This genre requires a minimum body count of at least 4. More is encouraged. Slashers are mainly comprised of explicit graphics depicting creative death scenes. The more creative the better. Bloody disgusting good fun. Meat cleavers, chainsaws, rusty hooks, and a good shovel to finish off the job are the typical tools used by slasher antagonists. Typically the protagonist is the last to go after watching his or her group of close friends get picked off one at a time throughout the film. These are the films that cause us to wonder about that eerie creaking sound we sometimes wake to in the middle of the night.
