I largely agree with Darryl when it comes to slasher movies. I think the subgenre has spawned some great films, such as Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street, but most just blur together due to the repetitive formula. Like Des, I do have a soft spot for the Friday The 13th franchise, as it was my introduction to R-rated horror. Even then, I don't think the series has an actual great film, though The Final Chapter and Jason X are entertaining gems. I think the better films released in recent years have been the meta ones, such as Wes Craven's New Nightmare and Behind The Mask. Having seen Frozen, I agree that I would rather see Adam Green make more films in that vein than another slasher entry.
