Scholars have consistently applied psychoanalytic models to representations of gender in early teen slasher films such as "Black Christmas (1974)," "Halloween (1978)" and "Friday the 13th (1980)" in order to claim that these were formulaic, excessively violent exploitation films, fashioned to satisfy the misogynist fantasies of teenage boys and grind house patrons. However, by examining the commercial logic, strategies and objectives of the American and Canadian independents that produced the films and the companies that distributed them in the US, "Blood Money" demonstrates that filmmakers and marketers actually went to extraordinary lengths to make early teen slashers attractive to female youth, to minimize displays of violence, gore and suffering and to invite comparisons to a wide range of post-classical Hollywood's biggest hits - including "Love Story (1970)," "The Exorcist (1973)," "Saturday Night Fever (1977)," "Grease," and "Animal House (both 1978)." "Blood Money" is a remarkable piece of scholarship that highlights the many forces that helped establish the teen slasher as a key component of the North American film industry's repertoire of youth-market product.
