My guide to slasher films

There are a lot of slasher films, most are bad, so this is the list to understand this film phenomenon that marked the horror genre.

I recommend watching the first ones of each series than the second one of each, and then you can decide if the rest is worth it. This order is almost chronological, but put an emphasis as how each franchise approaches the genre and how they try to keep expanding for subsequent films.
