Question Best Slasher films of all time

Ok scabs and ghouls...

Here is another sub-genre favorite, Slashers! Here is a genre that thrived during late 70s right thru into the mid-late 80s. Then came back from the dead in the mid-90s and mid to late 00s....

My top picks:

* Black Christmas (1974)
* Friday The 13th Part 3 (1982)
* Scream (1996)
* My Bloody Valentine (1981)
* Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon (2006)
* The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
* A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
* Saw (2004)
* The Burning (1981)
* Halloween (2007)
* Psycho II (1983)
* I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
* Wrong Turn (2003)

Honorable mention: The Prowler (1981), Bride Of Chucky (199, April Fool's Day (1986), The Strangers (200, Terror Train (1980), Sleepaway Camp (1983), Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers (198, Scream 2 (199, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Part II (1986), Maniac Cop (198, Prom Night (1980), Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), & Stage Fright (1987)...There is plenty more but I had to compose myself!

Thoughts?

This is one sub-genre that seems to be making a come back or at least in the sense of the word. With the possibilty of Behind The Mask 2, Hatchet III, Scream 5, Halloween III & a new Texas Chain Saw Massacre 3 (3-D) among some upcoming releases such as Wrong Turn 4 & ChromeSkull: Laid To Rest 2 on the way, it seems that the slasher genre is slicing/dicing its way onto the screen (scream) once again!

You listed all the great ones already, but I'll rework it, and replace the Halloween remake with the original since I'm not a fucking head-case like you.

I'll add:
- High Tension (2003)
- Madman (1982)

Both personal faves of mine. High Tension may be unconventional, but it's beautifully directed, and Madman has nostalgic value to me, and really did creep me out a bit.

One of the best wasn't even mentioned though...

The Prowler

In terms of creative kills, I think DREAM MASTER takes the cake.

I'd definitely add Laid To Rest to my list. Really for the kills alone, heh.
