Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film (2006)

While this Starz produced documentary is not a vintage film it does a wonderful job of tracing the slasher flick sub-genre of horror from Psycho to modern day films such as Saw.  The list of films that appear in this movies is exhaustive and includes classics as well as rotten tomatoes.  If you have any love for these kinds of films then this documentary is a must see.  Lots of in depth interviews with some my favorite directors [John Carpenter, Wes Craven] and make up effects gurus [Tom Savini, Greg Nicotero].  I streamed Going to Pieces on Netflix.  It is also available for purchase through Amazon.  Nicely done!
