Greatest Horror Films of 1986

josamaroo
1986 is the greatest year for horror films ever. It's not just my opinion but if you look at the sheer quality of these films and how popular they've gone on to become, most horror fans will agree. Honestly it's hard to pick 10 because so many are great and this list is easily a best horror movies ever list but coincidentally were all released within the same 12 months.

The Top TenXW

1Aliens

There are so many great horror movies from 86 it's hard to pick the #1 film but with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 98% and a box-office draw close to $200 Million, there's no denying Aliens is the best. - josamaroo

2The Fly

The Fly could easily be #1 but in my opinion this is a love story and without all of the action/suspense Aliens has to offer, it is very hard to compete. - josamaroo

3Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

This is the greatest phycological thriller. Henry is a film that just gets scarier and scarier as it goes along but the scariest part is it is based on a true story. - josamaroo

4From Beyond

What a twisted sexual fantasy/horror film. I love the beginning and the build-up to end is great too. This is the only film Stuart Gordon directed that is as good as Re-Animator. - josamaroo

5Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives

Best Friday the 13th film and was made in the greatest year of horror. This adds a little comedy but definitely not over the top and Jason has some great kills. Plus the only film in the series that actually has kids going to camp. - josamaroo

6Manhunter

The first film in the Hannibal Lector series and besides Silence of the Lambs, it is the best. Great thriller too. - josamaroo

7Troll

There are much better horror films from 86 but Troll is very bizarre. The whole thing with Sonny Bono is crazy and as a kid it freaked me out. - josamaroo

8HOUSE

Great horror movie with a jump scare that will knock your socks off. - josamaroo

9Night of the Creeps

Fantastic horror film that starts as an alien film and becomes a zombie film. Plus great acting as well. - josamaroo

10The Texas Chainsaw Massacre II

Not the best Texas Chainsaw Massacre film but it has a great start and a great ending. - josamaroo

The Contenders

11Maximum Overdrive

The only Stephen King Film he actually directed and just a very cool film. - josamaroo

12The Hitcher

That dude just don't give up. I love this film. - josamaroo

13Critters

The movie about the little fury guys ergo like to eat people. - josamaroo

14Little Shop of Horrors

This one could easily be in the top 10. Awesome music. - josamaroo

15Witchboard

The first and I think the best film based on the Ouija Board - josamaroo

16The Wraith

Charlie Sheen movie with some cool music and an anti-hero killer. - josamaroo

17Chopping Mall

Robots killing people who are stuck in a mall. - josamaroo
