Genre of movie where the plot revolves around a group of teenagers in a remote place who are systematically killed off by a monster or evil force. Jason & Friday the 13th was probably the original hack & slash movie.

Key points:
1.The victims never seem to realise that leaving the area may be a healthy alternative to staying close to the monster.

2. There is usually a scene where a scantily clad girl is chased through heavily wooded area.

3. There is always one of the group and a surviving bit of the monster or egg ect left at the end of the movie for a sequel.

The film Scary Movie is a parody of this genre.

Hack and Slash also is the name of a computer game.
Timmy: Are you coming to see Nightmare on Elm Street 106, 'Freddies walking frame' tonight.

Tammy: No thanks, I have seen enough hack and slash movies this year.

A comedy swordplay act that is totally freaking awesome. Done by Spencer Humm and John Davis, this is one act you don't wanna miss. They have 2 dvds and a bunch of t-shirts. Hack and Slash is awesome. Oh yeah.
Buy Hack and Slash T shirts so that Slash can get a new dirtbike to chase those pesky amish.
