Just watching Trick or Treat (1986) and going to watch The Blob (1988 remake) a bit later and I wondered what you enjoyed.

Going only from memories of what 'horror' films scared me or really entertained me when I was a kid I would pick these:-

1) Fight Night

2) Creep Show (The one with the crate monster at the airport)

3) The Blob

4) Dont be Afraid of the Dark

5) Trick or Treat.

Although I'll probably change this list as I remember other films.

Even though it wasn't really scary, I loved The Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2.  That Chop Top character was crazy.

I'm not much for horror flicks, and I'm not even sure this is one... but I liked Jacobs Ladder with Tim Robbins. Angel Heart would be right up there too with Mickey Roark, Lisa Bonet, and Robert DeNiro. Scary. :D

Is it cheating to post them even if you weren't alive in the 80's? :P I can't really be nostalgic about them but I enjoy and appreciate a lot.

Poltergeist
Evil Dead 1 and 2
Nightmare on Elm Street
An American Werewolf in London
The Thing
The Howling

Not cheating at all! Glad people still enjoy older films when special effects were actually 'special' and not just often lifeless CGI!!

Dunno how I left The Thing and the Evil Dead films from my list!!!

Also, I just remembered Hellraiser!

Yeah, I'll defend good make-up jobs and puppetry over CGI til the day I die. In my opinion the special effects in American Werewolf in London were some of the best of all time and stand up fantastically even today.

I'll high five you there! Was a great film and the first transformation was jaw dropping!

Also The Thing was outstanding! Everyone that has seen it will remember the 'head spider' thing!

And Labyrinth is one that I watch once a year, cant wait for my niece to be old enough to sit and watch it through, would love to see her react to the Goblin City!

My kids love that movie. We watch it all the time. The "The Goblin King, Goblin King, wherever you may be" part really bothered her. My husband used to do it to her baby brother and and she would flip! Poor baby.
I love explaining to her how they made the movie. ;)

Yep, the head spider thing scared the crap out of me when I was a kid.

Haha, I plan on doing the same with my niece and nephews. :tu:
