The Best Of 80s Horror: The Top 10 Horror Movies From 1987


I realize that every time I complete a new top 10 list, I insist that the year I'm doing is one of the best years for horror. But, there's a good reason for this: the "golden era" of horror, in my subjective view, was certainly this period of the mid-to-late 80s. Specifically, we saw an incredible selection of movies from 1985 - 1988. Consequently, 1987 was indeed another one of the very  best years that the genre ever saw. From absolute classics like Evil Dead II and Hellraiser to notorious cheese fests like Blood Diner, 1987 proved to extremely memorable. Below I've included what I deem to be the top 10 horror movies from 1987. Enjoy!
