List: Top 3 Slasher Films

List: Top 3 Slasher Films

This week on Episode 296 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by Halloween (2018), we discussed our Top slasher films. Slasher films have been around for a long time imprinting some of the most iconic imagery and characters we’ve ever seen in film. Whether you’re talking about Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Norman Bates, Chucky or Leatherface, there are so many great villains in this genre. So this was not an easy exercise by any means. Of course, not all of the *films* have been great, but many of them still hold up very well. That said, here are our lists:

(Note: Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections)


1) A Nightmare on Elm Street
2) The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
3) Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives


1) A Nightmare on Elm Street
2) Alien
3) Scream

Honorable Mentions (Combined)
