The slasher film gets revived after an oversaturation period.
Freddy Krueger starts on his way to becoming a household name in horror.

Sometimes I miss films being this visually creative without resorting to CGI. The effects still look great today. Plus the whole story is about the power of imagination, a theme I'm always a fan of.

Michael Keaton at the top of his comedic game.
A cast that includes Peter Boyle, Danny DeVito, and Dom DeLuise.

And then there's this...

Runners-up


Top films listed in the order I like them, though repeat viewings could potentially rearrange said order.

Runners-up listed alphabetically.

Had you asked my 1984 self...
1. Ghostbusters
2. Gremlins
3. Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom
4. The NeverEnding Story
5. The Karate Kid
6. The Jungle Book (re-released to theatres)
7. Police Academy
8. The Last Starfighter
9. The Muppets Take Manhattan
10. Conan the Destroyer

**Since The Jungle Book was originally released long before I first saw it, it wasn't included in the main list**
