John Carpenter's Halloween, released on October 25, 1978, marked the beginning of the horror film's most colorful, controversial, and successful offshoot--the slasher film. Loved by fans and reviled by critics for its iconic psychopaths, gory special effects, brainless teenagers in peril, and more than a bit of soft-core sex, the slasher film secured its legacy as a cultural phenomenon and continues to be popular today. This work traces the evolution of the slasher film from 1978 when it was a fledgling genre, through the early 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, the significant date or setting, and the point-of-view of the killer. The chapters that follow are devoted to the years 1978 through 1986 and analyze significant films from each year. The Toolbox Murders, When a Stranger Calls, the Friday the 13th movies, My Bloody Valentine, The Slumber Party Massacre, Psycho II, and April Fool's Day are among those analyzed. The late 90s resurrection of slasher films, as seen in Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, is also explored, as well as the future direction of slasher films.

The Aliens’ initial attacks were precise and devastating. Traversing the planet under the cover of darkness, they eliminated most of the Worlds’ leaders and crippled their militaries all in one night. The horrific assaults continued unchecked as the thousands of alien craft circled the globe like locust, killing anyone in their path. For those who saw their methods and survived, it was clear that the invaders wanted to do one thing, remove all human life from the planet. Our only recourse was to rely on the Continuity of Government plan, and the people with the background to try and maintain a working government. The surviving leadership would do all they could to try and put things back together and to preserve what they could, but would preservation be enough? After a harrowing escape from the initial Alien attack, with his wife and only a part of his family, it was a different world for Lieutenant General, Michael Patrick, United States Army Reserve. No longer would he be just a small town lawyer, or a tired washed-up former special operator and relic of the Cold War. Now it would fall to General Patrick to piece together the military forces that would stop the onslaught. Together with other old soldiers and the survivors of the various armies and navies from around the globe, they would pull themselves together as a fighting force. Their one thought, their one mission, was not just to preserve life, but to take back the night.
