    "Sarah, be my bloody valentine"

    (Part of my 'Golden Age Slashers' list)

    The sleepy town of Valentine Bluffs makes the perfect setting for the brutal murders at the hands of the miner with a cheery valentines day backdrop, with a great set of characters that are genuinely likeable, a ton of awesome kills and an all around fun watch.

    Character wise, the final girl Sarah, played by Lori Hallier is awesome and plays the part amazingly, and T.J, her boyfriend,…

    "I realized that what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil."

    John Carpenter's Halloween is simply a masterpiece. While it wasn't the first slasher film, it was the one that defined the genre, and the quintessential example for decades to come.
