25 of my Definitive Slashers (plus, a Patreon update!)

Hey all,

Here's a chronological list of 25 of my favorite 'pure' slashers. I've been wrestling with this sub-genre for most of the summer and if you're looking for an easy jump into the waters, this should be a nice beginning. I know there's a lot of the Mount Rushmore of slashers in here but they're just so good that I can't say no. All of these movies are brilliant in different ways.

ALSO: I have a new and improved Patreon up and running at the link below, with flexible tiers and lots of benefits. If you like my writing and are interested in what I have to say, please head over and give it a glance. Tossing in some pocket change would mean the world, and I'd really appreciate it.
