Slasher Fiction Genre – What’s the best definition for slasher genre? Books in the slasher fiction genre are made up of stories that feature male serial killers, or other psychopaths, as an antagonist. They methodically kill a number of vulnerable, often female, protagonist victims in succession. Suspense is built by the victims being oblivious to the killer until it’s too late. The “slasher” kills his victims by sneaking up on them and stabbing or slicing them with a sharp object, such as a large knife.
