Paraskevidekatriaphobia is a term you may think I just made up, but it actually just refers to a specific phobia of Friday the 13th. This superstition behind the day stems from centuries of religious and cultural beliefs. In an interesting coincidence, this year’s Friday the 13th date falls in October, aligning with Halloween’s spooky atmosphere.
Leaning into the date’s superstitious associations, Reveel has compiled a lineup of fun slasher films to mark the occasion. Our 6 film selections contain the archetypal elements that slasher fans expect – scares, gore, and fun slasher villains. While Friday the 13th is not a conventional holiday, in Reveel, it absolutely is.
Here are the 6 slasher movies to check out this next Friday the 13th:
1. SlashFM II
Count Slashula brings more terrifying tales on a Halloween Night.
2. Be Our Guests
Six friends rent a bed & breakfast sitting amongst 40 acres. Throwing one of the biggest parties of the year, it isn’t until the night comes to an end that the real party begins. Terrorizing events cause them to fight for their lives.
3. Slasher Killer Tapes
Police have discovered a compound linked to a series of unsolved murders. Footage was found of a cult group living out their horror fantasies.
4. Darwins Law
Agent Scott Taylor is investigating an illegal killer online game called Darwins Law. Determined to shut it down, he gets too close to discovering who is behind it all and suddenly he disappears… only to discover he is now part of the game himself.
5. Bunnyman Massacre
Bunnyman Massacre aka Bunnyman 2 is the sequel to the original Bunnyman (2011). The adventures of Joe and Bunnyman know no limit of bloodlust and carnage. Bodies pile up as they indiscriminately slaughter anything that crosses their paths.
6. Amber Road
The Amber Road is a place in the digital universe where anything can be bought, sold, and traded: a place where a person can fulfill their darkest desire or unleash their deepest depravity.
