Slasher Film Master List
A list of slasher flicks from the 1960s.
Some of these may not be full fledged slashers, but they all have hints of things to come, in the 1970s, and even more so in the 1980s.
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 .
