With an average IMDb score of 6.3 from over 27 horror movies released in 1981 you could say it was actually a pretty good year for horror movies. Sure there were some duds (Piranha Part Two: The Spawning, Cannibal Ferox), but we also got some real gems like The Evil Dead (1981) and Yong zhe wu ju (1981) to name just a few. As horror fans we've come to expect a wide ranging degree of quality from our vice but in 1981 we did pretty good.So grab some snacks and a drink (and maybe something to hide behind) and check out reviews, ratings and trailers for the 1981 - Top 20 Horror Movies ranked by Metacritic.
