Let the body count begin! Join us for our five-part series “Horror History”, where we look at how the genre went from being a bump in the night to slaying at the box office. In this episode, we look at the history of slasher movies - from proto-slashers like “Psycho” (1960) and Italian giallo films in the 60s and 70s, to seminal horror movies like “Halloween” (1978), “Friday the 13th” (1980), “A Nightmare on Elm Street” (1984), “Child’s Play” (1988), “Scream” (1996), and more! What was the first slasher movie you ever watched? What’s your favorite? Tell us in the comments!
