    Razorback - classic Aussie horror about a massive wild boar.
    Lifeforce - probably more sci-fi than horror, but such a wild, bizarre film.
    Tenebre - probably my favourite horror/slasher film of all time, the visuals and soundtrack are brilliant.
    Opera - not one of Argento's best but I love it.
    Lair Of The White Worm - Not a typical horror film, rather off-beat and bizarre.
    Santa Sangre - Another bizarre horror film, this time from Chilian maestro Alejandro Jodorowsky

  9. 'The Hidden' is quite good. But avoid' The Hidden 2' at all cost.

    The Howling

    April Fool's Day

    These should cover your preference for films that are not gory. Many others have chimed in on a lot of definitive 80's horror films.

    I watched those back then and I liked the comedy in the second one.

    Night of the Comet is a pretty fun "everyone has perished except for a small handful of survivors and oh yeah the zombies too" type movie. You can tell it's an 80s movie by just looking at the hair.

    Bad Dreams (1988) - when I was in my early teens this movie scared me. I watched it again not too long ago and I thought it was alright, not as scary but still ok, decent twist also.

    Is The Hidden the one that uses Concrete Blonde's debut album as the soundtrack?

    Near Dark for sure.
    How about the Changeling (1980 with George C. Scott)?

    The original Creepshow (1982) is essential.
