Bleeding Skull 50: The Best Trash-Horror Films of the 1980s
Cocaine. The Eighties wouldn't have happened without it. This was the sleazy, frenetic era of 24-hour parties, teased hair, trashy lingerie, and false metal. It was a time when filmmakers picked up cameras to translate their coke-fueled visions to the screen, without irony, self-awareness, or even experience. The Eighties gave us some of the most iconic horror films to come out of studios, but it also gave us an endless treasure of amateur work that often eclipsed their big-budget brothers. And that's what this list is all about. The Bleeding Skull! team brings you our 50 favorite trash-horror films from the 1980s. These movies changed our lives. They will thrill, amuse, disgust, and terrify you, and they'll give you a deep appreciation for aerobics, possessed cats, and killers in copper masks. Also cocaine. It's not cranberry sauce, but it is Garbage Day! Please enjoy.
