Well, kiddies, it's a little over a month until Halloween. We've discussed favorite horror movies and scariest horror movies. So I thought we'd talk about those obscure horror flicks we like that a lot of other people haven't heard about. We all know Halloween, Friday the 13th, and the Elm St. movies. But what about those lesser known ones? I mentioned on another post that I found Funeral Home on Ebay. I watched it and it was pretty good for such an old movie. I found The Hearse and Mountaintop Motel Massacre on Amazon. I remember seeing the Hearse years ago,but not Mountaintop.

So what are your votes for obscure 80s horror?

Helen_S,

The thing about pigs is that, they WILL eat you if they want to. Talk to any pig farmer and he'll tell you; don't pass out in the pig pen because they will attack you, and consume you.

YUK!!! CREEPY!!! [Eek!]

I saw a blaxpoitation movie called SUGAR HILL where someone got threw in the pigpen and eaten...and I didndt believe it possible! Really? Are pigs that dangerous? Who knew?!

A few lesser known gems I like:

THE OTHER: One of those good twin, evil twin stories.

THE CHANGELING: Man moves into new mansion only to find its haunted by a dead little kid

PEP SQUAD: Really strange Black Comedy twist on Teen Horror Movies.

The Changeling was just a creepy movie. I really enjoyed it.

Is Mountaintop really good? I've heard good and bad reviews. I bought it, but haven't received it yet.

Pulse (1988) - a demon in the wires which is a little similar to Ghost in the Machine (1993)
From Beyond (1986) - perfect halloween horror fodder material, scary creatures 'leak' in from another dimension
The Tomb (1986) - egyptian treasure seekers get a bit more than they bargained for (warning: high cheese content)
Brain Dead (1990) - trippy & surreal journey through someone's (Bill Pullman) visions as his mind is being manipulated (or something, I did say it was trippy & surreal)
The Brain (1988) - a big alien brain tries to control the world by first starting in a small town

I have stacks of obscure 80s horror flicks, the problem is they're obscure to me - I can't find half of them because they're buried under other VHS tapes!

anybody remember a 80s flick where a teddy bear gets its eye ripped off and it starts to bleed? the heat of the night, or something?
