Top 5 Horror Films of 1986


We are now entering the late 80's which just so happens to be one of my favorite.  1986 is where the slasher films are starting to make a small comeback, and Jason returns from the dead for the first time.  This is also the year that holds my favorite horror movie of all time.


April Fools Day is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.  I just watched it this past Sunday as a matter of fact.  Not meant to be scary or even taken seriously just a great dark comedy with a fantastic cast.  Including former Friday the 13th alum Amy Steel.

There are probably alot of people who are not going to agree with this pick but I really do love this movie.  He may have been one of the hardest actors to work with on this film but Klaus Kinski is brilliant as tenant landlord and former MD Karl Gunther.

I just saw this movie not too long ago but it has easily become on of my favorite movies to watch.  The fun factor in this movie is through the roof and probably my favorite movie that stars Tom "Thrill Me" Adkins

This year has been a big year for Blu Ray releases thanks to Scream Factory.  Finally getting the blu ray treatment it deserves.  Tawny Kitaen really is a horrible actress but it doesn't take away from the greatness that is Witchboard.  The sequel Witchboard 2 also got a Blu Ray release this year but we will be talking about this one in the 90's.

Here is it my favorite movie of all time Friday the 13th Part VI.  I could not get enough of this movie when I was younger and that hasn't changed over the years.  The first film when Jason actually raises from the dead and becomes a zombie.  The mixture of Jason and dark humor in this film made it great.
