  1. […] I love my 80s horror and apparently others concur. Back in June 2010 My Goregirl’s Favourite Horror Films 1980-89 saw my stats triple! This was the predecessor to the aforementioned 70s horror list and was the motivation to take on another decade. The 80s was the decade I grew up in so it is pretty easy to be passionate. I actually enjoy looking back at this list and I am pleased it gets so many hits. Like the 70s list this is just a summary but you can click the year to see the original post. Check it out HERE. […]

  2. […] 4 weeks! I will post a link for the top ten lists in my sidebar like I have done for the 1970s and 1980s soon! In the meantime, here is an overview of some of the […]

  3. […] lists should be. At this point I have completed top ten lists for each year of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. The results of the aforementioned poll was heavily in favor of the 1960s but the […]

    The Fog! The Howling! Near Dark! They Live! Gojira vs Biorante! Great list. Incredible job picking out all of these amazing flicks!

    • I was a teenager in the eighties and look back at the horror films of the decade with a particular fondness. Back then I seen every horror film in the theater. Of course back then a lot more horror films actually made it to a theater. Cheers Vic 🙂

  6. Excellent list. Great to see so much love for Argento, and some real rare entries on the lists too. Agree with Possession, The Thing, Videodrome and Santa Sangre at #1 for their year’s – all brilliant films by master movie-makers. I might have put Day ahead of Return for ’85 though 😉

  7. […] June 2010 I compiled a list of my ten favourite horror films for each year of the 1980s. To be honest, 1984 was probably my least favourite year of the decade for horror movies. 1984 […]

    Goregirl, this is the first time I’ve ever seen a woman so passionate about such diverse films as POSSESSION (gotta love Adjani, Neill, and Heinz Bennet from The Tin Drum showing a grotesque, destructive bent on marriage and mental illness). To include Fulci, Tony Scott, and Stuart Gordon, etc…
    Please continue trying to show that Lamberto Bava, Ruggero Deodato (dig Giovanni L. Radice big time!) and your 80’s picks are not just for the boy’s club. RATS:IL NOTTE DEL TERRORE is also a fave of mine.
    Keep it up, I appreciate comradery in my defense of all kinds of horror cinema. Nice pick of Udo Kier.
    I’ll be visting your dungeon a lot more, since you know not to trust a man whose eyebrows meet (don’t you think Terence Stamp is a great Devil?).
    Ciao bella!
