Despite not seeing the Jason, Scream, Nightmare on Elm Street movies, I've read about them, and learned the basic premise: unstoppable monster with vaguely supernatural powers comes back to kill unwary or terrified teens, especially sexually active ones. Death is the punishment for sex, they all seem to agree. One girl is left alive at the end.
Just in time for the movies, here is an utterly brilliant script for the earliest slasher story of them all, written by Shakespeare. I especially liked the 2-line introductions of all the hapless victims:
Exit Chorus; enter Moros & Hippolyta, Satyrus & Carnalia, Impudicus & Lascivia, Turpino & Bimbona.
Moros: Come, we must find the camp, and all prepare
For opening – then, frolic without care.
Hippolyta: Some passing chill brings goosebumps to my skin,
Some strange foreboding quivers up my spine...
Satyrus: From all such foolish fancies am I free;
I think of nought but coming revelry!
Carnalia: Aye, thinking on it warms my quickened heart;
In revelry I’ll play no modest part!
Impudicus: My thoughts turn to my fair Lascivia’s charms,
And what we'll find when in each other’s arms.
Lascivia: You are too froward, sir – think all you please:
You may find I am nothing but a tease.
Turpino: Here is much beer and wine – I shall drink deep
And pass the night in sotted swinish sleep.
Bimbona: So nothing shall we lack of what we need,
I have with me a casket of fine weed.
