Going to Pieces The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film 1978 to 1986 characters ☆ 107 Adam Rockoff ô 7 free download free read á eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ô Adam Rockoff Y 1980s when it was one of the most profitable and prolific genres in Hollywood on to its decline in popularity around 1986 An introduction provides a brief history of the Grand Guignol the pre cinema forerunner of the slasher film films such as Psycho and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and cinematic trends that gave rise to the slasher film Also explained are the slasher film's characteristics conventions and cinematic devices such as the final girl the omnipotent killer the relationship between sex and death t. i love slasher movies they re the best absolutely the best my top three favorite movies ever are a nightmare on elm street scream and the slumber party massacre so believe me when i say that my opinion of this book has nothing to do with what i think of slasher movies in general the reason i ve made sure to preface with that is because i can only assume that somehow adam rockoff is going to stumble on this review and criticize me for being some sort of Anti Slasher Pundit because this book reeks of defensiveness i m sympathetic to people who are slasher fans being a Bit defensive because i do think these movies get a teeeensy bit of undeserved criticism but what adam rockoff does here is he loses his critical thinking due to that misogynistic elements being prevalent no you re overanalyzing slashers wanting to get into the minds of the killers ever a ridiculous concept forget psycho and peeping tom which he mentions at the beginning of the next chapter forget halloween which he has a whole chapter on there are some interesting ideas in this book admittedly i like how he very briefly unfortunately takes a look at how sensationalized violence is often used as a defining element of slashers but that doesn t make movies like commando and rambo slashersso that s what i call a compliment sandwich where i put a compliment between my hatred so i can let it die i really thought the meat and potatoes of this book the history would be pretty interesting but it just isn t there s an extreme inconsistency to the way it s paced which is extremely important in any sort of historical account and then you get to parts where there s just no connecting thread from paragraph to paragraph after these long sections where say he goes in depth on the entire filmography of a filmmaker and then suddenly afterwards he moves onto some completely unrelated moviei hate rockoff s opinions too every time he talks about anything with any sort of personal touch i just start retching internally i could probably flip through and stop on any random page spit and it d land on him sneering at a sociological analysis of a film or describing a movie he doesn t like as being entirely without merit i ll be completely honest and say that i didn t finish this book and i m glad i didn t finish it because i could be looking at a list of slasher movies on letterboxd and then actually watching them and forming my own opinions all that this book is really worth being used as is a long winded list of films and it s not like there aren t plenty of comprehensive ones out there for free
