The Thing hands down. One of the best horror movies ever in my opinion
The Thing. Not an overly original chocie, but a favorite for me.
Night Of The Demons
My personal favorites :fire:
A lot of terrific horror films from the 80's, but I have to go with The Shining - simply a brillant film.
Im surprised ROTLD doesnt have more votes. I personally thought it was just as famous as ED and The Thing.
this is hard!!! some many good horror films came out of the 80s...but i must give it to The Shining, one of the only horror films that still gives me the creeps, and its one of my favorite horror films of all time.
other picks would've been:
Lots of my all-time favorites are on this list. But I'm going with Re-Animator, probably for the sheer audaciousness of it. The first time I saw it I remember thinking "I've never seen anything like that before." I still feel that way. Combs gives a landmark performance and the pace is unmatched. It starts out strong and keeps topping itself right to the final credits. I've never had more fun watching a movie.
I did vote for Evil Dead, and The Thing is a very close 2nd. I saw it in 1982 when it was originally at the theaters. Supposedly, Universal is rereleasing a few movies this year to the theaters, Blue Brothers, Animal House, and The Thing.
Glad to see someone else likes American Werewolf too. I didn't vote in the poll because there are too many good titles. All at the top:
Day of the Dead
All are wonderful films. "Say hello Aunt Alicia."
Other: Sleepaway Camp (1983)
I voted for Evil Dead but honestly I watch Friday Part 7 as much if not more.
Tough vote, the 80s was the best decade for the horror genre. I voted Evil Dead. I didn't want to vote Other again, or I would have went with Night Of The Demons (1988)
Went with Nightmare on Elm Street. This film scared the living shit out of me when I was a kid. From this list, it's had the most impact on me and the way I watch horror films today as an adult.
From that list: The Shining
Honorable Mentions: A Nightmare On Elm Street, Day Of The Dead, Evil Dead II, Poltergeist, The Evil Dead, The Thing,
Not on the list: Christine, Creepshow, Halloween III, Halloween 4, The Fog
Films I still want to see: Tenebre, The Beyond, and The Entity.
I had to go with Friday the 13th. This is the movie that got me into Horror.
Really at odds with this one, but chose The Thing.
A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) superior to most of the films.
Aliens (1986) can't explain why but I just love that flick.
Actually... I think I'd like to retract my vote (hypothetically) and go with Creepshow instead. An extraordinarily close race though.
