Being made during the classic era certainly gave it an edge. I mean if it weren't for the ending it would've been the perfect holiday horror movie!

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

On Golden Pond (1981)
9/10

"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.

ALICE, SWEET ALICE (1976). Awful title (COMMUNION would have been better), but absolutely superlative film that really delivers the goods, despite the budget and the promotion of Brooke Shields. Many creepy aspects here and I found it interesting that despite all of the Religious subtext in here, all these people are truly damned, especially the lovely Linda Miller (Jason Miller of THE EXORCIST wife, mother of Joshua Jackson of NEAR DARK and also pretty good in 1978's AN UNMARRIED WOMA). ****

TWISTED NIGHTMARE 1987

A group of teenagers are reunited at a summer cottage where 2 years previously another teen with the same group had died. They are all pretty much killed off.
The end.

THE ENTITY-!982. Barbara Hershey is very very good in here, but the endless brutal attacks are hard to take and once it dips into SUPERNATURAL territory (the Two guys in the bookstore), it does lose some steam. Worth a watch. **1/2

It sure was a bold film... actually putting her into a Plexiglas enclosure to test for an actual 'entity'. I've never seen that before or since. Only saw Entity (or some of it) once a long time ago. May have to check it out again.

Truly, one of the most underrated cannibal flicks.
Also, Michael Sopkiw needs to come back dammit!
