This is not a traditional shared universe. Rights issues prevent these from crossing over beyond references, but there's a loosely defined reality in which the main Slasher icons co-exist. There are character crossovers, like Stretch from Texas 2 in Hatchet III, and references to the other killers in other films, such as The Mask of Leslie Vernon treating the Halloween, Friday and Nightmare series to be canonical to it's continuity. I obviously won't include everything, only what is somewhat strongly connected, so a random Easter Egg like the Necronomicon in Pumpkinhead or The Walking Dead ain't gonna cut it, unless there's intent behind the scenes.

I would argue that each of these should be placed in their own detailed timelines should such a thing occur, and then have a seperate combined timeline.

Crossovers
The Evil Dead was shown as an in-universe movie in A Nightmare on Elm Street. I'm assuming this is an unrelated movie in-universe that just happens to look exactly like The Evil Dead for continuity reasons.

Rick Cologne from Friday the 13th: Part VI: Jason Lives appears in Shocker under his mother's maiden name Pastori, as revealed in Friday the 13th: The Game.

Child's Play #1 features an out-of-continuity page with Chucky standing triumphantly amidst various slasher killer masks and weapons. Jason, Leatherface, Michael and Freddy are all represented, as well as a facehugger from the Alien series.

Jason vs Leatherface is a crossover between Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It is awful continuity-wize because it tries to be a prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre but a sequel to Friday the 13th: Part VI: Jason Lives, which can't work in both continuities, but I guess you can assume the Illuminati gave Leatherface a new family with the same name and identity as some of his dead family members, and Jason somehow ended up back at the bottom of Camp Crystal Lake offscreen. However, I think it's clearly just made for fun and probably not intended to be canon.

Bride of Chucky starts with a scene in an evidence locker, showing various other collected evidence from other slasher killers. Jason's mask, Freddy's glove, Leatherface's chainsaw and Michael's mask appears. Michael's mask helps prove that Halloween 4-6 is the canonical version of events for this universe, since it was left on the ground in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers.

Jason Goes to Hell featured the Necronomicon from the Evil Dead series. The director came up with the idea while talking with Sam Raimi. "She [Pamela Voorhees] makes a deal with the devil by reading from the Necronomicon to bring back her son. This is why Jason isn’t Jason. He’s Jason plus The Evil Dead, and now I can believe that he can go from a little boy that lives in a lake, to a full grown man in a couple of months, to Zombie Jason, to never being able to kill this guy. That, to me, is way more interesting as a mashup, and Raimi loved it! It’s not like I could tell New Line my plan to include The Evil Dead, because they don’t own The Evil Dead. So it had to be an Easter egg, and I did focus on it…there’s a whole scene that includes the book, and I hoped people would get it and could figure out that’s what I’m up to. So yes, in my opinion, Jason Voorhees is a Deadite. He’s one of The Evil Dead. It absolutely is canon.” Jason is also killed by the Voorhees (Kandarian) dagger. Canonically, this would be a separate copy of the Necronomicon, like the one seen in Evil Dead (2013).

Freddy's glove grabs Jason's mask at the end of Jason Goes to Hell, teasing the future Freddy vs Jason film. Freddy vs Jason is a crossover between Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The comic book A Nightmare on Elm Street: Special features a newspaper with the headlines "Leatherface Returns".

Parker O'Neil from Frozen appears in Hatchet 2 talking to news cameras about her lawsuit and settlement against the ski mountain from the film. Jason Voorhees and Leslie Vernon are referenced in the film as other existing killers.

According to Caroline Williams, her character in Hatchet III, Amanda Fowler, is a continuation of her other character, Vanita 'Stretch' Brock, from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Part 2. This proves that this universe follows the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre timeline.

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon is set in this universe, referencing the characters and showing the towns from the Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween series. Chucky is also referenced. Michael Myers was involved with at least 4 different incidents, further solidifying that this follows the Halloween 4-6 timeline. Eugene in the film was intended to be Billy from Black Christmas. David J. Stieve stated “I can confirm that Eugene has always been Billy in my mind. Scott (Wilson) would be the right age for him, and it always fit for me that Eugene would have that “old school” nostalgia and slight professional jealousy that even though he was a pioneer in the business of fear, he never achieved the fame or notoriety of his successors (Michael, Jason, etc).” This connects Black Christmas into the universe.

The comic book Freddy vs Jason vs Ash is a crossover between the Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Evil Dead franchises, and a sequel to Freddy vs Jason based on the original script that pits them against Ash Williams from the Evil Dead franchise. It definitely takes place on Earth-818793, part of the Marvel Multiverse and designation of the Army of Darkness comics along with the rest of the Dynamite Comics Universe. It is unknown whether it is part of the primary timeline of the Slasherverse as well, since the creatives stated that it was a continuation of the original continuities, but it does contradict all Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street comics set after Freddy vs Jason. There is a small reference to the Army of Darkness comic books and it's implied that the Evil Dead Trilogy took place in the present day.

In Friday the 13th: The Game, the fifth Tommy tape mentions that Tommy got kicked out of four programs. One in Westin Hills (A Nightmare on Elm Street), another in Smith's Grove (Halloween), Glen Echo (Behind the Mask) and New Orleans (Hatchet), with Tommy claiming to hear a man crying for his father in the nearby swamp every night while he was in New Orleans Psychiatric, a reference to Victor Crowley.

Possible Inclusions
Sharknado Universe
Vanita 'Stretch' Brock appears in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. Because of her death in Hatchet III, and the apocalyptic ending, it can assumed that this is an alternate version of Stretch, and the Slasherverse is created at the end of The Last Sharknado: It's About Time. Z-Nation is set in the Sharknadoverse, and is about the zombie apocalypse. If this were to fit within the Slasherverse, I assume Z-Nation is set in the new timeline and the near future and leads into the apocalyptic ending seen in Ash vs Evil Dead and perhaps the Army of Darkness: Director's Cut. Due to the parody nature of the Sharknadoverse and how convoluted it is, I'm not including it, but it can be considered an alternate timeline branching from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Part 2.

Creepshow
The crate from Creepshow appears in Jason Goes to Hell. Because of how it is a very small appearance and there's not much to really distinguish it as anything more than an easter egg, unlike the Necronomicon and Kandarian dagger, it hasn't been included.

Pumpkinhead
The pages with which Pumpkinhead is summoned with are seemingly from the Necronomicon, which had an appearance in Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings. Because it is a two second easter egg, I feel it isn't notable enough to distinguish it as anything more than an easter egg.

This is very impressive. But I feel like there is a TON more stuff that needs to be added. Like the Hellraiser, Puppet Master, Leprechaun, and Amityville series.

Are you going by this?:

I'd need to see what connects each series first of course. I've just included what I feel to be most certainly connected franchises. Lots of these are validated by each other, like Nightmare/Friday > Hatchet > Behind the Mask > Halloween and Chucky, with Chucky connecting back to the others.

I do want to add more to the possible Inclusions list though.

Oh, I didn't include the crossovers set on Earth-818793 (Dynamite Comics Universe). That universe seems to be a version of the Slasherverse where most of the films happened, but with the timeline shifted in some places. I guess it's similar to what Earth-5556 is often seen as to Doctor Who.

So Hack/Slash vs Chucky, Hack/Slash vs Hatchet, Hack/Slash and Ash, Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, etc. all take place in a universe where Evil Dead is set in the present day, Stephanie Kimble (baby from Jason Goes to Hell) was born much earlier (she was a teenager having sex in FvJvA 2 but in the film timeline she'd have been 9 years old by the time the comic occurs), and the other Friday/Nightmare comics never happened.

Would you consider the Dead By Daylight game canon?
Hm... I'd say it's canon to the Slasher Multiverse at least. I imagine lots of characters were brought into the DBD Realm though the multiverse. I think a lot of the characters have different histories in that game that can be explained as divergent timelines.

I'm not going by that, no. I do like lots of the ideas though.

I know I said that I'm not counting Pumpkinhead... but I learned the context of the scene isn't background decoration and implies that the page that summons Pumpkinhead is from the Necronomicon.

Also, it appears in a tie-in comic.

Behind the Witch, you can see the eyes and nose of the book.

This seems to depict a page from the Necronomicon.

So, should I include it? It still seems like a small connection compared to the other franchises, and isn't really validated by anything else.

The only way FvJvA would work would be to assume that the same events occur in the cinematic universe, that Tommy is 14-15 in Part V and Part VI, and that Stephanie is 14-15 in the comic... where she's engaging with a 20 year old... jeez. If you can accept Tommy is one year younger in Part V somehow, it is slightly less strange at 16 but that's still pretty bad. Oh, and the other Friday/Nightmare comics couldn't be canon to it. All Evil Dead comic references are just shared events between Earth-818793 and the Slasherverse, or just one of those non-canon dates. The only reason why that would even be considered is because the people who worked on the book considered themselves as the sole continuation of the original timeline... even if that doesn't entirely make sense.

It doesn't make sense for me to do that I think, but yeah. I suppose you could throw in a bunch of crossovers from Earth-818793 at that point though. Canon becomes pretty confusing if you start doing that.

All Evil Dead comic references are just shared events between Earth-818793 and the Slasherverse, or just one of those non-canon dates. The only reason why that would even be considered is because the people who worked on the book considered themselves as the sole continuation of the original timeline... even if that doesn't entirely make sense.

It doesn't make sense for me to do that I think, but yeah. I suppose you could throw in a bunch of crossovers from Earth-818793 at that point though. Canon becomes pretty confusing if you start doing that.
Edit: Scratch that. If you ignore Jason being underwater in the prologue of Part VII, you can make it work. Might do an alternate viewing order for Earth-818793, or at least Army of Darkness and Slash/Hack comics. Place the Evil Dead trilogy in 2005, place Friday the 13th 7-9 in 1991-1992, remove all the Friday and Nightmare comics, remove Ash vs Evil Dead, now you have the Earth-818793 timeline.

Should probably do viewing orders for the other worlds too, like H20, Halloween 2018, Texas 3D, etc.

Possible Inclusions
Sharknado/Lavalantula/Z-Nation
Vanita 'Stretch' Brock appears in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens. Because of her death in Hatchet III, and the apocalyptic ending, it can assumed that this is an alternate version of Stretch, and the Slasherverse is created at the end of The Last Sharknado: It's About Time. Z-Nation is set in the Sharknadoverse, and is about the zombie apocalypse. If this were to fit within the Slasherverse, I assume Z-Nation is set in the new timeline and the near future and leads into the apocalyptic ending seen in Ash vs Evil Dead and perhaps the Army of Darkness: Director's Cut. Due to the parody nature of the Sharknadoverse and how convoluted it is, I'm not including it, but it can be considered an alternate timeline branching from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Part 2.
What about the Netflix series Black Summer? It’s written as the prequel to Z-Nation.

There's a Darkman/Army of Darkness crossover comic that acts as a sequel to Darkman III, and also isn't set in the huge Earth-818793 Dynamite Comics continuity. Assuming it doesn't contradict Ash vs Evil Dead that much, Darkman, Darkman II: The Return of Durant, Darkman III: Die, Darkman, Die, Darkman (1993 comic) and Darkman vs Army of Darkness could easily fit into the main continuity that's been built here.

Yep, that brings us to a total of 49 connected films across 12 different franchises in a loosely connected universe, and most of them are pretty much affirmed canon because of the Friday the 13th game connecting to Hatchet connecting to Behind the Mask connecting to, well, all of them.

It really just depends on how strict you are though.

Of all the timelines i'll think to see here this is one that i'll never thought someone would make

I've been following the Slasherverse for years, this will help my investigation for more connections (since it ties with AVP that ties to Angel that also brings the Westphall Hypotesis... better to not dig on that)

I think the Chucky comic with a facehugger is on an out-of-continuity page, to be fair. It does support the connections I guess. A Weyland organisation is mentioned in Jason vs Leatherface, but that comic is pretty messy. It wants to be a sequel to Jason Lives but a prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I think you can toss it in with the Texas 3D canon prior to the original film, since we have no idea about the Jason Voorhees of that reality.

As for Angel, Weyland-Yutani existed in modern day in the Buffyverse whereas it wasn't founded until 2099 in the Alien Universe through the merger of the Weyland and Yutani corporations. Though, we know that the Predators exist in that universe though a cameo in one of the comic books, along with, erm, Hellboy apparently.

There's also a standalone Army of Darkness/Bubba Ho-Tep comic book that acts as a sequel to Bubba Ho-Tep, a movie where Elvis Presley, played by Bruce Campbell, faked his death. Ash states that he was thinking about his own mortality because he's getting close to the age Elvis was when he died. Elvis Presley died at 42 years old. Ash should be 45 years old by this point (based on a drivers license prop) assuming Bubba Ho-Tep is set when it released (2002). He should have already passed that age in reality, but eh.

Oh, and Elvis seemingly died at the end of Bubba Ho-Tep, but I guess it's an easy retcon to make. Say he just passed out from his injuries but barely survived, then it's fine. I'm sure that's what the intention is as far as the comic goes.

Mind you, these comics are certainly in continuity with the Darkman and Bubba Ho-Tep film series. Because of how many Evil Dead comics there are that aren't part of the film canon, it's hard to say whether they're separate or connected with the films. One thing that does help tie it in with the Evil Dead film/show continuity is Ash's age, since in most Evil Dead comic timelines they retcon the original films to take place in modern day. In these, we see Ash after his trilogy in approximately 1994 and 2002.

Basically, up to you whether these are alternate versions of Ash from the Darkman and Bubba Ho-Tep universes.

Interesting to note, most of these characters were turned into films in-universe. In Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, Army of Darkness is playing in theatres. In Ash vs Evil Dead, Friday the 13th: Part III is playing in theatres. In A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Evil Dead is playing (although it has to be unrelated in-universe because of the timeline). In Adam Green's Hatchet comic, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are in-universe films despite the Hatchet films treating Jason Voorhees and Leslie Vernon as real killers.

Some filmmakers must have made films about the real killers I suppose. Just like we make movies about real life events.

So, Halloween III: Season of the Witch could be canon if there was anything to actually link it in the first place.

I think it's of note that Halloween #1, Halloween II: The Blackest Eyes and Halloween III: The Devil's Eyes attempt to merge the 4-6 and H20 timelines. Halloween III: The Devil's Eyes is set 1 year after a version of H20 (even though it says it's set in 2001?) and Laurie went mad after killing Myers and became the next Shape. Of course, if you were to merge these, she went mad because she actually killed an innocent man, not the real Myers. The only issue is she kinda lost her eye and it's back to normal in Resurrection. You could explain these discrepancies of course, but they're still officially separate timelines and the comic is very much a continuation of the 4-6 timeline really. I just thought that was interesting.
