Immortal Serial Killers

Let me make one thing perfectly clear: the slasher genre overall still has quite a bit of life left in it. Recent horror masterpieces like Hush have more than proven that. That being said, we simply don't feel the same sense of menace immortal serial killers like Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger used to muster. These dudes were TERRIFYING. Over time, each of these supposed villains has lost their respective mystique as they've become more insurmountable, and we've almost come to root for them -- effectively turning slasher films into nothing more than snuff films. To remain viable, the slasher genre needs to remain grounded and present audiences with killers who could very much exist in the real world.
