Birth of the Slashers
23 October 2018 | by Countess_SupremaSee all my reviews

This episode starts with Halloween (with people like Jamie Lee Curtis, the Soska twins, Bruce Campbell and many others weighing in -- Jamie Lee is great in this), backtracks to Psycho (which starred Jamie Lee's mother!), then to Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Friday the 13th, Maniac and Child's Play. It's really well made with a mix of behind-the-scenes stuff from actors, writers and directors, plus some interesting commentary about how these films were received. Funny to hear Roger Ebert be so off-base about slasher films, though I guess they were a lot more shocking in the 1980s than they are today.
