Cool poster indeed. 80's horror? I was just thinking the same thing while sitting at work looking at options for Horrorfest. I don't have a formal list per say, as I tend to go with the flow. But there are a few for sures that I can name right now.
-House of 1000 Corpses(I haven't decided if this will be reserved for Oct 1 or Oct 31 yet. It will be watched at some point though, because to me, there is no Horrorfest without HOTC)
-Trick or Treat (This is another one that will be in the regular Oct. rotation)
-Pumpkinhead (Can't remember much about this so it'll be good to see it again)
-Dark Night of the Scarecrow
-Insidious (Bought it when it first came out. Was very slightly disappointed but am willing to give it another chance as I was quite intoxicated the 1st time)
-Antichrist (On a recommendation from this forum, I watched this during the winter I believe. Its added to the list so that my wife can see it this time)
-The Commune (Ordered this yesterday based on some very good reviews)
-The Possession of David O'Reilly
others that are in the Blockbuster queue that may or may not make the list:
-Jekyll (The BBC series)
-A Horrible Way to Die
-Ginger Snaps (although I tried this last year, and BB kept sending me the sequel rather than the original)
-The Troll Hunter
The rest is up in the air. I have several movies that I already own that I would like to check out again. There are also some great recommendations that have been listed in the thread that I may end up watching.
And just for Fenders, I will most likely give Friday the 13th Pt IV a day in court. Perhaps his recommended choice of spices will need to be implemented to set the mood correctly.
In response to the recommendations for movies that are acceptable for children, I would strongly recommend against Poltergeist. Like someone else mentioned, the face tear and the clown under the bed scene may be too much for a kid to handle.
