"It’s 1989 in Lamesa Texas, a place 50 miles outside of the town Stephen Graham Jones grew up in. Tolly Driver is just a normal 17 year old, “a good kid,” suddenly cursed to become a slasher—a powerhouse of a being his friend Amber knows all about, from watching those old VHS tapes with her older brother. Told in his own words, I Was a Teenager Slasher is a funny, blood-soaked, tragic, and heartfelt look at the slasher genre, only this time, from the other side of the machete." – Adam
