    Movies - Alternative Titles II

    This one is a list of 80s movies where I have given alternative titles to each. But basically apart from rewording them, they are still the same titles. Can you identify them?

    A couple of examples:
    1) Returning to things that haven't yet happened = "Back to the Future"
    2) To expire solidly = "Die Hard"

    This may be pretty tough so later I will add actors next to the titles of the movies that are remaining. Let's see how you do.

    1. Nasty vision where trees reside A Nightmare on Elm St
    2. Dangerous Ally (Horror) Deadly Friend
    3. The Dark Fissure (Sci Fi) The Black Hole
    4. The Meadows of Death The Killing Fields
    5. Crazed Law Enforcer Psycho Cop (Maniac Cop)
    6. Colossal conflict Clash of the Titans
    7. Washington Taxi Company DC Cab
    8. Lethal Magnetism Fatal Attraction
    10. Lecherous activities in the dirt (Western starring a transvestite) Lust in the Dust
    11. Eight Cat Person Octopussy
    12. Fatty’s Porky's
    13. Wise man’s Excavation (An Indiana Jones rip off starring a woman who went on to become big in the 90s) King Soloman's Mines
    14. Latin Dance & Money Tango & Cash
    15. He’s above suspicion An Innocent Man
    16. A Trio and their brat Three men & a Baby
    17. South American Country Brazil
    18. Switching spots Trading Places
    19. Returning for education Back to School
    20. Underaged Weapons Young Guns
    21. The Scarlet lady The Woman in Red
    22. Has no idea (A detective spoof) Without a Clue
    23. Bizarre Art (Famous 80s comedy) Weird Science
    24. The best place to witness a murder A View to a Kill
    25. Secondhand Vehicles Used Cars
    26. Cannot be spoken of (Obscure HP Lovecroft movie)The Unnamable
    27. A trio of friends The Three Amigos
    28. They’re still breathing They Live
    29. Doing the usual dealings Taking Care of Business
    30. Don’t put it logically (Involves a lot of music) Stop Making Sence

    I was hoping nobody would notice that.

    I removed it because I had a very strong suspicion it was released under a different name in the States so nobody would have figured it out. The clue was "Perilous Chase" and the movie was "Deadly Pursuit" starring Tom Beringer, Kirsty Alley, Clancy Brown and some other well known actor whose name escapes me.

    By the way, everyone is right with their answers so far!

    That will be the one Stacey. It was released down my way as Maniac Cop, but checking the Net, I see that it is the same movie.

    Roem is correct, but surfnut, that's not the one I'm looking for. The one I want is an 80s spoof.

    Taking care of business was 1990? You are right! My mistake.

    Those are both correct. I will add some more clues now.
