SLASH FACTS RSS
It’s summer. And as it gets hotter, tensions grow higher. Luckily for horror freaks like us, we tend to stray away from the blazing sun. And for the real freaks out there that The Nightmare Shop loves so much, we know that this time of the year is really a trap! Open water, Black Lagoons, Crystal Lakes, and Swamp Things? Yeah right! I’d much rather stay inside and watch a few nice folks get shredded like cabbage. I give you High Tension.
There’s no one who can love you quite like your parents. But let’s face it. Sometimes, parents can be lame. In the words of Will Smith, “Parents just don’t understand.” I believe that this is exactly how Norman Bates felt in one of the most beloved films in and outside of the horror genre, Psycho. It’s often considered one of the most iconic movies of the baby boomer era and in my opinion, still remains to hold up the standards of modern-day slasher films. Alfred Hitchcock not only set the bar for all future horror films with Psycho, but built a foundation for the films we all are fans of. Slashers.
