* ''VideoGame/DeadByDaylight'' has also entered the fray, again with very similar design to ''Last Year'' and ''Friday the 13th'', once more pitting a group of player-controlled stereotypes against one of several unique masked maniacs. One of the game's [[DownloadableContent DLCs]] even adds the characters from ''Film/{{Halloween}}''.

* ''VideoGame/SlayawayCamp'' is a voxel-animated sliding puzzle game with the twist that you control a serial killer hunting down and killing victims in gruesome fashions. It pays homage to many slasher films of the 1980s, especially the original ''Friday the 13th.'' The different sections of the film are all represented by an [[Main/Sequelitis ever-increasing number of sequels]], each featuring different killers and different obstacles/traps.

The history of slashers can be divided into several distinct waves. ''Film/{{Psycho1960}}'' is often cited as having a direct influence over the genre by introducing sympathetic characters that are unexpectedly murdered during the course of film, along with pushing the boundaries of sex and violence. The genre also has its roots in ''{{giallo}}'' films, a genre of Italian murder mysteries which rose to popularity in the 60s and 70s, best known for their then-groundbreaking use of bloody violence and steamy sexuality. Many famed Italian directors, like Creator/DarioArgento, Creator/LucioFulci, and Mario Bava, began their careers in the ''giallos'', directing classic horrors like ''Film/ReazioneACatena'' and ''Film/DeepRed''. The earliest American (and Canadian) slashers, like ''Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre1974'', ''Film/BlackChristmas1974'', ''Film/AliceSweetAlice'', and ''Film/TheTownThatDreadedSundown'', were carved directly out of the giallo mold.
