Agreed, Laid to Rest will be in my top 10 recent slashers as well. It almost made my top 10 full stop.

Chromeskull, the sequel, would be lucky to make my top 100.

Gutterballs is certainly not for everyone, but I really like it.

I think i'll rewatch Gutterballs next week. I don't remember an awful lot about it even though i've seen it three times.

It was rather nasty though, the rape especially.

Top 10 Slashers you say? Don't mind if I do!

10. Maniac (Remake :P)
9. My Bloody Valentine
8. Black Christmas
7. The Burning
6. The Final Terror
5. Happy Birthday To Me
4. Candyman
3. Nightmare on Elm St
2. Halloween
1. Just Before Dawn

I've picked 10 which generally fit into most peoples definitions of a slasher, as everyone seems to have a different one as I found researching in an attempt to make a single unifying definition a while back (spoiler alert: a fruitless effort). So here we have classic slashers with the typical elements, no giallos, no close or maybes, but I have forgiven the supernatural element for Candyman and ANOES, which can sometimes get disqualified with strict definitions

Nice list Fuzzy.

I notice quite a few have listed Happy Birthday to Me.

I have it and also Bloody Birthday. I know one of them is really good but can never remember which, therefore it can't be that memorable after all.

I actually prefer Bloody Birthday to Happy Birthday to Me but am probably in the minority on that one!
