Horror Amino Poll Results: Top 5 80’s Horror Movies

The 80’s brought us an endless list of incredible horror films and characters that are still adored by fans today. The cult classics have some of the most loyal, dedicated fans when compared to the modern horror films (which are mostly remakes of the classics). The 80’s were without a doubt the best decade for horror (giving us fan favorite characters like Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Ash Williams). I asked you guys to help rank 5 of the most popular 80’s horror films on the Horror Amino app.
