Overview

The Japanese TV reality game show "Slashers" pits six contestants against three costumed serial killers in a program that features actual deaths to the contestants as they flee the killers in a vast maze filled with obstacles. The last contestant alive wins a million-dollar jackpot. In this episode, the contestants are six Americans, including Megan (Sarah-Joslyn Crowder), who is using her appearance to protest the inhumanity of the program; Devon (Tony-Curtis Blondell), a former special ops soldier anxious for a big payday; and Brenda (Sofia de Medeiros), a beautiful model who doesn't know what she's gotten into until it's too late. The Slashers are Chainsaw Charlie (Neil Napier), a masked hillbilly with a chainsaw; Dr. Ripper (Christopher Piggins), a maniacal surgeon with oversized shears; and Preacherman (Napier), a Bible-thumping program rookie with a razor-sharp crucifix. ~ Buzz McClain

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
You have to be careful not to oversell Slashers as it is not for all tastes, but if you have a penchant for dark comedies with rampant gore and a sick-o sense of humor, this is one terrific movie, an amazing achievement and a highly recommended piece of dementia. Maurice Deveraux directed, produced, wrote, and edited the film, shooting it on video (so as to appear to be a genuine TV show) in what appears to be one long shot from a single camera that follows the contestants around. Blood spurts, bowels disembowel, heads roll, and all manner of mayhem erupts on the screen as the contestants run for their lives from the giggling gaggle of mutant murderers. The depth of detail is impressive, and the sudden twists -- all action stops where there's a commercial break, for instance -- prevent inertia from setting in. It's howlingly funny but has enough genuine tension that the visceral thrills clench in the stomach for that wonderful uncomfortable feeling you get when you're watching something really scary. Charismatic Chainsaw Charlie should get his own movie. No kidding, Slashers is a successful parody that depicts an alternate reality that really isn't too far-fetched.
