The Silence of the Lamb

Slasher movies follow a certain pattern.In a horror picture there is the killer of course but there are also other factors that are consistent.For instance, the use of weapon is significant.The weapon of choice is mostly one that allows “intimacy” such as a blade or saw where the killer has to be in a very close proximity to the victim.Then there is always that terrible place in which something bad has happened to the attacker.This place is known to those of the movie to be avoided like a plague.The victim of choice is always a young, sexy, sometimes blond, bombshell which who has enough brains as a pea.
