Exploitation Extober Special: Slashers!

Welcome once again to MMB, the blog which provides the newest newly news in history ever. Well, not really though! It's new news, but you might have noticed that i haven't been able to post this week. I feel sad because i can't provide you with the awesomeness of last Exploitation Extober

Well, i'm trying to make this up to you. Firstly, i'd like to present Bloodtober, the alternative version of EE! This is only the first episode, you can find more lolzworthy episodes on their playlist. ( It's a fun storyline between both brothers and yes, Ryan is the crazy one )

The Best Slashers of the Century
A slasher film is a type of horror film typically involving a psychopathic killer stalking and killing a sequence of victims in a graphically violent manner, often with a cutting tool such as a knife or axe.

The mother of the slasher film is Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho!(1960). Another one is Peeping Tom(1960) and the earliest slasher film  Thirteen Women(1932). The Slasher genre especially grew in the sixties and seventies. There were several subgenres, like Italian Giallo. The most important one of the giallo's was Blood And Black Lace. ( I'm not going to name the obvious movies like Nightmare on Elm Street )


The Story: Blood and Black Lace  is a 1964 Italian thriller film directed by Mario Bavahe story concerns the stalking and brutal murders of various scantily-clad fashion models, committed by a masked killer in a desperate attempt to obtain a scandal-revealing diary.The film is generally considered one of the earliest and most influential of all giallos, and served as a stylistic template for the “body count” slasher films of the 1980’s
The AwesomenessThe masked man was an inspiration for many filmmakers and comic writers. He kind of looks like Rorschach from Watchmen, doesn't he?  The movie was voted #85 among "The 100 Scariest Movie Moments" by the Bravo Channel.

BLACK CHRISTMAS( nope, not a blaxploitation!)

The Story:A sorority house is terrorized by a stranger who makes frightening phone calls and then murders the sorority sisters during Christmas break.

The Awesomeness: It does look "boring" in 2011, right? Well', you have to realize that we are resistant against violence now. "Thanks" to violent tv-series, games and music we can handle it. I heard some complaints that these oldies are not scary enough. I know, that's the whole point of EE.

The Story: A motley crew of tourists embark on a boat ride of the haunted Louisiana bayous where they learn the terrifying tale of local legend "Victor Crowley"; a horribly disfigured man who was tragically and accidentally killed with a hatchet by the hands of his own father. But when the boat sinks and the ghost story turns out to be real, the group tries desperately to escape the swamp with their lives...and all of their pieces. Hatchet marks the return of Old School American Horror. Stay out of the swamp...
The Awesomeness A whole swamp of fun! It's a fun slasher movie but nothing more. Definitly not the return of Old School American Horror. but it's a fun film! Anyhow, it's from 2007. slasher films are very much alive!


The Story: On the surface Leslie Vernon (Nathan Baesel) seems like your average, small-town, nice guy. He has goals, ambition and aspirations to... follow in the footsteps of his long-time heroes Fredddy Krueger, Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees and be the world's next great psycho-slasher. A true self-promoter, Leslie gives documentary filmmaker Taylor Gentry (Angela Goethals) and her crew exclusive access to his life as he plans and executes his next great reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them.
The Awesomeness: a mockumentary about a serial killer? Comon, that's just way too awesome!


The Story: A psychotic murderer institutionalized since childhood escapes on a mindless rampage while his doctor chases him through the streets.

The Awesomeness: Thanks to Halloween, we now have genre standards like virginal heroines, masked, unstoppable killers and open-ended conclusions. Its success opened the door for the flood of slasher movies during the '80.The story is as simple as a scary bedtime story but it's so perfectly executed, from the direction to the acting to the creepy score, that Halloween has become a legend. 

 urban fucking renewal

Not a slasher but definitly an exploitation film!
The Plot: Brick Bardo is a cop from another planet who is forced to land on Earth in pursuit of criminals. Though regular sized on his home planet, he is doll-sized here on Earth, as are the fugitives who have landed as well. While Brick enlists the help of an impoverished girl and her son, the bad guys enlist the help of a local gang.

When word leaks out as to his location, all hell breaks loose. Brick is besieged by an onslaught of curious kids, angry gang members, and his own doll-sized enemies, and he must protect the family who has helped him and get off the planet alive.

I'm sorry for the short Exploitation Extober Month. I did not have time to do these because of personal reasons. I wish you a GREAT Halloween! 

Extra Question: Our favourite horror movie is "The Shining". What's your favourite Scary Movie?

17 opmerkingen:

  1. I can watch horrors only if somebody holds me... which is a good excuse for being held.

  2. Halloween was a great one, black christmas I remember vaguley, rest not sure if I saw or not. Even with increased violence and crap like that, the remakes still suck worse than the original's so that doesn't make a movie, no matter how much people whine.

  3. I'm going for pop corns to watch the videos. (:

  4. I only watch horrors if
    somebody holds me *opp Sex*... which
    is a good excuse for being
    held and watchn it. Wink


  5. Black Christmas was way ahead of its time when it came to violence in the 70's. It was a well done film that didn't rely entirely on shock moments like today's films do.

  6. my favorite horror movie is evil dead 2
