Product Description

SLASHERS, Japan s number one reality show is having its first all-American special! Six lucky contestants, chosen from thousands of applicants, will have a chance to win millions of dollars - all they have to do is stay alive!

Once they enter the dangerzone game area, all hell breaks loose as they fight for their lives against three bloodthirsty Slashers: Chainsaw Charlie, Preacherman and the psychotic medic Dr. Ripper. These will hunt, chop and skewer whomever gets in their way - there are no prisoners in this action packed, blood soaked, extreme horror death sport!

Written and Directed by Maurice Devereaux (Fangoria s Lady Of The Lake) and with special makeup effects by Adrien Morot (Bone Collector, Screamers, Storm Of The Century), Slashers is a non-stop adrenaline rush of terror and excitement!

THERE ARE NO RULES! KILL OR BE KILLED! SEX! NUDITY! VIOLENCE! ANYTHING GOES FOR RATINGS, IN THIS ULTIMATE REALITY EXTRAVAGANZA!

Review

Full of over the-the-top vintage Peter Jackson Gore. --Unreal Expectations

A fairly slick little production, with some impressive set designs and inventive lighting. --Monsters At Play

Overall, it s a well done satire both of human society and other movies, well worth watching. --Horror Movie Repertoire

Special Features

None.

I was really expecting a crappy film, and I actually found a very well executed B-Film. With almost no budget the director has created a really nice looking film. Plus the actors tend to do a decent job (some of the leads fall flat at times, but considering that the film had almost no shooting time, it's understandble). The director really succeded in making the film seem like one continuous shot, and really captures the TV show feel. Plus with his budget he created some really nice gore effects (some look a bit fake, but in the long run, are way better than most films with the same budget).
I would totally recommend this film. Great gore, decent acting, and a real great example of a low budget film succeding. See this movie.

This is simply one of the greatest independent films I have ever watched (and I have seen more than my share, trust me). Like Daniel Minahan's brilliant 2001 film SERIES 7: THE CONTENDERS, Maurice Deveraux's SLASHERS plays like you are watching an episode of a reality TV show. The fact that it's shot on video only adds to the effect of watching it on your television at home. However, this is where the similarities end, because SLASHERS is a straight-up horror flick that is tailor made for fans who want something new and exciting. The gore is endless and cartoonish, the scares and suspense are well-executed, and the acting is first rate (particularly Sarah Crowder's performance as one of the lead characters). Sometimes it feels like you're in a haunted house attraction, only the threat of death is real. To top it all off, SLASHERS is filmed as one continuous shot (like Hitchcock's ROPE and Josh Becker's RUNNING TIME), using all manner of tricks to fool you ... Given the conditions Deveraux filmed under (and the extremely small budget), all this makes the film an even greater cinematic achievement. I was falling asleep when I put this movie on, but was wide awake for its entire 99-minute running time! I really got into it. A truly incredible and original film indeed.
The DVD release is also excellent, featuring animated menus, full length commentary, an hour-long documentary, and more. (And no, I don't work for the people who made this movie).

"Slashers" is Canadian B-movie with grade-A entertainment value. It is an excellent game show/reality show satire that follows in the footsteps of such campy cult classics as Death Race 2000 and The Running Man and manages to live up to if not outdo both even without the star power of Arnie or Sly. The premise is a combination of those two films with a dash of Battle Royale for that upbeat Asian flavor. Six American contestants appear on a Japanese game show where they are trapped in a maze with three cartoonish-but-brutal murderers (Slashers). If any of them can survive, they can split the millions in prize money amongst themselves. The only rule: there are no rules. Excepting of course, not interfering with the cameraman and remaining stationary during the requisite commercial breaks -even if there's a knife-wielding maniac sitting on top of you at the time. The film is mesmerizing, insanely entertaining, and will likely leave you begging for more. What it lacks in production values and quality acting it more than makes up for with sheer enthusiastic carnage and conceptual brilliance. Independent no-budget horror does not get a whole lot better.

The cast of characters is an interesting bunch. The perky Japanese hostess and her team of pep girls (complete with human skull pom-poms) are hard not to like.

This is one of the worst movies I have seen this year and that is why I like. The premise is one of the best I have seen and it has a good plot. The movie is about a Japanese game show where a group of six or seven people go into an arena with three serial killers and try to survive. The survivors win ten million dollars that they split, plus two million for every killer they kill. The game show is the world's most watched T.V. show and in the movie it is making its first appearance in America. The acting is not horrible but it is far from good. There are a few good actors in this movie but there also bad and mediocre actors as well. The death scenes are B-rate but are very good for the budget that the producer was on. Unless you are a fan of B-rate movies, don't buy this movie. If you are a fan of B-movies, go buy this movie because you will be laughing your head off. "Supercool"

SOMEONE said in these reviews the acting was bad, but it's really amazing how well the acting was. Great story about a Japanese game show where six people are hunted and killed by three slashers. You'll have fun watching this movie, as it's shot in the point of view of a gameshow. And, it's full of hot Japanses girls!
