Top 200 Horror films 1980 - 1989

A lot of people have made a "Top 100 Favorite Horror Films" list but that's physically impossible for me. If you look at my other lists you'll see that I've done top 100 horror films per decade. Considering that I find the 1980s as one of the best decades for horror, I've doubled the list.

This is very, very roughly ranked from favorite to I still love it..
