Slashers (2002) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Low budget production that has uneven acting and a clever premise that never really takes off. Satirizing how far reality/game shows will go is a promising idea, but they needed a bigger budget, better acting and special f/x and a tighter script to successfully pull it off, though there are some good moments here and there.
The film starts off promisingly, but then starts to drag, taking too long to get to the slashing. Let’s face it, that’s what we’re watching a film called Slashers for, right? The second half picks up somewhat, but a little better editing might have helped. See Series 7: The Contenders for a film in the same vein that I think does a better job.
Be sure to check out the “making of” feature in the special features section. It’s fascinating, better than the movie actually. Maurice Devereaux seems like a really dedicated filmmaker, so much so that, though I wasn’t crazy about this flick, I will check out some of his others.
