Via B&S About Movies-Exploring The Weapons, The Hours and The Motives of Slasher Films

This weekend, after literal months of watching slashers prepping for this October’s Slasher Month event, I started thinking about each subsequent slasher as a game of Clue. To wit: How did each person get killed? What holiday or time of year killed them? And why did they get wiped out? Francesco Mazzei’s 1972 giallo lent this […]

Via B&S About Movies -Poor White Trash II aka Scum of the Earth (1974)
