One thing’s for certain: No one will ever say “2020 was a typical year for horror movies”—in fact, this year hasn’t been typical in any way whatsoever! The COVID-19 pandemic came out of nowhere, but we’re not out of the woods yet; and how daily life will be affected moving forward remains to be seen. Since movie theaters are potential infection hot zones, many of the films originally slated for Q1 & Q2 2020 have been postponed.
This means that many of the horror movies we had hoped to have seen by now are back in the vault. Some will be shown later in 2020 while others are now being held until 2021. Still, this doesn’t mean that there haven’t been many outstanding genre releases in the past six months—and that’s what this list is all about.
Aquaslash (Directed by Renaud Gauthier)
Terror awaits a group of high school graduates when a psychopath uses the unstoppable speed and turns of a water slide to his murderous advantage.
Porky’s meets Friday the 13th in this irreverent, retro slasher throwback from Canada. Unique in its build towards a singularly shocking sequence, Aquaslash is way more exciting than your typical trip to the water park (although those who see it may never have the courage to hop down a waterslide again!). I’d love to feature this sick flick on an upcoming episode of Chronic Horror!
