    Not a great year methinks, except for a few like the underrated I, Madman or Alejandro Jodorowsky's Santa Sangre which got my vote.

    SOCIETY all the way! I absolutely love this horror/dark comedy classic, and it is Brian Yuzna's BEST film!

    Not horror's greatest year, but I voted for "Warlock". Wish the DVD was letterboxed.

    Jeez, good horror really took a dive in the late 80s, didn't it?

    Santa Sangre is an easy choice for me. Probably one of the last great horror movies that I saw in the cinema.

    The scenes with Zelda are some of the creepiest I have seen. Gage is pretty freaky towards the end as well. Pet Cemetary gets my vote. This was a pretty weak year compared to the others.

    Little Gage's tragic death in PET SEMATARY is very shocking, always kinda hard for me to watch.

    I voted for The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover...

    ....I caught it on the big screen back in '89 and loved it to bits. Delicious to look at - recommended.

    There are some other corkers in that list - Society and Halloween 5 I caught at one of the Black Sunday festivals in the UK...great memories.

    Santa Sangre's excellent. I have the UK VHS and soundtrack but would love to see it released on DVD.
     
  14. I was living in NYC this year, and I wanted a Fright Night 2 so bad I could spit! Needless to say, it never got a theatrical release in NY (maybe some independant theatres got it, but I never saw it).

    It was just THEE highly anticipated movie for me! I wasn't let down either!

    Honorable mention to Nightmare 5. Freddy was just a part of my life at this point!

    Yep, another great underrated gem that's screaming for a DVD release.

    Had to go with Pet Sematary. Many frightening scenes throughout the movie. I still love the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street entries though.
