    I was waiting on this classic episode. I love these guys but they were way off. The slasher genre had nothing to do with the women’s movement and everything to do with the capitalist movement. Everyone was shocked at how much of a profit Halloween turned on a 300K budget and everyone wanted in on the action. It’s as simple as that. I spit on your grave is an exceptionally vile film but most of them are just Halloween clones, slightly modified.

      You are absolutely right. It has nothing to do with the women’s movement at all. It all happened because Halloween made MONEY, MONEY, MONEY! And Friday the 13th is also a bad example because the killer is a woman who is hungry for revenge for the death of her son. And the POV shots of the killer were used to hide the killer’s identity, so I don’t know where Roger got the idea that it makes the audience root for the killer.

    Completely agree. These slasher movies are nothing more than low-grade attempts to ride on the coattails of Halloween. They did take it too far in calling it a vendetta against women. And “The Howling” and “Motel Hell” are bad examples.
