My top 25 favorite horror movies of the 80's... a far superior decade for all things horror than the hum-drum 90's!

You're just trying to encourage me to make my horror lists, aren't you? Heh. I predict that The Vanishing will rearrange your list...I know it'll be high on mine. Several of these are sitting in my queues, so glad to have more reinforcement to watch them soon.
Posted: 4 years, 12 months ago at May 9 21:04
Ha, well you mentioned horror lists in passing the other day, and it reminded me that I still had this one sitting around on 'private' and unfinished. So... what was I to do but finally come back to it and polish it up a bit?

But yeah, seriously dude knock those horror lists out!! :)

Cool, I'll try and work The Vanishing in one day soon I hope. Cheers!
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at May 12 11:21
Great list! Cool that you put Tetsuo: The Iron Man really high up, because it's a really underrated and awesome film!
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at May 12 11:32
Thanks!! Yeah, that movie blew my mind when I first saw it. And there's just so many images that have stuck with me. Have you seen any of the sequels? I'd like to track them down, but I don't want to go too far out of my way (or spend too much money) if they're not worth it. Cheers!
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at May 17 20:29
Awesome list with nice variety! Seen em all except Night of the Hunted. Will change that soon.
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at May 17 22:19
The Hitcher you'll love. Near Dark isnt bad as well
Posted: 4 years, 11 months ago at May 18 9:36
@ JayTrotter-- Thanks man! Seen 'em all?! Wow, that's awesome. Well done sir!

@ jay-jay-- Thanks for the input. I'll try and get too them sometime not too long from now!

Cool list! I've haven't seen Pin yet, but I'm definitely watching it in the near future. :)
Posted: 4 years ago at Apr 11 14:44
Great list! You should definitely watch Tenebrae is you like Argento. It's one of his best.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Sep 23 19:51
A lot of my favourites on this list. Near Dark, Dressed to Kill and Tenebre are really good films. Possession is supposedly a masterpiece.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Sep 24 7:46
Ah, so it's been a long time since I've updated this list, as I've already seen four titles that were in my Want to Watch section, including Near Dark and Dressed to Kill. Wasn't a huge fan of either, but still hold out hope for Tenebre and I'm glad you mentioned it so that I could finally update this list.
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Sep 24 15:35
Drafthouse screened Possession for a few days, all while we were in Oregon. Sigh. One of these days I'll finally see it.

I'm sure we'll both have to update our horror lists after next month. ;)

Did you get round to watching The Vanishing or The Fog yet?
