SLASHERS!

In 1960, Alfred Hitchcock transformed cinema forever with PSYCHO, introducing a broad audience to Norman Bates and launching a new type of film— the slasher. Since then, the genre has flourished with characters that continue to haunt the popular imagination. From Jason Voorhees to Michael Myers, Patrick Bateman to Leatherface, the relentless, murderous psychopath has become one of the cinema’s most durable subjects. SLASHERS! features the touchstones of the genre, just in time for the Halloween season.
