Top Ten Best Slasher Films

The Top TenXW

1Halloween

Wow. This movie doesn't scare me AS much as when I try to go to sleep. I cannot go to sleep without thinking Michael Myers is about to stab me in my sleep. One time after watching it, I heard a noise down my hallway and couldn't fall asleep for an hour. And I figured it out, too. People who voted for another movie are purely and simply evil.

This movie was simply ground breaking! It was brilliantly made and masterfully creaked Michael Myers, as man who is evil with no reason to be. That may be the scariest thing of all... he kills because he likes it. Definitely deserves to be number 1!

This movie is truly scary, one of the best, and its not just killing, its got a point to it and I love that! I love the whole thing about Laurie being really Laura Michaels sister its just great - IzzyStyles1994

What a masterpiece

2Scream

This great and inventive film inspired a new generation of horror fans to go back a few years and watch the slasher films that were the inspiration for this particular film. Wes craven was one of the few true masters of horror. Great film.

Wes craven really knows how to mix horror and satire. My 7th favorite movie of all time

The gr8est slasher film ever. Guys when it is revealed who is the killer we get amazed. Superb movie

3A Nightmare on Elm Street

Dude Johnny Depp getting pulled down into the bed and blood spuing on the ceiling best death scene in slasher death scene history

The original nightmare and part 3 stand out as being the best of the series but all are worth a look. There will never be another Freddy related film to touch either. And even though it gets a rough review from most I thought Freddy Vs Jason was good. Very fun. Very creative... And who wasn't sitting around for years waiting to see it.

the original not this new bs. also freddy v. jason was the worst thing ever. - Mcbabe

4Psycho
5The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

This is the best slasher of all time. The remake is definitely not better than the original, just more gore and less suspense as well as bad acting.

The granddaddy of all horror cinema. It was the best when it came out and not one film has touched it since

2003 movie is my favorite horror movie of all time

6Freddy vs. Jason

The only successful mainstream blend of two horror franchises, this film pits Freddy against Jason, and the result is an awesomely entertaining hour-and-a-half of slasher gore. - JR302

The film puts two of the best slashers ever made together in a showdown, its a bit silly I agree but at the same time entertaining and exhilarating. - Jhrwwe

This was hands down, the best slasher. The story lines, of both Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday 13th was excellent

Tons of fun! It's like Ali Vs Frazier in the horror world. Wasn't perfect and I'm not huge on cgi but I liked it

7Friday the 13th (1980)

Better than Halloween: better music, more mysterious killer and than more iconic since 3d chapter, more gore (Savini! ) Don't listen those that say carpenter invented Slasher with Halloween, it was already done with Black Christmas and some giallos as well.
I like Halloween but I love Friday
Oh yes, by the way, TCM is absolutely not a slasher! And if Scream gave Slasher movies a second born, you can't put it at the same level as 70-80s classics. And to finish, Jason rules!
