Slasher Revisionism?

Who was more important in the 80s slasher sub-genre: the psycho killers or the final girls?

Joe argues final girl, because she’s the glue that holds the story together and gives the audience someone to root for.

Eugene and Brian argue too much emphasis has been put on “the final girl,” thanks mostly to the genius of the “Scream” screenplay.

They argue the the bad guys are what made the 80s slasher films so popular.
