The year was 1980 and with the success of the independent movie called Halloween the horror scene was about to take off in full force. Other than that it was also the year this writer was born. I know I know I just gave away my age. Here are my picks for the top horror films of 1980.
Jamie Lee Curtis was well on her way to becoming a horror scream queen. 1980 was a pretty big year for her with the release of 3 movies in the horror genre, this being one of them. Oddly enough though this is the only one that made my list.
Joe Spinell jumps up on the hood of the car in slow motion and unloads the shotgun on Tom Savini is awesome. You really can't go wrong when Tom is at the helm of the effects.
Jack Nicholson is really at his madman best in this film and still to this day is one of the best horror movies ever made.
