It seems worthwhile to say slasher is back..
Fear Street did great on Netflix.. Scream and Chucky are being heralded..
Halloween Kills will slash into October box offices unless a Covid variant does first.
But are these slashers worth the hype and hope?
Is it really even needed.
There is a ton of nostalgia for the 1980s and 1990s when slasher was king—but some amazing horror films developed since then that didn’t include bloodbaths ..
Sure slashers had a place and a moral lesson in each flick.
But were they really worth the effort of redoing them again and reintroducing them to a new generation of horror fans ??
And if they are going to bring them will they improve it just quickly try capitalizing on a genre that should be cemented into history???
