10 Best Meta Slasher Movies, Ranked According to IMDb
"If there is one thing the horror genre is, it is self-aware. Horror is one of the most cliched genres of all time, and the filmmakers are very aware of this. Fans love seeing these tropes, but they also love it when films acknowledge these tropes at the same time. Some of the most successful horror films are satires of the formula fans have come to love, while still being scary in the process. Many point to Wes Craven for starting this trend, but there are plenty of filmmakers and films in this sub-genre of meta-horror, some before Wes and some inspired by him."
