Really glad you said this, as it's a point I bring up many times on this forum. I realize that a lot of posters here were either not alive in the 80s, or at least too young to be a horror fan. Seriously, for someone to have lived through the "golden age" of theatrically viewing 80s slasher films, they'd be in their 50s now. Like me. And not all of them were that good. One thing we get to do now is cherry pick the good films of the era. So we see the 80s as a gold mine (because there are a shit ton of great flicks from then) while ignoring the crap that came in between the good films. Now that most of the good films have made their way to some kind of Blu-Ray or at least DVD edition, we're left with the crap. Sure, they may have some merits, and the style of the era is fun to see now, but really there's a reason a lot stayed buried while the Burnings and Bloody Valentines and Hell Nights always had some kind of following.
