average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Halloween (25th Anniversary Edition) (1978)
  This started it all for Slasher flicks. The most important movie in the genre and the BEST in my honest opinion. Unfortunatly for Haloween unlike the Friday the 13th series their sequels were horrible and down right boring.
Friday the 13th (Deluxe Edition) (1980)
Not Rated
  Not as stylish as Hallween this film added a whodunnit(suspense) with more innovative staged deaths and shocks. Halloween was the best slasher film IMHO but Friday the 13th set the formula for so many imitatiors to follow throughout the 80's.
Friday the 13th, Part 2 (Deluxe Edition) (1981)
  Very few of Series horror films improved from their origins,most got worse. This movie though set the direction and unlike other horror villians it almost made Jason become the tourtured frankenstein creature. Amy steel also had good acting moments.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
  When this came out,The slasher pic was dying out. NOES was different by puting it in a dream world. We all dream. The film had gorier & surreal settings.Freddie attacked his victims both physically AND mentally, unlike Jason/Michael before him.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985)
  Like Halloween, This series sequels Got Worse and Worse. This movie holds up better than the others. It deviates from the other films as it adds posession to the mix as Freddie tries to TURN the Jesse character into himself in the REAL WORLD.A Nice twist.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Not Rated
  There were many "dead" movies in 80's and of course this early classic is what they all emulated. The trapped in the house. The boarding up of all doors windows and trapped feelings. It became a blueprint of many "dead" films to follow.MUST SEE.
The Evil Dead (1983)
Not Rated
  The EVIL DEAD was a very SCARY FILM. It was more of a "demon movie" then a typical Dead film. I also believe it played more like the Italian horror films than the Campiness of other slasher/dead film that followed. The pencil scene still freeks me out.
Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn (1987)
Not Rated
  People either LOVE or HATE this film. It plays as a replica of the first film but shifts gears midway through. It goes from horror film to outright slapstick comedy. It mixes comedy/horror well. and a great rent after seeing the original.
Return of the Living Dead (1985)
  Comedy/Horror:Return of the Living Dead is the greatest of them all. It's a very sly comedy. It has some genuine scares in it which adds to the humor. The excellent movie soundtract is also a plus.The offbeat characters,storyline,sterotypical dialog. A+
