By CORY CARRThe Slasher Movie Power Hour is two things;
1. A Slasher Movie Documentary
Calling it a "Documentary" might be a bit of a stretch, but it does celebrate the horror sub-genre in it's entirety from the 60's to the first decade of the 00's.
This video contains sixty clips, from sixty trailers of the most memorable slasher movies ever made. No sequels and no re-makes allowed. It begins with proto-slashers such as Peeping Tom and Psycho, moves through the Italian Giallo and grindhouse/exploitation eras before settling into the golden age of the American slasher movie -- from Halloween through the 80's. Things got a little lame in the mid-90's but picked up again with Scream and all of it's followers.
There are literally hundreds of slasher movies, so I tried to pick some of the most famous and most widely enjoyed. I could have chosen sixty clips from just the 80's or from the films of the Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, ect. franchises exclusively, but I wanted to make something a little more informed.
There were a few that I wanted to include but couldn't find the trailer so exceptions had to be made. There were a few that I could only find a trailer of poor quality but felt that they were important enough so I included them anyway. Like I said, exceptions had to be made. NOTE: Last House of the Left is misspelled, I know but oh well. Sorry.
2. A Drinking Game
How do you play? Well that's an easy question. The only rule is that you must drink one shot of beer every minute for sixty minutes, hence the name "Power Hour".
How do you win? Another easy question. If you get drunk, you win! It's just that easy.
There are "Beer Break"s between each set of ten clips, but even those you won't want to miss.
DISCLAIMER: Slaughter Film does not endorse underage drinking, drinking and driving, or drinking and jumping on a trampoline. We here at Slaughter Film learned that one the hard way. So remember, always drink responsibly.
