DVD review: The Housewife Slasher (2012)
When a young girl is murdered in cold blood, the investigation leads two detectives into the heart of suburban America. With time running short and the suspect list growing longer by the minute, can they uncover the killer before more victims fall prey to the Slasher? The Housewife Slasher is ... The Housewife Slasher is written by Mike Lees and is directed by Christopher Leto. The acting is quite decent, a little uneven at times but it´s okay. The camerawork and editing is good, the pacing is nice. The flick shifts between the housewives, the kills and the policework. Actually the policework gets more than its fair share of screentime, I would liked to have seen more of the housewives and I ain´t saying that just because of the attractive cast. The bodycount is unexpectedly high. There are some gore, frankly I wish that would have been a little bit gorier. A couple of kills occur off screen but two of them are surprisingly pretty brutal (especially for the mainstream viewer) and it is those two scenes that provide most the gore in this. The gore fx is practical and looks decent. In the T & A department I can report some T & A, I actually found myself hoping for more of it as The Housewife Slasher features several attactive actresses that I would find myself label as MILF.

This review is based upon the Region All Blu-Ray release from Reaper Films.
Rating: 5 out of 7. I enjoyed this. This is actually better written and made than I expected, sure there are a few flaws but those can be attributed to budget limitations. It´s a pretty good thriller, not too gory and makes a nice flick to see in the company of your girlfriend or boyfriend. I like the fact that it is hard to figure out who the killer is, the identity is finally revealed by the filmmakers during one of the kills towards the end of the flick which is kinda nice.
