Top 10 slasher killers and heroines

- Advertisement -


The definition of a slasher film varies depending on who you ask, but in general, it contains several specific traits that feed into the genre’s formula. Every slasher has a killer whose identity is often concealed (or at least his face in cases of characters such as Michael Myer and Jason Voorhees) and for no other reason than to color up an empty shell of a character. The killer’s back-story often includes a childhood trauma leading them to a homicidal nature. This of course is a weak attempt by film makers to give these characters a level of sympathy from it’s viewers. Regardless no matter how little dialogue is given to the killer or little character development, he or she is ultimately the star of the film.

Of course every killer needs a victim or victims, and slashers have high standards. They demand them to all be young, attractive and often nude teens who engage in sex, alcohol, drugs and crime. These victims fall prey to the unwritten moral code that bad behaved teenagers will get what they deserve. Criticized for being misogynistic, the films actually always include a strong, independent and virtuous female lead who usually survives at the end. Unlike her peers she avoids drugs, alcohol and holds on to her virginity with dear life, because everyone know that only a virgin stands a chance at survival.

Here is my list of the most memorable killers and heroines in slasher films.
