Monsters Of The Eighties

In honor of the coming holiday, I'd like to delve into the monsters of the eighties.

It was a time of great horrors. We were introduced to monsters in our dreams, scary dolls, cars with personalities, vampires, and so much more.

My favorite was Freddy Kreugar: Nightmare on Elm Street. What could be scarier than having someone stalk you in your dreams? The only escape is to stay awake. You can only do that for so long. The producers went on to introduce sequels to the original, but none were as good as the first. Now there is a remake coming out. I wonder if it will even come close to the introduction of this wonderfully horrifying nightmare.

Who was your favorite? Why?

I am not a big horror fan, but if I had to pick, the movies/monsters that stick out and I recall are:

Aliens. I liked the 2nd movie better than the first. More action and interesting characters.

Swamp Thing. I was still into comic books and such, so this kind of fit.
