I've seen 13 of these including the top 5 all of which are favourites. Some really bad ones further down the list but which I still enjoy on a personal level including Maximum Overdrive, The Wraith and King Kong Lives. Whatever the case, a really fun and action filled year for Horror fans.

Didn't see many of these in the theater.  I waited a year before seeing many of these, when I moved to Auburn, WA and we had a VCR and rented tons of flicks.
I saw The Fly at the theater.  Pretty good flick.
I saw Little Shop of Horrors at the Valley Theater in Beaverton, OR.  Fun movie, even if you don't like musicals (like me).
Maximum Overdrive I saw at a Seattle area drive in.  Bad, and IMO seldom in a good way.
Friday the 13th part VI was the best in the series.

IMO Aliens and The Fly are tied for best  good movie of this list. And Maximum Overdrive is the winner for most entertaining b movie.

What I wouldn't give to see Deadtime Stories and Terrorvision in theatres back then - thought they were straight-to-video.

    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.
