10 Alternative 80s Horror Movies You Need To Watch

Last updated:

Critters (1986)

Critters is probably the most famous movie on our list but it really is tragically underappreciated.

Many called it a Gremlins rip-off but it’s far from it.

Essentially a small farm in Kansas is under siege by fluffy balls from outer space with razor-sharp teeth.

It sounds silly and it kind of is but Critters actually holds up as a genuine horror movie where-as Gremlins was way more mainstream.

This is a proper adult horror and is actually pretty scary in places so certainly shouldn’t be passed over as just fluffy creatures from space.

So those are our ten best alternative 80’s horror movies you need to watch, how many of them have you seen and are there some you think we should have included?

Why not let us know in the comments and if you haven’t seen them why not check them out and let us know what you think.
