Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film 18

£10.00

Product description

In this candid, sensational and gore-soaked feature-length documentary, the titans of terror take you on a comprehensively terrifying trip into the very beginnings of the slasher phenomenon.

With its importance, prominence, and newfound legitimacy peaking in the 1980s, that most controversial of horror film sub-genres, the slasher film, has continued to delight fans with its iconic psychopaths, blood-bath of special effects, horny teenagers and outrageous plot-lines for over 50 years. Through their unconventional methods of production, distribution, exhibition and marketing, these deliriously endearing films forever changed both the face and box office fortunes of horror cinema.

This film features a gruesome array of rare, flesh-cleaving clips from a host of genre classics including: Halloween, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, Psycho, Prom Night, When a Stranger Calls, From Dusk Til Dawn, Sleepaway Camp, Last House on the Left and Black Christmas.

Join legendary actors, directors, and producers John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Rob Zombie, Sean S Cunningham, Tom Savini and many more founders and masters of the genre film as they guide you on the journey to the darkest recesses of blood-curdling cinematic shock.

88 minutes, colour PAL.
