Tracks ( sweedish slasher, a rock and roll band has to fight against an odd family)
A Blade In The Dark ( good giallo from Lamberto Bava, the bathroom scene is not for the squeamish !!! )
My Bloody Valentine ( great film, good setting, good outfit, the mines 9/10 !!! )

Welcome to the board, TheReaper. I haven't seen it, but Black Christmas(1974) gets a ton of praise around here. Some call it the original slasher.

Wow I thought I was the only one who has seen Body Count. Good call Jason13th. That shamen killer was pretty cool looking.
Here are some other slashers that are not well known but are very good.
1. Hell Night (beast/ slasher movie with an awesome mansion setting
2. Final Terror (one of the best slasher in the woods movies featuring an old hag)
3. The Prowler (one of the best hidden gems you will find, great killer/savini fx and some of the better music in a slasher)
4. Intruder (one of the gorier slashers with cameos from Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, inventive kills indeed)
5. Final Exam (Pretty cool campus slasher that had some cool fraternity hijinx, doesn't come off as low budget as it really is)
6. Don't Go In the Woods (ultimate cheese, I dare you to watch this. It is pure crap but i always enjoy watching this for its high body count and lousy sound editing)
7. The Prey (If you can stand the endless shots of insects this ones isn't too bad, it has a cool ending and some really neat mountain scenery)
8. House on Sorority Row (The best and I mean best sorority slasher, very well done and has a cool killer. The murder weapon is different too, a cane)
9. The Burning (This is one of my favorites with a great cast and a cool killer in Cropsy. The raft scene is worth watching alone)

THE FINAL TERROR, is excellant.
Even though it cost me £16, for a 2nd hand edition, it was well worth it.
The raft scenes resemble Deliverance, the killings, especially the first, are different, a breath of fresh air compaired to other backwoods slashers.
The music is creepy, the acting great,
and the ending is one of the more unexpected within the slasher genre, SPOILER- it has family relations in the twist!!!
I REALLY LIKE THIS SLASHER.

I agree Andy13th and xCoryx, I really liked the Final Terror too. I don't care if its only 80 minutes long or there are few kills, the atmosphere rocks in that movie. It is one of my favorites. Here are some more that I have thought of
Curtains (very uneven movie but for some reason I like it. It had very good acting and the snow bound mansion was a nice touch. This one is more memorable from its great ice skating scene)
Humongous (This movie is very dark and it is hard to make out but I like it. It is made by the creators from Prom Night and it is inferior to that movie but it has some redeeming values. The beginning was great and it set up the story well. The beast and the house were pretty cool ideals too)
Girls Nite Out (This is probably one that most don't like but it had some real funny dialogue (not intentionally) and the weirdest killer (bear mascot suit). It also has Hal Holbrook in it which is merit right there.
Madman (Pretty cheesy movie and has a weird blue lighting throughout but it has some really neat kills. This is a nice alternative if you are looking for another camp slasher)
BTW, Hey xCoryx, is Hide and Go Shriek any good. I haven't seen this and I was wondering if it is worth the watch. Also has anyone seen Edge of the Axe or Stage Fright? Thanks in advance
