Halloween Special: Our Exclusive Reprint Interview with Horror Author Matt Serafini!
10/29/2015 1:42:00 PM by Frank Hill






I've always loved slasher movies. The combination of likeable young characters, isolated and atmospheric environments, crazed killers and, hopefully, awesome gore FX really captured the attention of my younger self. As an adult, I've got a lot of nostalgia for those movies, but you can't fill 300 pages with people wandering into the woods and dying, so I wanted to take those classic elements and weave them into a more complex narrative.

I feel like the slasher film is poised to make a comeback. This stuff is cyclical, and I think the serious slasher film has been away from the screen for so long that it could feel completely new to audiences once again.


From our 2014 Halloween copy of Maximum Metal magazine--read on about Matt's book, the return of slasher films, his history with Megadeth and Napalm Death, and who else he recommends. br>
