I'm a lover of 80's horror. Any suggestions on the more obscure films? I know of plenty, but surely there are some I'm not aware of which might be worth watching.

It can be a film which some may consider to be bad. I honestly enjoy dated effects, bad acting, etc. Quality entertainment!

From Beyond is my favorite 80's horror film. Dolls is a little less known.

Sleepaway Camp! And then watch the sequels! My fave of all time!

I just finished Return of The Living Dead (yes, I had never seen it). If you want a "bad" film, check it out.

I really liked Critters, because it had alien bounty hunters. And let the creatures be vulnerable to weapons. THe best film of the 80s is from 1989: Tremors.

Believe it or don't, Ulli Lommel's early films are quite creative and worth watching.
Starting with The Boogeyman (1980, not to be confused with any other by that title).
Also not bad: 'Olivia' (1983,) 'The Devonsville Terror'.

'Dead & Buried' (1981, Gary Sherman) is one of my favorites.

I don't watch many "cheesy" horror of the '80s. 'Chopping Mall' is dumb fun. Can't think of any others at the moments. . .

Two Tobe Hooper films that are often overlooked, both THE FUNHOUSE and LIFEFORCE are loads of fun! (LIFEFORCE was once described to me in this way, "If you're up at 2am flipping TV channels, hoping to find something surprising to watch, THIS is the film you're looking for!)

Razorback: Jaws in the outback....with a pig instead of a shark....and feral aussies all over the shop.
Road Games: Killer-on-the-road thriller. Again with the outback! Jamie Lee Curtis and Stacy Keach. Directed by Richard Franklin. Underrated.
Turkey Shoot/Escape 2000: Franklin again. Dystopian horror. Uber violent.
