For those of you who aren’t familiar with Slasher, it’s an eight part mini series written by Aaron Martin. This Canadian mini series was filmed in Parry Sound, Ontario and Sudbury, Ontario. It premiered in March of this year so I’m a little late to the party, but better late than never!
It stars Katie McGrath as Sarah, Brandon Jay Mclaren as Dylan, Dean Mcdermott as Iain, and Steve Byers as Cam.
In the first episode we see Sarah’s parents get murdered within the first five minutes when her father lets a strange hooded man into their home on Halloween(1988), thinking it’s his friend. That whole first scene was both very comediec and gory. It definitely had a very campy vibe to it, which was why I knew I’d enjoy the rest of the series so much.
By the second scene it’s modern day and we see Sarah and her husband Dylan moving into the home her parents were brutally murdered in. Shortly after they move back to town, a bunch of copycat murders start to take place and everyone in town is a suspect. Including Sarah.
I won’t say too much more because I don’t want to give anything away. However, if you’re a fan of fun, campy, and kind of cheesy horror, you will love Slasher. You’ll get lots of laughs as well as gore. As I said, it’s definitely cheesy, but the writing is there too.
I haven’t been able to find out any info about the release of season two, but season one will be perfect for you guys to binge watch this Halloween! I hope you all get a chance to check it out! Remember, support Canadian horror!
