About Bat 7048 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance


  1. For me its scream. After growing up watching the classics which ended with the 80s. Scream came out of nowhere and completely change the psychology of the slasher movie. A clever script, great characters, twists, suspense and one of the few Bogey men who is actually human.

    • I loved The Fog, the original of course not the totally rubbish remake!! The music which went with it just added to the great film. The best bits for me were when the dead attacked the men on the boat at the beginning and the end at the lighthouse, the sound of the knife!!

  2. Hands of the Ripper – the bath scene

    One of the first Hammer films I ever saw and was hooked from this moment

  3. The Strangers when Liv Tyler is getting water from the kitchen and you can see the man in the mask in the corner of the room. Freaked me out

  4. A nightmare on elm street when a man is in bed and freddy is underneath and he puts his blades straight through him

  5. The axe scene in American Psycho (soundtracked by Huey Lewis and the News’ Hip to Be Square!) is extremely memorable!

  6. It has to be Halloween (of course it’s the original did you have to ask??!) when Laurie thinks she has killed Michael Myers and you seen him sit up in the background just slightly out of focus. Enough to get you screaming “Run!!!!” at the screen every time.

  7. An American Werewolf in London – It was spectacular to watch as his body, face, and limbs painfully crunched and his skin bubbled as it grew hairy fur and elongated, and his demonic jaws/snout developed savage fangs.

  8. I seem to remember Jason Voorhies in Friday 13th part 7 grabbing a woman who was in a sleeping bag and smashing her against a tree while she was still in the sleeping bag. I quite enjoyed that film.

  9. It has got to be the shower scene from the original Hitchcock version of Psycho. I watched it with my granny and she tried to switch the TV off after that scene saying I was too young at 9 to watch it but I managed to persuade her to let me watch the rest of the film because I loved horror films.

  10. Friday the 13th- Jason Voorhees is one sick guy- Debbies death while laying on the hamock when blood starts dripping down from a mutilated corpse from above and then Jason slowly pokes his ruddy great knife up through the canvas hammock and straight through her body, giving her a nipple piercing like no other!

  11. The one I ALWAYS think of is the ‘killer in the back seat!’ scene in Urban Legend…fair to say I always look in the back of my car before getting inside, especially at night! 😉

  12. Friday the 13th part 3 3D when the “jock” is walking about on his hands and walks into Jason who has a huge blade in his hands…made my eyes water!

  13. While not a slasher per se, the scene in Dial M For Murder, where the scissors go slowly into Anthony Dawsons’ back. That really made me wince.

  14. A Nightmare on Elm Street. This groundbreaking slasher classic delivers an innovative concept, an iconic bad guy and dreamy special effects that create all-time great images like Glen (Johnny Depp) getting sucked into his own bed.

  15. Has to be the start of Halloween when you see the girl slashed through the eyes of the killer, and then realise it’s a child

  16. The Exorcist (original) when Regan has the turning head, and pukes pea green soup lol I wont mention the crucifix!!

  17. I can always remember the shower scene in Psycho (the original) or Jamie Lee Curtis hiding in the wardrobe in Halloween (The First)

  18. Does Suspiria count as a slasher? If it does, the woman being stabbed, falling through the glass ceiling and being hung in the process. Balletic violence.

  19. Not exactly scary, but the bit in Halloween where Michael Myers comes out of the door in his Halloween costume right at the beginning of the movie.

  20. friday the 13th part 7. the scene where the guy is having a look around the kitchen in the dark, and a flash of lightning briefly illuminates jason in the corner of the room, holding a big knife.

    cleverly done, almost subtle, jump scare.

    maybe the best film in the franchise in general actually.

  21. The shower scene in Psycho.
    So cleverly done with no sound effects therefore relying on the shrieking soundtrack for impact and the fact that there is no actual shot of the slashing but rather focussing on the knife and blood splatters!
    Much better than being in your face.

  22. friday the 13th part 2 right at the end when the banging at the door turns out to be a dog and you think they are safe, then bang jason comes barging through the window

  23. Nighmare on elm street the bed scene! first one I ever saw as I turned the tv over by accident and my brother was watching it in his room.

  24. Psycho Shower scene because of the way the music is used to punctuate the slashing ( excuse the pun! ) The effect has so often been replicated but not often has it hit the spot in quite the same way!

  25. I find any horror movie funny as I know its only a film, so I would go for either Scary Movie or Tucker & Dale vs.Evil. Both movies are really funny.

  26. Scream is my most memorable. I was super shocked Drew Barrymore was killed off within the first five minutes of the film. It made horror movies feel fresh and exciting again

  27. The Strangers scares me the most, something about a remote farmhouse and a guy with a bag on his head, terrifying movie, love it!

  28. nightmare on elm street – when freddie is coming scraping his slasher glove along everything as he chases his victim x
