The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Slasher Films (1974 - 1995)

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of slasher films, and here I've tried to compile a list of all the ones I've seen, ranked from favorite to least favorite. I've only included films made between 1974 and 1995. Why? Well, to me, the American slasher film (not counting Psycho and Peeping Tom (both 1960)) started with Black Christmas and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (both 1974) and was then resurrected in 1996 with the release of Wes Craven's Scream.

My wife and I are currently on a mission to watch every slasher film ever made (well, at least the ones from '74 to '95). She made her own list which you can view by clicking here!
