I know lists are done to death, but since this is a bit of a slow period for the horror community I thought why not. And surprisingly I couldn't find anything like this in the search thread so I thought it would be fun. I'm sure some lists will include a lot of the same choices, but I'm also sure that some will include some movies that will encourage others to check them out. Also, I'm curious to see what movies will make the most lists. Damn this one was the hardest decade to put together. How can you choose only 10? Hell it would be tough choosing 10 slashers form the 80s, let alone 10 horror movies in general. I really hated having to leave off some of the titles that I did, but that is the fun and toughness of top 10 lists. There are always those that deserve to be up there and those that you really want up there. I decided to go with the latter, even if it meant a couple of repeat franchises due to all the awesome sequels to come out in the 80s. So, here goes my list, and I can't wait to see what everyone else has. Top 10 Horror Movies of the 80's 10. The Changeling (1980) 9. Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (1982) 8. City of the Living Dead (1980) 7. Return of the Living Dead (1985) 6. The Lost Boys (1987) 5. An American Werewolf in London (1981) 4. The Fog (1980) 3. Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives (1986) 2. The Thing (1982) and my favourite movie from the 80's is... 1. Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) I hate putting two movies from the same franchise on this list but what can I say, it is my favourite franchise and just about any movie from it could be on here and deservingly so. Well maybe not part 8, but all of the rest could easier have made it. I chose part 4 because it has the best the series has to offer; great characters, great kills, and it's actually dark and scary at parts. It was tough choosing between this one and part 6 as Lives is such a fun movie with I believe the most kills in the series, but the lack of gore and seriousness made me give the edge to part 4. Oh, and it has Corey Feldman which is also bonus points in my opinion.
