Critic Reviews for The Slayer

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

  • with its outright refusal to unpick for the viewer the ambiguities that it has so carefully crafted, this film's insular world of entrapment is far closer to the environs of Marienbad than to any Crystal Lake, Camp Blackfoot or Sorority Row.

  • The good bits work as an allegory for how we treat artists- the way in which we, as a society, tolerate the self-destructiveness of certain creative processes.

Audience Reviews for The Slayer

    Has a little bit of a similarity to 'Antropophagus' but without the gross gore, even though some is present. Manages to achieve a bit of a mysterious atmosphere and a couple of nasty moments, but the body count isn't high and it did get a little slow and dull at times, and the ending was a bit lame. It's OK though.

    Fine for early slasher enthusiasts/completists like myself but I don't think anyone looking for a "good" film will like it. The title killer (who may or may not be real) has way too little screen time which is too bad because it looked pretty great.
