Giallo is a 20th-century Italian thriller or horror genre of literature and film. Especially outside Italy, giallo refers specifically to a particular Italian thriller-horror genre that has mystery elements and often contains slasher, crime fiction, psychological thriller, psychological horror, sexploitation, and, less frequently, supernatural horror elements. In Italy, the term generally denotes thrillers, typically of the crime fiction, mystery, and horror subgenres, regardless of the country of origin.



Slasher movies have been around since far before john carpenter’s shape brandished a kitchen knife against those helpless babysitters back on Halloween in 1977. No, carpenter didn’t invent the genre, he only perfected it. below are the slasher films rottenpop has had the pleasure (or displeasure) to review. I present, the Slashers!

Club Dread (2004)

The entire time that the killer is stalking and killing resort members, the party just keeps rocking. It really delivers on the blood and guts. (65/100)

The Monster at Camp Sunshine (or How I Learned to Love Nature) (1964)

The acting is horrible and the quality is terrible. The soundtrack is atrocious it doesn't fit a single scene. (12/100)

Crazy Fat Ethel II (1987)

I have no idea how I should judge this movie fairly. On one hand I really love the movie as itself, but on the other this is an abortion of a film. (5/100)

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

There are incredible amounts of blood in this movie, accompanied by incredible amounts of Gore. I really am a huge fan, if you haven't noticed, of blood and gore. (91/100)

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)

The famous scene of Jennifer Love Hewitt screaming like a madwoman is done better in parody by Anna Farris in Scary Movie. (59/100)

Popcorn (1991)

I had fun watching this, of course I was a few beers in and could stand a movie this horrid. (44/100)

The Meat Eater (1979)

It could probably pass today as an episode of "Are you Afraid of the Dark" or "Goosebumps" no real gore or actual blood come to think of it. (32/100)

Sleep Away Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988)

This is a great late-night slasher that would have been at home on USA’s Up All Night or something like that. (55/100)
