    Top 3 80s Slasher Films

    Since Halloween is approaching, and little witches, wizards, and warlocks (devils, angels, and vampires, too! ) will be roaming the streets, I thought we could list our favorite scary movies....but we'll categorize them, because it's so hard to choose just one of each!

    This is the Slasher Films thread.

    3. April Fool's Day

    2. Friday The 13th

    1. A Nightmare On Elm Street


    OK, slay me with your ability to choose!

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?
    I don't know. I lost my psychic abilities when they stole my superhero powers.

    3 - Psycho 2 - Plenty of tension in this one.

    2 - Evil Dead 1 & 2 - How could you not love the Evil Dead Series.

    1 - A Nightmare on Elm Street - Say no more!

    # 3 To catch a killer - I think that's the title anyway. About the hunt for a serial killer.

    Uh...Recker...aren't the Evil Dead flicks more on the zombie side? They don't really fit into the slasher category...no slasher maniac, just demons/zombies from what I remember

    Anywho...

    3.) Halloween 2 - because I can't think of anything better and Michael Myers is a top classic slasher
    2.) Friday the 13th - classic
    1.) A Nightmare on Elm Street - there is no equal

    I guess Ash going on the rampage with his chainsaw stuck in my mind.

    The Hitcher
    Friday The 13th Pt. 1
    The Maniac (total sleaze-cheeze but great!)

    Top three slasher films of the 80s? That's hard since the best slasher films came in the 70s, not 80s. Still, here goes...

    1. Happy Birthday To Me
    2. A Blade In The Dark
    3. Tenebrae

    The first four Friday The 13ths were pretty good too. It all pretty much went downhill at the 5th in the series and by the 7th or 8th it was a complete farce! Dino De Laurentis also produced some pretty good slasher films that were directed by Brian DePalma (fresh off Carrie). There are two which I watch every so often: Dressed To Kill and Blow Out. Definitely if one wants to see the best the 80s had to offer when it came to slasher films one must look to anything directed before 1985 - much like anything from that decade, once 1985 came everything in that decade started to suck.

    Oooh! This one is good! His 70s slasher films are better, but this one is mentioned a lot by his fans. Possibly his best from that decade (maybe surpassed by Profondo Rosso). Hehe. I've watched Phenomena more times, though - a film which is cheesier than a bagel with Lox, but stars a young Jennifer Connelly

    Re: Top 3 80s Slasher Films

    Love 80s slashers, so this is tough,

    1. The Mutilator 1985

    2. Friday the 13th The Final Chapter 1984 [best of the series, though part 5 is really cool too, it was a total slaughterfest and the underrated new wave act Pseudo Echo has a song during one scene]

    3. Unhinged 1982.... totally wicked synthesizer music in this one.

    honorable mentions:

    Happy Birthday to Me, My Bloody Valentine, Maniac, Sleepaway Camp, Silent Night Deadly Night, The Prowler and a total guilty-pleasure, the once-seen-never-forgotten, Don't Go in the Woods.
