Census Bloodbath: 1983

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

So, it's November, huh? We've finally waded our way through the 1982 portion of the Census Bloodbath marathon! I promise to do my utmost to make sure that this next one doesn't also take four years. For your sake and mine! 

1983 is actually a pretty slim year for the slasher movie (on the scale of the 80's, of course, so there are still 31 of the damn things), as the first wave of the Golden Age starts to wind down. In fact, this is the only year of the 80's that doesn't feature an entry from either Michael, Jason, or Freddy (catch ya next year, buddy!). It was also skipped by Leatherface, though it at least saw the much delayed return of Norman Bates. 

But that franchise dry spell doesn't mean there won't be some excellent entries! Hopefully! Below, you can behold the list of what we'll be covering in the upcoming months, which will be updated with links as we go along.
