Unlike many B movies the acting here is especially decent and doesn't take you away from the storyline in the slightest. Admittedly this doesn't have that much of one but what it does have is easy enough for a second grader to decipher but excusable because of many reasons. Firstly, this is a explosively fun flick, chock full of scenes that run far beyond Over-The-Top, camp and cheese though all manage to stay within the boundaries of a cohesive storyline. On a first watch basis from the soundtrack's brilliant vibe you would think you were listening to something that John Carpenter left on the cutting room floor.
In a nutshell The Slashening is an excellent example of a labor of love produced by individuals who have an intimate knowledge of the horror/low budget arena with the understanding of how to formulate a product that keeps an audience's attention all the while having them guess as to what feature this film may be parodying at any exact moment. Following a formulaic pace that genre fans have become comfortable with The Slashening boasts an explosive finale that many will never guess at but will either applaud or mutter, “WTF!”, at whilst rolling their eyes.
