Another great great year for horror flicks. My vote: VIDEODROME
Wow, what a great year! A lot of my favorites are on this one. It is so tough picking between Halloween 3, Friday 3, Creepshow, Videodrome, The Evil Dead and The Thing. Overall though, I've got to give nods to The Thing, a great film on all levels, and one that is just as effective today as it was 20(!) years ago.
The Beast Within is also a pretty entertaining film too. The transformation scene is like a good combination between AWIL and a bad case of acne.
Those were the days...
I can't imagine having a quality set of horror releases like that in one year thesedays.
It's a real difficult call for me, deciding between Evil Dead, The Thing and Tenebre. I'll go for The Thing, by the slimmest of margins. Nope, I've changed my mind....Evil Dead. Not an easy choice....
1. FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3-D
3. AMITYVILLE 2: THE POSSESSION
Whew, some Definite classics here! VIDEODROME, THE THING, and BASKET CASE have honorable mention, and if it wasn't for the lame Stephen King segment of CREEPSHOW I'd have went w/ that one.....so, my vote goes to Dario Argento's arm-choppin' Murder mystery TENEBRE.
Tenebre gets my vote, as it is one of Argento's best. However, Evil Dead and Videodrome are very close.
Ooh, some really good ones here. But no doubt about it, it's 'The Evil Dead' for me. It was one of the first tapes we rented and it truly scared the living shit out of me!
It's just a shame I couldn't pick Videodrome, Basketcase & Tenebre as well.
I have to go with Creepshow. The list is really hard to choose from, but Creepshow was one of my favorites growing up.
Evil Dead is the bomb, but my vote went to Creepshow, mainly because I had bought & read the comic (probably a million times) & simply could NOT wait to see this flick! The comic theme really made this movie one of my favs for a LONG time!
Gotta go with the Evil Dead. Lots of great movies to pick from
'82, what a fine year it was. Well, I gotta go with "The Thing". When I first saw that movie - and this was way back in the bad old days of pan & scan - I thought it was the best movie I'd ever seen. It isn't anymore, but it's still a damn fine movie and clearly my fave from this particular year.
Creepshow!!! I love Adrienne Barbeau, she has great tits.
Fuck this. Wayyy to many good movies to choose from. I'll just pick one to go with the flow........Evil Dead. But I wanted to pick about 5.
Damn...really tough choices. HALLOWEEN 3: SEASON OF THE WITCH was awesome so I guess I will go with that. Lots of people hated it for the same whiney bullshit reason "No Micheal Myers". Fuck them, great movie!!
TENEBRAE!!! Argento still rules
Evil Dead (with Tenebrae right behind)
Evil Dead for me.
It's kind of odd all those great horror movies came out in one year. Meanwhile, we have The Fog, The Ring 2 and House of Wax. :cry:
I think if I had seen Evil Dead earlier in my horror career, it would've surpassed F-3 but I only finally saw it less than a year ago and I've been watching F-3 since I was a kid. So it gets the nostalgia vote as well.
Tough choice between Evil Dead and The Thing but ultimately I went with the latter. Both movies are great, gory fun but I think John Carpenter really exploited all the primal human fears to their full potential in The Thing.
I went with Cat People. So many good films for sure, but I figured no-one else would bother to give it the kudos it so justly deserves, so that honor falls to me.
