Allhallowsday just slandered Angel Heart?

That's one of my favorite films from the 80s.

As revenge, I nominate

The Lost Boys
Highly overrated. It didn't even have any hot vampire chicks in it. Total sausage party there.

You know I'm sure I'm going to think of five worst horror films than this one from the eighties, five seconds after posting this.

The Fly II.

These were all made in South Africa.  TongueOut

 The Demon / Midnight Caller (1980, Dir: Percival Rubens) Probably the worst horror / slasher film ever with murky photography and a totally unresolved ending.

 The Stay-Awake (1987, Dir: John Bernard) Teens on a sleep-over or pajama party are stalked and slashed by something faintly resembling a blow up beach toy.

 Return Of The Family Man (1988, Dir: John Murlowski) An SA remake of the film The Stepfather, not even worth your time.

 City Of Blood (1986, Dir: Darrell Roodt) Odd horror film concerning a sucidal pathologist who is stalked by a gang of masked killers. Very strange film indeed and with a very loaded political message.

 The Curse 111 / Panga (1989, Dir Sean Barton) Another odd film focusing on ritual murder in SA, bears no relation to the other films in the Curse series.

 POLTERGIEST II:the OTHERSIDE (1986) Whatta lameass piece of tripe! A kid gets attacked by his own tooth braces...? And the flying scene is about as bad as in the old SUPERMAN TV show...whatta godawful mess!!! Yhough the creepy old guy was cool...not cool enuff to save this mess.

Oh, and I agree with the FLY II...that was one of thee VERY worst! Good call! Thumbup

 BounceGiggle I forgot about these SA horrors: how could I?

Headhunter / Bloodshot (1988, Dir: Francis Schaeffer)
The Howling IV (1988, Dir: John Hough)
Buried Alive / Ravenscroft (1988, Dir: Gerard Kikoine)
HellGate (1989, Dir: William A. Levey)
Time of The Beast / Mutator (1989, Dir: John R. Bowey)

No idea where these would land now that the numbering thing's been all effed up, but here are a few that have yet to be mentioned but have scarred my soul:

Master of Evil/The Demon Lover
Rock N' Roll Nightmare
Trick or Treat
Killer Workout

I was so ready to splatter Troll II up here too, but it misses this list by one stinking year...

I enjoyed ANGEL HEART quite a bit too. Truly creepy New Orleans atmosphere in that one.  As to movies that belong here, the entire list could probably be made up of Road Warrior rip-offs.

Heh, perhaps I should have specified one entry per post or something...oh well.  I'll just guess at...

#25 Terror Train (1980)
Frat prank goes wrong ...time passes...party on a train at New Years...silly looking killer mask.  Basically, one of a million holiday killer rip offs.  Poor Jamie.

The Dungeonmaster might count here as a bad horror film, I'm not sure.

The Howling II is certainly one.

36. Hell of the Living Dead (1980) - Bruno Mattei's inept zombie "masterpiece" involving a group of Interpol agents stuck in a zombie infested section of New Guinea. The film boasts some of the dumbest characters ever (SHOOT THE ZOMBIES IN THE DAMNED HEADS ALREADY!), music by Goblin (borrowed from Romero's "Dawn of the Dead?"), and ah hell, its just an awful movie!



This one actually surprised me when I finally got to see it.  For years, I've heard how terrible it is, but it's really not half as bad as it's made out to be.



32. My Bloody Valentine

I know alot of people who love this movie; I've even heard some people say it's the best slasher film of all time. For me it was the most boring and idiotic film in all of slasher history


SaintMort, you could have stabbed me in the crotch and not caused as much pain as your post.   Smile  My Bloody Valentine is a classic!  Not only is the killer in one of the best slasher outfits of all time, the film is also fun as hell.  The ascot that T.J. wears in last third of the film is reason enough to watch it!

Master of Evil/The Demon Lover





Also known as DEVIL MASTER,directed by Donald Farmer! I kinda like it,in a bad movie way,but your off on the year...it was made in 1977. Ted Nugent was originally slated to star as the devil worshiping long hair nut...but backed out! Farmer is from my home state of Michigan,where this was filmed. If your lucky enuff to have a copy,I'd keep it...it's almost impossible to find anymore! I bought a copy under the DEVIL MASTER title,at a flea market,in on of those giant clamboxes with the geniric cover paintings...
