The 80s really did kick the slasher genre up several notches (or slashes) and today I am sharing with you the best slasher movies of the 80s! Having grown up in the 80s and 90s, slasher movies are something that I am a huge fan of – so to help make this list more fun and interesting, only one entry per franchise is allowed here! This made the list tricker to put together, but it also gives you more of a variety of slasher movies to track down and watch.

If your favorite slasher movie of the 80s is not on this list, do not send Michael, Freddy, or Jason after me! This is my list at the end of the day, and you can have some fun by putting your own best slasher movies of the 80s list together.
