Alright, Screamers and Screamettes, it's the last day for comments in the first part of the Great Slasher Research Project of '10.
This s**t just got real!
We've email and comment responses from more than 40 readers, as well as definitions I've culled from academic sources. All told, we're gonna aggregate more than 50 trait lists to create our working "formula" for slasher flicks.
But I can still use more data. The more answers folks submit, the better our definition will reflect the general understanding of what a slasher flick is. So whether you're a long-time slasher flick aficionado or you haven't seen a slasher flick since that VHS tape of Friday the 13th scared you into half a heart-attack at your 14th birthday party sleepover, I want to hear from you.
You can leave an answer here or on the original post, just leave an answer. Do it, for science. And the children. But mostly science.
