Episode 63: 1980’s Horror Films, Part Two

In this episode of Welcome To The Party Pal, hosts Michael Shields and Mitch Lucas conclude a two part exploration of, and an ode to, 1980’s horror films. In what was a truly game-changing decade, rife with unfathomable ingenuity and creativity, 1980’s horror films launched franchises, birthed tropes that define the genre to this day, and redefined possibilities in filmmaking, not just for horror movies, but for cinema in general. This episode focuses on the most successful and/or beloved films of the decade. Sharpening their focus on ground-breaking cinematic experiences such as Poltergeist, Gremlins, Friday The 13th, Aliens, The Gate, and A Nightmare on Elm Street, this episode highlights why the horror films of this era still resonate with audiences of all ages, and cause one to recoil in consideration of those things that go bump in the night.
