John Landis' first full-length documentary receives a simple but effective release on disc in this DVD edition from Docurama. Slasher has been given a letterboxed transfer to disc in the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1, which has also been enhanced for anamorphic playback on 16 x 9 monitors. The images are sharp and well detailed, and the praise Landis heaps on the digital video cameras used for the shoot in his commentary is born out in this disc, which looks unusually strong for a documentary. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo, and the sound is good if not exceptional (through the steady stream of R&B classics on the soundtrack sounds just fine). The feature is in English, with no multiple language options or subtitles included. Bonus materials include an Independent Film Channel short that examines the making of the film, an entertaining selection of deleted scenes, and a lively commentary track featuring director Landis and producer Chris Kobin, the latter a former "slasher"-style used car salesman who offers an inside scoop on the tricks of the car-sales trade. Overall, this is a well-executed release that does right by a very entertaining film.
