I'm looking for some books that are similar to teen slasher movies. Movies like Wrong Turn, Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Prom Night...

Any recommendations are appreciated!!

I would suggest Bryan Smith's death bringer- except it wasn't one serial killer type it was zombies.  But it read just like an 80's horror movie.  Good luck.

I recommend The Harrowing by Alexandra Sokoloff.  Although not of the slasher variety, it seems like it would translate well to a teen/college age horror movie. 

Summary:
 
Baird College’s Mendenhall echoes with the footsteps of students heading home for Thanksgiving break, and Robin Stone, who won’t be going home, swears she can feel the creepy, hundred-year-old residence hall breathe a sigh of relief for its long-awaited solitude. As a massive storm approaches, four other lonely students reveal themselves to Robin: Patrick, a handsome jock; Lisa, a manipulative tease; Cain, a brooding musician; and Martin, a scholarly eccentric. Each has forsaken a long weekend at home for their own secret reasons.

The five unlikely companions establish a tentative rapport, but they soon become aware of another presence disturbing the building’s ominous silence. Are they the victims of an elaborate prank, or is the energy evidence of something genuine—something intent on using them for its own terrifying ends? Together, they’ll face three long days and dark nights before the world returns to find out what’s become of five students nobody wants and no one will miss…
