The ’80s are back in again and to celebrate, we look at some of the best ’80s horror movies that the decade had to offer.

It’s summer and you know what that means! It means it’s too hot to do anything, but literally lay down and feel so miserably hot. With the summertime laziness comes the need for some good horror movies and some of the best around are from one of the best decades in the past: the good ol’ ’80s.

Since Stranger Things began, the love of the ’80s has had a resurgence, big time too. Some of the biggest franchise were birthed from the ’80s slasher beginnings along with some amazing horror movies featuring the most memorable monsters of all time. So why am I crazy for the ’80s and ’80s horror movies and spilling my guts about it here?

Because we have here a comprehensive list of some of the best ’80s horror movies that were ever made. Granted, this was a SUPER difficult list to make. There are so many horror movies that I wanted to include in this list, but there just wasn’t enough room to fit them all.

Regardless, I think this ’80s horror movies list is pretty amazing and I think it’s about time you all check it out. Hurry, before we all melt in the heat!
