ATTENTION: This list is no longer updated.

With the addition of lists of lists to Listal, I have broken this list up into separate lists for each decade, and then added those lists to a master list, which can be found here:

Slasher Film Master List

I have done this for a few reasons, but the major reason is that this list was getting hard to manage, with so many items.



This list is a work in progress. I may remove movies that I don't think belong in this list, and I may add others as I discover them. I may also add trailers to the list, if I can find the trailer on YouTube, as well as better quality poster images, if I can find them.

This is a list of every slasher film I could find, new and old, good and bad, and everything in between.

What is a "slasher film" you ask?


Wikipedia's description of a slasher film says:

The slasher film is a sub-genre of the horror film typically involving a psychopathic killer stalking and killing a sequence of victims in a graphically violent manner. Although the term "slasher" may be used as a generic term for any horror movie involving graphic acts of murder, the slasher as a genre has its own set of characteristics which set it apart from related genres like the splatter film.

This list also contains films which had an influence on the slasher subgenre (Psycho, Dementia 13, etc.), or are heavily influenced by slasher films .
