It's more sci-fi/thriller, but it's a good movie.

cool I'll have to check it out. I have to watch 976-Evil again.  I have recorded it off cable a long time ago. only watched the 1st half of it ...didnt care for the movie much though. I thought Monkey Shines was funny. I havent seen that in a loooooong time. Can't believe I forgot about The Hidden. I wanted to mention Silent Night Deadly Night but I wasnt sure if it came out in the late 70's or 80's. I luv the 1st one and the one about the witches (think it was pt.IV).
The rest of em  suck  8)

I agree with this.

70's and 80's (and early/mid 90's) horror movies were alot "scarier" than today. Nowadays it's more "lite horror" -- which I do like, but it's not as flat out scary IMHO. I think Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer ushered in that trend.

Cujo scared me when I saw it on TV about 10 years ago. Same with the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead.

The Lost Boys is my all-time favorite, but I was a horror-wimp. ;)

The Children of the Corn creeped me out, as did Cujo; but The Monster Squad was more my speed. ;D

I wasnt sure if Phantasm was from the late 70's or 80's. Thats one of my favs. I have American Gothic, Terror Train,, Videodrome on tape as well as Dead Alive, Funhouse on dvd.
I always liked the cover for Frightmare never got a chance to see it though. Havent heard many good reviews on it so I'm not really in a rush to view it but I definately wanna check it out just to say I seen it. Same with Cheerleader Camp. The rest I've seen can't believe I forgot about Bad Dreams  ;)

Oh, well its hard to mention good horror and not touch on some of the late 70's stuff.

Cheerleader Camp is definitely a cheesy horror film.

I do like that movie that spoofed the slasher films as well called Student Bodies.

Yes Jill was in alot of horror movies...loved Popcorn!

I've always thought the '80's was a good decade for horror films. Despite all the horror films already listed, here are two more, that I think are worth watching: "The Lady in White" and "Lair of the White Worm."

yes there were some cheesy ones, but there was a certain graininess to 80's horror that has been somewhat lost on more recent ones.

They weren't afraid to be gross and horrifying, like a lot of studios are now.

Does anyone rememeber the 50's remake of the blob?  That was cheesy but I like it.  I just bought Creep Show fo 5 at WalMart and Polergist.  I watched it with my daughter and she thought it wasn't scary.  It really wasn't now but when I first saw it, it creeped me out.  I was a big fan of the Nightmare on Elm Street secquals until they gat stupid.  Pet Cemetery was late 80's.  Does anyone remember Ghost Story? or the Changling?  :o

Written By: rubixgirl on 04/07/05 at 8:59 am

Yeah the Blob remake was cheesy but very 80's horror too. The minister creeped me out in that one.

The Changeling was a great scary movie. It really relied on the scare that story driven, not through gore. Which is hard to do.

Question for horror buffs...

There was a scary movie where it was a group of mutant type people all living in the same house. The caretaker was a woman who looked normal who all the mutants depended on like a mother figure. If memory serves, the scene I sort of remember is a guy who also seems normal (on the outside anyway) bringing his girlfriend there. And in order for her to survive she must pretend to want to nurture the other mutants b/c I believe she murders the caretaker.

Any ideas?

How about:

I "Spit On Your Grave" & "Pieces"

I "Spit On Your Grave" was a Deliverance style horror, and "Pieces" was about a guy that made the perfect girl out of 'pieces' of other girls he had killed.
