An awesome year, sure They Live is more sci fi than horror, but like The Hidden I have always considered it, to be a sci fi horror film.

Hence case, it's inclusion on this list.

You may have chosen all the horror movies from that year but i think They Live it's a sci-fi movie. : )
Posted: 2 years ago at Jun 21 23:33
True, but for me there is some horror elements in it, enough to put it on this list.

That and it's a damn awesome film!
Posted: 2 years ago at Jun 22 11:18
yes! They Live it's a memorable movie with Rowdy Rowdy Piper with His special sunglasses
: ))
