The Top 5 Horror Movies of 1991


Continuing on with the 90's and onto 1991.  There is not really a whole lot to choose from in 1991 but there are some quality horror movies that were made.  This year saw a few slashers, including Chucky taking another crack at Andy Barclay.  Chucky didn't make my list with his 3rd installment but he is still one of my favorite slashers.


Jeff Fahey stars in Body Parts as a Doctor who loses his arm and gets a donor arm from a serial killer.  This movie is loads of fun and I highly recommend checking this one out if you haven't already.  I did not see this one till 2004 or so and don't really know why I waited that long.

This one probably isn't on alot of people's top 5 list of 1991 but I love this movie.  I am a sucker for all of the Omen movies and this one is no different.  It was a made for TV movie so it's probably not as great as it could be but Asia Vieira who plays Damien Thorne's offspring is creepy as fuck!

Wes Craven was at it again with this one and what a creepy little film it is.  It's not so much scary as original and just a change of pace and a jolt to the horror industry that was needed after huge number of slasher films that just filled the 80's.

It's no secret that I am a Full Moon fan.  It all started with Puppet Master and now here is the sequel, that isn't as popular by the way.  I no way is this a really good movie but it is fun and I love those killer puppets.  This was also the introduction of the puppet Torch.


Full Moon actually made 2 puppet master movies in 1991 but released them a year apart.  Part III is the first Puppet Master movie I ever saw and it is the one that go me hooked.  This one is a prequel to the original and is by far the best of the series.  The role of Andre Toulon was taken over by Guy Rolfe and he delivered a fantastic performance.
