This book looks at representative slasher films that have been scaring audiences for decades, examining common themes that have emerged in these films, their various sequels, and countless imitators and looking beyond tropes for what these films can teach us about life.
From practical advice to moral platitudes, each chapter considers a different "lesson" that these films teach.
Whether read by scholars or general readers, Life Lessons from Slasher Films offers an entertaining and persuasive look at how life can imitate art.
