    Hi.

    I just love 80s horror and everything related to that era, but as much as we love something, there´s always something that escapes us under the radar.

    Recently I blind bought two movies from the 80s that have no logic whatsoever and are totally crazy and out of this world:

    01- Hard Rock Zombies
    02- The Spookies

    I really liked them and had a blast.

    So, I was wondering if you guys could help me (and others who dig this sort of thing), and name a few more movies from the 80s that are on the same page as the ones I mentioned.

    I'm not sure if these are to your liking, but two of my favorite 80s "weird" horror flicks are

    Psychos in Love - more of a comedy, but weird self-aware fun none-the-less
    Dr. Caligari - made by the weird director of Cafe Flesh in a bid to go main stream - sort of

    I love Hard Rock Zombies! Check out Rock n Roll Nightmare, if you haven't already.

    Mortuary (1983) ~ A hooded killer, disco music, satanism and Bill Paxton as a creepy high school Nerd.
    The Black Room (1983) ~ Body Double set up with a new twist on vampirism.
    Evils of the Night (1985) ~ Sex, nudity, sleazy torture porn and aliens from outer space!

    Nightmare Weekend (1986) ~ Hand-puppet computer terror with zombified high school girls and flying spheres!
    Terror at Tenkiller (1986) ~ Slow burning vacation slasher. So naive its simply charming (gotta love the casio soundtrack).

    Twice Dead (1988) ~ Big hair and 80s fashion galore.
    Primal Rage (1988) ~ Mutant killer ape, deadly virus outbreak, goo-dripping gore and one hell of a Halloween party.
    Night Visitor (1989) ~ Fright Night rip off with Satan-worshipper instead of Vampires.
    Welcome to Spring Break (1989) ~ Italian Psycho-Slasher trying hard to be American.
