Census Bloodbath: 1982

If you're new to Census Bloodbath, click here.

Phew! We made it out of the slasher gauntlet of 1981! While it's known as the Golden Year, the rather comprehensive scope of this project necessitated that I also visit the worst slasher entries imaginable, so that might be why it took me, oh, two years to finish that particular section... I gotta pick up the pace.

1982 isn't going to give me a chance to catch my breath, because although we've left the Golden Age behind, the slasher boom was still hitting America in full force, giving us the largest quantity of slasher movies in a single year in the history of cinema: a whopping 43. I guess it's time to get cracking and get over the hump! After this, Census Bloodbath will be a breeze, he lied.

So what does 1982 have on offer for us? Take a look...

  1. It's a might undertaking, B, but you're the right guy for the job.

  2. Of this year, I've only seen Tenebre. So 82 is completely over my head. However, I have been needing to see Silent Rage, because I heard it's one of Chuck Norris' more underrated films. Do I smell a collaboration on that one?

    1. I would love to work together on Silent Rage! And if anything, you definitely need to see The Slumber Party Massacre. It's one of my favorites!
