This isn't horror, for most people, but it's the last 80's film I saw.

On Golden Pond (1981)

"Norman is a curmudgeon with an estranged relationship with his daughter Chelsea. At Golden Pond, he and his wife nevertheless agree to care for Billy, the son of Chelsea's new boyfriend, and a most unexpected relationship blooms."

Watched it a second time since seeing it at the theatre (I'm pretty sure, though I not sure why I saw it at the theatre). I remember it so well, so I skipped some of the early parts and the ending with Henry Fonda & Hepburn, but 90% of the middle I watched, really good material: funny, insightful, sharp and heartwarming. Best part for me is still when the new boyfriend (Dabney Coleman) is asking Norman (Henry Fonda) if it's ok if he sleeps with Norman's daughter while staying with them at the lake home, and Norman gives him a hard time. Classic stuff.
