Lots of great movies,
Vote for your fave!

Lotsa good ones, but I chose that blasphemous sequel to the 1974 classic :p

BTW, I'm fairly certain DEMONS is '85. Perhaps you meant to put down the sequel???

04-24-2002, 07:32 PM
ACK! :(
my mistake, dammit! :mad:

04-24-2002, 07:43 PM
Damn, the 80's were awesome. If you were to do polls of the last 5 years you'd probably only be able to do "Worst of's". :(

I voted for Michael Mann's Manhunter. I love his movies and this is one of his best. Gritty and stylish, just like Miami Vice, and IMO a whole lot better than the other Lecter films. I am interested to see how Red Dragon is, because there is a lot of talent behind it.

My second choice would be the campy Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives.

The masterpiece that is The Hitcher is one of my top 3 favorite films of all time, so of course I voted for it. The Fly comes in second place, and Night of the Creeps comes in third.

04-24-2002, 11:36 PM
Aliens...this is the best out of all the sequals.

04-24-2002, 11:42 PM
Night of the Creeps all the way!!!!!!!!!! thats one of the best horror flicks around

Ain't that the truth, bro. Horror's in sad shape these days.
I voted for Henry, the MPAA's favorite movie of '86.:D

"The Hitcher" is great, but TCM 2 got my vote. Brilliant movie, excellent cast.

06-21-2002, 11:14 AM
I voted for Gothic, an obscure but interesting little film. Aliens was good, but a sequel.

Aliens for me. Far far better than its predecessor and those that followed it.

06-21-2002, 10:37 PM
April Fools Day. I don't really know why I'm going it the top slot, but it's getting my vote.

....not, IMHO, a superior movie to the original but a worthy successor.

06-29-2002, 09:30 PM
Went with Aliens. Really love the Fly and Friday the 13th part 6 also.

07-09-2002, 06:50 PM
Friday the 13th 6. I love the triple decapitation scene.

From Beyond - Barbara in leather rocks

All these movies kinda hard a sense of humor about themselves. Great year for cheese horror :D

07-16-2002, 02:49 PM
HENRY... always been a sucker for serial killers too. HENRY LEE LUCAS and OTIS TOOLE rocked the world

07-17-2002, 08:06 PM
Night Of The Creeps

07-18-2002, 03:52 AM
Henry. I love this disturbing flick.

07-18-2002, 03:22 PM
My choice is F13th 6, the only one with actual campers. Plus, it had the guy from Summer Camp Nightmare (the guy who was driving the Winnebago).
Aliens is a close 2nd
By the way, is it just me or was Death Spa also released in 1986?
If it was then that is in 3rd place

07-20-2002, 01:14 PM
I had no problem to vote here. "Dolls" beats all the others IMO.
I's a pity we can't buy this terrfic movie on DVD!
Other movies that I enjoyed were:

Aliens easily, probably my favourite movie from any year.

The Chaostar
08-15-2002, 01:02 PM
Voted for Gothic too. One of my favorite films of the 80s.

08-24-2002, 07:55 AM
Aliens for me...wow! Another terrific year.

I realize there are six of those films I've never seen. Time to have a little retro night, I've already pre-ordered April Fool's Day .

06-16-2008, 04:02 PM
My favorite is Friday the 13th Part VI.

I thought Deadly Friend was a little underrated, though. And the Little Shop of Horrors remake was very satisfying as well.

This was a really great year, wasn't it? When you think of great years in horror, '86 doesn't usually jump right to the front. But with movies like LSoH, The Fly, Henry: PoaSK, Aliens, House, Friday the 13th Part VI, etc, it's better than I might remember it.

06-16-2008, 05:11 PM
Heck with the horror films! The best movie of 86 is Highlander!!

06-16-2008, 05:43 PM
Aliens is not really a horror well not anymore than Army of Darkness is, but whatever.

I went with From Beyond.

07-11-2008, 06:48 PM
Across virtually every genre, 1986 was a great year for cinema. :) My favorite would be Aliens. The Hitcher, Night of the Creeps, Texas Chain Saw Massacre 2, and The Fly are all worthy contenders.

Mutilated Prey
07-11-2008, 07:07 PM
ooo, tough one. I went with Friday the 13th Part 6, not necessarilly because it was better, but because it was the return of Jason. Aliens, April Fools Day, Night of the Creeps, TCM 2 and From Beyond were great flicks as well.

07-11-2008, 07:53 PM
My birth year had a pretty good line-up. I have to vote from Cronenberg's The Fly. Amazing film.

07-11-2008, 09:01 PM
I've been a huge fan of Aliens for twenty years, but I went with The Fly. Actually, maybe I should've went with Aliens, but The Fly is just so goddamn good!

07-11-2008, 09:19 PM
1986 generally looks weak. Went with HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER - because it had some balls.

07-12-2008, 09:35 PM
Aliens. A few other good titles on there, but nothing really in the same league as Aliens.

07-13-2008, 03:51 PM
Even though I prefer the original, I just had to vote for ALIENS. Other greats from this year: Manhunter, Dolls, FRIDAY THE 13TH 6 and I used to really love House and POLTERGEIST 2.

07-13-2008, 08:30 PM
Ehh, I picked "Henry." I think '86 is where 80s horror cinema started sliding.

You left out "Maximum Overdrive" and "Trick or Treat." Metal-themed horror!
