4 of 6 viewers "Like" "Slashers" (2001, Canada)
Here's what the citizens of the Overlook Theatre had to say:

The Great Hornito - "This movie had a lot of potential but the bad acting and horrible writing made it fall short. The slashers were hella cool though." - 2 Stars

Book Wyrm - "If you like "Battle Royale" chances are you'll like this too. A classic death game with a low budget, "Slashers" has something for everyone." - 5 Stars

Lord Battle - *Spoiler* - "Decadent Japan hosts a show that features slashers killing greedy people, Awesome right?! Only problem is terrible writing. I really loved the film but as it rolled on the dialogue and acting killed it. The worst part is two of the three slashers die in such a way that guarantee no one will ever respect them." - 3 Stars

Huntress - "A movie can only get away with so much before it's un-watchable... this one really dared my patience." - 3 Stars

Bug - "The characters were well done but the lines and the acting was bad." - 3 Stars

Brewha - "It lost me at Megan." - 2 Stars

The Overlook Theatre Final Rating*
The problem with "Slashers" isn't the low budget because it actually kinda works for it, like if you have ever been to a local haunted house on Halloween, it ends up feeling like that. The real problem is the fact the 80% of the film is the characters analyzing the situation via poor dialogue, I mean the whole people dying on TV for a chance at money is pretty thought provoking (even though its done to death, pun intended) on it's own, we don't need the movie constantly reminding us. Also it's a little strange the film is supposed to take place in America but the cast all share some pretty obvious Canadian accents... Still the slashers were pretty cool and  it is a very cool concept, this film is at least worth one watch.

*Based on the star ratings turned in by character reviewers, others viewed and got to "Dislike" or "Like" but that does not effect the rating.
