1:19 am - Break the Mutilation
Trisk ends the Summer of Slashers series of reviews, with The Mutilator, or Fall Break.

It's not quite summer, it's not quite in the woods, but it's a perfect pick to close out the series, so swing by and read the words.

11:52 am - Bite Me!
Got a few days before Trisk uploads the last review for the Summer of Slashers, so thought I'd get in a quickie review or two.

So here's my thoughts on Bite.

A girl goes on vacation, gets a bug bite, and the body horror begins, as her engagement crumbles around her.  Becoming an insect queen sure doesn't help THAT any.

This is VERY much in the same vein as Cronenberg's The Fly, minus the scifi, and it is a fine ascendant to that thrown.  And appropriately, the new insect ruler is a queen.

1:14 am - It's a Madhouse!
Trisk has the latest Summer of Slashers review up, with the cult classic slasher, Madman.

This is, hands down, one of my favourite slashers, right next to The Burning.  Which is funny, because they were both going to be a LOT more similar, but when the folks behind Madman heard about Cropsey's tale being told in Burning, and changed things up.

1:16 am - Cheery Thoughts
And Trisk is updated with the latest review in my summer of slashers, Cheerleader Camp.

It's a different kind of camp, but the deaths are just as deadly.

Or something.

9:37 am - Dead and Roasting
Got another quickie review up on Trisk, and it's still appropriate for the Summer of Slashers.  This one is a new tv series, from Freeform, set at a summer camp that is totally not Camp Crystal Lake, and they even decided to set it in the 80s, so it really captures that whole vibe from Friday the 13th and the like.

I like what I've seen so far, but it hasn't quite won me over.

Oh right, it's called Dead of Summer, and if you're a fan of the genre, it's worth checking out.

9:12 am - You're Feeling Sleepy...
Trisk is updated with the latest review for our Summer of Slashers, the horror classic, Sleepaway Camp!

This is a GREAT movie, if you can get past some elements that some people find problematic.

12:14 pm - Nothing is Final
I've been meaning to review this for Trisk for a few months, but since it's an homage to summer camp slashers, how could I not finally take a look at Final Girls this month?
