RANKED! The Best Scary Slasher Movies Ever

Just to clarify, a slasher movie revolves around some sort of psychopathic killer with an affinity for sharp objects. This killer stalks their victims until achieving the Jackson Pollock climax they so desire (if Pollock had used gore). As a subgenre of horror films, slasher films reached the height of their popularity in the ’70s and ’80s. There have been some decent ones since but nothing that compares to the young-adult slaying, damn-near indestructible, sometimes supernatural serial killers of the 20th century. With that in mind, here is our list of the best slasher movies ever made.
