For your enjoyment, here is a list of the best 80s monster movies. Monster movies were less prevalent in the 80s compared to decades before, but surprisingly there are some really good ones here. From the remake of The Fly to the first sequel to Alien (and possibly the best of the bunch) to Cliver Barker’s Hellraiser, this decade is out to impress.
Prominent on this 1980s monster film list is Nightmare on Elm Street, the film that made falling asleep terrifying and spawned four sequels during the decade. You will also find, John Carpenter’s The Fog, Friday the 13th (which spawned another brand that just keeps going) and Teen Wolf with Michael J. Fox.
So, which of the movies on this list of good 1980s monster films gave you the willies? Vote up the top 80s monster movies and make sure to add any we might have missed.
