Speaking of Rats: Night of Terror I would also reccomend Hell of the Living Dead. It's a zombie movie that is so bad that it's good and those were both made by the same director

First, I'd recommend checking this out. A team of very experienced horror film aficionados put together a list and description of the best (twenty-two) 1980's horror films here in this forum thread (just scroll down to the 80s): http://horror.com/forum/showthread.php?t=63436&page=3


Based on you liking the Demons, you might films from the same or similar Italian directors: The Beyond (1981), Zombi2, Phenomena, Cemetery Man.


But you also liked Evil Dead 2, Fright Night and Near Dark, so I just think you have a good taste in many types of horror, so I'll just give some 80's horror I think you'd like as well:

Scanners (1981)
The Thing (1982)
The Fly (1986)
Re-Animator (1985)
Videodrome (1983)
Poltergeist (1982)
The Howling (1981)
Day of the Dead (1985)
Christine (1983)
The Funhouse (1981)
Aliens (1987)
The Howling (1981)
The Shining (1980)
Poltergeist (1982)

I heard City of the Living Dead and The Beyond are both good. They're both Italian movies made by Lucio Fulci, the guy who directed Zombie aka Zombi 2.

Some good recommendations and I would like to throw in some of my choices You might enjoy:
THE LADY IN WHITE (1988)
BRAIN DAMAGE (1988)
FRIDAY, THE 13th (1980). An obvious choice and surprised not to see it listed. I still think it holds up well, but the sequels are to be approached very carefully.
NIGHTMARE IN A DAMAGED BRAIN (1981)
CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE (1980) AKA INVASION OF THE FLESH HUNTERS
THE BOOGENS (1981)
DEAD AND BURIED (1981)
HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP (1980)
NIGHT OF THE CREEPS (1986)
PSYCHO 3 (1986)
THE TERMINATOR (1984)
ZOMBIE (1980)
