I think the one with Zemeckis has better acting, but the one in Amicus has better atmosphere. Both are very creepy, though.

Yeah Stagefright is great. Some really awesome and brutal kills. I love The Church too even more than Stagefright, but it's definitely more of an imagery and atmosphere based film rather than a completely coherent narrative.

Saw is not a slasher.

Anytime, my man. I think we definitely have very similar tastes as far as horror goes.

For me, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is hands down the best slasher film of all time.

I recently watched Midnight Meat Train and quite enjoyed that as well.

It's hard to know where a film crosses the line from a horror flick with gory deaths, to a slasher - does anyone know what I mean?

ETA: and where a film crosses the line from slasher to torture porn. There seems to be a violence spectrum, you know?

I must get around to watching Black Christmas, I've heard so many good things about it. But I'd never actually heard of it until I joined this board a few weeks ago.
