Guess The Films From These 80s Horror Movie Taglines

*Insert cheesy line here.*

Columbia Pictures

The 80s was home to some of the finer things in life. Lycra, Jane Fonda, and of course, the rise of bloody murder and gory death from the reign of the slasher villain, as the horror genre hurtled into the mainstream. The horror industry as a whole produced some of its very best work as it came to roaring popularity, and simultaneously, some of the very best one liners came about to sell it with.

But just how familiar are you with the cheesy taglines that defined a generation?

The heart of film posters for corny practical effect monster movies, of suspense-driven slow-burns, and everything else in between, these are the short and snappy words that drew you into the cinema or sent you packing in the other direction. Either way, they made sure they're memorable, so you at least get a laugh if they didn't scare you silly.

And don't worry if obscure 80s taglines aren't your forte. Whilst you should be embarrassed and get reading up on some spooky, you can find the answers to all 20 questions at the end of the quiz.
