Horror by Year: 1982

Posted in Horror by Year with tags , , , , on April 14, 2013 by Last Road Reviews

Here’s my top 10 of 1982, which was a solid year, but as a list its not the strongest year. But I enjoyed all the films in my top 10. I know some people will disagree with my rating for the Thing. I like the film, but just never loved it as much as most Carpenter fans. Many cite that as one of if not his best. I’m a massive Carpenter fan, but it doesn’t crack my top 5. But again I do like the film just not as much as other people. Maybe one day that will change.

These lists are a work in progress as there will always be films left out since I either haven’t seen them (its not easy to track down certain titles and can be a bit expensive). Also there are films i haven’t seen in years and cannot fairly rate them. So at anytime the list can be altered.

10. Living Dead Girl- *** ½


9. Madman- *** ½


8. Pieces- *** ½


7. The Thing- – *** ½


6. Halloween 3- *** ½


5. The Dorm That Dripped Blood- *** ½


4. Friday the 13th Part 3- ****


3. The Slumber Party Massacre- ****


2. Tenebre- ****


1. The New York Ripper- ****

This is my first Horror by Year blog where I’ll give my top picks of the whatever year I go with. No reason for starting with 1974, but this was a fantastic year for the horror genre. There are certain films I haven’t seen and some I haven’t seen in a while to fairly rate. So at anytime this list can be edited. I don’t wanna add films to reach a certain number. So I went with my 6 favorites of the year.

6. Silent Night, Bloody Night- *** Out of 5


5. Frightmare- **** Out of 5


4. House of Whipcord- **** Out of 5


3. Living Dead at Manchester Morgue- **** Out of 5


2. Black Christmas- ***** Out of 5


1. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre- ***** Out of 5
