First Slashes: THIRTEEN WOMEN and the Dark History of the First Slasher Film

Aug 19, 2014 No Comments by

Whenever the term “first” gets bandied about, make sure you have plenty of salt ready. Usually, whenever something is called the “first,” then a million outraged voices come from the woodwork in order to point out that, in actuality, there was something before the “first.” Therefore, when I call Thirteen Women “the first slasher film,” […]
