Day 3 "Favorite slasher" of the 30 day horror challenge

So what exactly was my pick for favorite slasher? I went with a film that I can watch over and over and over again....and then one more time for good measure. It's that a true sign of a good movie, when you can watch it over and over again? So without further ado, here it is....

The Mutilator. With The Mutilator, the death sequences are gory, brutal, and highly effective. The Mutilator also has suspenseful stalking scenes in which the antagonist lurks about in the shadows keeping an eye on his prey from afar. The slasher elements are creepy and some of the most skillfully delivered of the early to mid 80's slasher craze. They have a way of keeping viewers jittery and on edge throughout. The Mutilator is, at times, goofy, but it's that awwwhhh shucks kind of quality that gives the film personality and makes it so that the characters are relateable. This makes the film's intense death sequences all the more potent. The Mutilator is one of the few films of its era that fully delivers upon the idea of what an 80's slasher should be.

I can't believe that I have never seen The Mutilator....
And, would you mind if I stole those 30 Days of Horror categories, and used them, as well? I've been thinking about taking the 30 entries in April challenge, and the idea of organizing them like that would certainly make success all the more possible.
