best-suited for someone who'd not only never seen a horror movie but who'd never even heard of such a thing. His mind would be blown.
Audience Reviews for Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film
A fun doc on the history of Slasher films from the early voyueristic films like peeping tom and Psycho right up the remakes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Hostel. It's not that indepth but it is good how it charts how the studios wanted to cash in on the success of Halloween, Friday the 13th. Then there were tons of low budget stuff in the 80's before it picked up again in the 90's with bigger budgets and a twist to the genre with the likes of Scream. Also covers make-up artist Tom Savini and interview with all the best directors of the genre. The DVD also has a few quizzes and true or false to play with, a nice touch!
A good watch but it's almost just a commercial for the genre. They get into the history of how people were against the slasher flicks when they were coming out but there was no one to talk about the other side of the situation. It's a very one sided doc. This is one for the fans of the genre, by fans of the genre.
Brilliant documentary about the history of slasher films as told by John Carpenter, Wes Craven, makeup artist Tom Savini, and various actors and filmmakers of the horror genre. If you're a horror enthusiast, this is a must see.
