1. Watching the Fog during spooky season gives me the same warm, contented feeling as watching a holiday movie while snowed in. It's cozy, kinda low stakes...it really embodies the true vibe of Halloween to me

  2. YES! YES! YES! I seriously love that movie so much. The first time I saw it (roughly 10 years ago), I laughed until I cried during multiple scenes.

  3. Evil Dead 2 is quite rightly in a league of its own. It is a B movie, but quite possibly the best and most self aware B movie ever made.

  4. Chopping Mall, Re-Animator, return of the living dead, evil dead 2, dead alive, trick r treat are all fantastic.

  5. I absolutely love Trick 'r Treat. I mean, I've owned a poster signed by Michael Dougherty since 2009 and I've doodled Sam so many times he might as well be my signature. But it's a 2000s film, not 80s.

  6. Halloween 3: Season of the Witch is actually a great B-horror movie that probably should have been marketed as something else because people were expecting another Michael Myers movie when it came out, and instead got one of the weirdest b-horrors I've ever seen. Plus it has Tom Atkins hollywoodsexgod and is perfect for the Halloween season.

  7. I’m so glad that Halloween III is finally getting its due from more horror fans. Such a weird, fun, incredibly rewatchable movie. Can’t wait to watch it this year! Day of the Dead also doesn’t get enough love. You’ve got good taste in horror!

  8. That movie creeped me out really badly when I was a kid. I was legit scared to wear Halloween masks. Plus, I've always hated bugs, so that added to the fear. Even though it did scare me, I'd watch it every time it was on tv. The movie title always confused me though. As a standalone movie, it was awesome!

  9. The first time I saw it, I was thrown off on all of the 1940s and 50s references (including the name itself) until I did the math and realized that's on par with movies now referencing the 80s and 90s. What a gut punch.

  10. I watched Sleepaway Camp for the first time last Halloween after overlooking it my whole life. Somehow I made it decades without having the plot spoiled… and it hit me with full force LOL

  11. Not sure if this has been said but Dead Alive is a great one. It’s actually 92 but that’s pretty close. Also the Blob from 88 and the Stuff

  12. YES scrolled through looking for this one!!! Dead Alive is so bad that it’s incredible. The zombie baby scene in the park just slays me every time.

  13. LATE PHASES! Hardly anyone knows of that movie and it’s so good! It’s about a blind vet that moves into a retirement home and old people start getting offed by a monster.

  14. I am always so happy when someone who isn’t me mentions this movie. I watch it every year around Halloween. My best friend and I in college used to quote it all the time. “You want us to invade suburbia? Arby’s? Bowling alleys? Chicken MAC-nuggets?” That dance off is one of my all time favorite scenes in any movie. It’s so stupid, and it brings me pure joy.

  15. An episode of MST3K showed a movie called "Manos: The Hand of Fate" and that looks like a pretty awful movie - but not sure of its 80's camp or earlier.

  16. “House” was good but not really scary. And I’d vote for “Fright Night” I’d skip society and death spa but just personal opinion

  17. Other than agreeing whole heartedly with all the other people suggesting Dead Alive, The Video Dead is just AWFUL. Terrible horror movie perfection. It’s about a boarded up tv (not house, the actual tv is boarded up) that zombies come out of. Pretty sure it was direct to video.

  18. They live is always a go to for me. And I know its not from the 80s but i watch Idle hands every year multiple times around Halloween.

  19. I don’t know what Death Spa is but I need it in my life! Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 would be my recommendation. If only Troll 2 was put out one year before 1990!

  20. You have very good taste!! You can’t go wrong with Friday the 13th part 4. Sleepaway camp is also a must watch.

  21. The Blob remake is solid. I would include The Fly remake. Both are a little too good to be B but their subject matter puts them there for me.

  22. Wolfen. It absolutely terrified me as a 6yo child in the early 80s. As a college student, I exacerbated the worst hangover of my life.

  23. I just watched Possessed which came out on Showtime in 2000 but is made to look like a late 60s/early 70s film and it was totally goofy and weird.

  24. Troll, Yokai Monsters: Along with Ghosts, Sgt Kabukiman NYPD ( not a horror but features monsters and transformation)

  25. Texas Chainsaw Massacre, I’m pretty sure they span from 1970-1980. The Thing is awesome. Sleepaway Camp is one of my favorites too

  26. Pretty much everything I can think of off the top of my head is already been mentioned except for one... Night Killer! Which, ironically, takes place almost entirely during the day. 😆

  27. Strong recommendations: Witchcraft II and Velocipastor are craptastic!!! Especially Velocipastor. It is a must-see. Especially for the visual effects. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  28. Psycho 2, Exorcist 3 and Alice, Sweet Alice should be on there. And Candyman if you haven't already seen it (that one is particularly brutal though so veiw at your own risk).

  29. This list is pretty good already and the suggestions cover a good deal of it. I will tell you once you go down the "80's horror rabbit hole" you will be set for awhile. And you'll be hooked. It's an awesome time in horror history.

  30. Get Shudder! It has a ton of B List horror movies! But I gotta put some of my favorites out there Little Shop Of Horrors!! The Ghoulies! Troll! Puppet Master!! Rubber! And of course my ALL TIME FAVORITE…. Rocky Horror Picture Show
