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

Based on Adam Rockoff's 2002 book Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film, 1978-1986, this documentary focuses primarily on horror/slasher films created in the United States and Canada during those years and into the 90s. 

Many genre stalwarts are interviewed and include: John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Sean S. Cunningham, Harry Manfredini, Tom Savini, Robert Shaye, Stan Winston, and Rob Zombie. Eminently watchable, I do wish the interviews were fuller, giving more time and depth for the subjects to expound further.
