"The Slayer" is something of a curiosity for the horror lover in all of us. It's entertaining, the sets are creepy (an island with a deserted 1920's cinema, large ominous house, etc )and the gore is well done, which earned itself a spot on the original DPP Video Nasties list. Let me tell you though that the gore is not extremely intense in that it should be banned, but I must admit that the pitchfork murder was a quilty pleasure (a scene snipped from the original Vipco VHS release). I don't have the space to write a whole sypnosis of the film, but let me tell those of you horror-hounds who wan't to see it, I say: "A horror film from the 80's, uncut version, very atmospheric and good-gory fun". #Check the trailer on You Tube.

THE SLAYER is an effective chiller from the 1970's that was released by the well known VIPCO label that specialises in releasing cult and rare horror films.
This film has an interesting plot, the island setting creates a tense and chilling atmosphere and the killing scenes are handled very stylishly. Th main problem with this is the DVD transfer, it looks like it was cheaply transferred from an old VHS tape. The sound and picture quality is very poor which lets the film down.
It would be great to see Anchor Bay or Blue Underground give this gem of a movie the proper release it deserves!

The Slayer is an atmospheric, weatherbeaten sea-side bound, creepy flick with usual 80's atmospheric music. Occasional bursts of rampant violence caused several moral crusaders back in the heyday of vhs to take umbrage with this moderate imagery. However, its reliant more on the quality of stealth and mental deterioration of characters that are older than usual. Its a bit slow, but hey, lets forgive it for the neat bloody bits..

However, caveat emptor: its a VIPCO release. Which means the picture is ok sometimes when you least expect it, mostly falling down to VHS levels, with random light bleed at the right hand edge. In short, their usual hackneyed half hearted half-baked 'chuck it on disc shaped thing and pray' form of marketing. So don't expect to be impressed. In fact, the ratio is pretty indeterminate as the screen looks 4:3. Interesting film that holds up considering its limits, now made to look worse than it actually is with a cruddy release; the hallmark of Vipco and tatty VHS of a distant era.

I was really hesitant to buy this title, because of the negative reviews here on amazon. I decided to buy and decide for myself if the print quality was sufficient. I have a Yamaha dvd player and a Samsung led television and I did not find any flaw on this release. I found the white stripes on the print charming, a reminder that the medium used to be a film. So my advice is± do not hesitate just go right ahead and buy if you are interested.
