Black Christmas (1974)

One of the godfathers of the slasher as we now know it, Black Christmas is much more than an important stop on the roadmap of a subgenre. Set at a sorority home in the days leading up to Christmas, Bob Clark's classic film begins with lots of festive holiday atmosphere, then confidently turns everything toward the horrifying. The creepy phone calls, the unconventional murder weapons, and the genuine sense that we might never truly understand what went wrong with the killer all add to the sense of watching something truly creepy. It's a legendary film for a reason.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981)

Don't let the made-for-TV movie circumstances of this film fool you. Dark Night of the Scarecrow is some seriously creepy stuff from the early years of the slasher golden age. The story of a small town where a local man was murdered for a crime he didn't commit, it's one of those classic examples of a slasher where the title killer is out for a very particular kind of revenge. That this revenge involves scarecrows, pitchforks, and other farm implements certainly doesn't hurt, and the sense of slow-building menace has made this film one of slasher cinema's great underseen gems.

Hell Night (1981)

One of Linda Blair's best post-Exorcist films, Hell Night emerged in the golden age of slasher cinema and followed one of horror's most fruitful plot paths. Like quite a few other horror films, including fellow slasher Terror Train, it's the story of a hazing ritual gone wrong, but this time the action is moved to a spooky old house, where a group of college students can't quite figure out if the strange happenings are the result of a killer, or something even spookier. It's less high-profile than some of the other films that opened the slasher floodgates in the early '80s, but still well worth a viewing, or two.

M3GAN (2023)

You could call M3GAN other things if you wanted: Techno-horror, artificial intelligence thriller, what have you. But when you look at the body count she leaves behind as she rampages through humanity to protect her chosen little girl, the movie just screams pure slasher. And like so many slashers, the film's deep sense of fun shines through even its darkest moments. If you still haven't seen the horror movie everyone was talking about at the launch of 2023, now's your chance.

Pieces (1982)

After the initial post-Friday the 13th slasher boom, films in the subgenre started pushing the envelope just a little more to get noticed. Pieces isn't the most extreme slasher you'll find from this era of horror history, but it's still one of the most entertaining. As the title suggests, the film follows a killer stalking a college campus in search of... well, pieces. Human pieces. It's not always the most convincing slasher to come down the pike, but watch and you'll see why it remains a cult favorite.

Prom Night (1980)

One of the most famous films from the early golden age of slashers, Prom Night had the advantage of staring Jamie Lee Curtis in one of her first post-Halloween horror roles, but it's a film with more to offer than a recognizable and dynamic star. The film's killer and his distinctive attire is truly effective, as is the way the film builds in the campier elements of the title night with the brutality of the death scenes. It's not quite on Halloween's level, but it's still one of the best of the era.

Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987)

It took seven years to get a sequel to Prom Night, which might explain why the sequel we eventually got isn't really much of a sequel at all. Sure, they share a franchise, but Hello Mary Lou is vastly different from its predecessor, and arguably even more fun. This time around, things take a supernatural approach, with a killer who happens to be a vengeful ghost preying on unsuspecting teenagers as payback for a crime committed against her 30 years earlier. It sounds wild, because it is wild.

Sleepaway Camp (1983)

If you've never seen Sleepaway Camp, you might at least know the film for its infamous ending, still one of the most-discussed plot developments in the entire slasher genre. But the film is about more than a twist ending, and even if you set that moment aside entirely, you're left with a remarkably deft, dakly funny, truly brutal summer camp slasher film featuring some of the genre's most memorable kills.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)

What else is there to say about this horror classic? It's been nearly 50 years, and Tobe Hooper's breakthrough film is still just as nerve-shattering and frightening as it was when the film first rolled through projectors in 1974. Even if you've seen it a dozen times, it's always worth revisiting.

Tourist Trap (1979)

When it comes to the early years of slasher cinema, there's weird, and then there's Tourist Trap weird. Set in and around the title location, the film is a bizarre blend of House of Wax and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, following a group of unsuspecting tourists as they're lured into the lair of a demented supernatural killer with an agenda that will make your skin crawl.
