Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

Just make it easy and go with what Lon said, my list would be mostly the same, but with more David Cronenberg. The Brood and Videodrome are musts.

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

Yeah I'm with Lon for the most part smile

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

^^^ These folks know what they're talking about. big_smile

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

thanx guys

i still didnt watched Monster Squad
but i have it..it is good?

=====

any other movies too? Texas Cahinsaw remake or original better?

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

Original. I found the remake lacked all the things that made the original so good.

All of Romero's zombie flicks. Again leave the remakes out apart from the Dawn of the dead, which is on par with it's original.

Fright Night and The Lost Boys, both stand up Vampire flicks.

Take a good look at the Giallo period too. Lon has listed the best ones in his lists but it's a great time from the 70's and 80's that has inspired some of the great slashers and serial killer movies we have today.

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

Personally I think the remake sucks balls, but that's just me.  It does have its fans.

Monster Squad -- basically Goonies meets Universal Monsters with a strong Spielberg/Zemeckis vibe.  A fun watch, IMO.

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

thanx guys..really appreciate it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giallo

Mother Of Tears is done by the master of giallo, signor Ario Argento so...

Some like it some don't like for everything too but I LOOOVED it. And it features his daughter the beautifully gorgeous Asia.

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

Mother of Tears isn't a giallo; it's supernatural horror, and the third and final film in Argento's "Three Mothers" Trilogy.  Supposedly the script was actually written way back in the '80s but Argento for myriad reasons never made it.  Finally he hired a couple American writers to dust it off, and release the flick in '07 -- 27 years after the last installment. 

Personally I think it falls in with most of Argento's latter works, which is to say it's a far cry from the genius he displyed in the 70s and 80s.  It does have its moments, just not a lot of 'em (again, IMO).

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

Who said it was a giallo???

And well like I said, some like it some don't like.

You and me are the proof of that. lol
I still like what he's done recently.

But yeah I read about that thing that he wrote it back then.

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

i feel like im asking to much about movies
there's some movies i wanna ask u about

is it ok? or im disturbing u guys?

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

Kidding right? It's what this site was made for! Ask away!

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

^^^ What she said.  We're happy to help. smile

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

I loved Mother of Tears, but it's not as good as Argento's best from 70's and 80's. Still it's an enjoyable supernatural horror film that ends up becoming a splatterfest.

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

I never find anything disturbing so go ahead, I can take it. lol

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

^^
Could it be Severed Ties (1992) (IMDB link)?
Trailer for Severed Ties, with a bonus for Children of the Night (also a funky movie).

Re: what is the Best 70s and 80s horror/mystery movies ?

90s giallo-   
(Yes kids, I had to cheat on some of these)

Trauma (Dario Argento, 1992)
Misteria (Lamberto Bava, 1992) aka Body Puzzle
Dangerous Attraction (Bruno Mattei, 1993)
Eyes Without a Face (Bruno Mattei, 1994)
The Stendhal Syndrome (Dario Argento, 1996)
Fatal Frames (Al Festa, 1996)  A LoudLon special!
Wax Mask (Sergio Stivaletti, 1997)
Sleepless (Dario Argento, 2001)

By far and away Fatal Frames is the best one, ever!  Just ask Lon, lol !  It's so great you can't find a copy of it anywhere, lol !!!
