Going To Pieces

3

Working forwards and backwards from the most exquisite slice ’n’ dicer ever made, Halloween (1978), Jeff McQueen’s Going To Pieces: The Rise And Fall Of The Slasher Film seesaws from Peeping Tom and Psycho to Friday The 13th and The Prowler, from the seminal works of Bava and Argento to the reinventions of Craven. Production, distribution, socio-political climate, SFX, censorship… the doc offers plenty of width, little depth and enough gorgeously gory montages to stop Jason dead.
