Episode 43 of Mirage, Lee Forman is back this time we Speculate on Slasher Fiction and fiction and film.

“Slasher is a very popular horror film subgenre, but it is also a term used to describe books of the same nature. Slasher Horror often involves a large cast of victims that are slaughtered one by one. The antagonist is usually a psychopathic murderer that acts alone. The deaths are brutal and graphic. Torture is also common in Slasher stories. The psycho in the Slasher subgenre mostly prefers cutting tools. A knife, axe, chainsaw, machete, etc. Other methods could be used as well though: meat hook, pick axe, baseball bat. A lot of gore and sexual themes are common in these novels.” –
