Packed with slasher movie reviews and illustrated with an extensive collection of distinctive and often graphic colour poster artwork,
The Teenage Slasher Movie Book also looks at the political, cultural, and social influences on the slasher movie and its own effect on other film genres.

The slasher movie is the most reviled but successful of horror's subgenres. Taking its cue from Hitchcock, grind-house movies, and the gory Italian giallo thrillers of the 1970s, slasher movies brought a new high in cinematic violence and suspense to mainstream cinema. For six bloody years (1978-1984)-the golden age of slashers-cinema screens and video stores were stalked by homicidal maniacs with murder and mayhem on their minds. The Teenage Slasher Movie Book details the subgenre's surprising beginnings, revels in its g(l)ory days, and discusses its recent resurgence.
