What a spectacular year for horror, wow!  I graduated from high school in '82 so it's a very special year for me.  I've seen most of these, but I'll have to check out Silent Rage - Chuck Norris vs. some invincible science experiment?  LOL, I can't believe I've never seen that.

I've seen 7 of these. Do recall seeing bits and pieces of Poltergeist as a kid and being genuinely very creeped out by the tree most of all and also by the clown doll. Again a Friday the 13th sequel placed much higher than it really should have. I really enjoyed Visiting Hours when I saw it years later - found it a pretty suspenseful film.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
