This weekend may not be Halloween, Thanksgiving or even Christmas, but we’ve got plenty to be thankful for courtesy of indie book publisher Chicago Review Press and author J.A. Kerswell in the form of THE SLASHER MOVIE BOOK, a 208 page tome of terror dedicated solely to the slasher horror subgenre from it’s bloody beginnings all the way through 2011.
First released in the UK as Teenage Wasteland: The Slasher Movie Uncut (2010), this new edition brings back every vividly colorful photo still and movie poster (both foreign and domestic) that appeared in the original with a few updates to boot. Alongside this imagery Kerswell provides a surprisingly in-depth retrospective of the subgenre, covering an even more impressive list of films (my personal favorite being the “Campy and Creepy” section), that culminate in a series of fun micro-reviews, a Top 10 Body Counts list and more – there’s even a Glossary for those new to slasher films!
